Eager Lego fans who’ve got their constructive mitts on early releases of the Lord of the Rings sets have confirmed that the packaging also nods towards a coming videogame along the same theme. This was also the case with Lego’s ‘Super Hero’ sets, which confirmed Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes before it was unveiled by TT Games.
    In addition, a (now pulled but preserved by google’s cache) ShopTo listing had a Lego Lord of the Rings game scheduled for release this coming October. That would fit fairly neatly alongside the film release of The Hobbit, based on JRR Tolkien’s tale of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins.
    Based on all of the above, it seems the game’s ring of invisibility has slipped off. An official announcement should turn up in the coming weeks, perhaps at E3.
