LEGO Dimensions to be Included in February Loot Crate Box

LEGO Dimensions Loot Crate

The February theme for Loot Crate has been revealed and it looks like there will be some sort of exclusive LEGO Dimensions item that will be included in the box. If you’re not familiar with Loot Crate, it is a curated subscription box which you can get 4-6 licensed items which are exclusive for the company that usually add up to $45 or more in retail value.

As I mentioned before, February will be a Build theme that “celebrate some of pop culture’s most “put together” franchises with this hands-on theme.” Some of the other items that will be featured include Batman, Power Rangers, LEGO Dimensions, and Tetris. Loot Crate boxes usually include a variety of items including a t-shirt so there’s no telling what the LEGO Dimensions item will be.

Loot Crate boxes start at $21.99/month for a one month subscription plus shipping so if you do decide to get a box just for the LEGO Dimensions item, this would be the best way to go unless you already have a subscription already or you want a longer term. Just be sure to manually cancel your subscription or else it will automatically renew. You have until February 19 to put your order in and it will ship between February 20-28.

Thanks to Tyler for the heads up.

LEGO City: Undercover Nintendo Switch Includes Two Player Co-Op & Secret Nintendo Cameos

LEGO City: Undercover

Nintendo has put out the product page for LEGO City: Undercover for the Switch and there are some new details about the game. As reported before, this remastered version is not exactly a straight port and there is new information about it that supports the claim.

If you look at the game details, it states that it will now have two player co-op which is what fans wanted from the first game. It does not say online co-op so we’ll still have to see about that. That also takes us to the gameplay since, it doesn’t say if the co-op is in the Story Mode or in Free Roam. If it’s in the Story Mode, there might be changes to the game play since you don’t want both players doing the same puzzles.

At the very bottom of the product overview section, you can see that it states there will be secret Nintendo cameos for this version of LEGO City: Undercover. There were Nintendo cameos in the original game but hopefully we’ll see something different. Fans would definitely want to see minifigure characters but we’ll see if that happens or not.

There’s no word yet on the release date of LEGO City: Undercover although Amazon has it listed as April 30 but that could just be a placeholder. LEGO City: Undercover will also be released on PlayStation 4, XBox One, and on Steam.

GAME DETAILS
Join the Chase!
