Regular readers of this site know how much I love LEGO games and their adorableness, so I'm delighted to report that TT Games, The LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment have teamed up for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes!
I guess LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes did well enough that Marvel wanted a piece of that LEGO pie. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will feature an all-new storyline where Nick Fury calls up on Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other Marvel heroes to save Earth from various threats such as Loki or Galactus.
"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," said TQ Jefferson, Vice President, 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."
There will be over 100 Marvel characters to unlock (I hope Squirrel Girl is in there!) and the game will take place in iconic locations of the Marvel Universe. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is currently slated for a Fall 2013 release on literally every system currently in active use (Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii U, DS, 3DS and Vita). I can't believe I have to wait that long!
