Gazillion Teases ‘Super Hero Squad Online’ MMORPG With New Images

Making good on its 10-year licensing deal with Marvel, Gazillion Entertainments released its first images representing (i.e. not literal screen grabs) the upcoming “Super Hero Squad Online,” a massively multiplayer online game set in the “good guys” vs. “bad guys” world of the SHS cartoon, comic book and toyline.

The PC-based game will allow players to control a variety of Marvel heroes. Fighting, of course, is a core element of the title, but exploring familiar and all-new environments, collecting items and socializing with other players are also emphasized by Gazillion’s official press release:

Jay Minn, Creative Director for Super Hero Squad Online, says: “In Super Hero Squad Online you are not a nameless sidekick! You’ll swing through Super Hero City as Spider-Man or zap the bad guys with Cyclops’ optic blasts in high-voltage missions. Or you can just hang out in a high-energy, immersive world filled with other Marvel fans!”

Really, I just want to play as Doctor Doom in his bathrobe with five o’clock shadow.

Gazillion’s debuting the SHSO official trailer on Spike TV’s GameTrailers tonight, which will likely not deliver that scenario, but it could be interesting to see what differences exist between this game and THQ’s SHS console title.
