A rating for a Lego 2K football game has been spotted in South Korea.
As reported by Gematsu, the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea has given an ‘all ages’ rating to the game, titled Lego 2K Goooal, and also notes that the applicant was Take-Two Interactive.
Given the game’s title, Lego 2K Goooal is almost certainly a Lego football game published by 2K.
This would finally confirm VGC’s exclusive report from February 2022 in which we revealed that Lego was partnering with 2K for a new line of Lego sports games.
At the time, people with knowledge of 2K’s plans told us that the publisher had signed a new multi-game partnership with Lego, which was intended to start with a football game developed by Sumo Digital and would then be followed by an open-world Lego racing game developed by Visual Concepts.
Ultimately, the racing game – which was later revealed to be Lego 2K Drive – was released first, meaning the newly discovered rating suggests Lego 2K Goooal will be the second game in the deal.
In December 2022, a Lego footballer minifig in 2K-branded packaging was also spotted on Lego’s certification page, seemingly corroborating our report further.
The packaging showed a character named Finnius Dash standing on a football pitch wearing a purple shark head mask and what appears to be a Barcelona shirt.
Crucially, the packaging also says Lego Games at the top and features the 2K logo in the bottom corner, suggesting a game connection.
Since Finnius Dash is not a known character in any existing 2K game, he may appear in Lego 2K Goooal.
