All Articles: Thor: God of Thunder

New Releases: MotorStorm Apocalypse, Thor, More

May 3rd, 2011… a day that will be remembered as the day the world should have ended. The day Duke Nukem Forever would have been released. OK, it’s not quite that bleak, the Duke is still on track for a June return. But still…

Anyway, this week still has plenty of world-ending events as Sony will release MotorStorm Apocalypse for the PS3. Sadly, due to the ApocalyPS3, online play through the PSN might not be in the cards on launch day.

Sticking with the end of the world theme is Asgard’s herald of the heavens, The Mighty Thor! He’ll headline his first film this Friday, but you can also check out the tie-in game, Thor: God of Thunder, on the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 this week.

Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)

Captain America, Thor games go 3D, get new trailers

Captain America and Thor will be hammering into movie theaters this summer in Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, but Sega is also giving gamers the chance to control these titans of the Marvel universe in two tie-in games as well.

Yesterday, the publisher announced that Thor: God of Thunder would be released for the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 on May 3. They’ve also given a July 19th release date to Captain America: Super Soldier, which is also coming to the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. A 3DS version is planned for both titles, but it won’t be ready until each movie hits Blu-ray/DVD this Fall.

And speaking of 3D, Sega has also revealed that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of both games will be playable in stereoscopic 3D. Because nothing says “duck!” like seeing Mjolnir or Cap’s Shield thrown directly at the screen.

Each game will support multiple 3D viewing options including anaglyph color mode using red and blue glasses for conventional displays, Side-by-Side & Top-Bottom modes for active shutter glasses and 3D televisions, and the higher resolution Frame Packing mode for HDMI 1.4 3D displays only on the PS3.

In celebration of the release date announcement, Sega has unveiled a new trailer for each game. Check them out after the break. (more…)
