We’re not quite sure what to make of it, but Sega today announced they will bring Marvel Entertainment’s famed Super Hero franchise Captain America to video game systems in an original WWII adventure entitled Captain America: Super Soldier. As you might suspect, the title is scheduled for release in 2011 in conjunction with the Captain America film and will be available on on the 360, PS3, PSP, Wii and DS.

Here’s an official description of the game:

Players will become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his army in an epic third- person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra’s mysterious castle and battle the infamous Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull. As the First Avenger himself, players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.

Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls. Players will be able to launch shield-first into the fray with the superior force of the world’s first Super-Soldier at their fingertips—and they’ll need every bit of that strength to overcome a castle that’s both an acrobatic playground for the Captain’s physical prowess and a house of mystery with enemies and danger at every turn.

Also, it’s worth noting that the original story for the game is being penned by noted comic, film, and TV writer Christos Gage who is the primary writer for the Marvel’s Avengers: The Initiative series of comics and author of numerous books for major Marvel characters including Siege: Captain America, Iron Man, X-Men, Spider-Man, Civil War: House of M, and Union Jack.

So then, can the game premise and author inclusion keep yet another Sega movie-tie-in from sucking? Get all super and patriotic in the comments.

They just want to jump on the hype train for the movie, game's probably going to be awful
