Updates from Last Week’s Marvel Event

As you may have seen on our Twitter and Facebook updates, we had a press event last week to show off Thor: God of Thunder and Captain America: Super Soldier. If you want to see all the updates from the event, check out our Twitter hashtag #capandthorevent — it’s got a mix of news about the game and reactions from those who played it.

The big news of the day was that both games will be released on the Nintendo 3DS, and the X360 and PS3 versions of both games will be released in 3D. We did not have 3DS code at the event, but we were showing off the 3D versions of both games, and they looked really great.

One of the cool things at the event was the Captain America shield from the movie! It was set up in a vault, and everyone had a chance to get their photo taken with it. Here’s mine, and I hope to post more SEGA employee photos in the next week or so. Some of them were pretty epic.

But photos and props were not all there was to see — we’ve got screens, character renders, and trailers for each game. I’ve included some below, but there’s more than I can put in one blog, so to see the rest, you can go to the Flickr set for Captain America: Super Soldier and/or Thor: God of Thunder.

OK, on to the pretty stuff.

Press Release

Marvel’s Iconic Super Hero Captain America Will Star in Original WWII Video Game Adventure Captain America: Super Soldier

Penned by Marvel Scribe Christos Gage, Captain America: Super Soldier Lets Players Become Captain America, the Ultimate Super-Soldier, Facing the Red Skull and His Forces

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON – October 5, 2010 – SEGA® of America, Inc and SEGA®, Europe Ltd. today announced they will bring Marvel Entertainment’s famed Super Hero franchise Captain America™ to video game systems in an original WWII adventure, Captain America: Super Soldier. The title is scheduled for release in 2011 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation® Portable) system, Wii™ and Nintendo DS™.

“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.”

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.

Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls. Players will be able to launch shield-first into the fray with the superior force of the world’s first Super-Soldier at their fingertips—and they’ll need every bit of that strength to overcome a castle that’s both an acrobatic playground for the Captain’s physical prowess and a house of mystery with enemies and danger at every turn.

The original story for Captain America: Super Soldier is being penned by noted comic, film, and TV writer Christos Gage. The primary writer for the Marvel’s Avengers: The Initiative series of comics, Gage has written numerous books for major Marvel characters, including Siege: Captain America, Iron Man, X-Men, Spider-Man, Civil War: House of M, and Union Jack.

Gage wrote his original story for Captain America: Super Soldier so that the setting exists within the same world as the upcoming movie of the same name, but he infused the game with immersive twists designed to enhance gameplay with all-new cinematic action sequences.

The preeminent Super Hero introduced during the WWII era, Captain America was created by the legendary team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941. The iconic hero actually predates the Marvel name by 20 years, first being issued by the company’s predecessor, Timely Publications (later known as Atlas Comics). Over 200 million Captain America issues have been sold in 75 countries and the shield-wielding hero is a key member of the Avengers alongside comic book icons The Hulk™, Iron Man™, and Thor™ starting in The Avengers #4 in 1964.
