Marvel and Square Enix formed a partnership to develop video games based on Marvel characters. The first game is titled, The Avengers, and Crystal Dymanics (Tomb Raider franchise) will head up development, in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal (Hitman series).

"By partnering with Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal, we are now working with two of the industry’s most talented and respected game development studios to bring Marvel stories to life in ways our fans have never experienced,“ said Jay Ong, Senior Vice President, Games & Innovation, Marvel Entertainment. “The Avengers project is a perfect example of how Marvel is making games a key part of the landscape for Marvel storytelling, alongside comics, television and film. We can only do this by matching our greatest Super Heroes with the world’s top developers, such as the creative minds at Square Enix.” 

As you'll see in the trailer below, the Avengers Project includes icon characters like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and is voiced by Scarlett Johansson who played Natasha Romanoff and the Black Widow in the latest films. The video games will aim to represent an authentic Avengers universe, and will be a multi-year, multi-game partnership between Marvel and Square Enix.

“Marvel’s diverse, innovative universe has created millions of longtime fans, including all of us,” said Phil Rogers, CEO, Square Enix Americas and Europe. “It’s exciting to bring together Square Enix’s award-winning development studios with Marvel’s extraordinary storytellers to establish a new entertainment powerhouse.  This collaboration of passion and talent will craft epic, imaginative experiences allowing gamers to live out their Super Hero dreams like never before.
