Delighted Friday PlayStation Nation!
Did you hear the significant 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. Far better identified below the mantle of Ms. Marvel, Kamala joins the group as a pivotal catalyst to the original story our group is telling.
Co-made 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 produced her initial look by way of Captain Marvel #14 in August 2013. Winning more than the hearts of comic fans about the globe, 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.
Although we teased young Kamala in our A-Day Prologue Gameplay Footage, (recall the small girl who stumbles on the deck of the Helicarrier?) we felt it essential to maintain her complete part in the game secret till now. We have been waiting for just the correct moment to reveal her, and speak extra 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 one of a kind skills as Ms. Marvel make her a character every single 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 ahead of.”
Kamala is an unapologetic fangirl – a single of the traits we most really like about her. Kamala wears her passion on her sleeve – producing her relatable for a lot of 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 in the course 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 identified as AIM. AIM believes that science – not Super Heroes – is the essential to defending the globe.
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 globe.
Kamala’s unwavering loyalty to the Avengers, intelligence, inquisitive nature, and ever-optimistic character lead to a large 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 come across 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 in the end focused on paying homage to who Kamala is but bringing my personal dash of originality and uniqueness to the part anytime acceptable.”
With this fascinating announcement, Kamala Khan week officially kicks off on our Marvel’s Avengers social channels! Tune in every day to study extra about her one of a kind combat style, Heroic moves (EMBIGGEN!), outfit origin, trivia, and extra.
