While Warner Bros. Games is diligently finishing up development on the original Wii U effort Lego City Undercover, the company is also prepping a little adventure on the side to keep players building on the new console.

Today, the publisher announced that it is bringing Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes to the system.  The sequel, which was a big hit last summer when it released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and other consoles, brings back the Caped Crusader as he fights a whole new criminal element in Gotham City, while teaming up with the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman and other heroes.

The game features an expansive new 3D universe to fight through, the biggest the Lego series has seen to date (outside of Undercover, obviously).  It also supports both single player and co-op antics, so you can team up with a friend to do some damage against Gotham's greatest villains – and Lex Luthor as well.  Fans can also indulge in full voice acting for the game, featuring strong vocal support for heroes and villains across the board.

Lego Batman 2 will be released this spring for Wii U.  It's available now on other game systems.
