Great news for the mini-figures fans! According to Metro News the new Lego Marvel Super Heroes Game will have at least hundred and fifty characters which mean that this game will have the biggest line of minifigs that has even been put in a Video Game.
The game developed by TT Games will be available on retail next November for several platforms such as Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, DS, 3DS, and PS Vita. If you’re particularly curious about which figs will appear, have a look at this huge list of guys, containing the most part of them:
Abomination, Acolytes, Archangel, Arnim Zola, Beast, Black Widow, Blob, Captain America, Captain Britain, Colossus, Cyclops, Daredevil, Deadpool, Destroyer, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, Doctor Strange, Elektra, Extremis Soldier, Frost Giant, Galactus, Gambit, Ghost Rider, Green Goblin, Ultimate Green Goblin, Hawkeye, Classic Hawkeye, Heimdall, H.E.R.B.I.E., Howard the Duck, The Hulk, Bruce Banner, Human Torch, HYDRA Agent, Iceman, Invisible Woman, Iron Man Mark I Armour, Iron Man Mark VI Armour, Iron Man Hulkbuster Armour, Tony Stark, J. Jonah Jameson, Jean Grey, Phoenix, Juggernaut, Kingpin, Leader, Lizard, Curt Connors, Loki, Magneto, Malekith the Accursed, Maria Hill, Mr Fantastic, Ms Marvel, Mysterio, Mystique, Nick Fury, Phil Coulson, Professor Xavier, The Punisher, Red Hulk, General Thunderbolt Ross, Rhino, Rocket Raccoon, Roxxon Guard, Sabretooth, Sandman, Sentinel, Silver Surfer, Silver Samurai, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Squirrel Girl, Stan Lee, Storm, Super-Skrull, The Thing, Thor, Venom, Viper, Vulture, War Machine, and Wolverine.
In terms of main features there is nothing particularly new in this release and from that extended article I would highlight three paragraphs which quickly reflect quite well about that it’s coming up next:
The game’s far from limited to just the Avengers though, with Spider-Man and his allies and rogues being another key inclusion. His web-swinging and web attacks are completely different to any of the other characters and this represents one of the game’s key advances over Lego Batman 2. There’s no longer just a stock collection of half a dozen powers that are attributed to characters as long as they’re vaguely relevant. Now everyone gets their own unique abilities and even if they have the same practical effect they still look very different.
To illustrate this we’re shown The Human Torch flame on and start flying round the room (a test area within a helicarrier) while hurling fireballs. Meanwhile Iceman gets his iconic ice slide, that auto-generates behind him. The Punisher has a variety of guns, and Green Goblin not only has his pumpkin bombs but also his glider.
These special features extend not just to the big hitters but the much more obscure Howard the Duck and even fan favorite Squirrel Girl – who can glide and fire a horde of angry squirrels at her enemies. At this point the demonstration breaks down to people calling out requests and we ask about Captain Britain and whether British developer TT Games have snuck in any specific jokes about him, to which we get some sheepish grins and a nod of the head.
