LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the best-selling LEGO game ever
After hearing about the sales success of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, it certainly makes sense that Warner Bros. and TT Games are making a sequel. David Haddad, the president of WBIE, told GamesBeat that it’s the “best-selling LEGO game ever.”
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes hit Wii U, 3DS, and DS in 2013. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 launches this holiday.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is happening, with Warner Bros. releasing a teaser trailer today. That’ll be followed up with a proper trailer next week.
Technically, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 has not been announced for a Nintendo platform just yet. We’d be shocked if this weren’t on Switch at the very least though.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has sold over one million copies in the UK
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has sold over one million units in the UK, Warner Bros. Interactive announced. The game saw the second-largest LEGO launch thus far, falling only behind LEGO Indiana Jones. 84,400 units were sold upon release.
In a statement passed along to MCV, sales and marketing director Spencer Crossley said:
“The game’s appeal is a unique blend of clever humour and high quality gameplay from TT Games, along with the universal charm of LEGO and the hugely popular Marvel Universe.”
A new LEGO game based on Avengers, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers, is due out later this month.
UK: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the biggest LEGO video game campaign for Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. is gearing up for its biggest LEGO video game campaign ever in the UK with the upcoming release of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes landed in North America late last month, but it won’t be available in Europe until next week. As launch approaches, Warner Bros. will be going after older gamers through social media and press advertising. Also worth mentioning, LEGO Marvel has already been featured ahead of the TV show Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Kids will be a core focus for Warner Bros. as well. The game will receive coverage in the kids press, such as front covers and competitions.
Warner Interactive’s UK sales and marketing director Spencer Crossley told MCV:
“LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is our biggest LEGO video game launch to date with continuous above-the-line and experiential support throughout the campaign.
“This game not only appeals to our traditional kids audience, but also reaches a broader and older generation of Marvel superfans. We’ve seen a considerable broadening in the demographic of the market for LEGO video games since the huge success of LEGO Batman 2 and LEGO The Lord of the Rings and with the wider and deeper appeal of the LEGO Marvel licence, we’re looking forward to appealing to a much bigger market.”
