Next summer, SEGA will release a game on all the major console and handheld formats of Marvel superhero Thor. Thor: The Videogame is a third person adventure game and the plot has had lead Thor comic book writer Matt Fraction on consulting duties, so it should go down well with the fans. The game is Thor’s first solo gaming appearance, having appeared with other characters in the likes of Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series.

Those who are familiar with the character will already know that his hammer will give you the freedom to control thunder, lightning and wind, and you’ll also be able to upgrade your abilities in the game.

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.” Said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America.

This announcement isn’t surprising given that Thor will be a major film release, starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, come next summer.
