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.

Thor Teaser Trailer

If you were at San Diego Comic Con,  you may have seen this teaser trailer in our section of the Marvel booth. Re-live that memory, or see it for the first time, below.

San Diego Comic Con 2010

Thor The Video Game Logo

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.

Surtur Forge

This is one piece of concept art that we showed, from Muspelheim. Other pieces showed Asgard, Vanaheim, and Niflheim.

Marvel

The Marvel booth was topped by this huge sign, with Spiderman peering down on the people in the booth.

Marcella on Odin's Throne

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.

The Destroyer

Behind the throne was the Destroyer, who was not on display the entire time, but drew intense crowd reaction when it was revealed.

Game Environment Demo

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.

Lil' Thor

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.

Thor Cosplayer

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.

Thor Signing

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!
