The day of the console game tie-in to films may be over, but mobile steps in to fill the void. In November 2013, as Thor: The Dark World hits theaters, a game will also hit iPhone, iPad, and Android platforms. The game, written by Christopher Yost (Marvel Comics mainstay, and writer of the film), features a brand-new story.
The game is developed by Gameloft and features third-person action gameplay, taking Thor through the nine realms in over 100 missions. While the debut trailer here only shows single player action, there will be multi-player modes announced closer to release.
This marks the first action game tie-in to a Marvel Studios film since Captain America, the final game produced under Marvel's movie license to Sega.
