The lights are on
Some said a collaboration between Marvel and TT Games could never happen. Apparently, nobody told the studio behind the popular series of Lego games. After all, Warner Bros. is the parent company of both TT Games and DC Comics, which made many people assume that a Marvel Lego game was off the table. As our cover story shows, those people were wrong. Our February issue delves into Lego Marvel Super Heroes, a new game that’s the result of those unlikely partnerships. Our extended feature focuses on all things Lego, including the exciting new Marvel game, a deeper look at Lego City Undercover, and loads of information about the studio that started it all.
Above: Watch our trailer for the upcoming month of Lego Marvel Super Heroes coverage.
Elsewhere in the issue, we’ve got new previews of long-awaited games including Gears of War: Judgment and Crysis 3. Tim Turi also helps us celebrate Mega Man’s 25th anniversary with a four-page Classic GI feature. Twenty-five years? Has it really been that long? That’s all in addition to the reviews, columns, and other exclusive information you’ve come to expect from Game Informer.
Take a look at our cover below.

i was so depressed when the deal went through before spiderman 3, so we lost out on that set. soo glad this is happening
This could be the best super hero game EVER!
That's steak sauce!!
Well Lego Lord of the Rings was fantastic so here's hoping they knock it out of the park again.
I like the 1st 3 words and marvel, but I was hoping for some other game. Didn't they just do LOTR Also?
Now this I can get into.
Lego hulk smashing legos! brilliant.
Firstly - awesome cover. Lego Lord of the Rings was my GOTY 2012, the kiddiness actually made me like it even more due to the over-abundance of ultra-violence in current games and Lego Middle Earth was wonderful. Also, love Marvel so bring this on!
Secondly - Assuming this is for current-gen consoles? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Thirdly - Are GI doing cover reveals on Tuesdays instead of Thursdays now? Both this and last issue were revealed on Tuesday. Is it a permanent change or just a convenience for the holiday break?
Nice cover! I have a good feeling that this game will be just as good as LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes or even better! I really can't wait to see some gameplay footage! If I like it, I'll just buy it for the Wii U I'm getting this summer (yes, it was confirmed for the Wii U).
I think this magazine will be kept in mint condition!!
Awesome! The only Lego games I've played so far are Lego Batman 1 & 2. Both are extremely fun and humorous, my son's crazy about them. I'm glad WB, TT Games and Marvel could get together and make it happen.
I am so looking forward to this. Just finished LEGO Lotr this past weekend and I was looking forward to news about the next big LEGO license.
If Deadpool isn't voiced by Nolan North, I SWEAR.... eh, we're getting a Deadpool game anyways, so I won't be mad. Woo Lego! It's pretty awesome that they have voice acting in the Lego games now; I can't wait to see how the TT writers tackle the Marvel heroes' banter between each other.
This was pretty unexpected, but pretty cool nonetheless. I have yet to play any of the Lego games though, I really wanna try out the Lord of the Rings one after reading Joe's review for it. Can't wait for the next issue!
I really want to play another Lego game and Undercover for Wii u was going to be it. Now I want to play this one as well.
I'd rather we got the cancelled FPS/platforming/brawler/co-op hybrid THQ game, but I imagine this will at least be fun.
Also, am I the only person who's still waiting for that level editor from Indy 2 to become available to the rest of the franchises? It was supposed to be in LEGO Star Wars III, but we all know how Lucas Arts related titles like to drop half their features before release.
LEGO DC vs Marvel. Make it happen, TT.
