We’ve already seen him don the giant “A” and wield the shield in the trailer for the upcoming film. But now, Chris Evans is getting to stretch his acting chops into the world of video games as he voices his character in the upcoming release from SEGA: Captain America: Super Soldier.
No other voice talent has been announced for the game but with Evans leading the charge, you can expect SEGA to probably pull in his fellow cast members too. From the press release we know the game takes place around the time of World War II, in tandem with the film’s plot. Here’s the official synopsis:
In Captain America: Super Soldier, players become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his Hydra army in an epic third-person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate a mysterious castle overtaken by Hydra forces, where they’ll battle a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull, including the infamous Iron Cross, Baron Strucker and Madame Hydra. Players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.
The game is set for release later this year, closer to the time Captain America: First Avenger hits theaters. It will be available for all major gaming consoles.
