Good Work, Soldier! ‘Captain America: Super Soldier’ Brings the Fight to WWII

Vibranium shield? Check. Super soldier serum? Check. Kicking the asses of the Iron Cross, HYDRA, and Red Skull? That’s a big check.

SEGA announced today via press release that they are bringing the first Avenger, Captain America, to consoles and handhelds in Captain America: Super Soldier.  Releasing in concordance with the upcoming Captain America film, Captain America: Super Soldier is a third-person action adventure title that (at least from the text of the press release) sounds like its taking a few pointers from Batman: Arkham Asylum in terms of gameplay.

Super Soldier allows players to take the mantle of the all-American hero as he faces the forces of Red Skull set in the darkest days of World War II.  Armed with the Captain’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in a “highly athletic” free-flowing combat system: combining melee combos, shield attacks, and acrobatics to combat the megalomaniacal Red Skull and his cronies.

Primary writer for Avengers: The Initiative, Christos Gage is charged with writing the original story for the game, which will hopefully ensure that the game will prove more solid than most other movie-related video games.

Captain America: Super Soldier is scheduled for release in 2011 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo DS.
