Granted, nobody is going to confuse Supes for Mortal Kombat's Scorpion anytime soon, but there's more to the combo system in Superman Returns than just mindless button mashing. As Superman Returns' supervising producer Jeff Peters told us, the game doesn't skimp on "canned" combos (with six and seven, and even up to 10-hit combo strings), and it also leaves room for players to create their own attacks organically. "We wanted to give the player control over what kind of combo [they] wanted to do," Peters said. This includes your standard punch attacks, and also grabs and throws, flying into the air, picking up objects, and mixing in Superman's impressive arsenal of powers such as heat vision and freezing breath.
The videogame will be released on November 20, and is available for pre-order now.
