LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Game Updates

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes DLC

We have two updates to bring you regarding LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. The first update isn’t quite “new” since it was announced sometime ago, but the first DLC pack has been revealed. BrickHereos has uncovered an image showing you three of the DLC characters: Hawkeye Classic, Symbiote Suit Spider-man, and I have no idea who the gun wielder is. Maybe Ken knows. See the image above for what you’ll be getting. A cursory search shows that the DLC pack is available from EBGames Australia so far as a pre-order bonus along with Iron Patriot. Lucky Australians!

The second piece of news comes via IGN. It’s a preview article of the game that gives details on how you can unlock the Stan Lee character:

Stan Lee’s groupies, for example, won’t be able to unlock the comic book icon by simply sticking to the critical path. As Parsons explains, recruiting Spidey’s co-creator into your roster is one of the title’s most involved tasks. “We have 50 Stan Lee’s in various perilous situations. In one of them he drinks this toxic soda and transforms into Stan Hulk, and you end up having to beat him up; when you beat him up, he transforms back to Stan and he’s like ‘Excelsior, thank you!’, and off he runs. Once you’ve rescued all 50, you then get to unlock Stan as a playable character.”

Sure it sounds easy, but I’m guessing the other 49 missions vary in degrees of difficulty and may require replaying the game to use unlocked characters.

There are some other details on some of the story elements and how the characters’ traits influenced some of the gameplay.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes releases next month on all major consoles. A few pre-order options are up on the right column there under Iron Patriot.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Confirmed for Next Gen Systems

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Box Art

News comes out today from Electronic Theatre confirming that the upcoming LEGO Super Heroes game is headed for next generation gaming consoles. If you’ve pre-ordered your Xbox One or PS4 and wanted to play this game on those systems, you’re in luck. Also, the picture above is what the box art is going to be for the game for all systems.

We have links to the Walmart pre-order pages on the upper right hand side of this page. The links go to Xbox 360, PS3 and WiiU versions of the game. You’ll get Iron Patriot if you pre-order it. I just checked their site and they don’t have pages up yet for the Xbox One or PS4 version but I’ll update that as soon as they do, assuming the pre-order bonus is still valid.

The game features over 100 playable characters and will be released later this year.

Walmart Now Lists Iron Patriot Pre-order Bonus

Iron Patriot

Walmart.com has updated their pre-order pages for the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game. The listings now show Iron Patriot as a pre-order bonus. You must order a console version of the game in order to get the figure so Nintendo DS and 3DS fans are out of luck. Xbox 360 ($49.96), PS3 ($49.96), and Wii U ($49.96) games qualify. Walmart lists the ship date as 12/31/2013, but everywhere else lists 10/31/2013 so I’m unsure when you can actually expect to get your minifig plus video game accessory.
