DeNA and Marvel Entertainment’s previously-announced co-op mobile title Marvel Mighty Heroes has officially debuted on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and on Google Play for Android devices. You can check out the launch trailer for the game in the player below.
In Marvel Mighty Heroes, players must defend the world by assembling a dream team of Marvel Super Heroes, including Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, Captain America, Star-Lord, Hulk, Hawkeye as well as dozens of Super Villains yet to be announced. Each character is equipped with a unique set of powerful, upgradeable abilities along with alternate costumes that grant new powers and allow for a variety of different play styles based around speed, strength, and health.
“Marvel Mighty Heroes starts with old-school Super Hero gameplay from the glory days of playing alongside friends at the arcade and adds a modern twist for mobile devices through intuitive touch controls and global cooperative gameplay,” said Barry Dorf, Vice President of Partnerships and Alliances at DeNA. “Marvel fans of all ages will love the timeless characters and evolving Marvel storylines based on classic plots and new story arcs.”
Once players choose their squad, they will join a team of up to four players from around the world to compete in missions testing their clobbering prowess with bruiser characters and quick reflexes with ranged characters, while leaderboards let players compete for worldwide supremacy. Multiplayer events include a variety of missions like cooperative defense and intense boss battles. Regular updates will consistently add original content, letting players fight their way through all-new worlds and storylines never before explored in a Marvel game. Today kicks off the first event in the six-part weekly “Infinity” series which finds the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy teaming up to battle Thanos the Mad Titan.
Marvel Mighty Heroes is available to download for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Android devices for free.
