Marvel already announced that the Secret Wars are returning to the comics, but there is another one coming to mobile devices in the form of Marvel: Contest of Champions.
All of your favorite Marvel superheroes and villains are going to war in this mobile brawler.
In conjunction with the film's August release and the launch of the mobile game, Dan Abnett took some time from his busy schedule to talk with us about writing mobile games, and returning to the characters he helped bring back to prominence at Marvel.
Evo 2014's Killer Instinct and BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma's tournaments have gotten a lot more competitive with these significantly bigger prize pools.
Marvel has finally acknowledged the elephant in the room that always plagued superhero-based licensed games -- the sacrifice of quality for the sake of meeting a theatrical release.
One of the greatest comic book stories ever told, and the basis for the upcoming X-Men film, is going to be a playable game for iOS and Android devices.
Superhero titles are an extremely hit-or-miss area of gaming, with most comic titles performing in the mediocre-or-below range of quality. High Moon Studios, known for the recent Transformers: Cybertron game series, attempt to change things. High Moon has not only created a comic title, but a comic title. Deadpool openly breaks (more like shatters), the fourth wall and acknowledges the expectations and thoughts of gamers in preparation for the debut game of Marvel's anti-antihero. With such a cult-following amongst Marvel fans, the call for a spotlight on Deadpool has been vocal, and High Moon tries to answer with a game written by former Deadpool writer Daniel Way, scripting much of the narrative and dialogue. Is this a Dirty Harry-level of awesome, Deadpool-y badassery, or is it a return of the laughable monstrosity we saw in X-Men Origins: Wolverine? (And yes, that picture you see above is actually from the game.)
