Thor & Captain America video games will be in 3D, SEGA confirmed at their latest press event. The versions of the game that will come in 3D are the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo 3DS.
This means that the Wii and DS versions of the game will stay in ‘2D’, since they are not capable of producing a 3D image. SEGA also released a new batch of screenshots, hit the jump to view those.

Sony has made such a big deal out of 3D, I didn't even realize that the XBOX 360 was capable of 3D games. I'm still not buying a 3D TV.
IGN did a story on these games and called the DS versions of both promising, along with the Wii version of Thor.
They say the Wii version of Captain America and the PS3/360 versions of both games are both nothing special, however.
Woo! Now we can play nothing special in 3D!!!
I can simply never be happy about these kind of games… Sega are above this kind of thing and I'm sad that they went to this level.
I am thankful that they have said after this marvel deal is over they wont be making anymore games like this.
Cheap and easy movie cash ins are NOT the way I want my favourite videogame company to go…
I have nothing against license games, heck I love Aliens and want to see more out of that… but games that have to be rushed out to meet movie dead lines? No, never.
I don't mind if they make SEGA lots of money. As long as I don't have to play Iron Man again.
Wait… how are XBOX games capable of being 3D? Sony keeps telling me that they can't do it.
Based on the new trailers I've seen, I'm excited for both the HD versions of Captain America and Thor. The Captain America game in particular is becoming a very tempting preorder for me.
Sony said that 360 couldn't do 3D? When was this?
Can 360 do 'True' 3D? One of the issues is that the console only supports HDMI 1.2, when the console needs HDMI 1.4 (which PS3 supports). According Digital Foundry, 360 devs get over this handicap by taking two images and cramming it into a 720p image, while PS3 does 2 720p images (can at least, Killzone 3 isn't this).
"Overall then, it's fair to say that the Xbox 360 is in fairly good shape for providing a good, though not optimal stereo 3D experience. While there remain very real question marks over proper HDMI 1.4 compliance, the fact that there is such a large melting pot of different 3D rendering techniques, and a very real standard in the form of the side-by-side framebuffer, suggests that compatibility with 3DTVs won't be problem.
However, there is a possibility that the 360 will be unable to match the true 720p per eye introduced by HDMI 1.4 and supported on PS3. "
I don't know how you are just figuring out that 360 is capable of 3D. Avatar the game and Black Ops launched in 3D on both platforms.
In the end, I like 3D technology because framerate in the retail title has to be upped to support 2 images, thus giving the 2D user more stable framerate.
Woh! Mr. Tech!
Naw, I wasn't trying to bash Sony or anything. I just got the impression from E3 and the "It Only Does Everything" ads that Sony had the only console capable of 3D. I never followed Avatar the game or Black Ops, so I never knew of their 3D capabilities. That's interesting stuff. Wonder if we'll start to see more 360 3D games as time goes on? Would love to see a 3D Sonic title.
George rambling about Sony stuff, always worth a laugh.
Anyways, I think the Thor game seems incredibly awful, but I am actually looking forward to Captain America. I wish people would not just pass that game off so fast.
Yes, even though I was talking about the 360 and 3D. Learn to read young man.
