New Footage of Canceled Marvel Fighting Game Resurrects Feelings of Sadness It Will Never Exist

EA
EA

Way back in the long, long ago, Marvel and EA forged a partnership to create fighting games set in the Marvel Universe. Marvel: Rise of the Imperfects was not a great first effort. In 2007, EA announced its Chicago studio, the developers of the acclaimed Fight Night boxing series, would develop an entirely new Marvel fighter. Unfortunately, just one year later the partnership was dissolved, and EA Chicago's in-development title was canned.

Many wondered what could have been, but thanks to some solid digging by numerous gaming outlets, brief glimpses of the game escaped for public view. In the years since, most have all but forgotten about Marvel, but new footage from a prototype of the title was unearthed this week. The video comes courtesy of PtoPOnline (via Kotaku), a YouTube channel focused on the preservation of games, and in particular, prototypes of games that were either never released or different from their retail release counterparts.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gameplay Video: Drone You Forget About Me

Rocksteady Studios
Rocksteady Studios

With Batman: Arkham Knight due to arrive in just a few weeks, it's time for the endless promotional assault on your senses to kick into high gear. Some skins and pre-order exclusives were touted earlier this week, but now Rocksteady Studios has returned with a new bit of gameplay showing off both hand-to-hand and vehicular combat.

As the third game in the Arkham trilogy proper (Rocksteady doesn't count Arkham Origins, and neither should you), Arkham Knight appears to be the most ambitious Batman video game yet. Besides the obvious graphical improvements offered by the current crop of consoles, Rocksteady's included a wealth of new features for its open world Gotham, including the ability to get behind the wheel of the Batmobile and shoot the crap out of some tanks. But don't worry Bat-fans, these are just drones. Batman isn't killing anyone; he's just maiming them really, really, really, really badly.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the Best 8-Bit Marvel Movie

captain america cinefix

Those devils at CineFix are at it again, this time taking their retro-inspired gaming talents to the greatest Marvel movie ever made in the history of the universe, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

We're big fans of CineFix's 8-bit remakes of classic films, and though Winter Soldier isn't quite as classic as Scarface or Titanic (yet), it's definitely one of the most memorable Marvel movies since the heroes started making the leap from the panel to the screen. Seeing many of the big moments from the feature film revisited here in a style reminiscent of Mega Man only served to remind us just how amazing Winter Soldier was, and still is today.
