We already know that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 promises to be the real deal on Nintendo Switch, with all DLC and extras to be included. With that in mind we can perhaps allow ourselves to get quite excited for the November 14th / 17th (depending on region) release, as LEGO games can - when done well - be a treat.
For those eager to see more it's worth checking out the story trailer below, which showcases a lot of the usual LEGO zaniness.
Recently debuted at New York Comic Con (NYCC), the video stars lovable canine, Cosmo the Spacedog – telepathic Soviet cosmonaut, Knowhere’s chief of security and ally to the Guardians of the Galaxy – who is tasked with alerting and assembling an elite team of Super Heroes to take on the time-travelling Super Villain, Kang the Conqueror. Kang has stolen numerous Marvel cities and locations from across time and space to form the expansive Open Hub World of Chronopolis, in hopes to take over the universe. As a result, Cosmo’s call to action brings together a diverse group of Marvel Super Heroes from different time periods and realities – including Star-Lord, Thor, Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Hulk, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Rocket Raccoon, Iron Man, Cowboy Captain America, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Groot and many more – who must all band together to foil Kang’s diabolical plans.
