Any of you out there remember “Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects”? That was the Nihilistic-developed fighter borne out the short-lived EA-Marvel Comics relationship in the middle of the decade. Well, according to video and screens unearthed by Siliconera, EA planned another fighting game with menus hearkening back to Marvel’s comic past.
The game was under development by the “Def Jam: Icon” studio EA Chicago–does that mean we might have seen a 3D brawler with destructible environments? EA’s been out of the straight-up fighting game scene for a while, and EA Chicago closed its doors back in ’07. Meanwhile, Marvel renewed their relationship with Capcom in resurrecting the “MvC” while building ties with Activision (and beginning and ending one with SEGA).
Head over to Siliconera to check out more screens and video to see what might have been.
