The LEGO Group, Marvel Entertainment, Warner Bros. Games, and TT Games have just revealed that the popular LEGO Marvel game will finally make its way to the Nintendo Switch on October 5, 2021. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is an 8-year-old port that was released to other consoles like Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows in 2013, except now, the Switch will be joining this lineup of consoles for the first time ever. News of this release was casually announced on Twitter this afternoon and it seems like the game will be the exact version of the LEGO Marvel Super Heros that was released years prior. No news of new features, new characters, or new puzzle-solving scenarios was stated alongside the announcement, so we will have to wait and see if this will be a likelihood.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes’ storyline sees various heroes from the Marvel Universe coming together to defeat Doctor Doom and Loki, who have also recruited other well-known villains to help them take down the heroes and conquer the Earth using the Ray of Doom. With over 100 playable characters, the game quickly rose to the top and became one of LEGO’s best-selling video games of all time. A spin-off titled LEGO Marvel’s Adventures and a sequel titled LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 were released years after the initial became successful.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first news of fans hearing that this installment would be coming to the Switch. In January of 2021, an ESRB leaked the news that LEGO Marvel Super Heros would eventually be coming to the console in the future, showing that the developers and publisher have been sitting on this news for quite some time. Nonetheless, this news and launch mean that the 2013 game will be able to reach a whole new audience by its introduction to the Switch.
