Additionally, both games will be platformed to the Nintendo 3DS system as an immersive handheld 3D experience.

"Playing as 'Captain America' with bullets whizzing past in stereoscopic 3D and having a titanic 'Frost Giant' charge straight at you in 'Thor' will bring an unprecedented level of adrenaline to the gameplay experience," said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President Marketing @ SEGA of America.

"When you combine the triple threat of epic gameplay, hall of fame franchises from Marvel, and outstanding 3D visuals, it’s clear that 'Thor: God of Thunder' and 'Captain America: Super Soldier' comprise a new class of super hero game."

"...In 'Thor: God of Thunder', scheduled to street May 3, 2011, players will play as 'Thor' while battling through several of the 'Nine Realms' to save his homeland of 'Asgard'. Players will wield the iconic 'Mj√∂lnir', Thor’s legendary hammer, to fight enemies on an immense scale while controlling the elemental storm powers of lightning, thunder and wind to vanquish enemies. The sweeping vistas, Thor’s devastating hammer throws, and the explosive elemental effects of Thor’s godlike powers will be especially powerful when viewed in 3D.

"...'Captain America: Super Soldier', scheduled for release July 19, 2011, transports players to the darkest days of World War II to face the 'Red Skull' and his 'Hydra' army in an epic action adventure.

"Playing as Captain America and wielding his legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra’s mysterious castle and battle the infamous 'Iron Cross', the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull.
