'Young Justice: Legacy' Video Game Will Hit Consoles In 2013

Game publisher Little Orbit announced that they have entered in to a licensing agreement with Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment to bring Young Justice: Legacy to game consoles in 2013.

According to the press release, the game will be available for the PS3, XBOX 360, Nintendo Wii and DS.  There is no news yet whether this will also be available for the PS Vita or computer systems.  There is still a year until game launch so we may see these platforms added.  

This news comes just a little over a week before the new season of the hit animated series Young Justice: Legacy begins on the Cartoon Network.  Fans of the show can rejoice in the notion that the series writers, Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti, have worked on the games storyline.  The story is said to take place between seasons 1 and 2 of the series.

The press release goes on to say that:

The game is packed with fan favorite playable characters, cameo appearances by popular Justice League heroes and villains, and includes online multiplayer as well as local multiplayer modes.

"The TV series is a fantastic combination of compelling writing, witty humor, iconic art, and exciting action sequences. The creators have done an amazing job blending over 180 DC Comics characters into their show filtered through a new, youthful perspective," said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit. "The new video game contains a slew of cool features and a large playable cast of familiar heroes, but our core mission is to create a unique experience that fits seamlessly into the world of the show and offers a new way to interact with these popular DC Comics characters."

There is currently no official street date for Young Justice: Legacy, only that it will launch in early 2013.  Perhaps we'll have more news once E3 rolls around later this year.
