Remember Traveller's Tales' LEGO fever? Well aside from the caped crusader's building block debut, game producer Rich Earl confirmed with GamesIndustry.Biz that a 20-minute Lego Batman cartoon is "being done by a separate studio in the states." He said:
"My understanding is that they will use the engine, the Maya files where the characters come to life, but they'll be creating animated... I think it's a 20-minute cartoon. I'm personally quite intrigued to see how it comes out. Lego, every time they've had a new brand out, they've done some CGI stuff as well, but I think this will be quite different."
Earl didn't disclose any further information on the project, since according to him, Traveller's Tales had no involvement in the cartoon's production. We just want to see the classic POW! KABLAM! SPLAT! pop-ups back in action.
Lego Batman, published by Warner Bros. Interactive, will be out this September 23 for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Nintendo Wii, DS and PC platforms. Check out the Bruce Wayne's faithful butler, Alfred, serving some whoop ass after the cut.
