As if the skilled developers behind May's upcoming "Iron Man 2: The Video Game" didn't load the title up with enough tremendous talent, the blockbuster game also boasts some super-sized voice talent!
Celebrated actors Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson have officially signed on to "Iron Man 2: The Video Game," reprising their roles from Marvel Studios' upcoming "Iron Man 2" blockbuster movie. Cheadle voices Tony Stark's close friend and confidant James "Rhodey" Rhodes--the man inside the ultra-powerful War Machine armor--while Jackson joins the game as S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury.
Cheadle and Jackson bring their inimitable talents to the table, rounding out a cast of characters that transports fans into a deeply immersive and authentic cinematic video game experience. Melding characters, themes and ideas from Shellhead's movie and comic book worlds, "Iron Man 2: The Video Game" allows gamers to choose between playing as Iron Man or War Machine as they battle through massively destructible indoor and outdoor environments. Tony and Rhodey both come armed to the teeth with their own distinct assortments of fully-customizable, gadgets and weaponry, as well as vicious melee combat moves. Believe us, you'll need everything in their arsenals to battle the likes of Crimson Dynamo and other classic Marvel foes.
"With an original story line, an exclusive new song tied in to an incredible soundtrack and the voices of Hollywood's top leading men, 'Iron Man 2: The Video Game'
offers a video game experience that has something for any kind of gamer," said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America. "With the intuitive new control system, this game brings fans of all ages and gaming abilities an Iron Man experience they can enjoy."
