Remember a while back when Marvel sued Cryptic for alleged infringement of copyright, because Cryptic featured superheroes in their City of Heroes MMO?
How about this: 18 months later and in a perfect hatred-to-lurve switcheroo, Marvel have now teamed up with Cryptic to produce a massively multiplayer superhero MMO baby for PC and Xbox 360. There's a rom-com in that, I swear.
...sez 1Up, reporting from X06 in Barthelona.
1Up goes on to worry about how users will input text for chat purposes with no keyboard, and whether we'll be able to streamline the UI like we currently can in World of Warcraft. This game is unlikely to see the light of day for at least three years, and I'm guessing they'll have bigger things to worry about by then, like how to manage RealFace customisation, or how many user-generated voice mods can be uploaded for LiveVoice modulation, or how to map spellcasts to gestural movements for the Xbox 360 DigiFingaz wireless glove controllers...
Yay, the future!
