Whether you already own Lego Dimensions or plan to buy it later this month with the new PS4 exclusive Supergirl figure, you’re either way going to get your Batman fix with the starter packs inclusion of the Batman minifig and Batmobile vehicle. That’s not stopping developer TT Games from adding more Batman content as part of the forthcoming year two sets for the toys-to-life game however, in the form of a new Story Pack and a Target timed-exclusive Fun Pack, both based on next year’s The Lego Batman Movie.
Story Packs are a new addition to Lego Dimensions and come at a higher price point than the Level Packs. This is because they tell a complete, multi-level story of the brand that they’re based on as opposed to the abridged, single-level format of the Level Packs, and also come with a complete new build for the portal. The Lego Batman Movie Story Pack due out February 10th of next year, which actually doesn’t come with a new Batman, will include Robin, Batgirl, a Batwing vehicle and a Batcomptuer build for the base.
If you want to get a new Batman minifig to go along with the new Story Pack, you can get the Excalibur Batman Fun Pack, featuring an armored Batman complete with a sword and a Bionic Steed as the vehicle piece. Those who reside in Canada, like myself, will not be able to initially walk into a store and buy this new Batman though, as it is a timed exclusive to Target stores. How long this exclusivity lasts remains to be seen, but I’ll report on it as soon as more information becomes available.
From Warner Bros.:
Coinciding with the release of the upcoming film on which it’s based, The LEGOBatman Movie Story Pack, will provide a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters in six puzzle-packed levels and new LEGO Gateway bricks that allow players to build the Bat-Computer atop the LEGO Toy Pad. The pack comes with buildable Batgirl and Robin minifigures and the 3-in-1 buildable Batwing which can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder and Bat-Tank. Gamers can play the complete movie and band together with Batgirl and Robin to fight off the Joker and his team of villains. Batgirl’s batarang, glide and stealth abilities can reach areas with high security access and Robin’s agility and dive skills provide sneak access. Players can also transform Robin into the Nightwing, utilize his vine cut, and deflect moves for more crime-fighting adventures.
