This is exciting news. After the success of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes last summer, it shouldn't be surprising that a LEGO Marvel game would be released soon. Sure enough, Marvel has officially announced that the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game will be released this fall. The following confirms a number of playable characters, what we can expect from the storyline, and that Iron Man 3 tie-in sets will be released later this Spring. Below is the full press release.



Marvel super heroes are assembling for an action-packed, brick-smashing good time! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment announced today that "LEGO Marvel Super Heroes" will be available beginning Fall 2013 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the Wii U system and Windows PC, as well as the Nintendo DS handheld system, Nintendo 3DS handheld system and PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system. "LEGO Marvel Super Heroes" is the first instalment in the highly successful LEGO videogame franchise to feature famous Marvel characters.

"LEGO Marvel Super Heroes" complements the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes construction toy collection, which brings the characters, vehicles and action of Marvel’s renowned universe to the world of LEGO build-and-play adventure. There are currently eight iconic scenes from the X-Men, Iron Man and Spider-Man franchises available and more construction sets tied to the new "Iron Man 3" feature film will launch later this spring.

"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 videogame adventure and humor, while playing as their favorite Marvel characters.

"We’re very excited to bring a myriad of classic Marvel characters to life in LEGO form for some fun, family-friendly gameplay in 'LEGO Marvel Super Heroes,'" said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. "Players will brave the ultimate mission to save the world as they explore famous landmarks in LEGO New York and take the adventure beyond Earth to iconic locations in the Marvel Universe."

"Fans of both LEGO and Marvel have wanted this game for years, and we’re addressing that demand with more Marvel Universe characters than ever in a console game," said TQ Jefferson, Vice President, Games Production, Marvel Entertainment. "If you’re a fan of Spider-Man, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy or scores of other Marvel characters, this is the game for you."

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.

LMB10 - 1/8/2013, 7:37 AM
Have yet to pick up Lego Batman 2, although I kind of want to. Will definately pick this up, though.
BigDamnHero - 1/8/2013, 7:42 AM
You get to play as Galactus??
spidey1994 - 1/8/2013, 7:48 AM
OMG!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jolt17 - 1/8/2013, 7:52 AM
Would be cool if Wolverine is the small-sized type of character, like Short Round from the Indiana Jones one.
beane2099 - 1/8/2013, 7:52 AM
That's awesome. Totally getting that. I'm hoping when Godzilla comes out in 2014 (probably 2015 at this point) there will be accompanying Lego sets. Lego Godzilla is too awesome NOT to be made. Yes this makes me a man child, and I'm totally okay with that. At least I'm not a bronie.

An open-world New York City in LEGO-form exploring it with Marvel superheroes? That's actually pretty awesome. :-)

GOTG in Lego? I'm in.
DeathstrokeRulez469 - 1/8/2013, 8:16 AM
Sparked my interest. Haven't bought a Lego game since Star Wars.
KeefNCookies - 1/8/2013, 8:19 AM
Did somebody say pre-order..? I'm so glad I have kids or I'd be much more embarrassed about my excitement. Though... maybe I will wait til it drops to 20$. Either way, yay.
SCURVYDOG619 - 1/8/2013, 8:26 AM
Lego Deadpool.

NoAssemblyReqd - 1/8/2013, 9:22 AM
Yahoo! Was playing LEGO LOTR and remarked how fun it would be to get a Marvel game. Ideally, would have liked a takeoff on THE AVENGERS movie, but this original concept is a good start.
DCjohnny - 1/8/2013, 9:42 AM
wow... deadpool is also there.....
GLprime2814 - 1/8/2013, 10:30 AM

DannyDownSouth - 1/8/2013, 10:32 AM

TimL - 1/8/2013, 10:57 AM

silverdog - 1/8/2013, 2:55 PM

Koala0226 - 1/8/2013, 3:38 PM
Lego Batman 2 was a letdown hopefully this doesn't turn out like it did.
Koala0226 - 1/8/2013, 3:41 PM
Hopefully my dad will get this for me and my lil bro.
Deadpool17 - 1/8/2013, 7:38 PM
That's probably an accurate dipicition of what Deadpool would have done during the chitauri invasion. Anarchy looting. Then the voices talk some smack, and Wade starts killing chitauri like its going out of style.
BasedThanos - 1/8/2013, 8:16 PM
A Marvel/DC LEGO game would be so kickass! 100 characters sounds awesome.
@koala really? I thought it was easily the best LEGO game to date.
Luigi - 1/8/2013, 8:36 PM
Awesome, looking forward to it. I thought all of the comments would be complaining about milking this franchise, I'm glad I was wrong.
mgeoff88 - 1/8/2013, 8:55 PM
WOOOOO!!! This is awesome! Ha ha, me and my friend were talking about Marvel doing a Lego game like Lego Batman 2.

I hope they plan to implement online co-op!
ironpool007 - 1/8/2013, 9:19 PM
'll probably grab this for My Wii U. I hope it is open world like Legi City Undercover.
