What the Lego Hobbit game looks like in action

What is this, Tolkien hour?

Hardly unexpected, this tale: a Lego game conversion of the first two Hobbit films. But now there's a trailer for it.

We see clips spanning the events of the first Unexpected Journey Hobbit film, but few - if any - clips from The Desolation of Smaug. Let's hope that film doesn't dragon, eh? EH?

And that's a joke that scales.

The trailer sets a familiar humorous tone, but shows little of actual gameplay. Will this game be open-world like the highly acclaimed The Lord of the Rings Lego game was? Let's hope so.

Lego: The Hobbit is due with the daffodils in spring, sprouting on just about every platform out there: 3DS, Mac, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. And Vita. Don't forget Vita.
