Games development company TinyCo and Marvel Entertainment announced Thursday that Super Hero school is officially in session with Marvel Avengers Academy, an all-new adventure / simulation game.
Currently in development for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices, Marvel Avengers Academy will allow players to build their dream Super Hero school and guide the paths of the characters as complex young adults grappling with newly emerging powers and social lives.
In Marvel Avengers Academy players will unlock the young versions of their favorite Avengers characters through exploration, and will upgrade and develop their superpowers and play through original narrative-driven stories written in partnership between TinyCo and Marvel Entertainment.
To further customize the experience, each character can be suited with unique abilities and exclusive outfits. Marvel Avengers Academy marks the first time in videogame history that the beloved cast of the Avengers has been re-envisioned as student versions of themselves.
Marvel Avengers Academy is developed by TinyCo and will release in Q1 2016 as a free-to-download game with in-app purchases for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and for Android devices.
Marvel Entertainment, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, is one of the world’s leading character-based entertainment companies.
