The DC Universe opens up in Lego Batman 2

22 May 2012

Have we got some new character announcements for you. A combination of EB Games Australia and BrickHeroes has uncovered a series of pre-order DLC character packs for the upcoming Lego Batman 2. It looks like the Lego DC Universe is about to expand.

EB Games is touting a DC villians pre-order pack, featuring Bizzaro, Gorilla Grodd, Black Manta, Captain Cold and Black Adam. BrickHeroes has uncovered a heroes pre-order pack with Nightwing, Katana, Damian Wayne (otherwise known as the latest Robin), Zatanna and Shazam (um…or, properly known as Captain Marvel).

Both packs are pre-order bonuses, so theoretically, you’ll have to buy two copies of the game to play as all of the characters listed above — though it’s highly likely the character packs will be offered up as normal DLC down the track.

These characters join the likes of Superman, Batman, Robin, Lex Luthor, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and the Joker as announced characters when Lego Batman 2 hits consoles, PC, DS and Wii on 27 June.
