Nintendo Announces DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power For Switch
The game will be based on the DC animated TV show.
DC Super Hero Girls is an ongoing DC franchise aimed at a younger audience, following teen versions of DC's iconic superheroes as they attend "Super Hero High School." DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power, the game announced in Nintendo's latest Direct, is the first game to be announced for the franchise, and it's due out on the Switch on June 4.
The trailer for Teen Power showcases combat as Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman, while Green Lantern (Jessica Cruz), Bumblebee, and Zatanna are also shown to be part of the main team. As well as combat, the game is set to have social RPG elements, with the characters also navigating high school life, buying new outfits, and taking pictures for an in-game social media network.
After launching in 2015 as a web series, DC Super Hero Girls has since seen a rebooted TV show led by Lauren Faust of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fame. Season 1 ran for 52 episodes between March 2019 and December 2020, and a second season is due out sometime in 2021.
DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power is due to release on June 4 on the Nintendo Switch.
