Eidos-Montreal recently uploaded a video to their official YouTube channel where they share insight into the character designs for the upcoming Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy video game which is set to release on October 26, 2021. We have included the full developer video above for your review.
Marvel’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy is a title that hasn’t received much excitement from fans, but I am excited for this title for several reasons. The first is the overall story, and the worlds that we will explore in game. Square Enix is known for their story telling ability so it will be exciting to see where this story takes us.
What is a video game nowadays without colorful costumes, and with this recent announcement Square Enix has assured us that the overall character costumes will stay faithful to their comic book counterparts, but the developers will add their own elements based on the characters backstory.
When designing the Guardians, it was important they remained true to the narrative we had built while still being instantly recognizable as the Guardians of the Galaxy fans know and love. We combined inspiration from Marvel comic lore with our own character backstories to craft new visuals for this fun and dysfunctional family, infusing each Guardian with specific design aspects that also tie into gameplay.

I love that the costume designs will also affect gameplay. In regards to how heavily this will affect the gameplay is still unknown. Out of all of the initial character designs that have been introduced Drax is my favorite so far. He looks really tough, and I can’t wait to see how each player functions in game.
Now it’s time to hear from our community. Which character design do you like the best so far? Are you excited for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy? Feel free to let us know by leaving a comment down below.
