Marvel Super Heroes, ASSEMBLE!TT Games and Marvel Entertainment announced Tuesday morning that the next LEGO game would be, as many speculated, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. The distinction, of course, is that they're not just saying "Avengers" or "X-Men," meaning the roster can have anyone from the confirmed Wolverine, Thor, Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Deadpool, Hawkeye, and much more. The game is coming Fall 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC, DS, 3DS, and Vita, so if you want to play the game, you have options.
The story of the game is an original one, with some familiar elements. Nick Fury will pull together heroes from all across the Marvel Universe to stop threats like Loki and Galactus from ravaging the Earth. And yes, all across the universe means the Guardians of the Galaxy, Fantastic Four and other cosmic heroes - they are confirmed, too. In fact, TT Games promises a roster of more than 100 Marvel characters including both heroes and villains will be playable in the epic. Interestingly, the title is being published by longtime LEGO video game publisher Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, a sister company of comic book publisher DC Comics.
