LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Coming to Wii U

With the release of LEGO City Undercover just weeks away, Warner Bros. today announced that LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes will be coming to the Wii U console.

LEGO Batman 2 builds on the classic LEGO Batman by allowing players to take on the role of other D.C. Comics super heroes, such as Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Superman. It was also the first LEGO game to feature voice acting for the characters, instead of using mime routines and movie references to get the story across.

The Wii U port of LEGO Batman 2 will be using the Wii U GamePad to display an interactive map of Gotham City, and players will also be able to select characters on the GamePad. Players can also play the entire game on the tablet controller alone, or with another player that can have the TV to themselves. That's a nice feature for everyone who knows one of the most frustrating things about LEGO video games is sharing same screen with a partner.

Even if LEGO Batman 2 is nearly one year old, its release on the Wii U is good news for Nintendo, which has had trouble convincing customers to buy its new console with its existing lineup of games.
