Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 Reveal
Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and developer TT Games have announced that they are developing a sequel to Lego Marvel Superheroes.
You can get a brief first look at the game via the Guardians of the Galaxy-themed teaser trailer below:
The original Lego Marvel Super Heroes was released in 2013 around the height of the Lego game movement. Much like the other Lego games developed by TT (formerly known as Traveller’s Tales), it didn’t stray too far from the formula that helped the Lego game franchise achieve global success. Still, Marvel Super Heroes is considered to be one of the top-tier Lego games largely by virtue of its stunning roster which includes an incredible mix of known and obscure Marvel heroes.
For Lego Marvel Superheroes 2, TT is going to go the Turtles in Time route by stretching the adventure across multiple eras. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is based on the premise that Kang the Conquerer has ripped open a few terrestrial portals which seem to be causing havoc in time and space (which, let’s face it, rarely are at peace in this universe).
The brief statement that Warner Bros. released to accompany this teaser trailer suggests that the playable time periods will include such locations as Ancient Egypt, the Old West, the planet Sakaar from the Planet Hulk series, and New York City circa 2099. While Warner Bros. and Telltale aren’t quite ready to reveal the game’s full roster (which will likely include over 100 characters), they did note that Thor, Hulk, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Green Goblin, and various other villains and heroes will be playable in this sequel.
Warner Bros. and TT have promised to release a full trailer for the game on May 23rd. As for the game itself, Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 will be released on November 14th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Switch version of the game will be released shortly thereafter.
