LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was present at Gamescom: Opening Night Live 2021 as previously promised with a new release window. Not only was a new trailer shown, but we received confirmation that the title will now ship in Spring 2022.

Here’s the video in full:

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will appear at Gamescom: Opening Night Live with a world premiere, host Geoff Keighley has announced.

Gamescom: Opening Night Live will take place on August 25. The show starts at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM in the UK / 8 PM in Europe.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was last talked about this past April when the game was delayed to an unspecified date. The game has been pushed back multiple times, and was originally planned for 2020. 


LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is making the jump to Switch, Warner Bros. Interactive and TT Games revealed today. A release is set for October 5.

Two pieces of DLC will be included: Super Pack and Asgard Pack. Here’s an overview of both:

LEGO City Undercover may feature an open world, but it’s not overly comparable to Grand Theft Auto. It turns out that this was intentional.

During a recent episode of the Bits N’ Bricks podcast, lead animator Matt Palmer mentioned, “One thing we were keen to try and avoid was it becoming a Grand Theft Auto game.” Rather than being violent, the team “constantly stepped back from things and just made sure that we were looking at the fun and the funny element of what we could do.” That lead to elements like the grapple gun.

Palmer explained:

LEGO City Undercover was a pretty big deal when it first appeared on Wii U close to a decade ago. It was planned as one of the system’s first major games, and was even published by Nintendo.

In a recent episode of the Bits N’ Bricks podcast, lead animator Matt Palmer and LEGO Group producer Darryl Kelley spoke in-depth about LEGO City Undercover’s creation. We also get to hear about Nintendo’s role. According to Kelley, the company was “very, very involved” – including development itself.

Below are Plamer and Kelley’s full words:

Mortal Kombat 11 has sold over 12 million copies worldwide, Warner Bros. Games and NetherRealm Studios revealed today. The series as a whole has also surpassed 73 million units.

Speaking on today’s news, NetherRealm Studios creative director and series co-creator Ed Boon said:

NetherRealm is moving on from Mortal Kombat 11, the studio has confirmed. No additional DLC is in the cards for the Switch fighter.

The official Mortal Kombat Twitter account just posted the following:

When LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was first announced, it was targeted for a 2020 launch. Warner Bros. and TT Games would later push things back to Spring 2021.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is now seeing a second delay, with TT confirming that the title won’t be making it out this spring. A new release window was not provided.

A statement from TT reads:

A few new LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga tidbits have surfaced from this month’s issue of OPM. The magazine details the amount of playable characters, areas, and more.

Previously, we heard that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga would include close to 500 unique characters. It seems that this amount has increased over the past year.

Here’s the full roundup of tidbits:

If you had any interest in picking up the digital versions of LEGO City Undercover for Wii U or LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins for 3DS, you’re out of luck. Nintendo quietly pulled both titles from their digital storefronts recently. A reason for their removal was not provided.

LEGO City Undercover for Switch, which is largely the same as the Wii U version, can be bought digitally on that system without any issues. However, The Chase Begins was a bit of a different experience, and there’s no way to access the game from the 3DS eShop any longer (unless you bought it previously). However, it’s true that physical copies are still out there in the wild.

Nintendo published LEGO City Undercover on Wii U and 3DS originally, so it’s possible that some sort of license expired. Warner Bros. directly handled the Switch version.
