To say we were worried about this game coming to the DS would be an understatement. You see, we've had two LEGO
titles on the DS, with one being the worst game
on the system (okay, maybe Peter Jackson's King Kong
is worse) and the other being a title that got several good marks
. So it was a 50/50 chance in our eyes on whether this would be a flop or not.
Thankfully, the same development team that handled LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
is also undertaking the task of developing LEGO Batman
, as well. And it's being built specifically with the DS in mind, so the handheld game will be unique. "It's not a port, it's completely done separately," explains producer Loz Doyle to MTV's Multiplayer blog. "It's done at Traveller's Tales by the same team that did the 'Saga
' DS version, and they're a really, really good team. It's kind of the same but different, and there's a lot of touch screen in there."
So, yes. It is now official. DS Fanboy is excited for this game.
