In LEGO Batman: The Videogame, TT Games brings the world of DC Comics' Caped Crusader to life in an entirely new way. Players can explore a richly interactive LEGO Gotham City as Batman and Robin, capturing infamous villains - and even take control of the villains themselves.

The LEGO Batman: The Videogame story unfolds with Batman's greatest foes escaping from Arkham Asylum and creating mayhem throughout Gotham City. Tracking criminals, including The Joker and The Penguin, players will utilize Batman's gadgets as well as build and operate fantastic vehicles in one or two player cooperative gameplay.

An Arkham Asylum psychiatrist assigned to treat The Joker; Dr. Harleen Quinzel was instead driven mad by the Clown Prince of Crime. She helped him escape confinement and became Harley Quinn, The Joker's devoted and love struck companion. Nearly as insane as The Joker himself, Harley Quinn is a violent and unpredictable felon who will do anything to prove her love and loyalty to her beloved Joker.

And, because The Joker hates Batman, so does she. Batman respects Harley's physical abilities as a foe and is wary of her twisted personality, knowing that he must always expect the unexpected where she's concerned. In some ways, Batman feels sorry for Harley, who he sees as yet another of The Joker's victims. Yet her above average intelligence, enhanced strength and stamina, as well as superior acrobatic abilities and wicked sense of humour, make her an adversary to take seriously.

In the LEGO Batman videogame, Harley Quinn will be playable and have the ability to walk a tight rope, perform super jumps and bypass security for all levels with guards in security booths. Harley Quinn appears in the Fairgrounds Villain level as well as one additional level yet to be announced… stay tuned Batfans!
