Thanks to the early release of some 2009 LEGO sets, we now have confirmation for at least one new LEGO video game for 2009, LEGO Racers: The Video Game! The advertisement for the game, which features preliminary box art, can be seen on the top of certain 2009 Racers sets boxes. Systems the game will be released for have not yet been announced. This is the first non-licensed LEGO video game to be released since 2006's BIONICLE Heroes. It is also the forth racing-centric LEGO video game to be released, after 1999's LEGO Racers, 2001's LEGO Racers 2, and 2002's Drome Racers. We will keep you posted on any other 2009 LEGO video game news to come our way.

Sounds neat! I can't wait for it to come out; I bet it's even better than Bionicle Heroes!

I don't know. I mean racers? They should make a new lego starwars clone wars game. That would be cool. :)

I agree,a clone wars game would be better.Although,this is pretty o.k. for the time being.

This sounds interesting. I hope it's like Lego Racers 2. That was a great game. I loved how you had the powerups that damaged other drivers and also I loved how you could get on foot. A Clone Wars game would be cool to, and I'd also really like an Indy game including Crystal Skull levels.

Full customisation would be a most excellent feature... Here's hoping that the game has it =D

Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Now this is what I have anticipated! With all the advancements in gaming this should be an awesome game! I hope the classic racers can be in it too!

Well that's too bad. Maybe with all the money they've gotten from the previous games like LEGO star wars, indiana jones, and batman, they'll make a good racers game for once. Although i did like the the one on computer.

I will only like it if they keep the same whimsical style of all of the other lego games.

If the game is like the first Lego Racers, I'm getting it.

That is awesome! I wish they will release a Lego Star Wars The Clone Wars video game one day! Lego City the video game would be fun, too!

I was thinking it would be cool if they made a Lego City Game too! I personally don't think the Racers game'll be that great but, as I always say:"We'll have to wait until it comes out and see what it's like then"

Ha, I knew that it was only a matter of time. Now, all they have to do is get together and make a lego pirates game.

In addition to a Clone Wars, and Crystal Skull game I would Love to see a Pirate, Castle, City, and Agents themed game. To me Racers the video game just doesn't sound too exciting.

The origional one for the PC and N64 was quite good. (AND HILLOARIOUS)
From the current intel though, it dosen't look like the multi-theme whimsical racing game that the origional is famous for. But I have been way off the mark before...

I hope they make a Pirates game.

I hope in has the same basic structure of the original but with better graphics, more power ups, more characters, tracks, difficulty levels, classic and new bosses, and my favorite, the customizer for cars. Cutscenes would be cool in it also.

Yeah, but maybe the characters wouldn't drive go-karts? I think the best Racers game Lego could make is a Tiny Turbos one, where you could race with no minifigs and it would be a lot like Need For Speed...... Not that NFS is awesome or anything. It would be really cool for a TT racing game - anyone who agrees please comment - ~Raphy~

A Lego Racers game will be cool! I hope it will similar to Lego Racers 2.

I hope this one has races similar to the first Lego racers, but exploration and battles like Lego Racers 2; because no offense Lego but the races in LR2 kind of sucked, as did the power ups, yet the first one was probably my favorite racing game of all time and the power ups rocked. I just wish I hadn't let my brother play my copy of LR and LR2

I would really like customization too, along with the cool graphics that the Playstation 3 and Xbox360 has to offer. Here's a suggestion for a LEGO video game: Lego Star Wars Battlefront!
