LEGO: Dimensions is the new kid on the block when it comes to the toys-to-life genre. The mash up game which is bringing together a mind boggling array of franchises under one roof is certainly ambitious, and despite being very expensive there is a lot of excitement around it.
It seems that excitement is translating into sales too. In the UK charts as accumulated by GFK Chart-Track, it was revealed that the LEGO branded game sold better than both Skylanders: Super Chargers and Disney Infinity 3.0 in the same time period. As VideoGamer point out, the sales make the game the third biggest selling Toys-to-life game after Skylanders Giants and 2013’s Skylanders Swap Force on these specific charts.
I suspect a lot of this has to do with the title being the new kid on the block, having the LEGO name and of course the huge amount of IPs under its roof. It will be interesting to see where LEGO go from here with the series and how sustainable it will remain going forward.
