In the fall of 2013, the TT Games developed LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was released, and without an ounce of hyperbole, it’s still today one of, if not the, best Marvel Comics video games ever released. Though the LEGO games that have arrived since then, both of the DC and Marvel variety, have made many refinements to the formula – especially when it comes to flight and traversal – none have managed to best LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
From its campaign that manages to weave in nearly every facet of the Marvel Universe to the sheer size of the cast and its hilarious writing, there’s just very little not to enjoy about LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Up until Marvel parent company Disney gobbled up 20th Century Fox and regained the film rights to both the Fantastic Four and X-Men, it looked like this game would also be the last of its kinds where Marvel’s first family could play nice with Wolverine, Spider-Man and the Avengers.
On October 5th, WB Games is providing plenty of incentive to jump back into the world of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes as on that date it arrives on Nintendo Switch. This announcement comes courtesy of the official LEGO Marvel twitter account. Other than the release date, no other news was given as to if any enhancements would be made, meaning this is likely more than a simple port.
There are very few platforms now that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes isn’t available on, but like many Nintendo Switch ports, a perk is that you can play the game on the go. Previously, the only portable option for this title was the Universe in Peril companion game that came to 3DS, Vita and mobile devices. Unlike the consoles game that featured a massive world to explore, Universe in Peril offered little more than bite sized levels with very little to do in them than punch bad guys.
