GC 2012: Traveller’s Tales Brings Campiness Back in Newest LEGO Lord of the Rings Trailer

on August 16, 2012 9:15 AM

Traveller’s Tales has established a reputation of transforming some of our most beloved intellectual properties into playful, fun LEGO games while still maintaining adult themes and humor. The games have a delightful amount of camp that makes them accessible to both children and adults alike.

The newest iteration in the LEGO series will be based on the Lord of the Rings film series. The trailer does not reveal anything we did not already know about the game, though it does show a plethora of the game’s environments and the entire lineup of playable characters. If the experience is anything like the one I had with LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, then we have a lot to look forward to.

LEGO Lord of the Rings will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii, 3DS, DS, PS Vita, and PC in October of this year – A release on the Wii U is rumored. You can watch the new trailer below.
