The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has issued a rating for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes on Nintendo Switch, suggesting that classic brick-built action-adventure game is coming to the portable home console.

It was previously released for Wii U in October 2013, with a separately developed handheld version – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril – later coming to Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS in February 2014.

“This is an action-adventure game in which players control Lego-versions of Marvel superheroes (e.g., Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-man) as they attempt to stop evil villains from destroying the world,” the ESRB rating reads.

“Players traverse different environments and use punches, kicks, and an assortment of weapons (e.g., shields, firearms, hammers) and special abilities (e.g., fire blasts, lightning strikes) to defeat villains and their henchmen.

“In a handful of sequences, players can mount Lego turrets and blast projectiles (e.g., water and flames) at large enemy bosses and villains. The frenetic combat is accompanied by cries of pain, screen-shaking effects, and impact sounds. Enemies burst into Lego pieces when defeated.”

It is unclear whether this will be a standalone release or if Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is looking to port the LEGO Marvel Collection to Nintendo Switch. The three-in-one compilation comes packed with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 – the last game of which has already been released on the portable home console.
