“Videogame players the world over can now become Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Captain America,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “Captain America: Super Soldier puts players in the boots of the ultimate Super-Soldier, wielding Captain America’s legendary shield. Working closely with Marvel ensures we’re delivering the calibre product that gamers and comic fans deserve and it’s a partnership we’re proud of here at SEGA.”
I for one am extremely excited about this one because the game takes place in WW2 and it’s important to make the most of any opportunity given to beat the living Bejesus out of Nazis.
Players will become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his army in an epic third- person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra’s mysterious castle and battle the infamous Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull. As the First Avenger himself, players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.
So far the screen shots and character work look pretty tight . . . I honestly cannot wait for them to finally bring everyone together in an Avengers game. Of course Multi-player will be a MUST for that one. With me as Captain America and Brother Jobu as Thor; the X-Box Live network would be able to sleep a little better at night.
