The beloved action-adventure features an original storyline starring the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Wolverine, Black Widow, Hulk, Deadpool, Thor, Spider-Man, Loki, and many more. In total, players can unlock over 100 playable characters either throughout the narrative or via various side missions.
The new Switch version will feature all previously released DLC packs, so this includes the Lego Marvel Super Heroes Super Pack and the Lego Marvel Super Heroes Asgard Pack.
Developed by Traveller’s Tales and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Lego Marvel Super Heroes was originally released back in October 2013. The game went on to receive positive reviews, before being ported to most platforms so a Switch release seemed inevitable, if not a little later than many would have anticipated.

“Featuring an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe and filled with classic Lego videogame adventure and humour, players take on the role of their favourite Marvel superheroes as they unite to stop a host of villains from destroying the world,” wrote Marvel Entertainment associate editor of new media Marika Hashimoto in the announcement.
“Players will smash, swing and fly through the Marvel Universe as they travel to iconic locations, such as Stark Tower, the X-Mansion, Asteroid M, and Asgard,” they added.
A Lego Super Mario new starter course featuring Luigi was announced earlier this year, with seemingly more Nintendo-related content on the way.
