Thor & Captain America games at WonderCon

Behind the scenes with Thor

Thor: God Of Thunder

SEGA appeared at WonderCon in San Francisco last week, and showed off their two remaining Marvel games: Captain America: Super Soldier, and Thor: God Of Thunder. Above is a new behind the scenes look at Thor, and a very bad looking Thor trailer for the Wii. Over at the SEGA Blogs, they also included that awful looking Captain America Wii trailer that I previously reported on.

So, what do the SEGAbits readers think of these two games? I think Captain America is looking a lot better than Thor, and I hope SEGA will strive for this quality anytime they ever think about making another license game.

Thor game to have Shadow of the Colossus type boss battles

1up is running a article titled, “Five Things You Didn’t Know About Thor: The Video Game.” Some of the stuff is already known, at least I already knew. But they have a few things I didn’t really know about. One of those things is having big boss battles, SEGA hinted that Thor will have a grapple ability to climb them and strike their weak points, like Shadow of the Colossus. It makes no sense to do this, since Mjolnir lets him fly.

As for the Wii version of the game, that version is being developed by Red Fly, who specialize in porting HD games to Wii. They did the port for Ghostbusters game and it didn’t turn out awful. The Wii version will also be more kid friendly, to go with what everyone assumes the Wii fanbase is and will have a more comic book like presentation. Yes, you will be able to swing your hammer with the wiimote.

The DS version is sounding the best. It will be developed by Wayforward (A Boy and his Blob and Contra IV) and will be a Contra like sprite arcade side scrolling game.
