In news that should really surprise no-one, Marvel is teasing the announcement of yet another
In a brief teaser trailer shared on Twitter, we see Marvel hero America Chavez – fresh in the minds of Marvel Cinematic Universe fans after her debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – bursting onto the scene and fighting Doombots, accompanied by characters like Venom and Ironheart. This is followed up by the phrase ‘Oh Snap’, and a slew of character logos, both popular and obscure.
Given the involvement of Nuverse, we can probably safely assume it’s going to be a mobile game, and likely free-to-play. Marvel and Disney properties have seen incredible success in the mobile game space with titles like Marvel Contest of Champions, Marvel Future Revolution, Marvel Strike Force, and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes.
The real question will be what kind of genre or systems it’ll involve – the RPG and real-time combat categories have been covered pretty well already. With the involvement of Ben Brode and his pedigree, there’s a high chance it could be some kind card-based game.
Of course, there are plenty more Marvel and DC games coming to consoles, including Marvel’s Midnight Suns, a supernatural turn-based tactics game from Firaxis Games, the developers of XCOM. Insomniac Games is also working on a sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man, as well as a game based on Wolverine. Both games will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5.
We’ll know more about this new Marvel game when it’s officially revealed on 19 May, 10am PST | 20 May, 3am AEST.
