DC Animated Series "Young Justice" Coming to Consoles and Handheld

Cartoon Network's Young Justice was one of the surprises of last year's new crop of animated series. Focusing on the sidekicks of the more well-known DC superheroes, it's got an interesting mix of angst, melodrama, and action while not going too far off-model in terms of design and characterization and of its young cast. Well, the series is getting its own multiplatform game release early next year from Little Orbit games.

More about the 2013 release after the jump.

With the release almost a full year out, there aren't a ton of details in the Little Orbit press release about Young Justice: Legacies, however we do know it will take place between the first and second seasons with a script by the show's writers, Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti. The gameplay will include online and local multiplayer (while no style of gameplay has been announced, I'm going to go with third-person brawler of some sort). It'll be hitting both the 360 and PS3 at launch and curiously, the Wii and DS (as opposed to their respective successors).

Young Justice will be back on the Cartoon Network March 3rd at 10:30 AM EST as part of their DC Nation animated block of programming.
