We were pretty impressed with Sega's prologue trailer for its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Captain America: Super Soldier last week, but what of the Captain America: The First Avenger movie tie-in's other versions on the Wii and DS? Over the course of E3 Sega dropped a number of new screen shots from Captain America: Super Soldier, which give potential players some cool glimpses of the adventure game. The most interesting shot? Probably the seeing Cap in front of a portrait of a very comics-looking Baron Zemo. See what you think of the new screens after the jump.We already k
