After our previous post regarding Traveller’s Tales and WB Games’ announcement of the long awaited sequel, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, retail giants Best Buy and Amazon has now listed the highly anticipated video game for pre-order. Best Buy has also released the official images of the game’s box art across all major consoles, including the Nintendo Switch as you can see below.
The box art teases a variety of Marvel super heroes both from their MCU iterations and comic book counterparts. We see the Black Panther stalking in the background, GOTG’s Rocket and Baby Groot (earlier seen in the game’s teaser video), the mystically imbued Captain Marvel and MCU’s Doctor Strange, Gladiator Hulk as he is seen in Thor: Ragnarok, alongside with Cowboy Captain America, and our friendly neighborhood wall crawlers Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Man 2099 straight from the comics. The box art also hints at the game’s overarching nemesis, the infamous Kang the Conqueror, whose image you can see in the background. Here’s the press release courtesy of Business Wire, and stay tuned for the game’s full trailer on May 23. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is slated to be released on November 14, 2017.
