We're Not The Biggest Captain America Fans, But We Have That Shield Is Rad.

The game's due sometime next year, despite being outed in a Marvel financial over a year ago.

“Videogame players the world over can now become Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Captain America,” said Gary Knight, senior VP of marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America.

“Captain America: Super Soldier puts players in the boots of the ultimate Super-Soldier, wielding Captain America’s legendary shield. Working closely with Marvel ensures we’re delivering the calibre product that gamers and comic fans deserve and it’s a partnership we’re proud of here at SEGA.”

Players will be up against the Red Skull and his unwieldy army. Interestingly, the game is set during World War II and is described as an action-adventure title. The press release notes that players will engage in “free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra’s mysterious castle and battle the infamous Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull".

Honestly it could be kind of cool. But going by the legacy SEGA's set with their treatment of Iron-Man, we're not going to hold our breath until we've seen more.
