Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and DC Entertainment have announced that LEGO DC Super-Villains will release on Nintendo Switch, promising to put you in “a villain-centric adventure.”
The Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to the Justice Syndicate – a new group of heroes from a parallel universe. But soon, DC Super-Villains from the Legion Of Doom spot that these heroes may not be who they claim to be.
You will have the chance to create your own completely customisable Super-Villain character that will command the misfit lawbreakers. They will become the centre of the story and will team up with iconic villains in a hilarious and original story that has been written in collaboration with DC.
As you work your way through the Story Mode, you will unlock new abilities, powers and can choose to continue to customise your character – with the chance for friends and family to join you in two-player local co-op play.
“LEGO DC Super-Villains provides players a fun and humorous way to cause mischief by unleashing their DC Super-Villain’s sinister powers and amusing abilities,” explains TT Games managing director, Tom Stone.
“With an unprecedented amount of customisation options to choose from, players can create and customise their character at the start of the story, unlocking new powers and abilities as they progress through the funniest LEGO game to date.”
There will be a LEGO DC Super-Villains Deluxe Edition that will be made available that includes the main game, Season Pass and early access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack. Those that buy the physical Deluxe Edition at retail will receive an exclusive Lex Luthor Superman LEGO minifigure, with the digital version to have the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack.
LEGO DC Super-Villains will release for Nintendo Switch in North America on October 16th, and in Europe on October 19th.
