LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Season Pass Skipping Nintendo
Warner Bros. has revealed details around the downloadable content (DLC) for the latest in its long line of LEGO games. LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will receive six DLC packs, and in a first for the series, a Season Pass will be available to include all DLC. Unfortunately, that option seems to be skipping the Wii U and 3DS (and PS Vita for those counting).
The game is being released on a myriad of platforms on November 11 in the US and November 14 in Europe. Interestingly, the first three DLC packs will be available from launch, begging the question – why not include them with the game to start with?
Here are the details of the first three packs:
- The Dark Knight Pack: Adds a mission based on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises movie, with characters like Commissioner Gordon, Harvey Dent, Bane, and Catwoman.
- Man of Steel Pack: Adds a mission that sees you helping Jor-El, Lara, and their robot Kelex send the infant Superman to Earth, while General Zod and his forces attack.
- Batman 75th Pack: Allows you to play as the Joker and Harley Quinn through a variety of set pieces. It also allows you to play as different versions of Batman, including one based on his first appearance in Detective Comics #27.
Details about the remaining three DLC packs are yet to be revealed. The Season Pass will cost you $15 (on those other systems), while the individual packs will cost $3 each. Whilst there is definitely no season pass option for Nintendo’s systems, it’s unclear at this time whether the individual DLC packs will be available for the Wii U and 3DS – we’ll keep you updated once that information is made available.
What do you think about the DLC that’s been revealed so far? Let us know in the comments section if you’ll be picking this game up – and the DLC if possible.

The dlc will probably not be on Wii U, 3DS or Vita. Lego Marvel & Lego Batman 2 never got their dlc. Definitely not supporting this game. Tired of third party developers not giving Wii U everything that the other consoles have. :(

It’s sad isn’t it. Seems greedy to me – just give fans who pay for the game the full content! Or, if there must be DLC, give it to everyone. It makes it worse that there’s no excuse for this on Nintendo, as LEGO tends to sell well on these platforms. Better than PC, I believe.

Unless TTGames or WB Games gives a legitimate excuse for not porting the DLC to the Wii U, I’m calling BS and being completely done with their crap. There is no excuse to gimp out on a whole platform for no reason at all (I think it’s understandable that the DLC isn’t on 3DS and Vita, they’re a whole different game really, but Wii U? Come on..) The Wii U version of LEGO games probably sells the best out of every other version just because the Wii U is probably the most family friendly with the gamepad. It infuriates me how the DLC isn’t available on Wii U. It’s pathetic.
