Sonic, E.T., Gollum, Batman and Adventure Time Are All Going To be In The Same Video Game

Is this the greatest video game roster of all time? The folks behind the Lego Dimensions just unveiled the characters and series they’re featuring in the game’s second year, starting in September: Sonic the Hedgehog, Adventure Time, Mission Impossible, the A-Team, the Goonies, Knight Rider, the Powerpuff Girls, Gremlins, Beetlejuice and ET. All in one game. All as Lego. Joining the existing cast of Batman, Scooby-Doo, and more. That’s nuts!

Here’s the trailer:

And here’s the PR breakdown:

LEGO Dimensions packs based on 16 new entertainment properties will begin launching on September 27, 2016 with the Ghostbusters Story Pack, Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible Level Packs, Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and The A-Team Fun Pack. Additional expansion packs based on other highly anticipated films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The LEGO Batman Movie and wildly popular properties The Goonies, Sonic The Hedgehog, Teen Titans Go!, LEGO City Undercover, Knight Rider, The Powerpuff Girls, Gremlins, Beetlejuice and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial will be released in product waves stretching into summer of next year. All expansion packs provide players with continued compatibility to use everything from waves 1-9 interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game. And no new starter pack is required, as all new packs will simply enhance the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack game and work with the existing LEGO Toy Pad.

The Lego Dimensions series consists of actual Lego sets and figures that connect to video game levels tied to those toys. It’s main competition is Activision’s Skylanders and the now-defunct Disney Infinity line. Dimensions is made for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U.

All these sets will probably cost a lot of money total, but, wow. What a roster. Harry Potter and Slimer finally together! Plus these guys, too.

Reposting my comment on io9:

There you go, people. Our first official Tom Cruise and Mr. T LEGO minifigures. Sort of. Though I kinda think A-Team and Mission: Impossible seen a little too violent for LEGO.

Anyway... holy shit, look at all those characters. And you say they can cross-over between worlds and have teams composed of Hunt, Bubbles, and LSP? Jesus.

And to think that LEGO also carries licenses for Marvel, Star Wars, and Disney. What more if Disney concedes and lets loose Dimensions packs for them?
