Sega is working on a Captain America video game to coincide with next year’s big-screen movie, but Sega says it’s not an exact “game of the movie,” though it is set within the world of the movie. Which means these great-looking screenshots and conceptual artwork are indicative of the look and feel that the movie will have. Of particular interest to the faithful should be the renderings of Arnim Zola and the war machine of Hydra.
Captain America: Super Soldier is described as a third-person platformer that uses “a highly athletic combat system” where Cap’s iconic shield will be the key to his attack, defense, puzzle-solving, and wall-scaling maneuvers. Comic book writer Cristos Gage has penned the game’s original story, which finds Cap infiltrating a Wolfenstein-like castle that’s being used as a secret Hydra base during World War II. The Red Skull is expected to put in an appearance, as is Iron Cross and lots of other well-known enemies.
Sega will release Captain America: Super Soldier next year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii, and Nintendo DS. There’s no word yet on whether or not cast members from the film like Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving will voice their video game counterparts.
