Lego Batman 2 coming to Wii U

Wii U may already have a port of a year-old Batman game, so why not another? Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is coming to the system this spring, putting one more brick in the Lego wall of kid-friendly Wii U offerings.

The GamePad will be used as an interactive map and character selection screen, cutting down on some of the in-game UI. It will also feature an off-screen function, or can be used as a second screen for another player to join in.

Lego Batman 2 received a generally positive reception on consoles when it released last summer. Unlike the previous Lego Batman game, it wrangled together various heroes and villains from the DC universe. Lego Marvel Super Heroes is set to do the same for the other top comic publisher as well.
