LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Not many details, but coming Fall 2013.

LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes™
Marvel Super Heroes are assembling for an action-packed, brick-smashing good time! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment announced today that LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes will be available beginning Fall 2013 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Wii U™ system and Windows PC, as well as the Nintendo DS™ handheld system, Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the first instalment in the highly successful LEGO videogame franchise to feature famous Marvel characters.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes complements the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes construction toy collection, which brings the characters, vehicles and action of Marvel’s renowned universe to the world of LEGO build-and-play adventure. There are currently eight iconic scenes from the X-Men, Iron Man and Spider-Man franchises available and more construction sets tied to the new Iron Man 3 feature film will launch later this spring.

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. LEGO and Marvel fans will enjoy classic LEGO videogame adventure and humor, while playing as their favorite Marvel characters.

“We’re very excited to bring a myriad of classic Marvel characters to life in LEGO form for some fun, family-friendly gameplay in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “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.”

“Fans of both LEGO and Marvel have wanted this game for years, and we’re addressing that demand with more Marvel Universe characters than ever in a console game,” said TQ Jefferson, Vice President, Games Production, Marvel Entertainment. “If you’re a fan of Spider-Man, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy or scores of other Marvel characters, this is the game for you.”

In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, players will unlock more than 100 characters from across the Marvel Universe, including fan favorites like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Deadpool, Loki and Galactus! The game will pack in a plethora of super-cool character abilities, combat-like action sequences, epic battle scenes, puzzle-solving and a unique story told with playful LEGO humor.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is being developed by TT Games and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
I wonder if we'll ever see a LEGO Marvel vs DC game?

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

That's immediately what I thought of. A crossover would be freaking huge. I would even buy that day one (and I always wait for when they hit $20). Very excited about Marvel Heroes, but they better have Daredevil or else, that's all I'm saying

If it's as good as Lego Batman 2, I'll be stoked.

Agreed. My son loves Lego Batman 2 and I played it quite a bit too. I'll be all over this.

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Wow, Warner, the owners of DC, are putting out a Marvel based game?

I figured Disney would be in on this like they were with the Lego Pirates game.

I liked Lego Batman 2, even if the open world aspect became tedious and repetitive.

This is an easy purchase. I enjoyed Batman 2 and I'm enjoying the Lord of the Rings version too.

Warner put out three Marvel movies, Blade I-III, through New Line. I think Warner mostly cares about making money, and Lego having a connection with Marvel and the popularity of the Lego games could only help.

Cartoon Network is a Warner subsidiary and they air Marvel cartoons too. Warner definitely doesn't have some kind of "kill it with fire" attitude towards Marvel.

Several Marvel/DC crossover comics exist too and they're always either published by one or the other. And yet their publishing facilities haven't spontaneously combusted.

Does Cartoon Network? I thought they were all on Disney XD or whatever that channel is. Super Hero Squad was on CN, but I don't think they're making new episodes anymore.

Other than reprints of past work, editors at DC have been pretty vocal that no more crossovers will be happening, despite Marvel being game, as well as several creators.

Yup, I have been watching the Marvel animated shows on that Disney channel.

BTW, I have all of the Lego games most of them on the PS3 but one on the DS and PSP.

CN doesn't air any Marvel cartoons. I guess if you are counting in the past, yes, they have. But any Marvel show is now going to be on Disney XD.

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

I wasn't sure if anything was currently airing on CN because the last animated superhero show I watched was either Justice League or that CGI Spider-Man on MTV.

In any case, when stuff like Super Hero Squad was airing on CN Marvel may not have been owned by Disney but CN was still under the same corporate umbrella as DC.

Bottom line: once you get outside the small sliver if the Warner empire that is DC Comics you find that other entities don't really have any sort of fanboyish Marvel boycott going.

LEGO GALACTUS!

I've never bought any of the LEGO games, except for LEGO Indy due to it coming w/ the 360, but this one? It's got my attention. Also LEGO DEADPOOL!

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

I will be fighting my son to hold off on this day one. We are about 1/3 way through LotR now so we will probably be ready for it. I hope this continues with quests like LotR. The past 2 Lego games have been huge advancements for the series hope they continue.

Short interview about the game with some early footage of some characters, particularly Hulk.

Time Warner has always had a hands-off approach to the individual decisions of its divisions, but that was mostly in a prior era when Marvel wasn't owned by Disney with its horde of cash.

Marvel productions outside of Disney's control are drying up and they are pulling all their brands in house, which will almost necessitate Warner's corporate divisions to do the same in the future with their own brands.

The era of cross-licensing will probably be coming to an end, very soon.

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Just read about preorder bonuses. And it looks like Wal-mart will have my preorder (my son is mad already there is no Iron Patriot figure), kinda lame not to put this figure out now with the movie being released this week.

Wal-Mart: Iron Patriot Minifig

I will accept this as a successor to Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Wish we could get some more of those games, though.
