Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released the Official Announcement Trailer for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, featuring an expanded line-up of iconic Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains from different eras and realities, including Guardians of the Galaxy characters, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax as well as Doctor Strange, Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Man 2099, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, Kang the Conqueror and a whole lot more!
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is an all-new, epic adventure and sequel to the smash hit, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. This original branching storyline, co-written by comic book veteran Kurt Busiek, 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. Packed with signature LEGO humour for fans of all ages, gamers will go head-to-head with the time-travelling Kang the Conqueror through Ancient Egypt, The Old West, Sakaar, New York City in 2099 and many other Marvel settings.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 will be available starting in the UK and Ireland on the 17th of November 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will be released for Nintendo Switch this Christmas.
If I’m being honest I’m disappointed in this announcement trailer for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 as it looks like a lot of the roster from the previous game has been dropped. There doesn’t seem to be any sign of the X-Men who were a major element in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes though it should be noted that both Kang and Galactus (villains who originated from the Fantastic Four) appear once again to do battle with the assembled heroes. Hopefully, when the game releases later this year we’ll have a better understanding of the roster available to players.
