Marvel Avengers Academy mobile game announced

Posted on

Marvel/TinyCo

Heroes have to hone their skills somewhere, and Marvel Avengers Academy will allow you to craft your own facility to train the superheroes of tomorrow.

Marvel and TinyCo have announced that Avengers Academy is in development for iOS and Android platforms. The game will allow players to unlock school-aged versions of famous Marvel heroes that can be customized as players guide them along their own stories. Academy will let players flesh out a super hero campus with different facilities while facing the greatest trials of their lives (since they haven’t been out saving the world for years). Heroes will deal with such challenges as campus cliques, Aademy dating life, and actual combat training sessions.

“Whether its visiting Stark Tower or going on a date with Loki, players will soon be debating what’s the coolest experience of Marvel Avengers Academy,” Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Rosemann said in a statement about the game. Yes, you can date Loki, if your heart so desires to try to impress the trickster god with a night out on the town.

Avengers Academy is set for a first-quarter 2016 release and will be free to initially download with in-app purchases. Check out the debut trailer above and some character artwork below.
