Square Enix has released the gameplay trailer for Ms. Marvel, who is joining the roster of Marvel's Avengers video game as the main protagonist.
Previous trailers suggested that one day the Avengers fail, which leads to Captain America’s death and the team’s break-up. Five years later, Kamala finds the narrative’s inciting, as she discovers a secret, villainous AIM plot that kicks the team back into shape and into action.
The character, created in 2013 by Sana Amanat, G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona, will play a large role in the game, not only as one of only six playable characters, but as the hero the game's plot centers around. A Pakistani American teen from Jersey City, she’s the perfect down-to-earth, relatable character to ground a story caught up in myths and heroes.
Though she is initially seen wearing street clothes, Kamala eventually dons an incredibly comic-accurate costume in the game, adorned with bright reds and blues and highlights of gold. And as fans know, after seeing so many comic book adaptations toning-down the bold color palettes of comics for adaptations, it’s rewarding to see such a faithful adaptation.
Developed by Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, Marvel's Avengers features Nolan North as Iron Man, Troy Baker as Bruce Banner, Laura Bailey as Black Widow, Jeff Schine as Captain America, Travis Willingham as Thor and Sandra Saad as Kamala Khan. The game is scheduled to be released on May 15, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.
