WMG / LEGO Adaptation Game

Go To

These games take place in the same world as Minecraft
Along with LEGO Battles. Think about it. Both games have similarly blocky characters and are set similar worlds. Character customization is oddly similar (Both arms and both legs must be mirrors of each other; bodies divided into hat, head, arms, body, legs). The Enemies in Lego Star Wars spawn in small, dark areas before coming out. The level creators are superflat creative worlds, and the story levels are adventure maps. The updated levels in Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga are the result of updates to the adventure maps, and the Lego Indiana Jones levels (As well as the "Geonosis Arena" level in LSWIII) are the result of complete remakes. Objects that look different but function the same in each game? Each "theme" has it's own texture pack. Zombies in LSWIII and the zombie mannequins from Indiana Jones 2 function similarly to zombies in Minecraft, with the exception of not burning in sunlight. The near-useless bystanders you can find are similar in (non-)function to the villagers.Lego Battles (Which, for simplicity, and the fact that it shares a developer and gameplay elements, we'll consider a part of this series) gives even more examples. The villagers are friendly towards the pirates (Villagers in Minecraft and will not attack the player, even if you start killing them.), and their Tiki Golem is strangely evocative of the recently-added Iron Golem. The evil wizard uses skeleton archers that resemble the ones in Mineraft, only with snazzy helmets. The Wizard also has a dragon that vaguely resembles the Enderdragon.This, of course, is helped by the fact that Lego is now making Minecraft sets.

There will be a Lego Superman
In order to tie it in with/cash in on Snyder and Nolan's Man of Steel movie, and because Batman had his Lego game. Similarly, there will also be a sequel with several DCU heroes available.
There will be a LEGO Massive Multiplayer Crossover game containing all of the LEGO Themes licensed from Disney
Since Disney and WB are in talks for bringing their franchises to LEGO Dimensions (but sadly, it became cancelled until they listened to the fans) and so, how about a LEGO Disney crossover game that we will play as all of the Disney Princesses, many of the Marvel Super Heroes, the entire Star Wars gang, the Pirates of the Carribbean, Indy and his Friends, Mickey and his Friends and many of their beloved characters?
  • Maybe, we can have the Guest Fighter stuff who had previously worked with the Walt Disney Company, such as Sonic and Post-SGW Sally from Sonic the Hedgehog, the entire Street Fighter roster and etc.
  • Oh! And maybe we can have a team-up between Captain Jake and Star Butterfly in regular LEGO Minifigure form with Miles Morales and Scarlet Witch?

  • And also, how about a level where Princess Sofia summons all of the Disney Princesses at the same time thanks to Lord Vortech in which he wields the Infinity Gauntlet in which he had teamed up with Lord Dominator.
  • And maybe, we can have playable characters from Disney's TV shows as well like Phineas Flynn, Ferb Fletcher, Dipper and Mabel Pines, Wander, Kim and Ron, the entire Callisto family, Milo Murphy and etc?
  • Also, the final level would be the Overly Long Gag combined with the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny in which everyone from the Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm universes face off the final boss of the game, an alamagation of Darth Vader's helmet with Kang's head, Chernabog's Body with Ultron's Arms, Darth Maul's legs and a red lightsaber named Darth Chernakang.
We're going to get a Lego Superheroes game, with both Marvel & DC characters
Lego's got both the licenses to Marvel and DC, and be honest, wouldn't be playing as a whole host of heroes like Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain America, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and many more be ten kinds of awesome?
  • I was just thinking this. However, as much as I love the Batman series and its characters, I hope they use a more evenly spread set of characters than the second LEGO Batman game if they do manage to make this.
  • Lego Amalgamverse?
  • How about the JLA VS Avengers storyline?
There'll be a LEGO game based on Steven Universe
Since the Crystal Gems are getting more popular, how about a LEGO game based on it?
  • Mac Farlane Toys may had the license to make building block sets but the fans want it to happen.
There'll be a LEGO game based on Adventure Time
  • Semi-confirmed, it is in LEGO Dimensions.
There will be a LEGO Anime/Manga game
Because if LEGO can put Agent Smith in the LEGO Batman Movie and they can license Speed Racer, they could possibly do a Video game based on an anime and manga property, as the thing is, other companies own the licenses in English.List of Possibilities:
  • LEGO Dragon Ball: The Saiyan Collection (it could work, if LEGO can adapt it right.)
  • LEGO Sailor Moon: The Moonlight Anthology (similar to LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga where if they can adapt both trilogies, why not both animes adaptions?)
  • LEGO Kinnikuman (this could be their Alternate Company Equivalent to the 2K WWE games, but much funnier.)
  • Advertisement:
  • LEGO Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure (it would be very tough for LEGO to do that, as it featured numerous elements named by dozens of copyrighted elements.)
  • LEGO Naruto X Boruto: Shinobi Generations (similar to LEGO Sailor Moon: The Moonlight Anthology.)
  • LEGO One Piece (like Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure but because of it's length, it will take forever for LEGO to adapt the entirety into a single game.)
There will be a Lego game of Avatar: The Last Airbender
There was a Lego set or two based on the series when it first came out, it would be pretty cool to have control over bending powers (plus the previous Avatar games haven't been overly reputable). They could even make strange and hilarious additions such as;

There will be a LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game.
Because they'd actually produce a good beat em' up with some additional features, and because of the LEGO toys. It would also introduce bigger characters, like Mutagen Man or Traag.

These games take place in the same world as The LEGO Movie.
Adding to this, maybe the movie (Or it's game adaptation) take place in between Lego Pirates and Lego Batman 2. The reason Lego Batman 2 is the first Traveller's Tales game the characters speak in? Finn was being quiet when he was playing with his dad's toys. There's also an explanation for why, in the first few games, you only had a few characters to play as per level, whereas in the later games, you can hold down the tag button to choose from the entire roster. In the first games, Finn was picking a handful of minifigs and going back to what he was playing with to avoid making noise. In later games, he was just swapping out characters as he chose. As the series goes on, Finn was getting more cocky and careless, leading to the games getting bigger and bolder as time went on. Story Mode is Finn recreating his favorite movies/TV shows/whatever. Free Play is just that, Finn playing with toys, doing whatever he wants. Co-op is whenever Finn brings a friend (Or later, his dad) downstairs to play with him. LEGO Rock Band is what happens when Finn listens to music while playing with the sets (Notice how many different LEGO themes seem to mix together in that game?) LEGO Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit is what happens when Finn watches the movies as he plays with the toys. We can also infer that Finn watches a lot of Marvel shows, but not a lot of DC ones, based on the voice cast in LEGO Batman 2 as compared to LEGO Marvel. The movie unintentionally provides so much insight to the game series it's insane. The player may have a huge roster of characters to pull from: But they're only ever playing as one person: Finn.

It could work, MK has Loads And Loads Of Kharacters it would naturally be Bowdlerised but you can still dekapitate, tear off arms, upperkuts etc.. You could retell the original timeline in LEGO form. This troper has never played Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, but wasn't one of its problems that there were too many Kharaters but little polish and discspace because of it? This was never a problem with the adaptation games since everyone usually still has their Kharacterization intact. Of course it would've still the regular LEGO gameplay style, I don't think the LEGO body type would translate well into a Mortal Kombat fighting style.

In the next game the custom characters will be able to talk
In DC Supervillains they made a big deal of the fact that a custom character would, for the first time, be a character in the story, and they delivered. However the character was The Voiceless and therefore never spoke, a fact that was referenced constantly throughout the story. If they can program the cut scenes to have the character match the 100s of combinations they have in the game, then they could have the voice actors voice lines for a custom character and assign it based on the voice the player chooses. To me at least it seems like the only logical step to take the Custom Characters even further.
  • Unlikely since it would be Difficult, but Awesome, as they would need to have almost their entire voice cast record the same script for the one character. But it's still sounds cool.

In a future game we will be able to make custom Big Figures
In Marvel Superheroes 1 we technically could make custom big figs, but without powers, and just different colored versions of the existing big figs. It'd make sense in a future game to allow us to customize big figs in the same way minifigs customization has been upgraded. As a bonus we should therefore be allowed to use the transform ability (seen in DC Super villains) to transform into another figure, merging two custom characters.

LEGO Superhero crossover game
They’ve teased a DC/Marvel crossover since the first Marvel game and since the Anti-Monitor is both the most powerful supervillain of all time and showed up at the end of DC Super-Villains He would be the perfect Big Bad for the game. And since the Anti-Monitor is a DC property they can add Thanos to serve as a more immediate threat. And why stop with just the mainstream Marvel and DC? They can add Superheroes from Watchmen and The Incredibles to make the multiverse a little bigger.

The next game to use custom characters as part of the story will be a Spider-Man/Spider-Verse game.
Seems like the logical choice in light of the Spidersona Phenomenon following Into The Spider-Verse.
