LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Announced

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
Traveller's Tales 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:

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. 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.
Was your favorite character not mentioned? Fear not, as over 100 characters will be unlockable when LEGO Marvel Super Heroes hits retailers this Fall.
