Press Release: Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Announced
Batman is back to save Gotham City and the action will only build from here! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group are teaming up once again to announce that LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes will be available beginning Summer 2012 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the Wii™ system, and Windows PC, as well as the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, and PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system.
In LEGO Batman™ 2: DC Super Heroes, the Dynamic Duo of Batman and Robin join other famous super heroes from the DC Universe including Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern to save Gotham City from destruction at the hands of the notorious villains Lex Luthor and the Joker. Batman fans of all ages will enjoy a new and original story filled with classic LEGO videogame action and humor as players fight to put the villains back behind bars.
Arkham City’s Robin will not be a simple skin. Instead, as with Catwoman, he will be a fully fleshed-out character with his own move set. Stated Dax Ginn to IGN, “We wanted to make sure every aspect of Robin felt unique and felt meaningful”, explained Ginn. “He has a weapon, his bow-staff that he can deploy into a shield which immediately gives a different feel, and that’s something that Batman and Catwoman just don’t have.” He will also have ”a navigation system that’s derived from Batman’s gliding system.”
He will still be restricted to challenge maps, which makes the navigation system a touch more interesting.
As far as other DLC characters later, like Joker or Harley? Well…he was a little more coy on that. ”There’s certainly super-cool stuff around that… But I’m going to have to duck that [question] for the time being. It’s awesome, totally awesome and you’ll know what I mean when you see it.”
At mimoco.com, they have these absolutely AMAZING 2gb USB Flash drives and I WANT ALL OF THEM! Apparently, they also include a bunch of graphics and music pertaining to each. The 2gb version is $22.95, but they have 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 available, too. Wanna know the others? Here are all the other DC ones I saw (Hello Kitty, Star Wars and others also available).

Again, these are all available on mimoco.com.
