A new LEGO game is coming later this year, based on Peter Jackson’s first two Hobbit movies. Warner Bros. has just released a new tongue-in-cheek trailer pegging the game as buddy-flick in the same vein as Ocean’s Thirteen, thanks to the fact that it’s all about working together.

It does a great job of showing the camaraderie between Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves (affectionately nicknamed Thorin’s Thirteen), as well as the teamwork that’s required to re-live the events of the movies in LEGO style.

And as is normal for LEGO games, it’s pretty funny as well. Kids (and probably more than a few adults) are going to love it.

LEGO The Hobbit: The Videogame is coming out in April for all major platforms, including the Wii U and 3DS.

 

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
