Classic Midway goodness lands in LEGO Dimensions, along with some iconic DC Comics and Ghostbusters characters.
Neat stuff there, especially if you’re a gamer from way back. Honestly, while the free-roaming ‘modern’ action looks great there, I’m way more excited about the classic arcade games like Paperboy and Rampage. That looks like a pretty damn good time right there.
Here’s the list of what’s included, in total:
- Seven Twenty
- Championship Sprint
- Defender II
- Gauntlet II
- Joust 2
- Marble Madness
- Road Blasters
As far as new character packs go, there’s a lot to like there too. Superman, Aquaman, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man all get into the act, and all will of course come with added pieces to build vehicles and (in Stay Puft’s case) a Terror Dog.
- The DC Comics Superman Fun Pack includes a buildable Superman minifigure and Hover Pod. Players can bring the Man of Steel to life in the game and activate his Flying, Dive, Invulnerability, Laser Deflector, Freeze Breath, X-Ray Vision, and Super Strength abilities to solve puzzles and overpower enemies. The Hover Pod will boost gameplay, and can be rebuilt into a Krypton Striker and Super Stealth Pod for upgraded in-game abilities.
- The DC Comics Aquaman Fun Pack features a buildable Aquaman minifigure and Aqua Watercraft. Players can dive into gameplay as the King of the Seven Seas and activate his special Dive, Growth, Atlantis and Hazard Cleaner abilities to solve puzzles and take down rivals. The Aqua Watercraft comes in handy for swift getaways, and can be rebuilt into a Seven Seas Speeder and Trident of Fire for upgraded powers in the game.
- The Ghostbusters Stay Puft Fun Pack comes with the first-ever buildable Stay Puft minifigure and Terror Dog. Players can become everyone’s favourite marshmallow man and activate his Hazard Protection, Big Transform and Super Strength abilities to solve puzzles and battle enemies. The Terror Dog can be called in as back-up and rebuilt as the Terror Dog Destroyer and Soaring Terror Dog for upgraded powers in the game. The pack also allows access to the Ghostbusters Adventure World where gamers can play as any one of the four Ghostbusters characters.
Pretty great week for LEGO fans overall. Everything above is available right now
