TinyCo and Marvel Entertain have announced Marvel Avengers Academy, a new adventure / simulation game currently in development for iOS and Android devices. Marvel Avengers Academy will task players with building a superhero school capable of guiding Earth’s Mightiest Heroes from adolescence to adulthood:
Players will unlock the young versions of their favorite Avengers characters through exploration, and will upgrade and develop their superpowers and play through original narrative-driven stories written in partnership between TinyCo and Marvel Entertainment. To further customize the experience, each iconic character can be suited with unique abilities and exclusive outfits. MARVEL Avengers Academy marks the first time in videogame history that the beloved cast of the Avengers has been re-envisioned as student versions of themselves.
Players will experience life on the superhero campus by going on dates, confronting groups and navigating their character’s social development. Heroes and villains will play sports and train to build strength, and go on original field missions.
“Marvel’s Avengers is an amazing franchise with near endless possibilities,” stated Andrew N. Green, Head of Business Operations at TinyCo said in a press release. “We are excited to work closely with the team at Marvel Games on MARVEL Avengers Academy to offer a truly unique experience that will allow a broad range of players to interact with the iconic characters and universe in ways never before seen in gaming!”
“Whether its visiting Stark Tower or going on a date with Loki, players will soon be debating what’s the coolest experience of MARVEL Avengers Academy, but for this lifelong fan, it’s seeing world-famous Super Heroes like Captain America, Black Widow and Iron Man reimagined into charmingly fresh but instantly recognizable young adult forms,” said Bill Rosemann, Marvel Games Creative Director. “And here’s the extra twist: There’s a mystery for you to uncover—a shocking truth that lies beneath the very campus you’re exploring. You see, these are the real deal Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (and Villains), complete with their distinct personalities, powers and personal struggles that we’ve all grown to know and love. What has transformed them into students, and what chain of events have assembled them at the ultimate superhuman university? Class is in session…do you have what it takes to become an Avenger?”
