Lego Marvel Superheroes Announced; Coming Autumn 2013

Warner Bros announce the latest LEGO game coming to consoles, PC and handhelds this Autumn.

The new game is set for release across Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, 3DS, DS and PS Vita in Autumn of 2013, with promises to “bring the characters, vehicles and action of Marvel’s renowned universe to the world of Lego build-and-play adventure”. The new game is in development at TT Games.

The newly announced title is going to feature over 100 unlockable characters from the Marvel universe and will mix family-friendly action and puzzle-solving gameplay highly reminiscent of previous Lego games, all wrapped up in the humor that they’re famous for.

The press release touts the upcoming story-line for the game:

“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.”

It’s worth noting that TT Games are also working on Lego City Undercover, the Wii U exclusive that’s highly anticipated.
