    While it seems like DC has been stealing the video game spotlight in recent years, with titles like Batman: Arkham Asylum and City, the upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us, and the two LEGO Batman games, it seems the world famous properties of DC rival Marvel have been standing awkwardly to the side. Luckily, it seems like LEGO is taking a DC hiatus, with the announcement of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.

    The game has an original storyline, albeit not too far off from your standard Marvel affair: Nick Fury enlists the help of Marvel's superheroes, such as The Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Wolverine, to save the planet from the devious Loki and the powerful Galactus.

    The game will feature over 100 unlockable characters from the Marvel universe as well.

    If you enjoyed the past LEGO entries (such as Lord of the Rings, Batman, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars), then this will probably be right up your alley.

    It'll hit the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, PC, 3DS, and Vita this fall.

    Not the most exciting game announcement but LEGO games do have their fans and I'm sure it'll attract Marvel buffs more than that dreadful looking Avengers game.

    In 2012 there were six video games released last year using Marvel characters and only three DC games, two of which weren't even a retail releases.

    I'm done with LEGO games, Batman 2 was alright but got old fast just like every one of those games from TT.

    They just haven't been getting as much press or the reviews that DC properties have been.

    Well to be fair only the Arkham games have been getting consistent reviews. UMvsC has also had very good reviews...

    I haven't enjoyed a Lego game since Star Wars II. I am a Marvel fan, though, so I'll probably rent this when it comes out.

    I guess that's true, but the recent LEGO Batman game got good reviews and Injustice has looked interesting.

    They finally stopped with LEGO games for DS? The console is finally dead.

    Wanted to try Lego Lord of the Rings out, but I can't seem to make myself buy it.

    Unfortunately, the Vita version will be a port of the DS game...

    The world that never was
    I'm looking forward for this :) Always have been more of a Marvel fan than a DC one, and I am loving LEGO City Undercover, so yeah, this is a must-get for me ^_^
