Most kids are happy when their parents shell out for new bike or current-gen gaming console, but when you're an Asgardian prince, your dad's got to try a little harder to impress you with a present. That's the subject of Sega's new prologue video for Thor: God of Thunder, which depicts Marvel's movieverse hero being gifted with the uru mallet Mjolnir from his father Odin while Loki and his frost giant forces plan an attack on the outskirts of Asgard. Judging from the hammer's display of power, it's a safe bet players will have a solid time smashing the frosty foes.In the comics, Odin and Thor have dwarven ingenuity to thank for Mjolnir's mystical storm-summoning might, but the movie may take a different route in explaining its power. You know, "Your ancestors called it magic and you call it science. I come from a place where they're one and the same" and all that. Either way, folks with a Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and/or Nintendo DS/3DS can possess the power of Thor: God of Thunder themselves on May 3.
