Turns out the Nintendo Switch really is a game changer as it has been revealed that Nintendo’s newest platform will also receive a Deluxe Edition.
In the past, the Nintendo versions of the LEGO games have gone without, but no more it seems. Furthermore to anyone who pre-orders the Deluxe Edition will also get early access to the Classic Gaurdians of the Galaxy Pack, as well as the main game, Season Pass to all dlc and an exclusive Giant-Man LEGO Minifigure.
As for the importance of Giant-Man, well here’s a couple of comments from Arthir Parsons, the Head of Design at TT Games, explaining just that:
How Giant-Man’s role in the Story came to Be:
Arthur Parsons: Giant-Man is making a massive appearance in “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2,” and the reason he’s involved all revolves around how we wanted to tie the game together. We have a truly epic story spanning multiple Marvel realities and teams of heroes battling the time travelling Kang the Conqueror across Chronopolis, and as such we wanted to ensure that the gigantic scale of the story makes sense to the player. So, we have Giant-Man’s love interest Janet Van Dyne—[aka The] Wasp—directing operations from Avengers Mansion. Given that “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2” features characters from different time periods and realities, we wanted to bring a different version of Hank Pym to the forefront, hence why we picked this version of Giant-Man—aka Goliath. Having the interplay between him and Wasp, as well as a scientific head-to-head with Tony Stark really makes for some great fun.
Giant-Man’s Expanded role:
Arthur Parsons: His role in the game is tremendously important, and he is definitely a character that brings light relief to some very dramatic and serious scenes throughout the game. He is also a vital part as the game builds to a crescendo, where he works with Tony Stark to open a portal rift to…actually I’m at risk of giving spoilers away here so let’s just stick to the fact that he has a colossal role in the “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2” story! You’ll have to wait to see just how substantial that role is.
Will any of you be picking up the Deluxe Edition? Let us know!
