Marvel Mighty Heroes Revealed: A Four-Player Mobile Brawler With Everyone From Spider-Man To Star-Lord [TEASER TRAILER]
DeNA and Marvel Entertainment have just announced Marvel Mighty Heroes, a four-player co-op fighting game for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android phones and tablets.
The game is a real-time brawler that will allow you to choose from characters like Iron Man, Groot, Captain America, Star-Lord, Gamora, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Daredevil, plus dozens more. You'll form up a team of both heroes and villains alike, beating your way to victory, presumably as beat'm up classics. Along with playing online with three friends, there will be leaderboards to see how your team stacks up against the world.
Can we just remark on how amazing it is to have Groot and Star-Lord listed among the Marvel lumineries? Who would have ever thought we'd see Star-Lord shoulder to shoulder with Iron Man? Let alone the sentient plant...
"Building off of the success of Marvel War of Heroes, our first Marvel-licensed title, Marvel Mighty Heroes is a fast and tactical battle game that will combine evolving Marvel stories with enthralling co-op and competitive multiplayer gameplay," said Barry Dorf, Vice President of Partnerships and Alliances at DeNA. "Marvel fans and gamers alike will have the chance to create the ultimate team of Super Heroes and Super Villains to take on waves of enemies from the Marvel Universe."
They have also released the first teaser trailer for the game, which unfortunately doesn't feature any actual gameplay footage (we're still not sure how it plays) but does a good job of showcasing the semi-superdeformed art style for the game. Check it out below.
Marvel Mighty Heroes will hit for iOS and Android devices sometime soon in 2015, and yes, it's a free-to-play title. If you want to pre-register you can do so at MarvelMightyHeroes.com, which will give you info on prizes up until the game's launch, and also allow you to vote for either Hulk or Rocket Raccoon as a free special hero at launch. Make the right choice.
