Marvel Super Hero Squad Arrives on Nintendo 3DS and uDraw GameTablet

Players Will Smash, Dash and Crash With Their Favorite Super Heroes As They Fight to Save the Universe from Doctor Doom’s Evil Forces

AGOURA HILLS, Calif.--()--THQ (NASDAQ: THQI) brings the action and excitement of Marvel Super Hero Squad to life this fall with two new titles – Comic Combat, scheduled for release Nov. 15 and The Infinity Gauntlet, scheduled to debut Oct. 11 on Nintendo 3DS™.

Available exclusively on uDraw GameTablet® for Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 and Wii™, Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat puts the artist’s pen in players’ hands, enabling them to draw directly into the game world and determine the fate of the Squaddies.

For the first time ever, players will use the uDraw™ stylus to command Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and seven other Marvel Super Heroes in the battle against Doctor Doom and his evil cohorts. The uDraw GameTablet allows players to direct attacks, wield weapons and build barricades in the Marvel Super Hero Squad universe. Players can even shake the uDraw GameTablet to create an in-game earthquake!

Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat also features a distinctive cel-shaded comic book art style that brings the characters to life, as well as a variety of challenging new stages, including The Helicarrier, Baxter Building, The Vault and Sanctum Sanctorum.

“The uDraw GameTablet gives players the ability to direct and control their favorite super heroes in a completely new way,” said Executive Producer Peter Armstrong. “As the comic artist you are able to command each hero and utilize their unique abilities for the first time ever using the power of the pen."

Also scheduled to arrive this fall is Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet on Nintendo 3DS™. Fans of the original game can now “hero up” in eye-popping 3-D as they command all the classic Squaddies, as well as four new recruits: Captain America, Nova, Black Widow and She-Hulk.

In this adventure, players will find themselves tapping into their super powers and super smarts to stop Doctor Doom’s Lethal Legion. The Super Hero Squad must use every ability at their disposal to secure the six infinity stones and prevent the impending apocalypse!

Boasting a total of 12 playable heroes, The Infinity Gauntlet also features two new levels in which players can turn the tables and play as Dr. Doom, Magneto, Loki and Abomination for the first time ever.

Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat is scheduled for release Nov. 15 on uDraw GameTablet for Xbox 360, uDraw GameTablet for PlayStation 3 and uDraw GameTablet for Wii. Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet is scheduled for release Oct. 11 on Nintendo 3DS.
