August 21, 2013, 10:13 AM — Fresh off the Interwebs, we have the latest video game trailer for fall's "Lego Marvel Super Heroes" video game, created by the same folks who brought you every other Lego video game (Lord of the Rings, Batman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Harry Potter - have I missed any?). This one features Marvel's cast of heroes and villains, including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Spider-man and many, many more.
This trailer was shown at the Gamescom conference, featuring a look at some of the additional characters and action, as well as a sneak peek at Lego Galactus, who looks very big.
Like the other Lego-based games in this series, I'm all in on this, not just for me, but my 6-year-old, Marvel-and-Lego-obsessed son. It's nice to see something that I can buy that merges two of his major obsessions into one product. The game is set for release on Oct. 22, 2013.
