In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, players take on the role of their favorite Marvel characters like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Thor, Captain America and the Hulk, as they assemble to battle against some of the most menacing Marvel Super Villains, including dastardly Doctor Octopus, the ghastly Green Goblin, the ruthless Red Skull, the vicious Venom, Thor’s vexing brother, Loki, as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus. Players will unlock more than 100 playable characters, including Mystique, Elektra, Mandarin, Silver Samurai, Malekith, Aldrich Killain or Super-Skrull. Players can also choose from a plethora of magnificent bonus hero characters, such as the heroic Guardians of the Galaxy, the Punisher, Captain Britain, Squirrel Girl and Deadpool.
Among the featured characters included in the game is Stan “The Man” Lee himself. Players will be able to rescue him from perilous predicaments and unlock him as a super-powered playable character. And for the first time in a LEGO game, players can clobber and smash bricks harder than ever before with super-sized LEGO big figures like Colossus, Lizard, Juggernaut, Blob, Red Hulk, Iron Man’s Hulkbuster Armor, Rhino, the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing and more.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes offers players a chance to show off their super skills by using weapons such as Captain America’s shield, Thor’s hammer or Hawkeye’s bow to use in combat-like action sequences or epic battle scenes. Players will be introduced to different character super abilities like summoning magic powers as Doctor Strange, shrinking down to miniscule size as Ant-Man or Wasp, and more. Players will also achieve the power of mind control with Professor X or Jean Grey, sharpen their claws as Sabretooth, Black Panther or Beast to dig into the ground to uncover hidden items; and blaze around the city on a motorcycle as Ghost Rider or other speed-demons to complete exciting race challenges.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes features some of the most legendary locations from the Marvel Universe, such as Iron Man’s headquarters Stark Tower, the Daily Bugle, the Fantastic Four’s Baxter Building, and the X-Mansion, home base to the X-Men. Fans can travel to dazzling distant destinations including Thor’s home of Asgard, Doctor Doom’s castle in Latveria, and even Magneto’s Asteroid M to track down the evildoers and save the world! Players can further discover the Marvel Universe with extra exciting escapades set in Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, Kingpin’s treacherous Fisk Tower, Laufey’s lair in Jotunheim and much more.
