BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) -  Warner Bros.

Widely praised as one of last year's best games for the entire family with sales reaching more than 3.5 million units worldwide, LEGO® Batman 2: DC Super Heroes recently took home the prize for best family game at the 2013 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards.

LEGO® Batman 2: DC Super Heroes offers a humorous and endearing journey into the DC Universe, pitting the most memorable of DC superheroes against its most vile of villains, as part of a story that is fun for all ages.

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes makes use of the Wii U™ GamePad, giving players the ability to use the touchscreen to assemble a team of powerful heroes suitable for any task, or utilize an enhanced interactive map to intuitively reach their next objective. Players can even tackle the whole experience on the GamePad's touchscreen in off-TV mode, or invite a friend to hop in on the TV without having to share screen space.

Batman must defend Gotham with the help of powerful friends like Superman and Robin, to put a stop to the diabolical plans of Lex Luthor, The Joker and their entire team of super villains, including The Penguin and Harley Quinn.
