Marvel MMO To Target Younger Gamers

While many MMO gamer eyes may be transfixed on DC Universe Online, Marvel Super Hero Squad Online has a very good chance at commanding its own large fanbase in short order.

Much like last year’s Marvel Super Hero Squad, this MMO spin-off is skewing a little younger, which few MMOs aim to do. The ability to actually play as popular Marvel comic book characters is another huge boon, as DCUO runs the risk of alienating players who don’t want to play the role of Superman’s little buddy. Previewer Kyle Horner (of PC World) came to the conclusion that if Gazillion can manage to work out a free model for SHSO, it could be a dark horse MMO hit in 2011.
