By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Certain comic book fans can’t wait to watch Kenneth Branagh’s big-screen version of “Thor.” We, however, can’t wait to play it.
But as with the movie, we’re going to have to wait until next year. SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America today announced they will bring Marvel’s “Thor” to video game systems for a third-person adventure scheduled for release on all five major video game platforms in 2011.
“We are proud to be bringing Marvel’s Thor to his first solo video game adventure,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “Thor: The Video Game will finally bring the immense power of this iconic hero to lifelong fans, and introduce the God of Thunder to a whole new audience as a true Marvel Super Hero.”
According to a release, Thor will battle through “the numerous worlds of Norse mythology that span realms ranging from primal worlds of fire and ice to extraordinary planets inhabited by Frost Giants and Trolls to save Asgard, the capital city of the Norse Gods. Thor must overcome monstrous foes lifted from the pages of the comics including Ulik, Ymir, and Surtur, as well as other monstrous denizens. Players will wield the iconic Mjölnir, Thor’s legendary hammer, to fight enemies on an immense scale while controlling the elemental storm powers of lightning, thunder, and wind to vanquish enemies. As Thor earns Valor points through his exploits, players can acquire new abilities, powers, and weapon upgrades.”
