WB Games and TT Games have officially announced LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. This followup to the 2013 hit will see even more Marvel characters come together in an all new adventure. We don’t yet have a full, official trailer, but the teaser below will prepare you for the full unveiling on May 23rd.
The press release reads: “Bringing together iconic Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains from different eras and realities, along with signature LEGO humor, the latest epic adventure from TT Games transports players into a cosmic battle across a myriad of Marvel locations ripped from time and space into the incredible open hub world of Chronopolis. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 will be available starting November 14, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will be released for Nintendo Switch this holiday.”
The LEGO series of games has been hugely successful across the years. Taking large, well known properties and mashing them together, then offering up a fun, collectible-filled adventure is a formula that just keeps working for this series.
LEGO Dimensions is the big toys-to-life mashup, allowing properties as diverse as Portal, The Wizard of Oz, and Jurassic World to mix together in fun and interesting ways. Still, there’s plenty of room for these tailored experiences, putting together specific elements of a single franchise, as we saw in the original LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
What new characters and stories will be in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2? The announcement gives some hints: “Players will go head-to-head with the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror in an epic battle across Chronopolis, from Ancient Egypt and The Old West to Sakaar and New York City in 2099. Along the way, gamers will be able to take control of a host of iconic characters, from Cowboy Captain America from the past to Spider-Man 2099 from the future along with Thor, Hulk, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Green Goblin, and dozens of other Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains.”
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes hits PS4 and Xbox One in November 2017. It will arrive later on Nintendo Switch, some time during the holiday season.
