SEGA today announced they have signed Captain America star Chris Evans to voice the title role in the upcoming action adventure Captain America: Super Soldier. The actor’s likenesses will also be used in the game, which is based on the seminal and iconic franchise from Marvel Entertainment.
“Signing Chris to star in ‘Captain America: Super Soldier’ delivers the cinematic quality and emotional drive that fans expect,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA of Europe and SEGA of America. “Chris will help fuel the character’s mission as he battles through the enormous Hydra castle full of legendary villains in a completely original story.”
In Captain America: Super Soldier, players become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his Hydra army in an epic third-person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate a mysterious castle overtaken by Hydra forces, where they’ll battle a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull, including the infamous Iron Cross, Baron Strucker and Madame Hydra. Players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.
Captain America: Super Soldier is scheduled for release in 2011 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and Nintendo DS.
IGN also received some new screenshots from the game, which you can check out below.
