Marvel Mystery Panel: Netmarble and Marvel to reveal new game at PAX East 2020

Tune in to the Marvel Mystery Panel at PAX East for a first look at the brand new Marvel mobile game from developer Netmarble.

While the coronavirus has scared off multiple video game publishers and developers from attending PAX East this week, Netmarble will be showing up hosting a panel alongside Marvel on March 1, titled Marvel Mystery Panel.  What mysteries will be revealed you ask? Well, according to a teaser announcement, Netmarble and Marvel will be revealing a new mobile game

Details are being kept under wraps for now, but we’ll get our first at the game when the panel begins on Sunday, March 1 at 3:30 p.m. ET. The teaser did mention the word “revolution” a few times, so perhaps that’s a hint?

For five years, more than 120 million players around the world have battled to prevent a dangerous era from dawning in the hit mobile game MARVEL Future Fight. Now that chaotic tomorrow arrives as Marvel Games and Netmarble team up once again to unleash an all-new game! Join game creators from Marvel Games and Netmarble as they discuss how they united to craft an innovative new game that will soon have players around the world swept up in a revolution!

An accompanying image also featured key art that strongly resembled Doctor Strange. It looks like he may have a key role in the game or its premise.

As Netmarble is one of the leading mobile game companies, it’s no surprise that the game is being created for phones and presumably tablets. The company is responsible for some of the most successful mobile games, including Lineage 2: Revolution, Blade & Soul Revolution, BTS WORLD, Everybody’s Marble, and Seven Knights. They are also responsible for one of the most popular Marvel mobile action RPG, MARVEL Future Fight.

Marvel is no stranger to the mobile gaming space. Beyond MARVEL Future Fight, we’ve got games like MARVEL Strike Force, MARVEL Contest of Champions and, most recently, MARVEL Super War. The latter game on the list is a mobile MOBA from NetEase that still hasn’t been released globally yet.

There was also MARVEL Battle Lines from Nexon, which was a decent attempt at a collectible card-battling game but, unfortunately, it was short-lived and shut down in January 2020. Clearly, not every mobile game with the Marvel brand means automatic success. Still, there’s no shortage of Marvel mobile games currently available, so it will be interesting to see what kind of space this new game tries to carve out for itself.

The Marvel Mystery Panel will be hosted by Ryan Penagos, VP and Creative Executive of Marvel New Media. Bill Rosemann (Vice President and Head of Creative at Marvel Games), Danny Koo (Director, Production at Marvel Games), Marc Sumerak (Writer, Marvel Comics), and Simon Sim (President, Netmarble US) will be featured panelists.
