Subsequent week, Sq. Enix is placing out one other Marvel sport, this one for the Guardians of the Galaxy. Whereas it appears like a typical third-person motion sport the place you management Star-Lord and command the opposite Guardians, there may be one factor that warrants a particular shoutout for the way shocking it’s.
Like each large superhero sport, Guardians has round 40 in-game costumes that you will discover all through the sport. Some are unique designs, however most are pulled from the comics and movies. IGN’s acquired a video highlighting those they managed to seek out throughout a latest preview, they usually look fairly cool! The film skins look good, and even costumes from the older comics appear to carry up pretty nicely. (Rocket in a swimsuit and glasses from his quite glorious 2017 solo guide appears superior.) It’s fairly enjoyable to see Drax from the films do a combo with Groot in his pores and skin from the 2015 “Black Vortex” comedian occasion.
What’s attention-grabbing is that on the backside of every description, not solely do the costumes pulled from the comics spotlight the comedian the place it first confirmed up, plus the author and artist, in addition they spotlight the lesser identified of us behind the comics: the editors, cowl artists, and even colorists. A small factor, certain, however it’s vital at a time when creators for the Large Two aren’t being correctly compensated the way in which they need to be. And to this point, it’s the one sport to be doing this: Insomniac’s two Spider-Man video games don’t reference creators in any of their costumes, and ditto the Avengers sport.
Does it make the sport an computerized hit, clearly not. However hey, isn’t it good of them to try this as an alternative of simply offering an in-game description after which simply stopping there, as many latest superhero video games are inclined to do?
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy releases subsequent week on October 26 for PlayStation, Xbox, Change, and PC.
