and LEGO might not be taking over the world, but they are taking over quite a few universes. From Indiana Jones
to Star Wars
to Lord of the Rings
to DC Comics
to Pirates of the Caribbean
to Harry Potter
, virtually every well-known world has had their time to shine as a LEGO adaptation.
We can now add Marvel's world of super heroes to the list.
Announced today, Traveller's Tales will be bringing LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
to your consoles.
This new title will feature an original story in which superspy Nick Fury assembles Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, and Wolverine (...that's just for starters) to save the Earth from some of the biggest baddies in the Marvel Universe (Loki and Galactus are specifically mentioned).
Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing is excited to bring another IP into the Traveller's Tales' fold:
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'. 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.
TQ Jefferson, Vice President, Games Production, Marvel Entertainment teases a few more of the heroes that gamers will be able to rock and block with:
