LEGO and Star Wars are a match made in geek heaven and a LEGO video game based on The Force Awakens is the kind of tie-in I can get behind.
The latest installment in the Star Wars saga to receive the TT Games treatment is confirmed on the Xbox Store website and bound for every gaming platform. Ever. Well, that's not strictly true.
Watch the awesome announcement trailer.

I'm in from day-one and there's exclusive content for PlayStation comprising the Droid Character Pack and Phantom Limb Level Pack! Incidentally, EA has discounted Star Wars Battlefront on the PlayStation and Xbox stores for a limited time. Took the plunge and picked up the Ultimate Edition for PS4. Feel free to add me on PSN: Marvel_Megatron and mention this blog.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out on the 28th June for Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
