Young Justice is set to conquer the video game arena as well as it debuts in a multiplayer action RPG.
Worldwide game publisher Little Orbits signed a deal with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to develop Young Justice: Legacy video game for PS3, xBox 360, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS. It is set to sail out some time in early 2013.
Young Justice includes teen heroes Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis who will be delegated as covert operations team. Like their seniors, they are imbibed with superior skills and armaments to fight against evil villains in the DC universe to prove themselves as worthy heroes. The new season of Young Justice Series will air on Saturday, March 3, at 10:30 am over Cartoon network.
“The TV series is a fantastic combination of compelling writing, witty humor, iconic art, and exciting action sequences. The creators have done an amazing job blending over 180 DC Comics characters into their show filtered through a new, youthful perspective,” said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit. “The new video game contains a slew of cool features and a large playable cast of familiar heroes, but our core mission is to create a unique experience that fits seamlessly into the world of the show and offers a new way to interact with these popular DC Comics characters.”
Legacy aficionados can expect the game to follow the original story line which takes the scenes amidst seasons 1 and 2. The game has a lot of playable fan favorite characters included therein, as well as cameo appearances by Justice League heroes and villains in online multiplayer and local multiplayer modes. The game was written in collaboration with show writers Greg Welsman and Brandon Vietti.
