LEGO Batman 2 Wii U confirmed for release this spring

DC super heroes descend on Wii U

DC's finest super heroes will now be starring in two Wii U games this year. We already know about Injustice: Gods Among Us but now Warner have confirmed that LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is coming to Wii U, with a release date set for spring 2013.

LEGO Batman 2 will become the second LEGO game of 2013 when it is released for Wii U after LEGO City Stories. Of course the game has already been released for Wii and 3DS and has sold 3.4 million copies on all formats but this new version will shake things up by making use of the Wii U GamePad.

You can use the interactive map on the GamePad to navigate through Gotham City and you can also touch the screen to assemble a powerful team of heroes.

You can also play only on the GamePad or invite a friend to join you in co-op mode with one fighting crime on the TV and the other on the Wii U controller.

You see, the Joker and his team of super villains including Lex Luthor, The Penguin and Harley Quinn are up to no good and Batman needs help from his friends, including Superman and Robin, to defend Gotham City.

Will it be worth buying? Read our LEGO Batman 2 Wii review to see what we thought of the original.
