SEGA recently announced that they will bring Marvel's patriotic superhero - Captain America - to video game systems in an original WWII adventure called Captain America: Super Soldier. The title is scheduled for release in 2011 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii and Nintendo DS systems.
Players will become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his army in a third-person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America's powerful shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra's mysterious castle and battle the infamous Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull. As the First Avenger himself, players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola (concept art pictured above) and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.
Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls.
The original story for Captain America: Super Soldier is being penned by noted comic, film, and TV writer Christos Gage. The primary writer for the Marvel's Avengers: The Initiative series of comics, Gage has written numerous books for major Marvel characters, including Siege: Captain America, Iron Man, X-Men, Spider-Man, Civil War: House of M, and Union Jack.
Gage wrote his original story for Captain America: Super Soldier so that the setting exists within the same world as the upcoming movie of the same name, but he infused the game with twists designed to enhance gameplay with all-new action sequences.
