Square Enix has recently wrapped up their gigantic launch for Final Fantasy XV. The game was literally a decade in the making and some believe that it lived up to its hype. Square Enix has many games in the pipeline such as Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy VII remake. But today, Square Enix, along with Marvel, announced that they’re collaborating on an Avengers game. That’s right folks, a full-blown Avengers game developed by Square Enix.
“Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix announced today a multi-year, multi-game partnership, leading with the reveal of The Avengers project. This newly established partnership pairs the creative minds at Marvel and Square Enix for one of the most powerful alliances in interactive entertainment.”
In the trailer, you can see some iconic items that belong to the the Avenger’s team. From the get-go, you’ll see the glasses that belong to the Incredible Hulk. Then you’ll see Thor’s hammer sitting in the ruins. You’ll also see a part of Tony Stark’s Iron man suit. And in the final scene, you’ll see Captain America’s famous shield lying on the floor.
When people think of RPGs, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy games are mentioned a lot of the time because of their amazing storytelling magic. To have the two companies collaborate is ground breaking news. But this isn’t the first time that a collaboration like this has happened.
Marvel is currently owned by Disney and Disney has previously collaborated with Square Enix on the Kingdom Hearts games. They starred Disney’s iconic characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Disney princesses, and a lot more. Square Enix and Disney have actually come out with Kingdom Hearts 2.8 earlier this month prior to the release of the third sequel.
One thing that we already know without further information is that this game will have a giant budget. Get ready for a new AAA game in the next few years to come.
