A FamilyGamerTV exclusive official trailer for Scooby Doo in Lego Dimensions.
ABOUT LEGO DIMENSIONS
In a new video featuring Scooby-Doo and Shaggy, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed today gameplay featuring everyone’s favorite Mystery, Inc. characters in LEGO Dimensions, the upcoming entertainment experience that merges physical LEGO brick building with interactive console gameplay. For the first time in a LEGO videogame, the Scooby-Doo gameplay combines the distinctive, blocky LEGO art style with the cel-shaded look of the original, animated cartoons. The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack includes a complete, mission-based Scooby-Doo level that Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf must traverse in their quest to stop Lord Vortech and save the LEGO Multiverse.
For Scooby-Doo fans that want to customize their LEGO Dimensions experience, it was also announced that a Scooby-Doo Team Pack which includes LEGO Scooby-Doo and LEGO Shaggy minifigures, plus a LEGO Mystery Machine and LEGO Scooby Snack, will be available at the launch of the Starter Pack.
Scooby-Doo and Shaggy each have their own abilities and the Mystery Machine and Scooby Snack can be physically built and then rebuilt twice for a total of three different objects that do entirely different things in the digital game for massive variety. Either character can also unlock the Scooby-Doo Adventure World, an open-world environment which provides additional open world gameplay content separate from the game’s main story which allows players to explore iconic Scooby-Doo locations, race, solve puzzles, and more.
All expansion packs provide gamers the opportunity to use every character, vehicle and gadget interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game. Players can bring up to seven toys into the LEGO Dimensions game all at once by placing them on the LEGO Toy Pad to create extreme gameplay cross-overs, such as Scooby-Doo piloting the Batmobile through Springfield!
Launching September 27, 2015, LEGO Dimensions will be available for Xbox One, the all-in one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation4 and PlayStation3 computer entertainment systems and the Wii U system from Nintendo.

We have a look at the different characters included in the Sea Racing Action Pack. This includes:
– Deep Dive Gill Grunt
– Reef Ripper
– Golden Queen Trophy
This unlocks the Golden Queen villain and vehicle combat, along with the Tropic Plunder and The Golden Temple tracks.
We have a look at the Light FX figures, Fin and Rey from Star Wars The Force Awakens.
Light FX figures will include Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader from the Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set, as well as Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, and Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars Twilight of the Republic Play Set and Kanan Jarrus from Star Wars Rebels.
Also unveiled recently was a PlayStation 4 Disney Infinity bundle, with a Star Wars branded Dual Shock 4.
Finally we had a look at some more tracks for the Toy Box Speedway game from Sumo Digital, for Marvel with Hulkbuster and Ultron. No Ant Man or Age of Ultron playset but we did get Marvel Battlegrounds four player playset.
Disney Infinity gets Star Wars Force Awakens playset, four player Marvel Battlegrounds playset, Kingdom Hearts cross over weapons and light-up lightsabers.
Firstly there was an emphasis of new and upcoming Playsets that would further flesh out the experience. Of these the Marvel playset was the most unexpected in terms of its content. Rather than focusing on Ant Man or Age of Ultron, Marvel: Battlegrounds instead offers 4 player co-operative play.
You can use all the the existing Marvel characters in it, along with Hulkbuster and Ultron that are releasing in November 2015. The Marvel: Battlegrounds playset will be released this spring.
The playset for Star Wars Episode 7 The Force Awakens was also talked about directly for the first time. Right at the end of the conference two characters were revealed. Finn and Rey.
Other figures, this time without associated playsets were also unveiled. Spot from Good Dinosaur was shown along with a set of 4 power discs. This was expanded upon from the stage, “Inside of the film there are impressive dinosaurs, so we’ll bring 4 Good Dinosaur power discs as mounts for the game.”
Judy and Nick from Zootopia, the upcoming 2016 movie were also revealed to be included in teh game. Finally, the results of the Toy Box Artists selection was announced to be Peter Pan, although he will not be available until 2016.
Finally, an ultimate unlock item was unveiled for Disney Infinity 3.0. This is awarded for owning and maxing out all the characters in the game. In Disney Infinity 1.0 this was a lightsaber, in Disney Infinity 2.0 it was a Land Speeder.
In Disney Infinity 3.0 this will be the Keyblade weapon from Kingdom Hearts. Alongside this there were also special costume change discs for this year’s Mickey character, exclusive to attendees at D23.

We have a look at some direct footage of Terraria 3DS. On the screen we can see the building, Inventory, Map and Mining screens.
Terraria can appear to be a simple 2D sandbox like Minecraft, however there is much more to the game than that. Thousands of items to collect and craft, a stronger sense of progression and story have seen the game rise rapidly in popularity.
In Cologne’s Gamescom video-game expo last week the game was shown on the Nintendo 3DS and has been well received. It makes good use of the handheld’s two screens, 3D visuals and stylus controls.
We have a close look at the Adventure Worlds in Lego Dimensions. These are the open world parts of the game that can be unlocked with any character.
Additionally, I try out how the Toy Pad works in practice.
