With Inhumans set to hit our screens this month, Marvel Games will be having plenty of cross synergy with the new show as the Inhumans join Marvel Heroes Omega, Puzzle Quest, Contest Of Champions, Avengers Academy and the upcoming Powers United VR.
First up, “Marvel Contest of Champions” will see Medusa join in the Collector’s contest where she joins Black Bolt and her cousin Karnak as the Inhuman representatives on Battlerealm. Players will also get to play an Inhuman-centric event pitting the chosen of Attilan against the Iso-8 Mafia.
“The Inhumans are one of my favorite Marvel families, because they have always been so weird,” exclaimed Gabe Frizzera, Art Director at Kabam. “The unapologetic ‘Kirbyness’ of the stories, with the lofty themes of alien gods experimenting with the fates of early humans, was one of my first tastes of sci-fi as a kid. I love every time we have a chance to bring an Inhuman to the Contest of Champions, especially Royals. I think they fit beautifully in our particular brand of Marvel cosmic extravaganza.” We couldn’t agree more.
While “Marvel Avengers Academy” will see an entire event on players involving the Attilan Academy with a whole host of Inhuman characters joining the game’s roster including Medusa, Black Bolt, Crystal, and Triton.
“It seems like we’ve been waiting forever to introduce the Inhumans royal family to ‘Marvel Avengers Academy,’ shared Allen Warner, Director of Narrative at Tinyco. “We’re so excited that the time has finally come. It’s an awesome opportunity to embrace their inherent potential for comedy and otherworldly weirdness, which have always been big parts of our game, as well as reimagining what all of them would be like as school-aged students from Atillan Academy. I can’t wait for the world to see what our awesome artists have done with Lockjaw’s designs in particular. Hint: He looks even more amazing in a Black Bolt themed dog sweater!”
In Marvel Puzzle Quest, Lockjaw joins Black Bolt and Medusa in early September. “Lockjaw will be our first playable dog character in Marvel Puzzle Quest!” revealed Josh Austin, Senior Producer at D3 Go! “With his Royal Escort ability, not only does he call in the many Inhumans we have in the game including Kamala Khan, Black Bolt, Medusa and Quake, but he also brings in two additional Inhumans: Crystal and Karnak!”
In Marvel Heroes Omega, the console version will be getting Black Bolt as a playable character, with a costume inspired by his small screen look. There will also be a new Inhumans event which introduces a new big boss and new items.
“With Black Bolt, we introduce players to one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel cannon,” said Anthony Gallegos, Designer at Gazillion. “With a voice that can destroy anything just by whispering, as well as an array of energy powers, super-human speed, and more, we can’t wait for players to try the king of the Inhumans for themselves. Black Bolt’s silence is only a reminder of his power and restraint — prepare to be awed when he decides to grace (or destroy) your very essence by daring to speak a word.”
It has also been confirmed that Black Bolt and Crystal will be in “Marvel Powers United VR”, check out the trailer below:
“Having the opportunity to bring Black Bolt and Crystal into the game has been an exciting design and technical adventure,” admitted Mat Kraemer, Creative Director at Sanzaru Games. “They’ve become favorites with our team to throw down and kick some bad guy butt! We can’t wait to see what fans think when they wield Inhumans powers and jump into the fight!”
