Sega Announces Next-Gen Iron Man

ironman2_large.JPGMarvel is everywhere in gaming these days it seems, and its presence is only growing stronger. Today, for instance, Sega and Marvel have inked a deal that grants Sega exclusive rights to develop and publish new games across all platforms based on Marvel’s Iron Man property. Sega’s first title in development under this new partnership is a next-gen game based on the upcoming Iron Man feature film, which is due in theaters on May 2, 2008. Details on which next-gen consoles the game is in development for were not provided, though PS3 and 360 versions are pretty much a given. A Wii Iron Man game would be cool too, but we’ll wait for further announcements before speculating too much more.

“Marvel is recognized as one of the world’s leaders in the entertainment industry and Sega is excited to be publishing the next-gen interactive entertainment based on Iron Man, the first Marvel Studios project being brought to the widescreen,” said Simon Jeffery, President and COO, SEGA of America, Inc. “The Iron Man history is filled with compelling and intriguing characters and stories and with the power of the next-gen systems, SEGA will be bringing these characters to life like never before.”
