Coming off the success of The Lego Movie Videogame, WB Games has given its next big Lego endeavor, based on the first two Hobbit films, a release date.

Lego the Hobbit will make its way to shelves on April 8th, and will be available for pretty much every console imaginable, including PC, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Throughout the game, you'll take control of a number of memorable characters, including Gandalf, Thorin and Bilbo Baggins, among others. You'll be able to take on goblins, collect treasure and solve puzzles, in pure Lego fashion.

We'll have some strategies for Lego the Hobbit in the weeks ahead.
