I just got back from San Diego Comic Con 2010, and it’s no joke that my feet are tired! Although SEGA did not have its own booth at the show this year, there were some SEGA folks in attendance. The team working on the upcoming Thor game was in the Marvel booth during the con to show off a teaser trailer for the game as well as some concept art from the game.
This is one piece of concept art that we showed, from Muspelheim. Other pieces showed Asgard, Vanaheim, and Niflheim.
The Marvel booth was topped by this huge sign, with Spiderman peering down on the people in the booth.
The can’t-miss centerpiece of the booth was Odin’s throne. This is straight from the movie set! Marcella, the SEGA Brand Manager for the Thor game, is doing a lovely job of showing off the throne. You can see in the photo from IMDB that it’s the same as the throne from the movie, although with fewer stairs. Many people stood in line to get their photos taken on the throne.
Behind the throne was the Destroyer, who was not on display the entire time, but drew intense crowd reaction when it was revealed.
Our friends from Liquid Entertainment, who are developing the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the Thor game, did a couple on-stage demos about how the environments of the game are created — from concept art, to grey block, to textures, and finishing touches. The crowd response was great, and many people came to ask questions and give the concept art a closer look.
We also saw some great Thor cosplayers, including this adorable kid. It wasn’t just kids showing their Thor love, though — we saw someone else in our booth on Sunday giving our concept art a close inspection.
We also had some celebrities in the Marvel booth, including Kenneth Branagh, who is the director of the upcoming Thor movie.
Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, who play Thor and Loki in the upcoming movie, also game to the booth for a signing session.
All in all, it was a fun weekend! Thanks to everyone who came by to meet us and see what we’re up to with the Thor game. We’ll have a lot more in the coming months!
