LEGO Marvel Video Game To Feature Wolverine, Loki, Black Widow, & More!


With LEGO producing toy sets for the Marvel Universe, it was only a matter of time before a deal for a video game was struck. We just found out it’s officially happening! So when can you expect to Hulk Smash some LEGO blocks? 

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes it will be called, sticking with the branding of their toy line. According to the press release:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment announced today that “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes” will be available beginning Fall 2013 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the Wii U system and Windows PC, as well as the Nintendo DS handheld system, Nintendo 3DS handheld system and PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system. “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes” is the first instalment in the highly successful LEGO videogame franchise to feature famous Marvel characters.

If you’re a fan of the LEGO video games you’ve probably played LEGO Batman and LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, which is being turned into a direct to video film called LEGO Batman The Movie – DC Super Heroes. Where will the Marvel game take us?

“Nick Fury calls upon Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes spanning the Marvel Universe to save Earth from such threats as the vengeance of Loki and the hunger of Galactus, Devourer of the Worlds,” they write. “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!”

Much like the Marvel comics and films, the game will explore real-world locations like New York. “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.

I’m a little behind on my LEGO video games but I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.

    How can they represent 100 completely different power sets? They won’t. A lot of those 100 characters will just be skins over characters you’ve already played. And ugh. Wii U but not Wii? I get it.. but ugh.
