Marvel Games has confirmed Marvel Super War is not a global release title

The wait is finally over; we can all finally stop asking. Marvel Super War will not be coming to the United States or getting a widespread global release.

Since the announcement and limited release of Marvel’s first-ever MOBA game on mobile, fans in the United States and elsewhere in the west have eagerly been awaiting its global release. Unfortunately, it won’t be happening, as confirmed by Marvel Games last week.

After months of fans hounding NetEase Games, Marvel Games finally broke the news. In announcing Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand as new regions open for pre-registration, Marvel Games bluntly stated at the end: “This game is not a global release title.”

In other words, don’t expect to see this game released in the United States or Europe.

As a former League of Legends player and comic book fan, I was really looking forward to playing Marvel Super War. And I know I wasn’t the only one either.

Since Marvel Super War first launched in select SEA regions back in December of last year, fans had been eagerly awaiting a global announcement date. Every new hero post was met with questions about the global release and for eight months these questions went ignored and unanswered.

Patience wore thin and soon frustration took over, which is probably why Marvel Games finally made the announcement that Marvel Super War isn’t getting a global release. It’s incredibly disappointing as initial impressions of the game were pretty solid.

I’m not sure if Marvel Super War was ever intended to launch in the United States or Europe. But if that were the case, why would it take so long for Marvel Games to say something? Or maybe there were initial plans for a global release that fell through and only now could Marvel make the official call.

It’s possible Marvel Super War can still find success in the current regions it’s available in but I would recommend not investing any money into the game if you have downloaded the APK for Android/PC or switched your iTunes region on iOS to skirt the restrictions.

Instead, those of you in the United States or Europe looking to fill that mobile MOBA itch should probably just turn to League of Legends: Wild Rift which recently underwent a closed beta. It’s due out later this year.
