LEGO Dimensions’ Ridiculous Story Detailed in New Trailer

While there are bigger questions about how LEGO Dimensions will actually succeed as as toys-to-life product, there have certainly been consumers around the world wondering how a game with characters from seemingly endless properties will function from a narrative perspective. Fear not, humble gamers, as WB Games has released a trailer showcasing some of the insane action you can expect when LEGO Dimensions launches later this year.

The premise is both simple and complicated. A bizarre mastermind, Lord Vortech, summons characters from every world imaginable into his in order to find the building bricks of LEGO civilization, which sets the stage for all of the zany antics you’d expect from a game starring Batman, Gandalf and Scooby Doo.

LEGO Dimensions is set to release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on September 27.
