LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has been announced by Warner Bros. and TT Games for a fall release on 3DS, DS, PC, PS3, Vita, Wii U and Xbox 360.

Furthermore, the game is featured on the February 2013 cover of the next Game Informer. Have a look here.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes offers an original storyline in which Nick Fury calls upon Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes to save Earth from Loki and Galactus, Devourer of the Worlds.

“We’re very excited to bring a myriad of classic Marvel characters to life in LEGO form for some fun, family-friendly gameplay in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes,” said Tom Stone, managing director, TT Games Publishing. “Players will brave the ultimate mission to save the world as they explore famous landmarks in LEGO New York and take the adventure beyond Earth to iconic locations in the Marvel Universe.”

In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, players will unlock more than 100 characters such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Deadpool, Loki and Galactus.

Looks as though Warner had got the superhero market covered what with owning the license to DC Comics, and now a Marvel game in the works.

The game contains various character abilities, combat-like action sequences, battle scenes, puzzle-solving and more.

The game will be released alongside a new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes toy collection.
