It is an extended version of the material shown a few years ago and leaves us wanting to see what could have been.
Superman fans have always wondered why there is no good hero in the red cape video game. He is the most powerful superhero and that works against him. For years, attempts have been made to make us forget that tragic Superman 64 and now new material from the project that once led the study is coming to light Factor 5, responsible for games like Star Wars Rogue Squadron or Lair.
It is not the first time that we see material of this Superman: Blue Steel (although it is also known as Superman: Man of Steel, like the movie). The game was in development for a while but it was canceled due to financial problems due to the 2008 financial crisis. Now, we have a new extended version of a footage that was shown several years ago, and that lets us see what this adventure starring Kal-El could offer. The game was going to come alongside the second Bryan Singer-directed film that was never made, but there was material to show its foundations.
The 2008 crash was the kryptonite of this project, which was canceledThe project never made it past the prototype phase despite the fact that in its day it had a development that they catalog had “good form”. The idea of the base is that the last son of Krypton would fight villains strong enough to give players a real challenge, in an adventure developed in an idealized Metropolis with a style of the 40s, with airplanes and elevated roads to give it a touch of its own and more life as we take to the skies.
In the video that we leave you can see how they interacted on stage in a Superman battle throwing all kinds of tanker trucks at Doomsday. But it all came to nothing. Although, if all goes well, we will see the superhero in action in Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League.
