We don’t see many publishers and studios package movies with their games. It seems like a good idea. Well, Warner Bros. is doing just that with some Lego properties. It’s pairing The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part and The Lego Ninjago Movie with their accompanying games, and The Lego Batman Movie with Lego DC Super-Villains. These Lego Double Packs will be available for purchase in the UK on October 18th for £29.99 each.
These movies will be available on Blu-ray, and the packs will come in PS4 and Xbox One versions. Watch the movie, then play the game. It makes sense. You can buy it all in one go.
We might see other publishers and studios using a similar approach. Imagine a bundle of last year’s Spider-Man PS4 game from Sony-owned Insomniac with Spider-Man: Far From Home. Then again, there’s Sony’s messy Spider-Man deal with Marvel to consider.
This bundle news comes in the same week Warner Bros. announced Lego Star Wars Battles, which is an upcoming mobile multiplayer battle game. It will debut on Android and iOS next year.
Do you think that we will see more of this? Which game and movies would you like to see bundled together?
