As a little pre-Christmas treat, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers handheld Game Director, Steve Thornton, has revealed the first screenshots of the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita version of the game. Long term readers will know I like to push the handheld versions of the big LEGO Videogames as they almost always get overlooked in favour of their bigger home console counterparts. They may be running on a smaller system but they offer a fun and varied type of play experience that’s definitely worth playing alongside the console versions. Along with the first screenshots, Steve has also provided a blog post over on the community section of LEGO.com. Both the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita versions of LEGO Marvel’s Avengers will release alongside the PlayStation 3, PS4, Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC versions on January 29th.
