News: EA reveals the first details of its long talked about Marvel Vs EA fighting game.
EA has finally revealed some details about the Marvel Vs EA fighting game that was first talked about almost a year ago. The game will be coming to the PS2, Xbox, GameCube and PSP this fall under the title Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects.
Marvel Nemesis will feature twelve fighters, six from Marvel's stable of superheroes and six from EA's newly created supervillain team. Spider-Man, Wolverine, The Thing and Elektra are among some of the Marvel heroes. The EA team will be led by the alien mad scientist Niles Van Roekel, who is attempting to create a superteam of "vicious warriors." These vicious warriors will be introduced in a six issue comic mini-series entitled Marvel Nemesis: The Imperfects, which will launch in May.
In light of EA's recent business tactics, does anyone think it's odd they are painting themselves as the supervillain team in this game?
Leading Marvel's design team to create the EA warriors is Jae Lee and Paul Catling. Lee is an illustrator on Spider-Man, X-Factor and Uncanny X-Men and Catling is best known for concept artwork on movies like Spider-Man 2, AVP: Alien Vs. Predator, The Punisher, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
Ames Kirshen, Director Of Video Game Development at Marvel Enterprises, added, "We are thrilled to be working with EA and collaborating with some of the top talents in both the videogame and comic book industries in creating this groundbreaking comic series and innovative fighting game franchise."
