EA Announces New Marvel Fighting Game

  At Comic-con 2007, EA has announced that they're currently developing a Marvel Super Heroes fighting game (no relation to the Capcom original) for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. EA Chicago, the studio behind Fight Night and Def Jam ICON is heading up the project, and they promise to bring back the intensity that past Marvel games have given to us in the past.

   “We looked at past comic-based games to find out what was missing and what was needed to successfully translate the intensity, excitement and fiction from comics into fighting games,” said Kudo Tsunoda, General Manager and Vice President, EA Chicago. “We’re challenging ourselves to make a game that delivers on the Super Hero promises of past top-tier fighting games.”

   ”Marvel Super Heroes are a natural fit in the fighting game genre, so we’re excited to have Kudo and his team of fighting game experts put these characters toe-to-toe against each other on next generation consoles,” said Justin Lambros, Vice President of Interactive, Marvel Entertainment. “This is a game that will deliver to both comic book fans and to fighting game diehards.”

   “Featuring a great all-star line-up of Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains with incredible powers that are authentic to the fiction, huge environments and a living world that keeps the gameplay fresh, every battle will be unique; every battle will be like a first edition,” added Tsunoda.

   If that means crazy combos, super fast gameplay, and ridiculous air-time, count me in. But, if it's anything like Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects, we're going to be very upset, EA. Very, very upset.
