SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America Inc. have announced that Marvel Entertainment Inc.'s hall-of-fame franchise Thor will hit PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, Wii and DS consoles next year.
According to the press release, Thor: The Video Game is a third-person action title that takes its inspiration "directly from the mythology of the comics", although it will launch to coincide with a Thor film adaptation from Marvel Studios.
Eisner Award-winning writer and lead comic book author Matt Fraction serves as a story consultant to the game's narrative.
“We are proud to be bringing Thor to his first solo video game adventure” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “Thor: The Video Game will finally bring the immense power of this iconic hero to lifelong fans, and introduce the God of Thunder to a whole new audience as a true Marvel Super Hero.”
