Marvel Multiverse RPG coming in 2022
If you have been following The Game Nexus for the past 5 years you will know that I am a massive Role Playing Game affection ado. Not only do I run Dungeons and Dragons sessions for a living but I also have 35 years of playing games like it under my belt. Growing up in the 80's was a grand time to be a young gamer of RPG's and Dungeons and Dragons wasn't the only game to choose from like many think.
One of my most cherished games from my youth was the Marvel Super Heroes Role Playing Game. This was followed by numerous attempts over the years to emulate its success but sadly nothing was ever printed that had the lasting impact on players like the original game did.
The original game is so popular that to this day people are still playing it and creating source material for it. Long out of print the game lives on in the hearts and minds of the gamer's of that generation.
My review of the original classic Marvel Super Heroes RPG
Imagine my excitement when I discovered that a new edition being published by Marvel themselves will be arriving in early 2022. While no information other than the press release ( Below) has been revealed it goes without saying that the time is right for a new edition of the game. With Super heroics at an all time high across movies and streaming services I cant think of a better game to tap into everyone's love of Role Playing Games and the Marvel universe.
Now I just have to find a way to contain my excitement over the next nine months until it is released...
