Build ‘n’ Burn
2K Games, in association with The LEGO Company, released a teaser trailer for its first game in its new collaboration partnership — The arcade racer based upon the timeless toy will receive its official reveal this Thursday, March 23.
The fun teaser for the teaser, which you can check out below, introduces us to Awesome News Network reporter Vikki Wheeler, who puts the brakes on the announcement trailer, telling viewers that they’ll have to tune in on Thursday for the full reveal. Interestingly, there’s a really obvious cut right before she says the name of the game, clearly a last-minute decision not to reveal the title just yet — though multiple rumors from a variety of sources suggest that the game may be named “LEGO 2K Drive”.
Worryingly, I think I fancy Vikki Wheeler, but then I’m yet to have my morning coffee.

The new title is the first release in what is expected to be a multi-game partnership between LEGO and 2K Games, with the latter hoping to appeal to both younger and more casual audiences with a series of sports titles based around the block-building pastime. Given that 2K games owns numerous athletic licenses, I’m interested to see if there are plans on the table for LEGO NHL 2K, LEGO NBA 2K, or, best of all, LEGO WWE 2K.
We’ll be sure to bring you all the news from Thursday’s reveal right here on Destructoid.
