Chris Evans as The First Avenger

(Gamespot) – Captain America: The First Avenger is scheduled for release on July 22, and it will see Fantastic Four actor Chris Evans stepping into the superheroic boots of a new masked champion. Making use of its Marvel Entertainment license, Sega expects to release a game tie-in for the film, and the publisher announced today that the live-action star will also lend his voice and likeness to the publisher’s adaptation, Captain America: Super Soldier.

Super Soldier will be based on the Captain America film, which also stars Tommy Lee Jones (No Country for Old Men) and Samuel L. Jackson (Iron Man 2). Hearkening back to the comic franchise’s roots, Nazis will be the target of Captain America’s ire, as the shield-wielding hero squares off against his archnemesis, Red Skull, in an effort to stop the evil machinations of the scientist Arnim Zola.

Beginning during the height of WWII, the third-person action adventure will be set in a sprawling castle complex and will feature foes from the comic books, including the Iron Cross and members of the terrorist group HYDRA. Gameplay will have an emphasis on hand-to-hand combat involving the superhero’s indestructible shield as well as platforming sequences.

Captain Amercia is coming to your console.

Sega announces comic book hero will return to his propaganda roots to fight Nazis on Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, Wii, and DS next year

Super Soldier Captain American will be facing off against his nemesis, the Nazi agent Red Skull in 2011 on your consoles. Set during the height of WWII, the third-person action adventure will be laid out in a sprawling castle complex that will feature foes from the comic books, including the Iron Cross and members of the terrorist group HYDRA. Gameplay will have a heavy emphasis on hand-to-hand combat involving the Cap’s indestructible shield as well as platforming sequences.

Sega is taking the shield-wielding hero back to his WWII beginnings in the forthcoming game Captain America: Super Soldier. The game is based on the eponymous film, which stars Chris Evans (Fantastic 4), Tommy Lee Jones (No Country for Old Men), and Samuel L. Jackson (Iron Man 2). The movie has been titled Captain America: First Avenger.

Let’s hope next year is not too soon for our favorite Amercian hero, we’d hate to see another horrible ‘movie-to-game massacre’.
