TT Games, the British-based developers behind the LEGO film tie-in series, have revealed that their next project as LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. The project will star over 100 playable heroes, including Spider-Man, Deadpool, Wolverine, Captain America and even Galactus.
Yes please. More details below.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will offer an original storyline in which Nick Fury calls upon Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes to save Earth from a range of threats - not limited to the vengeance of Loki and the hunger of Galactus, Devourer of the Worlds. This being a Travellers Tales game, expect gentle yet anarchic humour and a heady dose of nostalgia.
According to the press release, players will unlock "more than 100 characters from across the Marvel Universe, including fan favorites like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Deadpool, Loki and Galactus! The game will pack in a plethora of super-cool character abilities, combat-like action sequences, epic battle scenes, puzzle-solving and a unique story told with playful LEGO humor."
“We’re very excited to bring a myriad of classic Marvel characters to life in LEGO form for some fun, family-friendly gameplay in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “Players will brave the ultimate mission to save the world as they explore famous landmarks in LEGO New York and take the adventure beyond Earth to iconic locations in the Marvel Universe.”
“Fans of both LEGO and Marvel have wanted this game for years, and we’re addressing that demand with more Marvel Universe characters than ever in a console game,” added TQ Jefferson, Vice President of Games Production, Marvel Entertainment. “If you’re a fan of Spider-Man, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy or scores of other Marvel characters, this is the game for you.”
Considering that there hasn't been anything less than a good LEGO game yet (most have been brilliant, including the recently-released LEGO: The Lord Of The Rings), we're so ready for this. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will release in "Autumn 2013" for practically anything with a screen.
