‘X-Men: Destiny’ Trailer and Screens Show Off Playable Characters and Mutant Mentors [Video]
E3’s provided us with a look at plenty of comic book videogames this week, but considering all the buzz around X-Men: First Class, it’s a little surprising it took until yesterday to see fresh game footage of Marvel’s merry mutants. The newest trailer for Activision and Silicon Knights’ upcoming X-Men: Destiny gives players their first full look at all three playable characters. Most importantly, the third and final playable character has been revealed — and his sick tribal tats are gone! Huzzah!Along with playable characters Aimi Yoshida and Grant Alexander, players will be able to tap the talents of an as-yet unnamed mutant who could be sporting the third matter manipulation ability players haven’t seen yet. At any rate, the new guy punches and kicks ninja-looking dudes super hard.
Additionally, Marvel.com’s latest screen shot of Aimi reveals that players will have the option to upgrade not only their characters’ X-Gene metered powers, but also their costumes. Aimi’s X-Men uniform suggests all three characters could undergo some serious cosmetic changes as they choose a path of good or evil during the game’s various decision moments as written by comics scribe Mike Carey. We’ll find out for sure when the game drops later this year.
