First Images from Sega’s Captain America: Super Soldier Game

MTV‘s got your first look at some screenshots and concept artwork from Sega’s upcoming “Captain America” movie tie-in, the “Captain America: Super Soldier” game. You won’t be slinging the Star Spangled Avenger’s shield or run around in his red white and blue until sometime in 2011, when the game is released, probably around the same time as the movie starring Chris Evans’ July 22, 2011 release date.

More about what you’ll be doing in the game:

Sega confirms that Cap’s interactive World War II-set adventure will pit him against the Red Skull and his army as well as the terrorist organization known as HYDRA. In addition to Red Skull, the primary antagonist in “Captain America: First Avenger,” the titular patriot will also trade blows with the likes of Iron Cross, World War II Germany’s answer to the US super-soldier program, and mad biochemist Arnim Zola, who will surely have his own army of abominations for players to carve through.

The game is described as a third-person action adventure featuring close-quarters combat — with Cap’s shield, of course — and platforming. The shield will serve as more than just a projectile and head-bashing tool; it will also be a key component in solving some of the game’s puzzles.

“Captain America: Super Soldier” will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS platforms.

    Looks cool. It also makes me think that while I have been totally againdt the whole “wings on the cowl” thing, it could work if done right. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    It looks cool. The concept art is really nice. I’m digging the Madame Hydra in Nazi gear. The Cap uniform looks like his comics one so I think that may be an extra costume, you can get like in most games and they don’t want to ruin the surprise. All we’ve seen so far is concept art and stunt double gear. So we know that it wont be just like in the comics.
