Today DeNA and Marvel Entertainment sent out a press release stating that a real-time co-op brawler starring Superheroes and Super Villains from the Marvel Universe is currently in development for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android devices. This title, known as Marvel Mighty Heroes, will feature real-time cooperative gameplay with up to four players, thus bringing strategic Superhero action to mobile devices. Interested gamers can pre-register by visiting the official website and even vote for a free special hero at launch (for a limited time), namely either Hulk or Rocket Raccoon.
The game will allow players to choose their favorite Marvel comic book characters, such as Iron Man, Groot, Thor, Star-Lord, Captain America, and dozens of other heroes and villains. You will build a dream-team of Superheroes and Super Villains, with each utilizing different skills and abilities to clobber, shoot, smash, and blast their way to victory.
Barry Dorf, Vice President of Partnerships and Alliances at DeNA, stated, “Building off of the success of Marvel War of Heroes, our first Marvel-licensed title, Marvel Mighty Heroes is a fast and tactical battle game that will combine evolving Marvel stories with enthralling co-op and competitive multiplayer gameplay. Marvel fans and gamers alike will have the chance to create the ultimate team of Super Heroes and Super Villains to take on waves of enemies from the Marvel Universe.”
Marvel Mighty Heroes will be available as a free download on mobile devices later this year.
