 Warner Bros. Interactive and TT Games announced earlier this week that Lego Batman: The Videogame, the latest in the Lego game series, is now available for both Wii and DS.    


The blocky offering is based in Gotham City, and as with all Lego games, players are able to play as either good or evil characters. The game centers on a common Batman story that involves the most infamous of villains breaking free of the Arkham Asylum and wreaking havoc on Gotham City, while the Dynamic Duo pursues them.    


Players will be able to experience a set of fifteen hero levels and a set of fifteen villain levels. Also a staple of the Lego series, players will be able to experience either set of levels solo or co-op with a friend.    


Lego Batman: The Videogame is available now across America for Wii and DS at the suggested retail price of $49.99 and $29.99, respectively.    


WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT AND TT GAMES LAUNCH   LEGO® Batman™: the VIDEOGAME    


Join the CAPED CRUSADER and other legendary heroes as they work to keep infamous villains, such as The Joker, CATWOMAN and THE PENGUIN, from running amok through GOTHAM CITY    


Burbank, Calif.. – September 23, 2008 – LEGO Batman: The Videogame, published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by TT Games, ships to retail stores nationwide today on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®2, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Wii™, Nintendo DS™ and Windows PC.    


Gotham City’s most notorious criminals have broken out of ARKHAM ASYLUM and it’s up to the DYNAMIC DUO to stop them. Based on the iconic DC Comics' heroes BATMAN and ROBIN, as well as many other memorable characters from the DC Comics Universe, LEGO Batman: The Videogame blends the wildly popular Batman universe with the versatility of LEGO building and the humor of the LEGO minifigure. Unlike any LEGO game done in the past, players can now explore their wicked side and play the game as the villains, not just the heroes.    


From the rooftops to the sewers, players will experience Gotham City like never before as they choose to play from the perspective of either the villains, entering the game from Arkahm Asylum, or the heroes, swinging into action from The BATCAVE. LEGO Batman: The Videogame features fifteen hero levels and fifteen villain levels – for a total of thirty unique action-packed levels. Play as comic heroes Batman, Robin, ALFRED PENNYWORTH and BATGIRL, or wreak havoc as The Joker, HARLEY QUINN, MR. FREEZE, TWO-FACE and many more!    


LEGO Batman: The Videogame features a completely original storyline, encompassing the lighthearted charm of LEGO and the multifaceted lore of Gotham City. LEGO Batman: The Videogame features co-op multiplayer allowing for easy pick-up-and-play. Players can also get behind the wheel of legendary vehicles, such as the BATMOBILE and BATWING. Enhance the abilities of the Dynamic Duo by unlocking Batman and Robin’s suits to help fight Gotham’s villains, or use The Joker’s electric buzzer to give our heroes a shock.    


LEGO Batman: The Videogame is a fast-paced action adventure title for fans of all ages. It is rated “E10+” and is available on the Xbox 360 Entertainment System, PLAYSTATION 3 system and Wii for $49.99. It is also available for the PlayStation 2, PSP system, Nintendo DS and PC, for $29.99.

So the other day I was at McDonald's and noticed that the happy meal toys were based on this.

So that would mean we have...

a toy
based on a videogame
based on a different toy
based on a comic book

Possibly the most convoluted licencing tie-in to ever exist.

I think perhaps something related to Pirates of the Caribbean can claim that crown, it did all originate with a theme-park ride, after all...perhaps a toy based on a game based on a movie based on a ride?

I also remember something like a game based on a movie based on a game happening, or possibly the other way around.  Not that this is really relevant.

If Monkey Island had a movie it would be more convoluted.
