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.”
