Captain America: Super Solider Lets You Punch Red Skull in the FACE in 2011

Captain America Super Solider Sceenshot


















Today, SEGA announced the ineviatble arrival of Captain America: Super Solider, a third-person action adventure game coming to the Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, Wii, and DS next year. Set to tie-in with the upcoming movie of the same name, Captain America: Super Solider sees cap battling against the Red Skull, Hydra, and the forces of the Iron Cross (what, we can't just call them Nazi's anymore?) across the darkest days of World War II.

Handling development duties is Canadian studio Next Level Games, most recently famous for the critically acclaimed Punch-Out!! remake for the Wii. Expect the game to be heavily focused on shield-play, as Cap uses the disc of justice to take out multiple enemies at once, deflect incoming fire back at enemies, solve puzzles, and scale walls. Also a primary focus of gameplay will be Captain America's acrobatic skills, focusing on fluid platforming through what I'm sure will be many Wolfenstien-inspired landscapes of Nazi… er… Iron Cross Germany.

Avengers: The Initative scribe Christos Gage will be handling writing duties for the game. While it is heavily based on the upcoming movie, Gage will be adding new elements to Captain America: Super Soldier in order further flesh out the story and add more exciting gameplay scenarios. Sorry, Brubaker fans, but on plus side Christos writes a pretty decent Cap, so I've got pretty good hopes for the story.

We'll have to wait and see if Captain America: Super Soldier can avoid the curse of the short development times movie tie-in games are famous for. Until then, munch on some of these tasty screenshots and concept artwork!

  1. If it’s a videogame you actually can’t call the Nazis, these days. Or show the Swastika, either. Because in territories like Germany and Austria if you release your game with those IN you can actually be criminally charged for it! 🙂 I kid you not. I work for a videogames firm, m’self. And we’ve had to do that before. In Germany and Austria it is illegal to display a Swastika under very strictly policed Hate Crime laws.

    Crazy, huh?

  2. Looks pretty cool.  I hope it plays as well as it looks.

  3. Looks good but I want to see some game play footage before I judge.

  4. The screen shots show some promise with the visuals, but if the Iron Man games are any indication on the gameplay, then I’ll probably pass.  Those games weren’t terrible, but they just weren’t that engaging.  Hopefully, the developers are looking at Batman: Arkham Asylum as an example of what to do when making a comic book game.

  5. @theswordisdrawn that is a real shame, I hope they don’t have to change that in the movie as well

  6. One only hopes that there’s a little Iron cross guy with a JJ Jameson’s mustache in it , that we can punch.

  7. Looks cool. But then again so did the Iron Man games in screenshots…..and well all know how those turned out.

  8. as a german i can attest to the display of swastikas or for example the twin lightning symbol of the SS being prohibited by law. same goes for a couple of other symbols. 

    still, it’s not like they are forbidden under any circumstance. of course you’ll find then in history books, documentaries and even movies(indiana jones and the likes). so it’s allowed to show them in a proper historical context, but not for personal use or enjoyment. captain america reborn issue 2 never came out here because of swastikas on the cover. so i got issue one and that’s it.

     also, KISS had to use another font for their name in germany because of the double SS resembling the lightning rune. 

    so yeah, we take the whole third reich issue very seriously, even today. kinda good though, so the neo-fascist political parties(a tiny minority nowadays) can’t abuse these symbols for their stupid parades and what have you. 

  9. @theswordisdrawn: Thanks for clearing that up. I was wondering…

  10. @Kenza: I like that law.

  11. I find the law completely abhorrent.

  12. Let’s keep this discussion about the game/movie/comic, and not the relative merits of free speech in various societies. Thanks.

  13. Ha–Yes let’s not talk about free speech



  14. I sure wanted to see Cap punch Hitler in his little Stache!
