EA has finally blown the lid on the first videogame to come from its previously announced collaboration with Marvel. As heavily rumoured, the game is tied in with the Marvel Nemesis: The Imperfects comic book mini series and is a superhero fighting effort called Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects. Oh, and it's unleashing a blitz of punches, kicks and super powers on PS2, Xbox, GameCube and PSP.
Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects boasts over a dozen fighters who will be pummelling each other into oblivion in fully interactive and destructible environments, the contenders a combination of EA-created super heroes and classic Marvel characters.
As you would expect, each EA fighter comes with their own unique attributes and super powers that complement their background, this "adding more depth and fighting strategy to the game," says EA.
Although there's few details so far, we suspect Franchise Man, Expansion Girl and Offically Licensed Boy are almost dead certs and have already been inked in. Ahem.
For the comic book fanatics out there, six-issue mini-series Marvel Nemesis: The Imperfects finds the likes of Spider-Man, Wolverine, The Thing and Elektra clash with EA's Niles Van Roekel, "an evil alien scientist out to create a super army of vicious warriors". The series kicks off in May and the EA-designed heroes featuring in the videogame will be revealed in the comic book series every month up to the launch of the title.
Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects is being developed by Nihilistic Software and is due this autumn.
