New Marvel Fighting Game Coming from EA
Marvel: Ryno on 2007-09-08

At Comic-con 2007, Electronic Arts Inc announced that EA Chicago will develop a brand new Super Hero fighting game franchise using the Marvel license. The acclaimed studio is recognized for specializing in the fighting game genre. Launching on the PLAYSTATION 3 and the Xbox 360, EA Chicago's Marvel fighting game will be released in 2008.

EA Chicago, the leading development team on top fighting franchises including EA SPORTS Fight Night series and DEF JAM: ICON, is using their talent and expertise to take on an elusive game development challenge – to deliver an authentic Super Hero fighting experience that has been promised for years but never truly been delivered.

"We looked at past comic-based games to find out what was missing and what was needed to successfully translate the intensity, excitement and fiction from comics into fighting games," said Kudo Tsunoda, General Manager and Vice President, EA Chicago. "We're challenging ourselves to make a game that delivers on the Super Hero promises of past top-tier fighting games."

"Marvel Super Heroes are a natural fit in the fighting game genre, so we're excited to have Kudo and his team of fighting game experts put these characters toe-to-toe against each other on next generation consoles," said Justin Lambros, Vice President of Interactive, Marvel Entertainment. "This is a game that will deliver to both comic book fans and to fighting game diehards."

"Featuring a great all-star line-up of Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains with incredible powers that are authentic to the fiction, huge environments and a living world that keeps the gameplay fresh, every battle will be unique; every battle will be like a first edition," added Tsunoda.

Spike TV's Game Head provided fans with the first look at EA's upcoming Marvel fighting game. Check out a trio of videos highlighting gameplay, CGI and behind-the-scenes awesomeness as well as early details from EA at Marvel.com Click Here for the full article with video.
