In a shocking turn of events Traveller’s Tales or TT Games from Knutsford England, received aid from its parent company Warner Bros, to secure rights to a new Lego series game.
Titled Lego Marvel Super Heroes, this is a real shock for the company. This is because Warner Bros. owns DC comics the biggest rival of Marvel there is. It’s great for gamers, but incredible to think about actually being able to happen at all. Now that Disney owns Marvel it is especially striking that they allowed TT games rights to make a Marvel based game. Disney and Warner Bros haven’t always played nice.
In related news, Game Informer Magazine is set to have its February issue with special coverage of Lego Marvel Super heroes. The game will be on the cover and will get a special spread within.
So far one of the best tidbits about the game is that for the first time in any LEGO game, you will be able to play a giant sized character. In this case it’s the Incredible Hulk. You will be able to use the big green monster (Not to be confused with that silly oversized wall at Fenway) and crush, smash, and bash to your heart’s desire.
There is a lot to discuss and so much to find out, but as of now TT Games has made it clear, this isn’t an Avengers game nor is it an X Men game. All of the characters from both will be in the game and playable but the story line will be something new and very different.
