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.

When I was a kid i always wanted a lego marvel game. I might have to buy this one.
I was wondering what they were going to do after Lego: Lord of the Rings. Very neat and somewhat unexpected reveal!
I did not expect a lego game to be on the cover of GI.
Nice. It looks like a great cover.
If it's like the last DC Comics game, I will pass. I love the properties, but Superman made the game not fun. After awhile it just stop being entertaining, sad because I was really into the idea of the game. Hopefully they will do more with the game and improve on the mechanics of the series. I give them credit, TT does good work. For me, last year wasn't as fun as I'd like.
Oh Wolverine my sweet, we shall meet each other in the gaming genre yet again
My nephew's will go crazy for this.
Awesome information on Lego City Undercover you say? Yes! finally so excited for that game! lol i know it's really sad for a 21 year old male to be excited for Lego City Undercover of all things but so far the look of it gives me heavy nostalgia for Lego Island so i really hope it turns out good :)
Really? Lol my first issue EVER will be this... Thats awesome.
looks great i hope it comes out soon
This is the cover I am least excited about since I started subscribing, not critizing, I see why you would put it on there, just not my thing.
Sweet can't wait for this one, hope it turns out good!
ooh~ a lego version eh. interesting.
Will be aweomsome to play this one and the DC one side by side.
To be honest, its just going to be like every other Lego game. Which isn't a bad thing as long as they keep adding to the pile of unlockables and features.
YES! This game is going to rock!
