I had to use that Jurassic Park quote, because Samuel L. Jackson appears in both of these franchises so it all just made so much holistic sense that it blew my fragile, too-early-in-the-morning mind.
So LEGO games! There are quite a few of them, but they all have this overwhelming charm, don’t they? I still maintain that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the best superhero video game ever made. I think that Traveller’s Tales’ success has something to do with the fact that they tend to LEGO-fy franchises that are already adored by the geek collective. Well, now we can add two more franchises to that list: Jurassic Park and The Avengers.
LEGO Jurassic World will be out in June to coincide with the release of the fourth film in the long-running dino franchise. The game will follow the typical LEGO game formula, bringing a mix of platforming and action sequences. LEGO Jurassic World will feature all four of the Jurassic Park movies to date, so expect a host of playable characters and iconic locations.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is out in spring time for us here in South Africa, and will feature characters and scenes from the first Avengers movie as well as the upcoming sequel, Age of Ultron. Despite the fact that the characters from The Avengers were all present and playable in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, this is the first LEGO game to come out under The Avengers banner.
Both games are heading to pretty much every platform under the sun, including the Wii U.
