More languages for Marvel Super Hero Squad Online

- to be published immediately -

Munich, Germany, June 14, 2012. The Super Heroes of Marvel Super Hero Squad Online are adding two more languages to their vocabulary. The free-to-play massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) is now available to play in Spanish and Portuguese.

Until now, the browser game aimed primarily at a young audience was available in German, English, and French. Following the launch of the French version, this update is the next step toward creating a Europe-wide Marvel Super Hero Squad Online community. Marvel Super Hero Squad Online is based on the internationally well-known "Super Hero Squad" franchise of legendary Marvel comic heroes.

Varied gameplay for everyone

In Marvel Super Hero Squad Online, players take on the roles of their favorite Super Heroes such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, or Thor, and prevent evil Super Villains like Magneto or Doctor Doom from seizing power. The varied gameplay allows players to embark on action-packed missions individually or in teams of up to four players. Fans can discover additional areas online with their friends: entertaining challenges in arcade games within the main game, individually customizable headquarters, and exciting, strategic collector's card duels. Players use the extensive collection of cards to create their own powerful decks and compete against each other or the computer. This leads to encounters between popular heroes and villains of the Marvel universe. The battles of the tactical card game are presented in impressive 3D animations. Meanwhile, the challenge mode provides players new to the MMO genre and experienced gamers alike with an additional incentive, as certain quests are rewarded with heroes or tickets for the wheel of fortune.

New Super Heroes available regularly

Once registered, every player can choose from a large supply of costumes to suit up in (e.g. Thing, Cyclops, Falcon, or Ms. Marvel). Premium members of Marvel Super Hero Squad Online have even more choice: These players can use exclusive characters in advance, such as Iron Man or Black Suit Spider-Man. Spanish and Portuguese players will also be delighted with the cast of more than 40 additional well-known characters currently available from the in-game shop. Others of Marvel's more than 5,000 characters are added regularly.
