Get ready for more Marvel on your phone. Today, FoxNext Games and Marvel Entertainment revealed Marvel Strike Force, a squad-based mobile RPG that will heroically take even more of your money. I don't think the game's description will surprise you. In Marvel Strike Force you collect various Marvel characters, create your team, and enjoy some strategic combat (which you can see in the teaser below). In the process, you'll collect new gear and upgrades to make your team even stronger and take down S.H.I.E.L.D. So, nothing too surprising or original in this game, but that doesn't mean it won't be lots of fun and great fan service.

Pre-registrations for both iOS and Android are already open, and if you pre-register, you get 500 Power Cores, 50,000 Gold, and a 3-Star Daredevil to get you started. If you're planning on playing the game, you should definitely pre-register. I expect Marvel Strike Force to do quite well given how Marvel can (almost) do no wrong in movie theaters, which has really helped the franchise's popularity with your average gamer. Expect the game to land next year.

    Man, just to pre-register you have to give them both your e-mail and your facebook account. I guess I'll just wait for the game to come out without the goodies.

      Yeah, that was a little jarring. Whatever happened to just giving your email address? Also, preregistration for a mobile game? Brave new world, indeed.

        Preregistration for mobile games isn't new, especially with high-profile games or publishers. Disney in particular has been doing it for years.

        ...the more you know. This was my first time encountering the practice. I had previously followed the release of the Injustice 2 app, but don't recall there being any sort of pre-launch registration or incentives.

        When I started TestFlight/Shadow Gun:Legends they ask for my Apple ID. I declined this because this is private info so I didn't send my Apple ID but it seems that it wasn’t a reason to exclude me from the Shadowgun Legends beta because of this,I am always surprised how easy some people give their private info just to beta test a game.

        Yeah, it's exactly why I setup a 2nd Facebook account. One strictly for mobile gaming.

    Many recent pre-registered games have either not given any of the rewards, or given everybody the rewards, whether they pre-registered or not. Wonder if this Avengers Alliance 3: Rinse & Repeat will actually work. I’m hesitant since every Marvel squad turn-based RPG I enjoyed has died.

      This is basically Star Wars Galaxy Of Heroes with marvel characters if it's anything like that it should be a really great game based on team synergy. The character menu lay out & shards were literally ripped right from Star Wars if it's anything like that this game should be amazing, Every character in Star Wars is pretty much farmable, the only issue with Star Wars is the price of IAP Purchases crystals & packs are way too expensive & only cater to whales

        But we’ve already had Avengers Alliance, which was similar, then Avengers Alliance 2, which was more similar... and there’s Future Fight, which is more action but otherwise similar. How many squad based RPG-like games can Marvel put out there before people get so tired of their games getting shut down, they stop playing the newest one?!? I’m tempted, but have squandered too much time in Avengers Alliance, which I now look back on as time wasted.

    I've learned that whenever TA posts these articles about signing up for games soon to be released, that usually they are soft launched somewhere. Sure enough, this one is out in New Zealand. Not sure where else, but there is an event right now where you can get Electra. So if you are interested, you can check it out now.

      Marvels version of DC Legends right?
