Lego Dimensions Gets Portal, Jurassic Park And More

It seems like a no-brainer: if Minecraft is popular, and it contains a lot of the same elements that have made Lego bricks appealing to kids for decades, why not make a Lego video game with similar properties? They’re finally getting around to it this fall with Lego Dimensions, an interactive brick-building game that lets you buy playsets in both real-world and digital versions, which interact with each other.

Lego, of course, has been the king of licensing popular properties and adapting them as their own figures during these last ten years, and Lego Dimensions continues that trend. They have already announced Dimensions sets based on Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz, and today they expanded that lineup with announcements for playsets based on Portal, Jurassic Park, The Simpsons and Scooby Doo.

These sets have not been officially announced by Lego or WB Games, the makers of Lego Dimensions, but were leaked out via a goof on Walmart’s website, which was caught by Brick Enquirer before it was removed. (You think Will Ferrel’s character from The Lego Movie reads that site? Maybe he made that site.)

You’ll be able to get your brick on in the real and virtual worlds this fall. Lego Dimensions hits retail this September for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Wii U, XBox 360 and XBox One.
