Delighted Friday PlayStation Nation!
Did you hear the huge news out of the Marvel Games panel at New York Comic Con? Crystal Dynamics is ecstatic to round out the Marvel’s Avengers roster with the inclusion of New Jersey teenager Kamala Khan. Much better recognized below the mantle of Ms. Marvel, Kamala joins the group as a pivotal catalyst to the original story our group is telling.
Co-produced by G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona, Sana Amanat, and Stephen Wacker, Kamala is the Pakistani-American teenager who defends her hometown Jersey City as the costumed Ms. Marvel. If you want to study up about Kamala Khan, she created her 1st look by means of Captain Marvel #14 in August 2013. Winning more than the hearts of comic fans about the planet, Kamala headlined her personal month-to-month comic series beginning in February of 2014. You can study her present ongoing month-to-month series as nicely.
When we teased young Kamala in our A-Day Prologue Gameplay Footage, (don’t forget the small girl who stumbles on the deck of the Helicarrier?) we felt it vital to maintain her complete function in the game secret till now. We have been waiting for just the suitable moment to reveal her, and speak a lot more about her narrative arc in the aftermath of A-Day.
Shaun Escayg – Inventive Director and Writer at Crystal Dynamics – explains it nicely. “Telling our story of Kamala’s coming-of-age brings a fresh, hopeful viewpoint to the gameplay knowledge and her exclusive skills as Ms. Marvel make her a character each and every particular person will want to play. Kamala Khan is the defining ingredient that tends to make our game stand apart from any Avengers story you have seasoned just before.”
Kamala is an unapologetic fangirl – one particular of the traits we most really like about her. Kamala wears her passion on her sleeve – creating her relatable for several of us at the studio, and for fellow fans worldwide. Fandom is even the catalyst to her coming-of-age story. Invited to A-Day as an Avengers fan-fiction contest finalist, young Kamala is exposed to Terrigen Mist for the duration of the unanticipated attack.
Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor blame themselves for the mass devastation and the loss of Captain America. In the 5 years following A-Day, the Avenger’s absence has devastating consequences worldwide. A secretive, new organization has risen – Sophisticated Notion Mechanics, otherwise recognized as AIM. AIM believes that science – not Super Heroes – is the important to guarding the planet.
Now a teenager, Kamala finds herself establishing extraordinary polymorphic and healing powers as a direct outcome of the A-day incident. With the Avengers disbanded and Sophisticated Notion Mechanics turning public sentiment against Super Heroes, Kamala hides her skills from the planet.
Kamala’s unwavering loyalty to the Avengers, intelligence, inquisitive nature, and ever-optimistic character lead to a massive discovery when she uncovers a shocking conspiracy. As Kamala learns to harness and embrace her powers, she finds the will and the way to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Joining our stellar overall performance cast as Kamala Khan is Sandra Saad, who brings the character’s strength and spirit to the motion capture stage. “Kamala’s a tremendous inspiration to me,” shared Sandra. “She’s so relatable, and I believe we can all uncover elements of ourselves in her. So, at the finish of the day, playing her ended up feeling like I was playing a super version of myself. I eventually focused on paying homage to who Kamala is but bringing my personal dash of originality and uniqueness to the function anytime suitable.”
With this fascinating announcement, Kamala Khan week officially kicks off on our Marvel’s Avengers social channels! Tune in each day to understand a lot more about her exclusive combat style, Heroic moves (EMBIGGEN!), outfit origin, trivia, and a lot more.
We cannot wait for you to suit up as Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, The Hulk, and Kamala Khan when Marvel’s Avengers launches on Might 15, 2020. Very best component? The narrative will continue to be delivered on an ongoing basis, with each and every new Super Hero and area delivered at no added expense. This is what’s subsequent for the Avengers.
