Warner has today released the first, short teaser for LEGO Jurassic World.
There’s not much to see, but it does hint at the humour that’ll appear in the game when it is released this June.
“The combination of the blockbuster Jurassic Park film franchise and the wildly successful LEGO videogame series promises to bring fans around the globe a new and engaging way to experience our dinosaurs in LEGO Jurassic World,” said Stephanie Sperber, President, Universal Partnerships & Licensing. “We can’t wait for the game to hit store shelves in June.”
In LEGO Jurassic World, players will be able to collect precious amber, which contains dinosaur DNA to create and customise species. And, for the first time in a LEGO game, players will be able to play as LEGO dinosaurs, including dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park series and from the upcoming Jurassic World film….Exciting!
Unfortunately there’s been a major issue with this Sonic jumper between the manufacturer and supplier. We have just been informed they were made in the wrong size, labels are wrong, design not correct etc etc…We’ve been left on the front line to deal with customers with very little information to go on. Obviously customers are expecting their Christmas jumper and we’re now having to explain they may not arrive in time, if at all. It’s been a nightmare.
We deal with this supplier (one of the biggest in the UK for games, consoles, accessories and merchandise) on a daily basis and rarely have an issue. We feel terrible and are working to get refunds/website credit to our customers. This is a problem for all UK retailers and not just Video Game Box.
We have been inundated with enquires during this very busy period and we’re trying to resolve asap. Pleas bear with us. All tickets will be replied to and a refund processed shortly.
Sorry again for the upset and inconvenience caused.
