Marvel Powers United VR is more than just another upcoming superhero video game. Marvel has produced a ton of those over the years. Anyone remember way back in the 1980’s when Spider-Man debuted for the Atari 2600? The newest planned video game definitely is a lot more advanced than any previous release. Marvel Powers United VR will be the House of Idea’s first virtual reality game.
Actually, the VR game is being developed and produced by Oculus on a Marvel license agreement. Oculus deserves the bulk of the credit for the creation of the game. Both Marvel and Oculus should experience a major cash windfall when the game comes out. Stepping into the virtual reality shoes of The Incredible Hulk and other heroes positively does sound like a cool gaming experience. Okay, The Hulk is barefoot but the sentiment remains the same.
The Hulk won’t be the only character players can assume in the game. A dozen different heroes are available opening the door for a player to enjoy the game from 12 different perspectives. How one hero deals with a situation is not the same way another would. Marvel Powers United VR definitely won’t become a boring game for any consumer too quickly.
Superhero movies are still doing quite well at the box office. The popularity of heroes has not translated to comic book sales. However, video games and other ancillary merchandise seem to be doing extremely well. Marvel Powers United absolutely should be a hit. The concept is great and the market is perfectly hot for such a product.
