Eich! Mein jawbone!
Just when you thought WWII games were on sabbatical, think again. Of course Captain America: Super Soldier is not your typical WWII game. Captain America was specifically created to battle Nazis, and Super Soldier is a third-person adventure in which he gets to face his archenemy, Red Skull.
“Videogame players the world over can now become Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Captain America,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “Captain America: Super Soldier puts players in the boots of the ultimate Super-Soldier, wielding Captain America’s legendary shield. Working closely with Marvel ensures we’re delivering the calibre product that gamers and comic fans deserve and it’s a partnership we’re proud of here at SEGA.”
Similarly to the gameplay of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Captain America must infiltrate Hydra’s castle where a host of enemies and acrobatic platforming await him. Of course his famous shield will be used extensively for the free flowing combat. He’ll be able to take out multiple enemies, deflect gunfire, solve puzzles, and scale walls. The castle will serve as an acrobatic playground for Cap’s physical prowess (peak of human ability thanks to steroids the Super Soldier Serum and Vita-Rays) as well as a base of operations for the Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and Red Skull’s minions.
Captain America: Super Soldier is set for release in 2011 on the PS3, the Xbox 360, the Wii, the PSP, and the DS. It will coincide with the film Captain America: The First Avenger, starring that guy who played the Human Torch in the underrated Fantastic Four movies.
