Batman LEGO 3 Released TODAY, plus Stephen Sharples Interview!
TT Games Assistant Game Director Stephen Sharples will help us launch the release of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham today! This is the game that stretches the boundaries of its predecessors, making it the largest scale LEGO game ever!
Stephen Sharples is now famous for having been the “innocent victim” of IGN’s Greg Miller, the moderator of the LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham panel at New York Comic Con. The pretense of the panel was that Stephen Sharples had actually been the one who organized the presentation slides and video clips for the panel (he wasn’t). But, Greg Miller, whenever the call was made to provide the next clip, always yelled out, “Dang it, Sharples!” to play up the panel even more. At one point, he had the entire audience screaming, “Dang it, Sharples!” all at the same time. Here is a t-shirt to commemorate the event that was designed by Joe Moore, mild-mannered games designer for TT Games:
Stephen Sharples talked to ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell at New York Comic Con. The conversation includes a nostalgic look at 60’s Batman, whose level will make older gamers very happy and leave kids scratching their heads, while the kids will enjoy the expansive gameplay of more than 150 characters from the DC Universe, with movie-like animated cut scenes and tons of possible combinations.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is available November 11, 2014, on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 4, PS3, PC, Vita, 3DS. Play responsibly.
