Captain America: Super Soldier has been announced for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS and PSP release in 2011.

Naturally, the game is being developed to coincide with the upcoming Captain American movie in development by Marvel who is also making the upcoming Thor film and Thor videogame.

As always with Marvel film properties, Sega will be handling development duties, just like it did for the Iron Man 2 and Incredible Hulk videogames.

Here’s the first trailer for Captain America: Super Soldier.

“Videogame players the world over can now become Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Captain America,” said Gary Knight, senior VP of marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America.

“Captain America: Super Soldier puts players in the boots of the ultimate Super-Soldier, wielding Captain America’s legendary shield. Working closely with Marvel ensures we’re delivering the calibre product that gamers and comic fans deserve and it’s a partnership we’re proud of here at SEGA.”

Players will become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his army in an epic third- person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s 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. As the First Avenger himself, players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.

Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls. Players will be able to launch shield-first into the fray with the superior force of the world’s first Super-Soldier at their fingertips—and they’ll need every bit of that strength to overcome a castle that’s both an acrobatic playground for the Captain’s physical prowess and a house of mystery with enemies and danger at every turn.

The original story for Captain America: Super Soldier is being penned by noted comic, film, and TV writer Christos Gage. The primary writer for the Marvel’s Avengers: The Initiative series of comics, Gage has written numerous books for major Marvel characters, including Siege: Captain America, Iron Man, X-Men, Spider-Man, Civil War: House of M, and Union Jack.

Gage wrote his original story for Captain America: Super Soldier so that the setting exists within the same world as the upcoming movie of the same name, but he infused the game with immersive twists designed to enhance gameplay with all-new cinematic action sequences.

The preeminent Super Hero introduced during the WWII era, Captain America was created by the legendary team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941. The iconic hero actually predates the Marvel name by 20 years, first being issued by the company’s predecessor, Timely Publications (later known as Atlas Comics). Over 200 million Captain America issues have been sold in 75 countries and the shield-wielding hero is a key member of the Avengers alongside comic book icons The Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor starting in The Avengers #4 in 1964.

Directed by Joe Jonston, the film Captain America: The First Avenger film stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull, Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Chester Phillips, and Stanley Tucci as Abraham Erskine.It’s set for release in July 2011, with the game’s release expected to coincide with the film’s debut.
