LEGO’s omni-media takeover continues.
While Spider-Man won’t be joining the cinematic Avengers any time soon, his deligtful mini-fig joins the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the newly announced LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game. Having just assembled a LEGO Lex Luthor mech and clocked in a handful of hours in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes over the holiday break, this is a welcome bit of news.
“LEGO Marvel Super Heroes” offers an original storyline in which 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. LEGO and Marvel fans will enjoy classic LEGO videogame adventure and humor, while playing as their favorite Marvel characters.
From the sounds of things, much of the Marvel catalog is involved in this one, from the usual suspects listed above as well as the Fantastic Four and increasingly ubiquitous Guardians of the Galaxy.
Look for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes starting this Fall on Windows PC, PS3, the 360, Wii-U, the Nintendo DS, 3DS and the PS Vita.
