Square Enix and Marvel Announce New Multi-Game Partnership

Here’s some unexpected but fantastic news: Square Enix have announced a partnership with the comic book and movie publishing Juggernaut (geddit?) to create multiple games, starting with an Avengers game.

In a new teaser trailer, we can see the iconic items associated with each member of the Avengers: Banner’s glasses, Iron Man’s armour, Thor’s Hammer and Captain America’s shield. Unfortunately, the items are looking a little bit worse for wear, and the Avengers themselves are conspicuous by their absence.

The woman doing the voiceover continues the glum outlook, stating that the “time of heroes is over”, but we just need to “reassemble”. If we had to speculate, we’d guess that this Avengers project takes place after a “Civil War”-esque scenario, where the world sees the superhero community as a menace and the Avengers themselves have splintered.

Still, we’re not going to be finding out for a while, as this Avengers release is only slated to release in 2018. It wouldn’t be a surprise if it launched around the same time as Infinity War, but that’s just speculation on our behalf. Are you excited to see the Marvel Universe make bigger advances into the gaming industry? Let us know in the comments, and check out the trailer below!
