Warner Bros. Announces LEGO Marvel Super Heroes


Jason Clement

It seems that TT Games has been putting out at least two LEGO adaptation titles for the last two years now (with last year seeing the release of LEGO Batman 2 and LEGO The Lord of the Rings), and with LEGO City Undercover having already been announced for release on the Wii U (and being published by Nintendo as well) this year, it's not surprising that this year will also see the release of at least two more games.

 

Warner Bros., the publisher behind the two aforementioned LEGO titles, has announced that TT Games is developing LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, of which will be the first LEGO game to feature superheroes from Marvel. Accordingly, the game will feature an original storyline that has Nick Fury enlisting the help of many of the super heroes in the Marvel Universe to save Earth from Loki and Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds.

 

“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, TT Games' Managing Director.
“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.”

 

The game is said to have more than a 100 characters to unlock, including all of the fan favorites such as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, the Hulk, and even Galactus, among many others. You can expect lots of traditional LEGO gameplay in the way of solving puzzles, action sequences, and lots of collecting. No word on whether the game will have an open world setting or if the game will have fully voice-acted scenes, but seeing as the last two LEGO games had both, it seems likely for this one as well.

 

What's interesting about all this is that Warner Bros. actually owns DC Entertainment (the parent company of DC Comics and thus the parent company of the Batman franchise), so publishing the LEGO Batman games is a logical and obvious decision for them. However, Marvel Comics is a competing brand to DC, so to see Warner Bros. license a LEGO game based on their direct competitor's properties (which they would be publishing) is an interesting move on their part indeed.

 

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is set to release on all major consoles and handhelds next Fall.

 

Are you looking forward to playing as Marvel superheroes in LEGO form?
