THQ have announced a sequel to last year’s Marvel Super Hero Squad, which was met by lukewarm reviews. Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet will have a larger cast of mini Marvel heroes to play as and features a new puzzle component which involves you moving and destroying objects and using your selected characters strengths. The game is based on a popular children’s cartoon series that is shown on Cartoon Network.

The sequel will feature three modes: Story mode, challenge mode and Freeplay mode. Which all are pretty obvious of what they’ll entail.

Martin Good, Executive Vice President, Kids, Family, Casual Games, and Global Online Services had this to say: “We are excited to announce the next game in our Marvel Super Hero Squad franchise to an eager fan base, the new co-op Challenge Mode, super-powered action-combat and integrated puzzles truly elevates the series and further broadens the audience.”

The game will be released on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DS. THQ have not announced any specific release dates as of yet, but it’s set for release this coming November.
