Snowblind Studios has announced that they will be developing a video game based on Justice League Heroes for the PlayStation 2.
The action-adventure game will feature an original story from Dwayne McDuffie. McDuffie has written for Static Shock, Justice League, Teen Titans, Damage Control, and Deathlok. The game will include characters including Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna, and other unlockable characters. Each hero will possess an array of character-specific, upgradeable superpowers.
“In Justice League Heroes, gamers get to play Batman and Superman together along with an amazing team of superheroes wielding unprecedented powers for stand alone action on consoles and the PSP system,” Jason Hall, the Senior Vice President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, stated. “This game utilizes Snowblind’s innovative gameplay technologies and the respected story writing of Dwayne McDuffie to bring fans and gamers some of the best super hero battles in the universe.”
“Working on Justice League Heroes is exciting because players will get a chance to experience the superpowers of these well-known and loved super heroes together first hand,” Paul Knutzen, a Game Designer at Snowblind Studios, commented. “This is a real opportunity to bring the celebrated characters to life in dynamic gameplay, showcasing their individual powers and their incredible capabilities working as a team.”
“Comics and video games go hand in hand so it’s only natural to have a game featuring iconic characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman,” enthused Paul Levits, DC Comics President and Publisher. “Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will do a great job of bringing the Justice League to life.”
