Gotham City remains in the grips of street-level crime, but at some point during Batman's stint as the city's protector, he realized that stopping that crime sometimes meant tackling something bigger. With that in mind, Batman joined the Justice League and kept watch for galactic-level threats, which is where Traveller's Tales is going next for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
"This is really us going big," game director Arthur Parsons told Shacknews. "It's reaching out into the widest areas of the DC Universe to bring more to LEGO Batman. It's named 'LEGO Batman,' but it's more about everything. We've got all the Lanterns in there, the Lantern worlds, we're going away from Earth, we're going away from Gotham, and we're just going to go to places we've always wanted to go. And in a LEGO video game, it's going to allow us to give the better gaming experience that we've ever managed to."
