There were a lot of great announcements during the Disney and Marvel Games Showcase 2022 event. But, as expected, we’ve got the five best ones to provide for you. And there’s some good stuff coming, Maynard. Let’s get started!
Tron Returns With a Mysterious New Game
First up, Tron is coming back to games, programs! Coming in 2023, Tron: Identity provides a twist on the usual gaming venture. This time around, it’s a mysterious adventure, where you follow the adventures of Query, a detective who’s trying to stop someone from creating danger within the Grid. As you might expect, that’s not an easy task. Developed by Mike Bithell and his team at Bithell Games, this one’s got intriguing artwork and a great premise. We can’t wait to dive in.
Gargoyles Is Coming Back From the Genesis Era!
Disney has been on a classic gaming kick as of late, with re-releases of hits like Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Aladdin, and The Lion King. Next up, we have…Gargoyles! The Sega Genesis classic, based on the animated series of the same name, will be remade by the team at Empty Clip Studios, and is well within the works. There’s no word on release date yet, but it’s expected sometime in 2023. Fingers crossed that the animated series makes a return as well, yeah?
Illusion Island Has Mickey Mouse Channeling His Best Rayman
Next up is a fun little exclusive coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2023, Illusion Island! The game, created by Battletoads developer Dlala Studios, has Mickey Mouse and his friends traveling across many great lands, using their abilities to keep going. The game definitely has a Rayman Legends vibe, and looks to offer some strong co-op elements as well. We’ll see how it shapes up in the months ahead. Dibs on Goofy!
Amy Hennig’s Teaming Up With Captain America and Black Panther
Next up is a nice little surprise – the new Marvel game from the developers at Skydance New Media, headed up by Uncharted writer Amy Hennig. Though the game doesn’t have an official title yet, it will feature Captain America and a version of Black Panther, battling across two different eras. There’s no word on release date yet, but 2023 looks pretty likely. Here’s hoping it’s got some great elements to it – and of course, lots of shield throwing!
Marvel’s Midnight Suns Finally Has a New Release Date
Finally, we know many of you have been eagerly anticipating the new Marvel adventure from 2K and Firaxis Games, and we’ve got some (mostly) good news – you won’t have to wait much longer. Midnight Suns will finally make its debut on next-gen consoles and PC on December 2nd, just in time for the holidays! Sadly, there’s no word on the Nintendo Switch version just yet.
