Magneto being the owner of arguably, one of the coolest superpowers ever, it's no surprise MH 2015 is adding him to its villainous roster. As the game's 41st playable character, he'll add not only his ahem...magnetism, but the voice of James Arnold Taylor, known for portraying Ratchet, of Ratchet and Clank fame, and Tidus from Final Fantasy X.
Developer Gazillion certainly seems excited about Magneto's entrance; Ryan Collins, Creative Designer and Community Manager says:
“Magneto feels amazing and has some of the most intense VFXs in the game. Players will see debris float around him and build up as he defeats enemies and destroys environmental objects. In turn, debris becomes a secondary resource that Magneto can use on a variety of powers, including a toggle that automatically fires shrapnel at the nearest enemy. My favorite part to use is Magneto’s Ultimate where he crushes his enemies with three Sentinels and creates a whirlwind of destruction from their parts.”
Magneto will be available as an Eternity Splinter unlock or as a real-money ($17.99) purchase. The Magneto Bundle comes with:
- Magneto Hero
- 2 Costumes (Magneto Marvel NOW! White Costume (Default), Magneto Classic Costume)
- Magneto Hero S.T.A.S.H.
- 6x Fortune Cards (One each of Mark 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6)
- 1 Retcon Device
