'Lego' Games Still Building
Posted By: John Manalang - Friday, August 08, 2008 10:31 AM

Warner Bros. Interactive is willing to build more Legos - cash generating Lego-themed video games to be specific. Starting with Lego Star Wars game series, to Lego Indiana Jones and the upcoming Lego Batman game, developer Traveller's Tales president Jon Burton said that the Lego blocks won't stop with the caped crusader.

"We’ve gotten started doing some LEGO games on the Warner IP," said Burton. He said that with the initial release of the Lego Star Wars video games selling over 15 million copies, the franchise "breathes new life" into the movies. And Burton said,  "[Lego video games] introduces kids into the property, and we make money!" Woo!

Lego Batman will be out this September for the Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, Nintendo Wii, DS, PSP and PC platforms. So if you're a fan of the game series, what Lego translation would you like to see? Lego Superman? Lego Green Lantern? Lego My Eggo? No, seriously....let go...

@cmdluke
That will most likely be the next one. I can't think of another franchise that would make more money.

I say Lego Thundercats.
