Lego Batman fans: Ready for an all-new challenge?

This fall “Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham” hits stores. A new trailer for the game was unveiled Tuesday.

Check it out below.

Clearly, the “Beyond Gotham” in the title is an understatement — in this installment of Batman’s Lego adventures, the Caped Crusader travels to space, realizing that he will need to team up with the Justice League and, believe it or not, the Legion of Doom  to stop Brainiac.

The villain is armed with the power of the Lantern Rings and ready to create universal chaos.

With this third edition, the “Lego Batman” franchise has received a major expansion in player options and choices. As with previous versions, it stars the Dynamic Duo, but now players will also have 150 characters from the DC Comics universe to choose from, including familiar faces from the League of Justice and the Legion of Doom.

Players will be able to travel to the Hall of Justice, the Batcave and the Justice League Watchtower, and they’ll be able to access Batman’s training modules on the Bat Computer, in addition to taking part in various challenges, battles and races.

Judging by the trailer, the game’s trademark sense of humor is still firmly in place. A brooding Dark Knight attempts to set the scene in space with a serious monologue but is interrupted by the Man of Steel, who repeatedly attempts to compliment his new, space-friendly Batsuit.

Before Batman can begin again, the Justice League gets into the act, although Wonder Woman seems less than impressed with the suit.

“Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham” is due out this fall for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, 3DS, Vita and PC.
