The King of Wakanda Rules Marvel Games
A nation rises February 7.
Long live the King.
As we near Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” film debut on February 16, the King of Wakanda brings all the royal action to Marvel Games! New content inspired by the film heads to “Marvel Contest of Champions,” “Marvel Future Fight,” “Marvel Puzzle Quest,” “Marvel Avengers Academy,” and “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.”
“Marvel Contest of Champions” unveiled Michael B. Jordan’s Challenge. In addition to Erik Killmonger being released on Battlerealm, Thanos’ threat continues to grow across the battlerealm. In a last ditch effort to buy the Illuminati, led by Doctor Strange, some time, Black Panther heads off on a suicide mission to turn the tide of war in the Rise of the Black Panther Quest! Don’t forget to reflect on the teachings of the ancient guardian of the Black Panthers, Bast, with the Trials of the King. Show your skill in the Champion Challenge and earn the rare title of “Wakandan Warrior” by February 21.
“Marvel Future Fight” unleashes three new characters to the game starting today: Shuri, T’Challa’s younger sister and head of the Wakandan Design Group; Killmonger, a new foe to Wakanda with designs on the throne; and Okoye, head of the Dora Milaje and fiercely loyal protector of Wakanda. Alongside the new players comes new costumes for Black Panther.
Wakanda is under attack by H.A.M.M.E.R. and Ultron. T’Challa must travel to his kingdom with his allies to defend its greatest resources in “Marvel Puzzle Quest.” Play against all-new Hazard tiles in this new story event.
“Marvel Avengers Academy” gets a massive update while “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2” will come chock full of characters inspired by the film. Check back next week!
