In collaboration with Nuverse, Second Dinner and MARVEL Entertainment, today superstar DJ/Producer Martin Garrix and multi-talented viral singer, songwriter, and producer JVKE released their new MARVEL SNAP anthem track ‘Hero’, supported by a Super Hero-studded animated video. In this mind-melding adventure video, inspired by the hit game MARVEL SNAP, epic Marvel love stories are used to explore the trials and tribulations of falling in and out of love.
In the video, JVKE falls deep into thought and imaginative exploration when he gets an all too familiar "Can we talk?" text from his ex-girlfriend, Georgia. Throughout the video, JVKE explores the highs and lows of a relationship through fan favorite Marvel pairs including Spider-Man & Mary Jane, Storm & Black Panther, and Vision & Scarlet Witch. The video showcases beautifully unique variant card art styles that can be found in MARVEL SNAP.
"I’m super honored to be a part of this project with MARVEL SNAP," Martin Garrix said. "I love exploring new territories with my music, and I’m really excited the song is finally out today.’’
MARVEL SNAP launched in October to critical acclaim, and quickly became one of the year’s top downloaded and highest rated games in the world. The adrenaline-pumping, superpowered card battler game lets fans assemble a Marvel dream team of heroes and villains before battling their way through the multiverse to glory—all in just three-minute play battles.
"To celebrate how much players have loved playing MARVEL SNAP over the last few months, we wanted to create a special tribute video for them," said Melanie McCracken, Brand Lead at MARVEL SNAP (Nuverse). "This collaboration brought together superstar talent like Martin Garrix and JVKE and top creatives from across MARVEL to create an epic video about love, and we couldn't be more excited to finally share it with fans."
Starting today, MARVEL SNAP will host a massive in-game "Hero" event featuring special themed rewards, offers, and events. To start, all players that login to MARVEL SNAP will receive a free Storm Hero variant card, illustrated by the original concept artist that worked on the Black Panther and Storm character designs for the Hero video, Jander González Mella. After the one-week free login reward window, the Storm Hero Variant card will be added to the Token Shop as an Ultimate Variant. MARVEL SNAP also launched a limited time 'Hero' variant bundle, available for purchase in-game now, which includes variants of many of the characters featured in the video.
“It was so cool to collaborate with Martin Garrix, JVKE, Second Dinner, Nuverse and The Line Animation to express our collective fandom by diving deep into Marvel history and pack the ‘Hero’ video with fun Easter Eggs,” said Bill Rosemann, VP & Creative Director, Marvel Games. “Martin and JVKE’s song perfectly evokes Marvel’s rich tradition of dramatic romance, while the stylish and authentic range of art in the video’s vignettes likewise celebrates the many art styles that players have come to love in Marvel SNAP.”
The immersive video was crafted by the award-winning London-based animation studio, The Line Animation. The video will be shown at tonight’s The Game Awards, where MARVEL SNAP is nominated for the Best Mobile Game award.
