For many footballers are superheroes in their own way, because we feel involved in their exploits when we see them wearing the jersey of a team or national team that is close to our hearts. It is not surprising, then, that Electronic Arts for its FIFA 23 has decided to propose a very special collaboration with none other than Marvel Entertainment .
The house of ideas, godmother of some of the most famous superheroes from around the world, joins forces with EA to create a series of FUT Heroes that celebrate the great football champions with Tributes from Marvel Artists . Thus some legendary footballers, such as the Italian Claudio Marchisio – the flag of Juventus, recently returned under the aegis of FIFA – become real heroes of the comics, with special cards that you can find within FUT .
«This collaboration between two of the biggest entertainment brands in the world will bring some of the fan-favorite characters to the game and celebrate their status as cult heroes alongside the extraordinary artists of Marvel. To celebrate their memorable careers for club and national team, each FUT FIFA World Cup ™ Hero will receive a special illustrated FUT card at the launch of the World Cup ™ game mode , while the basic versions of the Heroes FUT will be available at the launch of FIFA 23 » the publisher anticipates us, in the note accompanying the announcement of the initiative.
This celebration that unites EA and Marvel will also feature other content, such as cheering items, kits, balls and more items for your team in FUT. But that’s not all: «Fans will also be able to get their hands on an upcoming online comic of Marvel Heroes along with the biographies written by Marvel, in limited physical quantities that will be made available at a later time em> ».
As you can see from the images, the Heroes revealed so far include former Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio, but also Ricardo Carvalho, MLS legend Landon Donovan, Park Ji-Sung and Yaya Touré.
You can see below all the artworks made for them by Marvel artists.
FIFA 23 will arrive on September 30 on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X and Stadia, and you can pre-order it on Amazon for early access and pre-order bonuses. The game is also expected on old-gen PS4 and Xbox One, although there it will not count on HyperMotion 2. In addition, it will also arrive on Nintendo Switch with another Legacy Edition.
