Square Enix announces new Avengers game
The hashtag is #Reassemble, but is that the title of the new Avengers video game being put together by Square Enix?
The developer behind Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts
has announced it is making the first in a series of new games involving heroes from the Marvel Comics universe. The Avengers project was announced with an ominous new video, featuring discarded or destroyed imagery from Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor.
“Assemble!” has been the rallying cry of these heroes for ages, but reassemble? The premise raises an immediate question — from what catastrophe are they rebuilding?
Little else was confirmed about the new game. We don’t even know a full title or what style of gameplay it will feature.
But Square Enix is assembling its own powerhouse team to pull it together — Crystal Dynamics, which is best known for Tomb Raider, and Eidos Montreal, which crafts the Deus Ex games.
For now, fans have only been teased, and we remain in a holding pattern for more information.
