Traveller’s Tales’ LEGO games are some of the most fun I’ve had in a long time. The titles capture a pure essence of fun that many games have abandoned as they relentlessly march towards boring realism. The latest LEGO game from the studio – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – gets its first game trailer today… kind of.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the cover story on this month’s Game Informer, and as such, the game will be receiving plenty of coverage over the course of the month. This may be the first LEGO game to be on the cover, and for good reason, there’s a lot of hope riding on this one. Marvel is huge today thanks to The Avengers film and a LEGO game based on the Marvel universe must be just as epic. Is Traveller’s Tales up to the task? The latest trailer can answer that question:
I’m a huge fan of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes seems to be capturing that same kind of magic. I’ve never been a huge Marvel fan, but I can’t not play this one. It’s just so charming to see The Avengers in LEGO minifig form, including Hulk.
Now the only question that remains is whether or not a game intended for children can capture the essence of Deadpool. If not, we at least still have High Moon’s gory and hilarious Deadpool game coming out later this year.
