Captain America: The Winter Soldier Gets A Game… But Not On Consoles

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is getting a videogame based on the movie, but not on consoles. Gameloft are developing the game for smartphones.

 

You’ll play as Captain America and lead a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents against a bunch of Marvel villains, using group-based combat. There will also be a multiplayer mode of sorts, although details on this front are scarce.

 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled for release on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android in late March. Back in 2012, Marvel said that there were no plans for Sega to publish any more Marvel games. Sega, as you may recall, held the license for Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man for a few years.

    I don’t think anyone is surprised that this is where the movie tie-in games go now.

      They are where they deserved.

        Wow! great response

      It’s actually a shame. A lot of the super-hero games are very good: they don’t break new ground, but are brief, solid experiences that are a lot of fun and make for terrific weekend rentals. Captain America and Green Lantern are excellent especially, and I definitely suggest checking them out.

    Sega wasted their Marvel licences, sad that everything is going mobile now.

    Too bad. I’d have loved another Arkham Asylum clone.

      Yea, the combat is just fun even if everything else is bad.

    Good. The industry should do this a lot more. It might actually lead to movie licensed games being able to turn out decent on the relatively-short notice they get.

    Shame. Super Soldier was a pretty decent game.

    Captain America & Iron Man were bleh anyway.

    Outside of Rockstar’s adaptation of The Warriors, this is the first time I ever noticed a developer, getting savvier, when it comes to film-based licensed games.

    Glad to know extra efforts are being done to avert another E.T. fiasco, which the western audience will never live down.

    Yus. This might actually be a fitting platform for most movie games.
    It reaches practically anyone who has seen the movie.
