What happens when you take a decent size of Marvel super heroes and shrink them down to a cute, chibi-esque crime-fighting group? You get Marvel Super Hero Squad — a concoction of well-known super heroes minified, in a minfied world, taking on minified villains.
THQ recently announced that Marvel Super Hero Squad will be hitting store shelves this fall. Two new titles will be available for your choosing. Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat (November 15), which will be available on uDraw Game Tablet for the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360, will allow players, for the first time ever, to use the uDraw stylus to direct their cel-shaded favorite Marvel super heroes like Captain American, Iron Man, and Hulk, against the malevolent Doctor Doom and his evil accomplices. Players will be able to use the Game Table to direct attacks, build barricades, create in-game earthquakes, and handful of other thingies that will allow use of the stylus.But, if you prefer to experience these dwarfed super heroes on a handheld, the 3DS will be also receiving its own special Marvel Super Hero Squad treatment. Available October 11th, The Infinity Gauntlet will treat players to a 3-D experience where they will — get ready — take on Doctor Doom’s Lethal Legion. Gasp! Boasting a hefty 12 playable heroes, The Infinity Gauntlet also features two new levels in which players can take on the roles of Doctor Doom, Magneto, Loki, and Abomination, and wreck havoc.
Now, I’m all for beating the crap out of villains… or even heroes, in the case of The Infinity Gauntlet. It gives me a reason to use the uDraw, which I am getting, by the way. Why, you might ask? Welp, for one, it’s a tablet I can use to hone my artistic abilities — it’s far cheaper than a Wacom tablet, that’s for sure. And, secondly, why wouldn’t I want to pummel Doctor Doom and his team of insolent followers? Two obvious good reasons there, ladies and gentlemen.
