Marvel and TinyCo have released a really fun trailer for the forthcoming iOS game MARVEL Avengers Academy. In the newly released character video fans get to see how the young Avengers-in-training will look in the game, as we see characters such as the young Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, and Iron Man all posing for their Academy Yearbook photos.
All of these super heroes and many more will be available to play and interact with in MARVEL Avengers Academy, each with their own backstory that will be revealed the more you play of the game. Other notable characters include Wasp, Hawkeye, Loki, Ultron, and Nick Fury, the Dean of Students trying to keep a lid on everything.
“Marvel’s Avengers is an amazing franchise with near endless possibilities,” stated Andrew N. Green, Head of Business Operations at TinyCo. “We are excited to work closely with the team at Marvel Games on MARVEL Avengers Academy to offer a truly unique experience that will allow a broad range of players to interact with the iconic characters and universe in ways never before seen in gaming!”
“Whether its visiting Stark Tower or going on a date with Loki, players will soon be debating what’s the coolest experience of MARVEL Avengers Academy, but for this lifelong fan, it’s seeing world-famous Super Heroes like Captain America, Black Widow and Iron Man reimagined into charmingly fresh but instantly recognizable young adult forms,” said Bill Rosemann, Marvel Games Creative Director. “And here’s the extra twist: There’s a mystery for you to uncover—a shocking truth that lies beneath the very campus you’re exploring. You see, these are the real deal Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (and Villains), complete with their distinct personalities, powers and personal struggles that we’ve all grown to know and love. What has transformed them into students, and what chain of events have assembled them at the ultimate superhuman university? Class is in session…do you have what it takes to become an Avenger?”
MARVEL Avengers Academy will be released in Q1 2016 and will be free to download.
