If there’s one LEGO game that has the ability to excite, it is certainly Lego Dimensions. Not only will it have collectible figures like Skylanders and Amiibo, but it will also include well-known licensed franchises, such as Back to the Future and Doctor Who. Today, two more packs have been revealed: Midway Arcade and the Simpsons.
Per the official press release, “The Simpsons level within the Starter Pack incorporates a cel-shaded art style, for a look that is true to the original, animated series and unique from other levels.” The press release states that two unlikely villains, The Joker and Lord Business from The Lego Movie, will be teaming up against the Simpsons. The Starter Pack will come with Homer, and the smaller Fun Packs will include minifigures of Bart and Krusty the Clown.
The second half of the announcement is the reveal of the Midway Arcade Level. In this level, “Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle find themselves in a video game, where they must race in Super Sprint, smash their way through hordes of enemies in Gauntlet, save Astronauts in Defender and defeat robots in Robotron.” This Starter Pack comes with a Retro Gamer minifigure and an entire level with “20 arcade games to beat.”
With these two announcements, Lego Dimensions continues to grow in size and intrigue.
Lego Dimensions drops September 29th for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
