The Wii and PSP versions of the game will feature the same story as that of the Xbox 360 and PS3, but told in a comic book style. This version also gets different cinematics, story elements, dialog, locations, and flight levels. On the Wii, the combat system will take advantage of motion control for fighting and unleashing Thor's elemental powers. The DS gets a wholly different 2D side scrolling adventure.
No word was given as to the teams at work on the various versions of the game; however, Total War developer Creative Assembly announced yesterday on its website that Sega have okayed a new console game project with them. Another potential indicator of their involvement is that the announcement was co-branded for Sega North America and Europe. Creative Assembly calls West Sussex home. A quick look at Creative Assembly's job postings shows the company is also in the market for a lead designer experienced working on "third-person action titles."
Sega notes that lead Thor comic book author Matt Fraction is serving as story consultant, but did not specify if he would oversee all versions. Described in broad terms, the story draws on Norse mythology as Thor uses his legendary hammer Mjolnir and elemental powers to defend Asgard, capital city of the Gods. We'll have more, including first screens, as soon as possible.
