The team behind the Bits N’ Bricks podcast has confirmed that the series will continue later this year, potentially covering games including LEGO Rock Raiders and BIONICLE.
Brian Crecente and Ethan Vincent have just wrapped up the first season of the podcast, which was initially launched to celebrate 25 years of LEGO video games, with a special retrospective episode that looks back over all previous 18 episodes.
But this isn’t the last we’ll see of the series – far from it. Towards the end of the nearly-hour-long episode, Ronny Scherer – senior director of LEGO Games Asia-Pacific and executive producer of the podcast – revealed that Bits N’ Bricks will continue until at least the end of 2021, in order to ‘complete the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the first LEGO video game’.
“What we agreed as a team is that we’re going to continue making content as long as someone is willing to listen and as long as we have stories to tell,” Scherer elaborated, before teasing that the second season will start in a ‘short while’.
Crecente and Vincent have their own longlist of subjects to cover, but they’ve also been taking on board what their listeners have been asking for – and the hosts explained that they’re now looking into recording episodes based on some of those requests.
“We don’t want to make any promises, because we’re still in the process of developing them,” Crecente said. “But I can say some of the things that… we may do episodes on, include things like Rock Raiders, BIONICLE, Loco, Racers and a lot of the historic stuff that we’ve heard so many people say they want to hear more about. So we’re listening to you, and we’re hoping to deliver on some of those things.”
The team plans to divide the upcoming episodes into individual seasons, before wrapping everything up with a final episode ‘before New Year’s’. For now, you can dive back into all 19 episodes from the first season over at the LEGO Gaming YouTube channel, or through your preferred podcast provider.
