In advance of a planned presence next week at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Marvel has unveiled the box art for the upcoming Lego Marvel Super Heroes game, seen above.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes offers an original storyline in which Nick Fury calls upon Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes spanning the Marvel Universe to save Earth from such threats as the vengeance of Loki and the hunger of Galactus, Devourer of the Worlds. LEGO and Marvel fans will enjoy classic LEGO video game adventure and humor, while playing as their favorite Marvel characters.
In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, players will unlock more than 100 characters from across the Marvel Universe, including fan favorites like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Deadpool, Loki and Galactus! The game will pack in a plethora of super-cool character abilities, combat-like action sequences, epic battle scenes, puzzle-solving and a unique story told with playful LEGO humor.
Marvel revealed this via their website:
“Fans heading to San Diego for Comic-Con will be able to get their hands on “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes” throughout the convention at the Marvel booth (#2329), the LEGO booth (#2829) and at the Xbox Gaming Lounge at the Hyatt!
