Miss out on the LEGO Marvel games? Then your day has arrived. The LEGO Marvel Collection is finally here, presenting a package of three games.
The LEGO Marvel U
The complete LEGO Marvel Universe arrives today, all bound up in one tidy package. What we have here is a collection of three games. You get LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers in the box.
All three are loaded up with Marvel Easter Eggs, and petty for fans to latch onto. They’re also some of the only Marvel Comics related games to hit consoles in the last few years.
There’s been a real dearth of them past the (awful) Sega movie games after all. While we’ve got Marvel’s Spider-Man now, there’s still nothing that’s got a wider scope. Well, not till Ultimate Alliance 3 anyway, and that’s a Switch exclusive.
So if you’re looking for some games that feature almost the whole of the Marvel U, these would be them. And as a nice little bonus, they’re mostly great fun too.
Check out the official trailer and rundowns below. LEGO Marvel Collection is available right now for the PS4 and Xbox One.
