The popular video game collaboration between Lego and Marvel continues with Warner Bros Interactive announcing Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. Once again, Marvel will combine its mega popular comic book and film franchises with the classic Danish toy set, all in video game form.

How Many Heroes Are in Lego Marvel Superheroes? Review

Traveller's Tales offers up one of the best Marvel games to date.

The sequel will center around a fictional hub world called "Chronopolis" which sits at the intersection of various timelines and worlds. All the super heroes who are brought together through Chronopolis' strange time distortions will face off against the classic Marvel villain, Kang the Conqueror, who plans on taking over Chronopolis, and by extension, the Marvel universe.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is one of the many popular Lego video games published by Warner Bros. Interactive. The franchise's Marvel collaborations in particular are very well receieved. Thanks to the game's open-world structure, and a packed roster of playable superheroes, Lego Marvel Superheroes is definitely one of the more recommended Lego titles.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 looks to borrow characters from the wider Marvel Universe, which has grown considerably in the four years since the previous Lego Marvel Super Heroes game. Players can now take control of popular movie characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and gladiator Hulk who was popularized in the Planet Hulk comic but will appear in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok film. The announcement even teases comic characters like Spider-Gwen and Spider-Man 2099 who haven't yet made any official Marvel movie appearances.

The open segments where you can play as the different Marvel characters and explore the different powers are usually considered the best parts of the game, whether it's flying around in Iron Man's suit, Spider-Man's webslinging, or any of the other hundreds of super powers in the game players can explore.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is developed by TT Games and will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC starting November 14, 2017, with a holiday release scheduled for the Nintendo Switch.

    I think your enjoyment of Lego games is tied directly to how much you appreciate the fanservice, which is why Lego Marvel Super Heroes is the only one I really liked, and I loved it. The fact that the villain in this one is Kang the Conqueror is a great sign.

  • I'm pretty excited about this. The Lego games are great 2 player romps with enjoyable jokes and fanservice that aren't too difficult, perfect for playing with my wife. We're still trying to 100% the first Lego Marvel Superheroes, and Lego Lord of the Rings is on the queue and I plan to get City Undercover and Indiana Jones so this one will come just in time.

    I'm interested, but if this game ends up being another Marvel thing that cuts out the X-Men and Fantastic Four casts 'cuz some suit is butthurt about Fox having the film rights to them I'm gonna kick somebody's teeth in. =/

    The X-Men and Fantastic Four were great in Lego Marvel 1.
