Fans of the animated series Young Justice are in for a treat. Video game publisher Little Orbit announced today that a video game based off the Warner Bros. Animation series, titled Young Justice: Legacy, is set to hit stores in early 2013.
In Young Justice the animated series, teenage heroes Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis are tasked by the Justice League to act as their covert operations team. The team must battle against a wide array of villains from the DC Universe while trying to prove to themselves, and to their superhero mentors, that they have what it takes to be be more than sidekicks.
The video game Young Justice: Legacy involves an original storyline that is set between Seasons 1 and 2 of the television series, written in collaboration with the show writers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti.
"The TV series is a fantastic combination of compelling writing, witty humor, iconic art, and exciting action sequences. The creators have done an amazing job blending over 180 DC Comics characters into their show filtered through a new, youthful perspective," said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit. "The new video game contains a slew of cool features and a large playable cast of familiar heroes, but our core mission is to create a unique experience that fits seamlessly into the world of the show and offers a new way to interact with these popular DC Comics characters."
The game will be available for Playstation 3, Xbox360, Microsoft, Wii, and Nintendo DS.
