Inhuman Royal Family is a Deep Marvel Reference
So Disney owns Marvel. LEGO is a successful building block toy company that seems to follow Disney’s IPs around and make models out of them. LEGO also has a video game line and movie line that seems to follow Disney’s IPs around. So when I hear LEGO Marvel, I think of a chintzy on-the-surface game that’s fun and features all the characters from the movie, and that’s it. Today I am proven wrong as LEGO announces the spotlight on the Inhuman Royal Family for the upcoming trailer.
They even got freaking Lockjaw, the dog that swallowed a Power Gem in an alternate reality. They’ve got Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Karnak, Gorgon, Maximus the Mad, all in their home base of Attilan. From the publisher, this is one of many worlds you can visit in the game. Meaning there’s much, much more:
“LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is an all-new, epic adventure and sequel to the smash hit, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. This original branching storyline, co-written by award-winning comics writer Kurt Busiek, transports players into a cosmic battle across a myriad of Marvel locations ripped from time and space into the incredible Open Hub World of Chronopolis. Packed with signature LEGO humor for fans of all ages, gamers will go head-to-head with the time-travelling Kang the Conqueror in this fun-filled journey spanning the Marvel Universe.”
We’re going to battle freaking Kang. This is the deepest-set Marvel universe I have ever seen, and it’s…LEGOs.
Also look at this dumb dog.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 will be available starting November 14th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
