Developer Little Orbit has pushed back the release of the Young Justice: Legacy video game from Sept. 10 to Nov. 19, World’s Finest reports. With the shift, it will now be available for Wii and Nintendo 3DS, in addition to the previously announced PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii-U and Nintendo DS consoles and PC.
“They will have the same original story line written by [producers] Greg [Weisman] and Brandon [Vietti], but will take advantage of the touch screen ability offered by Nintendo,” a Little Orbit representative told the website. “We know fans have been waiting a long time for this game, but the doubling of available platforms is something fans have been asking for and we are happy that we are able to make it happen.”
Based on the Cartoon Network animated series, which was canceled earlier this year, Young Justice: Legacy is an action RPG set in the five-year gap between the first and second seasons. Players control multiple characters in a squad as they pursue a group of the Light’s most notorious villains in an effort to rescue renowned archaeologist Dr. Helena Sandsmark.
With less than two weeks until the second-season premiere of Young Justice, Little Orbit and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced a video game based on the Cartoon Network series.
Arriving in early 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Young Justice: Legacy is set between seasons 1 and 2 of the animated series, with an original storyline by show producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti.
Inspired by the DC Comics series of the same name, Young Justice premiered in November 2010, with teen heroes Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis serving as the covert-operations team of the Justice League while also honing their skills under the watchful eyes of their mentors. DC launched a new Young Justice comic series last year based on the cartoon.
