Traveller's Tales aims to break free of Lego tradition

When Reggie Fils-Aime strode confidently onto the stage during Nintendo's 2011 E3 conference and declared that he was about to reveal a title exclusive to the newly-announced Wii U, the anticipation was such that you could have heard a pin drop. When he then proceeded to announce Lego City Stories, you could have powered a wind farm with the collective sigh.... read more

It's the only Wii U exclusive that's got my interest perked. I'm really hoping there's another release of this on other consoles because I really don't fancy having to buy a Wii U for it.

I'm in a similar position, it's the only game on the Wii U that interests me at the moment. If it remains exclusive and is received well by the types of people whose opinion I respect, I will probably have to join the Wii U club. That is unless Stealth offers me the opportunity to play it at his.
It's just a ride.

Agreed, this is the only exclusive from the pre-launch announcements that sounded interesting to me. I wouldn't buy a Wii-U for it, but this along with Windwaker HD only needs one other decent exclusive and that slow OS fixed and I'll seriously start looking into getting one.

I'll almost certainly get a Wii-U at some point, it's just a case of when. But as I said, when I do this is near the top of my wants list :)

Rayman, this and Monster Hunter are making March look pretty good on the Wii U. And MGR on the 360 at the end of Feb - not bad!

I'll probably get this with a Wii u when there are another decent 50 exclusives to go with it.

That lego fire-engine picture set my imagination racing off again! :lol:

Brought back memories of creating Lego star-ships with my brothers and then dropping them seven feet to see who had built the best one. :mrgreen:

Absolutely gem of a game for the Wii-U.

Makes me think Lego should do their own version of "Skylanders" - it would be genius!

It might be the closest the Wii U gets to GTA. It does look good, I like Lego games and I know my kids will love it.

God forbid that Nintendo should get a decent third-party exclusive, eh chaps? If it makes you feel any better, we almost certainly won't get GTAV.
