Once upon a time there were two best friends named Oliver Queen and Slade Wilson. Trapped on an increasingly undeserted island, the two formed a bond that would last a lifetime-ish. At least the eight minutes it takes to complete LEGO Batman 3's downloadable Arrow adventure.
Available today for the low price of $2.99, LEGO Batman 3's Arrow DLC is barely as long as one of Oliver Queen's frequent flashbacks, but it's likely the most fun series star Stephen Amell (sometimes pronounced however I pronounce it in the video below) has had since he started working on the show two and a half seasons ago.
If you don't mind spoilers, check out the video below of me playing through the bite-sized adventure.
Very short, but incredibly sweet. Never before have Oliver Queen and his best friend forever Slade Wilson been so similarly built. And while the adventure doesn't really amount to much in the grand scheme of things, I would have paid $2.99 for the nine new playable characters alone, so it all works out.
Here's a round-up of the new minifigures, complete with minor spoilers and major lies.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, I can't help but feel a little sad that we aren't getting any Flash downloadable content for the game. Then again, it's the clash of tone between Arrow and LEGO that really makes this pack sing, so maybe we're better off without TV's Barry Allen.
