LEGO: Lord of The Rings is out now in North America for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, and to celebrate, TT Games has released a launch trailer.

Tolkien fans can now play as their favorite characters including members of the Fellowship, Nazgul, Sauron, Gollum, Balrog and over 84 others. Players will get to experience events from all three films, take part in battles on an epic scale, and face all manner of the evil Sauron's minions, until finally reaching the heart of Mount Doom. Fans of the series can also look forward to seeing LEGO versions of Ringwraiths, Saruman, orcs, Uruk-hai, mountain trolls, and the evil spider Shelob – none of which look any cuter just because they’re now rendered in LEGO form.

Players can also utilise the power of the Palantir or Seeing-stone to jump between multiple storylines and collect and create new items in the Blacksmith Shop, with available weapons including the Light of Earendil, Elven rope, and various swords and bows.

Check out the launch trailer below, and drop a comment if you plan on picking this up for PS3 or PS Vita.
