Marvel Entertainment has announced that Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 will be receiving a “Deluxe Edition.” Those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition of the game will also receive a Giant-Man Minifigure as well as Guardians of the Galaxy Character Pack along with the rest of the Season Pass.
Marvel.com also had a quick interview with Arthur Parsons, who is the Head of Design at TT Games. Here are some highlights of the interview.
Marvel.com: Giant-Man is making a big appearance in “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.” How did his role in the game’s story come to be?
Arthur Parsons: Giant-Man is making a massive appearance in “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2,” and the reason he’s involved all revolves around how we wanted to tie the game together. We have a truly epic story spanning multiple Marvel realities and teams of heroes battling the time travelling Kang the Conqueror across Chronopolis, and as such we wanted to ensure that the gigantic scale of the story makes sense to the player. So, we have Giant-Man’s love interest Janet Van Dyne—[aka The] Wasp—directing operations from Avengers Mansion. Given that “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2” features characters from different time periods and realities, we wanted to bring a different version of Hank Pym to the forefront, hence why we picked this version of Giant-Man—aka Goliath. Having the interplay between him and Wasp, as well as a scientific head-to-head with Tony Stark really makes for some great fun.
Marvel.com: What can you tell us about this expanded role in the sequel’s story?
Arthur Parsons: His role in the game is tremendously important, and he is definitely a character that brings light relief to some very dramatic and serious scenes throughout the game. He is also a vital part as the game builds to a crescendo, where he works with Tony Stark to open a portal rift to…actually I’m at risk of giving spoilers away here so let’s just stick to the fact that he has a colossal role in the “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2” story! You’ll have to wait to see just how substantial that role is.
