If, by some chance, you have never seen or played a LEGO video game before, let me fill you in. LEGO games are literally everywhere and based on all of the popular franchises. They span licenses that include pretty much every popular and geek property you can think of. Naturally, the latest LEGO Movie sequel is also getting a video game. Say hello to the The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game. Coming in 2019.

The big screen sequel, officially dubbed The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, is slowly inching toward its 8 February 2019 release. Now it seems that its video game counterpart is as well. The game is set to release on all platforms on 26 February 2019, with a Nintendo Switch release expected on 26 March 2019.

According to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game will revolve around the plot of the second film. The official blurb reads that “the alien monster invaders have left Bricksburg in ruins” and that it is now up to “Emmer and a host of heroic characters to go beyond their world and save their friends from the strange inhabitants of the Systar System”. Players will “journey into outer space, discover new worlds, and test [their] Master Building skills”.

In addition to Emmet, players can also expect to see Lucy and LEGO Batman make a return from the first game. Joining them, are General Mayhem and Rex Dangervest. Warner Bros. states that more than “100 characters pulled from both LEGO movies” will be in this game. While players will get to see “new worlds”, they can also be rest assured that they will revisit worlds from the original film as well.

Just like the previous title, players will be able to discover new and secret locations in The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game once special LEGO items are built. A key task for players in this game is to rebuild roads and paths, to change landscapes, and to build structures. Doing this will unlock rewards and special secret missions.
