Warner Bros. confirms LEGO The Hobbit

Posted on 4 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Wii U | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Warner Bros. has officially announced LEGO The Hobbit following a leak last week.

The new title, developed by TT Games, is based on the first two films of The Hobbit Trilogy – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Players will venture on quests throughout Middle-earth, joining Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, and Thorin Oakenshield and Company in their adventures toward the Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor.

Playable characters include Bilbo, Gandalf, and all of the Dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori. Each comes with his own special ability, such as Bombur’s trampoline that enables his companions to “belly-bounce” out of danger.

Various locations are included in LEGO The Hobbit, such as Bag End, Bilbo’s Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton, High Pass over The Misty Mountains, Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell.

Players will encounter various puzzles, partake in Treasure Quests, and battle with Orcs, Trolls and fouler things. The game will also allow users to mine for gems, discover loot from enemies, and craft powerful magical items or build immense new LEGO structures.

LEGO The Hobbit will be out next year for Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

I see some familiar faces.

Nintendo has published an announcement covering various deals/bundles for the holiday shopping season. The company has officially confirmed the Luigi’s Mansion 3DS bundle and has announced a new Nintendo Land package featuring the game and a Luigi-themed Wii Remote Plus.

For the full announcement, head past the break.

Amazon Japan has posted several new screenshots of Kirby Triple Deluxe. We have a better look at the game’s boxart, too. You can find the full set above.

Shin’en casually announced FAST Racing Neo a few weeks ago. Soon after, the game dropped off the radar.

Neo’s announcement came without any sort of information or media. This begs the question: when will we actually see something pertaining to the game?

Unfortunately, Shin’en intends to keep us waiting a bit longer. The studio will be sharing content starting next year.

Shin’en’s Manfred Linzner told Pretendo:

In 2014. We currently optimize the local multiplayer part and it seems as we can go far beyond what we have done previously.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is out now in North America and Europe. To celebrate, series producer Eiji Aonuma took to Miiverse and shared a message with fans.

Aonuma started out by officially confirming that A Link Between Worlds’ Miiverse community will go live once the 3DS system update launches next month. He also spoke about one of the title’s mini-games and Hint Ghosts.

For Aonuma’s full message, read on below.

Rare was originally developing Dinosaur Planet for the N64. However, the project was cancelled, and ultimately saw a complete transformation. The final game ended up as Star Fox Adventures for the GameCube.

Former Rare staffer Phil Tossell spoke about what the studio initially had in store for Dinosaur Planet while speaking with Retro Gamer this month. Tossell revealed that the project “was supposed to be a hybrid of Diddy Kong Racing and an adventure game.”

“Actually, it was supposed to be a hybrid of Diddy Kong Racing and an adventure game. Every level would have some kind of track in it and a race as part of the story. It took a while to settle down…”

One reason why Dinosaur Planet turned into a Star Fox title was because of Shigeru Miyamoto’s feeling that some of the characters between the two were similar in appearance. To say the least, Rare welcomed the opportunity to work on one of Nintendo’s legendary franchises.

“It seemed like a no-brainer. They’re offering this great character from this great franchise! I was attached to Dinosaur Planet but I love the original Star Fox. Our only concerns were how we could fit it into this game we have.”

Thanks to joclo for the tip.

A new Pokemon Center has opened in Funabashi, Chiba Prefecture’s Mitsui Lalaport Shopping Park. “Pokémon Center Tokyo Bay” is the second largest Pokemon store, only beaten in size by the one in Osaka. Consumers can pick up a limited edition shopping bag for the venue’s grand opening.
