Marvel Tsum Tsum Mobile Game Launches In North America

Mixi today announced the launch of MARVEL Tsum Tsum, a connect-and-erase puzzle game featuring Super Heroes and Super Villains from the Marvel Universe in the Tsum Tsum style seen in the popular plush toys. The game, which offers a 2-player co-op mode, is now available as a free download, with in-app purchases, in the United States and Canada on the Apple App Store and Google Play, with plans to roll out to other territories throughout the year.

Marvel Tsum Tsum features Super Heroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hulk, Ant-Man, Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Spider-Man, and more. These heroes go up against Super Villains such as Loki, Ultron, Green Goblin and Ronan the Accuser.

Connect three or more of any of the same Tsum Tsum by tracing lines on the screen and eliminate them. The more a player connects, the greater the effect. Players can erase their chosen Super Hero Tsum Tsum to collect energy, release devastating skills and special attacks, and leverage abilities to support friends in Battle mode.

Multiplayer Battle mode allows players to team up and defeat Super Villains for greater rewards. Players can team up with a friend and play 2-player co-op.

MARVEL Tsum Tsum is developed by NHN PlayArt Corp., published by XFLAG, a mixi game development studio. Marvel Tsum Tsum is available today as a free download. Check out the game's launch trailer above.

Marvel Comics is also publishing an Marvel Tsum Tsum crossover comic book series, featuring characters from both the main Marvel universe and their Tsum Tsum counterparts.
