Young Justice: Legacy battling in early 2013

Warner Bros. and Little Orbit bringing action role-playing game based on Cartoon Network TV series to Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and DS during beginning of next year.

by

Warner Bros. is digging into its DC Comics license again, this time granting Little Orbit publishing rights for a game based on the Young Justice cartoon series for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and DS.

Young Justice: Legacy morphs from TV show to game next year.

Due out in 2013, Young Justice: Legacy will be an action role-playing game that is set between the events of seasons 1 and 2 of the animated television series Young Justice. The game is being written with the help of show scribes Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti.

The game's announcement did not note which character(s) from the television show players will be controlling or what villains players will face. Some DC Comics characters from Young Justice are Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian, and Artemis.

A website for the title is presently live, and it indicates gamers will be able to control 12 different playable characters and take on 12 villains. The game also sports online and local multiplayer modes, though no mention was made as to how these game types will operate.

Looks interesting. I'll wait to see the gameplay before I decide if I'm going to get or not.

i just hope they would put a lot of thought and effort in to this game. as many of us know, most games that are based on movies and TV shows end up being a wast of time.

so please work hard on this one because i love the show and i don't want to hate the game.

Please for the love of god don't make this some stupid kids game and actually take it seriously. Just because it's based off a cartoon doesn't mean u have to make it Cell Shaded and kiddie in order to turn a profit. I think Batman Arkham City proved there is a place for more mature comic book based games.

Hard to tell whether it'll be good or bad. I hope it turns out good.

They could make this something incredible... but they probably won't.
