It’s the latest entry in TT Games’ quest to bring all of its games to as many platforms as possible, and marks the 13th platform some form of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has been available to play on. The rest are (deep breath) PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.
The reason behind that exhaustive list of platforms is simple: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is eight years old, and just like video game mainstays Grand Theft Auto V and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, now spans multiple generations of consoles. (It’s surely just a matter of time before it gets slightly more polished for a PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X update.)
The Nintendo Switch version bundles together both of the game’s downloadable add-ons in one neat little package, including the Super Pack’s seven characters – Dark Phoenix, Winter Soldier, Symbiote Spider-Man, Hawkeye (classic), Beta Ray Bill, Thanos and A-Bomb – and two vehicles, and the Asgard Character Pack’s eight playable heroes and villains from Thor: The Dark World.
Fans in North America can grab LEGO Marvel Super Heroes for the Switch right now, while it’ll launch in the UK and other territories on Friday, October 8. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is already available for Nintendo’s hybrid console, while TT Games’ next brand new title, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, is currently scheduled for spring 2022.
