LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is an action game and the sequel to LEGO Batman: The Videogame. Just like the first game it draws elements from the Batman universe but built entirely in LEGO-style bricks. It starts when a "Man of the Year" award ceremony in Gotham City is interrupted by the Joker and a gang of bandits. Bruce Wayne is a candidate for the award and changes into Batman to pursue them, teaming up with members of the Justice League.
The game has an open-world concept with gameplay similar to its predecessor. It can be played as a classic Batman character as well as other various DC Comics superheroes, including Superman, Green Lantern, Robin, Batgirl, The Flash and Wonder Woman. The suits of Batman and Robin have been changed, adding completely new suits such as Batman's Power Suit, which can fire explosive pelts and Robin's Acrobat Suit, which can convert Robin into a zorb ball and allows him to throw the acrobat pole into sockets, to twirl to higher positions. As well as an original story that features voice acting for the first time, the game has a total of 15 levels and a completely explorable open-world Gotham City. The game can be played cooperatively through a split-screen mode.
