TT Games And Warner Building More LEGOs Through 2016
Traveller's Tales - known now as TT Games - has always delivered solid, enjoyable LEGO-based video games. We hope you've had some fun with them in the past, because more will definitely be on the way.
Today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group and LEGO Systems have announced their worldwide agreement with TT Games Publishing to continue with those cute LEGO games for multiple platforms through 2016. TT Games will operate as part of WBHEG and has already produced LEGO games based on popular franchises like "Star Wars," "Batman" and "Indiana Jones." All told, the LEGO series has managed to sell close to 50 million units worldwide, which is why Warner wants to see more of the same over the next six years. Said Kevin Tsujihara, president of WBHEG:
"The LEGO Group is a brilliant and trusted organization with an extremely loyal fan base. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to continue the successful partnership between this legendary company and the talented TT Games, which will enable us to further expand our slate of widely recognized, family-friendly games."
LEGO Digital vice president Henrik Taudorf Lorensen reinforced the desire to cater to imaginative children who wish to partake of a living, breathing LEGO world. He added that LEGO titles "take a distinctive approach to making games creative, social and non-violent, which makes them a valuable part of the broader LEGO experience." Well, we typically like these games, as do most people who give 'em a try. They're not the deepest or most finely honed titles in the world, but they always run well, and they're always great fun for two players. So we have no problem with seeing more LEGO goodness.
