Lego Marvel Superheroes headed to Wii U in 2013

The Lego series of games have certainly found a resonating point with gamers, with many franchises such as Batman, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings enjoying successful lego-ized ports of their stories. Now several Marvel superheroes will join the ranks of those immortalized in block fame.

The game will feature an original storyline where Nick Fury will need the help of Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes in order to help stop Loki and Galactus. According to Tom Stone, TT Games Publishing’s 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.” Sounds pretty great.

The game will feature more than 100 unlockable characters from the Marvel universe, including Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Deadpool. There’s no word on when the game will be available, but we’ll keep you abreast of any trailers that pop up over the coming weeks.

I already got banned on mii verse for saying nazi zombies on Cod community lol wtf??

      Calm down!! It’s still early! It’s not like E3 didn’t exist to announce such games.  Plus, you how Nintendo likes to keep relatively quiet until then.  I sure hope you didn’t buy a PS3 at launch, you probably did something crazy if you did.   Maybe even pulled your hair out of your head lol. The PS3 had a horrible launch lineup.  But now their are great games for PS3.  Until E3 I’ll just play Injustice:God Among Us, Sniper Elite V2 & Ninja Gaiden 3, & Tekken, Aliens, COD, ZombiU, Assassins Creed 3 and what other good mature games that makes a surprise early entry for 2013.   Btw, are you sure you want to skip out on the next Metroid, Fatal Frame, & Xenoblade? Be patient man…

      Baynouta 2 did not catch your mind 

      • brownygtst94

        oh great so 2 titles this year yay…. considering majority of all new cross platform games are NOT having a wii u release.. Metro announced not coming to now…Castlevania not coming which is funny considering im pretty sure it was on nes snes .. metal gear .. most titles announced this year being multplats are only coming to ps3 and xbox and not wii u .. even the early stages of development plenty of time to produce the game on a wii u format and yet nothing… Nintendo are not trying or developers dont see a interest in the wii u.. which sucks as i mainly purchased a wii u to play nintendo 1st party games (which are basically delayed or not in the launch window) and the promise from nintendo saying they would focus on the more hardcore mature following.. which besides a few games from ubisoft etc.. i see non off which isnt a issue being only a new console but even worse is the future.. there’s barely anything to look forward or announced.. for the wii u.. 

        • ConCity Soldier

          Actually Crytek said they wanted a Wii U port, but EA didn’t.  EA is still clearly angry at Nintendo for not including Origin.  As far as other games go… You have to remember that a lot of games that will be releasing this year were in development for years already on other consoles.  I read an article a while back where Tomb Raider said that by the time they knew about the Wii U, they were already far into development for 360/PS3. Now, that’s laziness if you ask me since it’s a port, but that’s how they feel.  I guess they would want to push the Wii U’s features though. If you want to be mad at somebody be mad at Rockstar if they don’t release GTA V, because they have stated that they are considering a Wii U port.  So, they can be making that port now.  ZombiU has an attach rate of 14%, that’s higher then God Of War on the PS3 so far.  If ZombiU keeps selling well and possibly pass 1 million then Watchdogs should be in the bag.  Ubisoft has already said that Watchdogs may be on the Wii U, but all of their teams were busy with the many Wii U titles they were making at that time.  But now they can possibly be working on that port.  It’s possible that it’ll be announced at E3 also.  Be patient! Now if E3 2013 is bad then you can complain.

             Good to see people support Wii U but actions speak louder than words. Though I’d be happy if Wii U got Watchdogs and GTA 5 at E3, Why don’t they get them out now? It might be a bit late to ask for a day 1 port of those games now but the devs will only shoot themselves in the foot with waiting until months later to make a late port. If they give GTA/WG a late port then fewer Wii U owners will buy the game because they’ll already own it on another system because they wont want to wait 6 months+ for a Wii U version. These underwhelming sales figures will make it look like no one cares about Wii U (when in fact they think the opposite) and jeopardise the chances of Wii U getting such games in the future. Whereas if a Wii U version was released alongside the other platform’s versions, more people will buy the Wii U versions and it would be a big plus for Wii U sales and support.

          STFU dude theres a walking dead game coming and i bet after Baynouta 2 and Rayman Legends is out, Wii u 3rd party games WILL get better, be Patient There

          • brownygtst94

            lol have a cry loser lol rayman legends .. give me a break what are you 12? lol Yea real mature title

          • MujuraNoKamen

             These ‘hardcore’ games you speak of have nothing to do with the age rating on the box. Take Donkey Kong Country Returns, it is more difficult and hardcore than CoD, Halo and many others with a Mature label. Also, the next CoD and Assassins Creed games will come to Wii U, most likely on day 1 with no late ports, now that the launch window is coming to a close devs will have a lot of time to develop Wii U games rather than starting a Wii U version halfway through the project as happened before. Also look out for Bayonetta 2, Metroid, Zelda, Xenoblade, Monster Hunter and god knows how much 3rd party games at E3 this year. It’s been hinted at that Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes will come to Wii U and Capcom have said they want to start new projects for Wii U (Resident Evil has been hinted or maybe some other ‘mature’ games for you) Possibly Eternal Darkness 2 as well.

          • brownygtst94

            Yes i agree they are more “harder” then cod donkey kong 2 back in the day was one of the hardest games ive played.. im talking about “mature” titles as games that arnt generally proposed to the younger market say for like games like lego,rayman,wonderful 101 etc.. i prefer storylines with violence and plenty of action   but then you refer to donkey kong being harder and yes the campaign was harder on most of the titles but then it didnt have online.. and thats a whole “hardcore” thing in itself always more competition playing again real players then a.i. 

          • MujuraNoKamen

             I wouldn’t say online is a “hardcore” thing but I see what you’re saying, there’s not a lot of mature titles for Wii U right now. We’ll have to wait for another CoD, RE, AC, GTA (maybe) as well as Metroid and Bayonetta 2. Fear not we’ll get them eventually.

          • Hugh Quinn

            14 today and again…STFU

          • brownygtst94

            No but nice assumption stating your 14 just proove’s my point lol.. dont you look silly now.
