“Young Justice” had its season — and possible series — finale earlier this month, much to the disappointment of longtime fans of the DC Comics animated series on Cartoon Network. While the continuing adventures in DC’s “Young Justice” ongoing comic series have also come to an end, there’s still one more piece of “Young Justice” mythology still to come. Developer Little Orbit has released the box art for its upcoming game “Young Justice: Legacy,” which helps fill in the five-year gap between season one and season two.
“We wanted this to feel important. Honestly, I don’t think Greg [Weisman] and Brandon [Vietti] would have been as on board if we didn’t have these show hooks at the level of integration that we got,” Little Orbit CEO Matthew Scott told CBR in February. “As ‘Young Justice’ winds up, and obviously there’s still episodes airing every week right now, I think for us, the importance of getting this right has gone through the roof. This will likely be one of the last things that fans get to play and experience that’s got an epic, cool storyline with all the voice talent from the show. It’s important for us to get it right.”
According to the game’s Facebook page, Little Orbit designed the image and worked with WB Animation on the lineart with colors by Steve Firchow. The developer has also posted rough early box art designs in black and white. The game is currently set for a September 2013 release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC and Nintendo 3DS.
