Gamers with a heroic bent can soon get more kicks as Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna and other famous DC Comics characters. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is in production on Justice League of America, a new video game based on the comic-book legends and the hit Cartoon Network series. The superhero action role-playing title will release for PlayStation 2 and Xbox in the fall of 2006.
“The innovative and highly engaging combat system in the Justice League of America game will capture the strength and appeal of the characters, offering players a tremendously fun and rewarding experience," promises Jason Hall, senior VP of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
“The joy of Justice League as a game is the chance to be your favorite characters and to interact with the rest of the team in the rich fantasy world of the DC universe,” adds Paul Levitz, president and publisher of DC Comics.
In the game, each super hero will possess unique powers, allowing for a variety of fighting styles for players to utilize while battling the forces of evil. Gamers will have the power to customize these skills and engage in single-player action or two-player cooperative combat throughout interactive and destructible environments.
Justice League Unlimited, the third season of the new animated action series, airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. and Sundays at 10:30 p.m. on Cartoon Network.
