LEGO The Lord of the Rings announced

It's that magical time of the year, when publishers reveal their poorly kept secrets and we politely gasp in surprise. This morning was Warner Bros.' turn to shock and amaze, announcing LEGO The Lord of the Rings for every platform under the sun. Yes, Frodo and the gang are off to Mount Doom, in LEGO form.

You'll get to bash monsters, solve puzzles, jump onto platforms, and generally adventure with fellowship members including Frodo, Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Sam, Merry, and Pippin. All the gang!

The game's based upon the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, going from The Fellowship of the Ring, through The Two Towers, and capping off with The Return of the King.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings is slated for a fall 2012 launch on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, DS, 3DS and Vita. TT Games is once again developing.
