As beforehand introduced, Amy Hennig’s sport for Marvel was proven throughout this night’s Disney video games showcase. As was leaked, it is about Captain America and Black Panther working to combat in opposition to Hydra throughout World Struggle 2. What I did not count on in any respect was that the sport nonetheless would not have a reputation, though there are just a few different particulars to glean from probably the most teasery teaser trailer.
“Once we talked to Marvel initially, we wished to inform an unique story, and never really feel like we have been cribbing from one thing that already existed, though taking inspiration from all types of sources,” mentioned Amy Hennig in a post-stream interview with IGN. “We liked the thought of doing a team-up, within the basic Marvel sense the place you are taking characters who have not essentially been in a narrative collectively, after which additionally to set the story in a time that might be sudden.”
Enter Captain America, Black Panther and the World Struggle 2 time interval. One factor that the leaks did not point out was that the sport is ready throughout each Paris and Black Panther’s kingdom of Wakanda. The tagline for the sport, seen within the trailer above, additionally mentions “4 heroes”, two of which aren’t tremendous. That does not imply it is a co-op sport, says Hennig, though you may be co-operating “narratively” quite than within the gameplay sense, she mentioned.
Whereas it is nonetheless seemingly early days for Hennig’s Marvel sport, it isn’t her solely mission. She’s additionally engaged on a brand new Star Wars sport at Skydance, after a earlier try on the galaxy far, distant was cancelled.
