The Lego Jurassic World release date arrives Friday, just in time for the Jurassic World release date in theaters and it is looking like this movie tie could go against the grain and deliver a fun and exciting experience even though it needs to arrive in time for the Jurassic World theatrical release.
Jurassic World is a return to the start of a dinosaur theme park and early reviews point to a fun summer film. The Lego Jurassic World release spans all four Jurassic Park films with scenes and levels in various settings that you will remember from the original Jurassic Park to the new Jurassic World movie.
Here’s a quick look at what gamers need to know about the Lego Jurassic World release before they buy the game, with information that parents will want to know before buying Lego Jurassic World as well.
Lego Jurassic World Release Date
The Lego Jurassic World release date is Friday June 12, 2015. This is the same as the theatrical Jurassic World release date, so you can play before or after you watch the action on-screen.
Unlike a lot of recent releases, the Lego Jurassic World release date arrives for all consoles and even some handhelds at the same time.
Lego Jurassic World comes to PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and the PlayStation Vita. The game is $59.99 on the newest consoles, $49.99 on older consoles and $29.99 on handheld gaming consoles.
What Parents Need to Know about Lego Jurassic World
The Lego Jurassic World is sure to be a hot item for gamers of all ages. One common thread is that the Lego games do appeal to younger gamers, which means parents will want to know what kids will see and do in the game.
The Lego Jurassic World rating is E 10+ which means it is rated ok for gamers 10 years of age and older. This is a lower age threshold than the movie which is rated PG 13.
Common Sense Media does not yet offer a parental review of Lego Jurassic World, but traditionally gives good ratings to the Lego games. The Lego the Hobbit game earned a positive review and note that it is appropriate for age 10 and up.
The Everyone 10+ rating means, “Content is generally suitable for ages 10 and up. May contain more cartoon, fantasy or mild violence, mild language and/or minimal suggestive themes.”
In Lego Jurassic World, the ESRB specifically mentions, Cartoon Violence and Crude Humor.
Lego Jurassic World Deals
Although we are seeing plenty of deals on older Jurassic Park movies bundled with Jurassic World tickets, there are not a lot of Lego Jurassic World deals.
The best deal we could find is for Gamers Club Unlocked members at Best Buy who save 20% off the game. This is $6 off the handheld version, $10 off the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U version and $12 off the PS4 and Xbox One version.
You must pay $30 for a Gamers Club Unlocked membership, but that earns you 20% off all games for the next two years. The membership pays for itself in about three game purchases.
Lego Jurassic World Pre-Order Bonus
There is at least one Lego Jurassic World pre-order bonus worth checking out. GameStop offers a free Lego playset with the Lego Jurassic World pre-order while supplies last.
This is a LEGO Dino Trap Mini Playset that is free with the purchase, when you pre-order. If you order online it will ship with the game. If you order in store you will pick it up with the game.
The description and image shows that this is a small playset, but it is pretty cool as far as pre-order bonuses for a kids game go.
GameStop describes the playset as, “The Gallimimus Trap building toy consists of a dinosaur and a trap rigged with chain that swings over its head when it approaches the drumstick bait.”
Lego Jurassic World Videos
If you cannot buy the Lego Jurassic World game at release, you can still watch a collection of hilarious Lego Jurassic World videos with your child to get some of the enjoyment from the game.
Some of the Lego Jurassic World videos are from the game, while others simply use the new Lego Jurassic World minifigs and pieces that are on sale in addition to the movie release and the game.
That’s what you need to know about the Lego Jurassic World release date and the tie ins to other Lego sets.
