Over the years TT games have grown the Lego series into quite a franchise. In fact it is rare now for a series to avoid being touched by some Lego mayhem-Harry Potter, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman and Lord of the Rings have all been transformed into some epic Lego adventures.
Realistically, it was only a matter of time before Marvel got in on the action and brought in their massive cast of heroes and villains to the fray. So to many the newest addition to the franchise, Lego Marvel Super heroes comes as no surprise.
Many people will be looking forward to smashing, building and exploring the world of Marvel in a whole new medium – Lego style!
Lego Marvel Super Heroes to Have Original Story
Let’s face it – the Lego games have never been about their story. In fact, because most of the games are based on a series of movies or books storylines which are in most cases little more than a spoof retelling of events in a humorous way.
So it will be interesting to see how the story to Lego Marvel Super Heroes will pan out, Marvel are writing it and it will be an original story, which breaks tradition in the series so far.
Many people see this as a risk as one of the most enjoyable elements of the game seen some key plot points played out in a hilarious Lego fashion. It is likely however that we can trust Marvel to come up with some hilarious storyline concepts to play through. With a cast list this big and diverse how could they not?
Lego Mavel Super Heroes To Be Released On Next Gen
The gameplay itself is expected to follow the traditional Lego format with TT games adopting the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” approach to the series. As this will likely be the last Lego game of the current generation, they will be hoping to top it off with the best Lego adventure yet. The game will feature over 150 characters in all.
The game will also be released on the next generation consoles. Game director Arthur Parsons has been quoted as saying the main difference of course will be the upgraded graphics, but there are a few other features.
“On top of that, there are no loading times. It’s just instant because it’s coming straight off the hard drive.
“It was quite late in the day when we decided to go on next-gen. We’ve been developing on PC, and effectively, it’s an incredibly high-end PC version. It’s really cool.”
Lego Mavel Super Heroes has been marked down for a November release. Check out the Gamescom trailer below.
