There has been a listing on the Amazon Italy website that showed a Warner Bros. Interactive LEGO Star Wars: Episode 7 game. The company have said they will be making a massive announcement on February 2nd.
Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens looks like it’s currently in development and will come out later this year. There was a description on the Xbox Store which said:
”The Force is strong with this one… The No. 1 LEGO® videogame franchise triumphantly returns with a fun-filled, humorous journey based on the blockbuster Star Wars film. Play as Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Han Solo, and the rest of your favourite characters from the movie! In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, players relive the epic action from the blockbuster film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens. The game will also feature exclusive playable content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens also introduces Multi-Builds and Blaster Battles to the LEGO videogame universe. With Multi-Builds, use available LEGO bricks to open up new paths, then break them apart and re-build them again to open up another! And another! During Blaster Battles, use your surroundings as cover to stand against the First Order. ”
It looks like the release could be June 28th, 2016 on the Xbox Store. That seems a bit out of place though as the release for the blu ray is supposed to be in April. A new Star Wars LEGO game would certainly be an exciting new entry to the franchise. The game was listed on Amazon Italy for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U and New Nintendo 3DS. It was also said to “bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.” With LEGO games I’m sure that there will huge a huge range of playable characters. We will update on this as we find out more.
