Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 Announced
I loved Lego Marvel Superheroes for the Wii U. The game had tons of Marvel heroes: everyone from Spider-man to the X-men to the Fantastic Four. Of course, the game couldn’t cover ALL of the Marvel heroes. The Guardians of the Galaxy only got a cameo in the game and other characters were missing too. sigh. If only there was a sequel to this game coming out soon. Wait a second…what’s this?! Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 was announced today! We have the details below, a teaser trailer (Baby Groot!), and my thoughts on the game.
Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 will be coming on November 14th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Nintendo Switch version is only listed for holiday 2017 so far.

I am so very excited about this game! Kang the Conqueror as the villain?! Time travel?! Spider-man 2099, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Cowboy Captain America, Thor, Hulk, etc!
