NYCC 2014: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Few games out there can capture both a great sense of humor and great gameplay, but TT Games manages to do that with every iteration of their LEGO gaming franchise.  From the LEGO Star Wars games to LEGO Batman to LEGO Harry Potter to LEGO City Undercover to LEGO Marvel Super Heroes… the list goes on but all of them match easy, comfortable gameplay with a fun wit, making just about every LEGO game a joy to play.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham looks to continue that trend.

Following the success of 2012’s LEGO Batman 2 (which introduced free roam and voice acting) and 2013’s LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (which introduced throwing every character you can think of into a game), LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is set to take Batman and a whole swath of DC heroes and villains onto different planets in the DC Universe to combat the oncoming Brainiac menace.

At NYCC, I had the chance to talk with game director Arthur Parsons and asst. game director Stephen Sharples about the design philosophy behind the game, while Tek chatted with uber-talented voice actor Troy Baker about the recording process and his roles across the justice spectrum.  Watch the video now!

LEGO Batman 3: Beyod Gotham comes out on November 11 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and PlayStation Vita.
