Marvel Super Hero Squad series heads to Nintendo 3DS and uDraw GameTablet
THQ have today announced that they are to release two new titles under the Marvel Super Hero Squad brand – Comic Combat set for the uDraw GameTablet, and The Infinity Gauntlet for Nintendo 3DS.
Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat will see players able to use the uDraw stylus to command Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and serveral other Marvel Super Heroes as they battle against Doctor Doom and his evil cohorts. You can look forward to a distinctive cel-shaded comic book art style that brings the world to life, and full utilisation of the uDraw GameTablet with which you’ll be able to direct attacks, wield weapons and build barricades – players can even shake the peripheral to create an in-game earthquake!
“The uDraw GameTablet gives players the ability to direct and control their favorite super heroes in a completely new way,” comments Executive Producer Peter Armstrong. “As the comic artist you are able to command each hero and utilize their unique abilities for the first time ever using the power of the pen.”
Alongside this, Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet for Nintendo 3DS will provide an entirely different experience utilising the glasses-free stereoscopic 3D capabilities of the handheld. Fans of the original game will also be able to look forward to four new recruits: Captain America, Nova, Black Widow and She-Hulk.
Within the game, players must tap into their super powers as they set out to stop Doctor Doom’s Lethal Legion, securing the six infinity stones and preventing the impending apocalypse. You’ll step into the shoes of 12 playable heroes, as well as enjoying two additional levels in which you’ll be able to play as Dr. Doom, Magneto, Loki and Abomination for the first time ever.
Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat is scheduled to release on November 15th on uDraw GameTablet across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii platforms. Whereas Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet will release earlier on October 11th for Nintendo 3DS.
