'Lego Jurassic World' Trailer Reveals the Drawbacks of Being a Toy T. Rex
Sure, the brand-new dinosaur glimpsed in trailers for Jurassic World might be terrifying, but can he detach his own jaw in moments of emergency? That’s where the first teaser for Lego Jurassic World comes in …
The upcoming video game from Warner Bros. and TT Games may take its name from Colin Trevorrow’s forthcoming revival of the action franchise, but the game itself will use material from all three earlier movies in addition to the Chris Pratt vehicle. Players will be able to collect dinosaur DNA that allows them to create customizable dinos, with the dinos themselves being available as playable characters.
“As ardent fans of Universal’s Jurassic Park films, we are thrilled with the opportunity to finally bring Lego dinosaurs to life for the first time in a video game in Lego Jurassic World,” TT Games managing director Tom Stone said in a statement. “Imagine playing as the ominous Lego T. Rex, roaming the grounds of Isla Nublar, smashing Lego bricks and battling with other dinosaurs — this game is bound to bring out the kid in all of us.”
The Lego Jurassic World video game will be released in June for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS platforms, following the May release of Lego Jurassic World building sets. Jurassic World the movie will be released June 12.
