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.
