Marvel.com: The Sorcerer Supreme is coming to “Marvel Tsum Tsum!” What brings this mystical Tsum Tsum into the fight?
Danny Koo: We previously announced at New York Comic Con that we are celebrating Doctor Strange event across all Marvel games and Marvel Tsum Tsum is one of them. With the release of DOCTOR STRANGE AND THE SORCERERS SUPREME #1 this week, and Marvel’s Doctor Strange coming to theaters soon, we feel like this is the right time to introduce mystical Tsum Tsum to the whole world. Players will get to know key characters like Doctor Strange, the Ancient One and Baron Mordo in the game.
Oh, and by the way, we just launched Marvel Tsum Tsum globally, so fans around the world can enjoy the game and the Doctor Strange event!
Marvel.com: What new challenges will players face while traversing the stages in the event map?
Danny Koo: In order to showcase Doctor Strange content in a unique way to our fans, we work with our game partner NHN to think about what kind of stage we should set to tell the story we want. Drawing inspiration from the comics, we have created an event story that follows the origin of Doctor Strange on his quest to become the Sorcerer Supreme. Keeping the challenge new and fresh compare to our recent Spider-Man event, we introduce new challenges and obstacles such as magical icicles for the players to enjoy. The quest map is influenced by the design of ancient scrolls, journey to the top of the mountain to seek out the Ancient One. We think players will love this one!
Marvel.com: Should we be focused on using any particular skills to take down the new baddies or obstacles that need to be overcome?
Danny Koo: Characters from Doctor Strange’s world such as Doctor Strange himself or the Ancient One has an advantage in stats over opponents during this event. Players should obtain and level up these Tsums so you start having an advantage during this event. Each stage has unique obstacles and opponents. Bomb creating skills come in handy to destroy icicles and weapons come in handy to destroy the Mindless Ones! Beware of Baron Mordo, he is tricky, so make sure you level up your Tsums! The strength of this game is pick your favorite team. Just make sure you pay attention to the type of villain you’re battling. You will want to pick a team that has an advantage over the villain to make your battle easier!
Marvel.com: What’s the best way for players to add Doctor Strange himself to their roster?
Danny Koo: It’s a secret! Don’t tell the Ancient One. Now is the time to get Doctor Strange himself! You are most likely to draw Doctor Strange or the Ancient One because the draw rate is up until 10/29. I have tried Doctor Strange myself, he can move bombs with his levitation magic! Players will find him very useful, indeed.
Marvel.com: Can you share any other tips or tricks for players to make the most of this event?
