LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is being billed as the first LEGO game to feature talking characters, even though it totally isn't. While the series may have gotten away from using voice acting in recent years, seeming to prefer grunts and other non verbal means of communication, the spoken word has its genesis in the toymaker's first piece of software.
Released back in 1997, LEGO Island may not be much to look at or listen to any longer, but it holds the distinction that Warner Bros and Traveller's Tales are looking to usurp. But I suppose that really doesn't matter, just a marketing complaint from a crotchety gamer with fond memories of delivering plasticy pizzas and hunting down that notorious Brickster.
Anyway, back to the game that people actually care about. Batman won't just have Robin at his side in this adventure, as some of the other Super Friends will be at The Caped Crusader's side to rescue Gotham from the clutches of Lex Luthor and The Joker when the adventure begins on June 19 for the PlayStations, Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS and PC.
