Take the fight to Killmonger and Klaue in Black Panther’s home

Hot on the heels of the release of Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” the world of “Marvel Future Fight” get a little more Wakandan. Erik Killmonger and Klaue feature as the threats in the game’s new Legendary Battle, while Shuri comes to join the fight alongside her brother, T’Challa. Recruit Shuri, defeat and recruit Killmonger, and deck everyone out in their finest Wakandan regalia as the multi-dimensional battle rages on!

We spoke to several members of the Netmarble team to get the rundown of just how much of Wakanda we’ll see in this update.

Marvel.com: “Black Panther” hits theaters soon, but Wakanda makes a big showing in Marvel Future Fight this week. What can you tell us about this new update?

Minkyun Kim (Lead Game Designer): In this update, we have prepared various characters and content based on the regal nation of Wakanda to coincide with the release of the movie. While Wakanda was previously featured in the “Marvel Future Fight” storyline, this update provides a more detailed look at Black Panther’s home and his allies and enemies. Players will be able to experience the adventures of the sinister Erik Killmonger and Ulysses Klaue, as they plot against the throne, and the heroes that protect Wakanda, namely Black Panther and Shuri.

Marvel.com: Which characters will be sporting new threads as they take the fight to Killmonger and Klaue?

Youjung Kim (System Designer): We have prepared new uniforms for the heroes appearing in “Black Panther”; these uniforms were designed with the movie in mind. Black Panther gets a brand-new uniform, of course, his second movie-inspired costume to be included in the game. Princess Shuri has the Panther Blast Uniform, representing her unique appearance in the movie.  And finally, Erik Killmonger gets a golden Black Panther Uniform to face down his nemesis!

Marvel.com: What new heroes and villains are making their “Marvel Future Fight” premiere?

Jongho Park (Skill Designer): We have added the comic versions of Shuri and Killmonger to our game in this update. Players will see that we put great effort to keep Shuri and Killmonger closely aligned with their portrayals in the comics, including their appearances and innate skills. Players will also meet our other new character, Ulysses Klaue, in his movie form. We are excited for our players to experience how we integrated the characters from the film into the multiple layers of our game!

Marvel.com: The film and comic portrayals of Killmonger vary somewhat. Which Killmonger will we see here and how has his skillset been expressed in the game?

Jongho Park (Skill Designer): While Black Panther uses his Vibranium claws to defeat his foes, in the film, Erik Killmonger uses two swords as his weapons of choice. Players will see that this is reflected directly in the game, as his skills are based on his swordsmanship. Additionally, when Killmonger is fitted in his movie uniform, a Vibranium suit like Black Panther, he has greater defensive capability than his comic version.

Marvel.com: With this new update comes a new Legendary Battle. What will players fight their way through this time around?

Jungtae Pyo (Level Designer): This upcoming Legendary Battle is based on the conflict between Ulysses Klaue and Erik Killmonger, who vow to conquer Wakanda for their own reasons, and Shuri and Black Panther, who are sworn to protect it. The Battle is structured in 3 stages; Players will battle in Busan City, Wakanda, and the Vibranium Mine. T’Challa and Shuri must stand against this evil that threatens their home and their people, and the conflict leads them across the globe. We hope they are excited for the various bosses, stages, visuals, and other new elements that we have prepared!

Marvel.com: This update draws a lot from Black Panther and Wakanda as they are portrayed in the film. What fun new elements can you highlight for our players?

Minkyun Kim (Lead Game Designer): We have put tremendous effort in bringing the unique and compelling characters, settings, and other elements from the movie directly into the game, just as we did with the previous update inspired by Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnorak.” We hope that this gives players a chance to feel the same exhilaration playing the game as they get from watching the movie. Additionally, we made sure to focus much of our efforts on the backdrops and visual scenes for this update. Our ultimate goal is to have our players feel fun and excitement exploring the unknown lands of Wakanda and the adventures that unfold!

The ice-wielding K-pop star joins the mobile game!

Luna Snow has arrived in “Marvel Future Fight”!

Designed from the ground up by developer Netmarble in collaboration with Marvel Games, the new hero made her debut in the fight last week. Hailing from Korea, Luna Snow—A.K.A. Seol Hee—gained prominence as a K-Pop singer before taking on her powerful icy abilities and assuming her new super hero mantle.

We sat down with Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Rosemann and Senior Producer Danny Koo—as well as Netmarble Development Director Min Kyun Kim and Art Director JeeHyung Lee—to learn more about Luna’s creation and her role in the game!

Marvel.com: Luna Snow is the second original character to be created for “Marvel Future Fight.” The first—Sharon Rogers Captain America—emerged as part of an event across several Marvel mobile games, but Luna is an event unto herself. How did her creation come about?

Bill Rosemann: Luna Snow’s origins were the result of a combination of events: a request for a character with a specific power set and type of gameplay (an “ice magician” who could both heal and do damage), a desire to follow up on the success of the creation of Sharon Rogers Captain America with another popular all-new character, andperhaps most importantlya continuation of our commitment to introduce characters that are both culturally resonating and also authentically Marvel. With those goals as our north star, Danny Koo and I worked closely with Netmarble Art Director Jee-Hyung Lee to develop Luna Snow’s name, powers, personality, visuals, backstory, origin, gameplay, and every element of her big launch…including the lyrics of her first hit song!

Danny Koo: We learned a lot with the debut of Sharon Rogers and worked with the Netmarble team on how to introduce a new character in a big way. This is the result of a great collaboration with Netmarble on every single detail and aspect of Luna Snow and we are very pleased with the results, as you can see. With Luna as a pop star, we needed to invent a hit song of the same magnitude. The lyrics are carefully crafted in both Korean and English and really relate to Luna Snow.

Min Kyun Kim: Launching an original character for “Marvel Future Fight” has been an inspiring experience for us. Since Sharon Rogers debuted, we’ve been looking forward to the day we could give our loyal fans another original character dedicated to the game.

Marvel.com: Luna gets her start as a Korean pop star. Even after developing her powers and choosing to live as a super hero, she continues performing K-pop. How does she balance these two lives?

Min Kyun Kim: The life of a pop idol and the life of a super hero are very difficult ones. But the two halves have one thing in common: both require a love for people. Both lives can be lonely and difficult, but Luna accepts these difficulties and strives to find balance between the two to make the best of both her idol talents and super hero abilities.

Bill Rosemann: That’s the classic collision of “the super hero and the civilian” that all great Marvel characters must juggle, right? Like Peter Parker trying to make a living as a photographer for the Daily Bugle while also protecting New York City as Spider-Man, or Matt Murdock trying to deliver justice in the courtroom as a lawyer while also fighting evil in Hell’s Kitchen as Daredevil…it’s that push and pull between our characters’ separate lives that’s a key ingredient in all things Marvel.

Danny Koo: I think Luna Snow gets it. I imagine if there were ever evil doers that chose to invade one of her concerts, she’d choose to save the public from harm’s way ahead of continuing her performances. If there was an invasion of some sort, I think she’d cancel her shows to help others in need.

Marvel.com: Luna is one of a few heroes whose identities are known to the public from the get-go. How does this influence her?

Min Kyun Kim: Luna is a K-pop star with loyal fans; she enjoys the limelight and the attention. Luna is enjoying the attention from revealing her identity and it’s actually increased her fanbase. But now she’s fully exposed to any dangers that come her way, which is something she’ll be dealing with for a long time.

Bill Rosemann: Luna will have to learn from Marvel’s first family, the Fantastic Four, who blazed the trail as Marvel’s first super hero celebrities. How do you pursue your career dreams, take care of your family, and also battle villains? She’ll have to dig deep to face all of these unique challenges.

Danny Koo: It’s important to see how a hero can juggle her everyday life between her civilian job and her heroic duty. Seol Hee already has a kind and caring heart, illustrated by her care for her grandmother. She uses her talent to support her grandmother financially. She was already a hero before she became Luna Snowhaving her new power just means she can do more for others.

Marvel.com: Luna now joins a small, but growing, group of Asian heroes in the Marvel pantheon.

Bill Rosemann: As Marvel Games are driven to honor Marvel’s history of inclusivity, it’s important that we continue creating characters and stories that meaningfully reflect the lives of True Believers around the world!

Marvel.com: What was the design process behind her look and costume?

Danny Koo: I set out the requirements for what I wanted to see and quickly established the baseline style and colors with JeeHyung, the art director. I had this idea in my head and JeeHyung just amazed me with his ability to take that and make it a reality. He’s an amazing artist and we are grateful for his huge influence on the design, including her iconic emblem (a half-moon crest that mirrors an ice symbol on her jacket, belt buckles, and of course, her necklace). Her icicle earrings and differently colored eyes, which complete her half-dark and half-light ice look, were meticulously designed with modern K-pop culture in mind.

JeeHyung Lee: We had various ideas in mind before we landed on the idea of a K-pop star. We narrowed our ideas to what we thought was very cool and we gave her ice powers, since no other characters in “Marvel Future Fight” had ice powers. We gave her dark ice and light ice powers so that she became a hero with two different abilities who balances her powers between her two handsmuch like she balances her two different lives. We designed her hairstyle, costume, and even her mismatched eyes to tie in with the duality of her powers. Even her symbol consist of two different elementsa black moon and a white snow flake.

Marvel.com: How will her icy abilities play out in “Marvel Future Fight?”

Danny Koo: She has that combination of destructive dark ice, healing light ice, and her pop star moves, so it is very refreshing to see all these abilities come to life. For every ability, we’re careful to make sure that her icy powers shine through in the midst of a heated battle. I look forward to seeing everyone try her abilities out!

Marvel.com: Will players also see Luna apply her skills as a pop idol in battle?

Danny Koo: Her ability sets are thematically appropriate for an idol. I worked with the game design team to make sure to amplify her personality not just through her animations and visual effects, but also the overall theme music when you actually play her in a battle.

Min Kyun Kim: It will be very apparent that she is a K-pop star in the game. We added a new effect called ‘charm,’ which allows her to capture her enemy’s heart with her charisma. Those affected will be drawn to Luna and will not be able to do anything. She’ll also show off her dance moves when she uses her skills!

Marvel & Netmarble introduce Luna Snow – a Korean pop star with an icy super hero secret identity!

Last year, Marvel Games and Netmarble added the original Marvel character Sharon Rogers — an alternate reality daughter of Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter who took up the mantle of Captain America — to “Marvel Future Fight.” The “Marvel Future Fight” community swiftly embraced this new star and she quickly became the most popular female hero in the game’s entire roster. Building on that success, Netmarble is proud to announce the debut of Marvel Future Fight’s newest original character, Korean pop star turned Super Hero, Luna Snow.

Responding to local audiences’ request for culturally resonating characters that are also authentically Marvel, Korean developer Netmarble Games Corp worked closely with Marvel to develop Luna Snow’s powers, personality, visuals, origin and ongoing story.

“Since Captain America Sharon Rogers’ debut, we continued our push to introduce new and exciting original characters into ‘Marvel Future Fight.’ Our creative process began when Netmarble Monster expressed an interest in debuting an ice magician character that plays both the role of healing and dealing damage,” said Marvel Games Senior Producer Danny Koo. “We worked closely with Netmarble Monster’s art director Jee-Hyung to come up with Luna Snow’s look, which includes an iconic emblem consisting of a half-moon crest that mirrors an ice symbol on her jacket, belt buckles, and of course, her necklace. Her icicle earrings and differently colored eyes, which complete her half-dark and half-light ice look, were meticulously designed with modern K-Pop culture in mind. It was over a bowl of ramen with Bill Rosemann that her hero name popped up into my mind! Seol Hee (Luna Snow’s civilian name) roughly translates to “Snow Hope” and embodies the characteristics of a hero who will step up and help people in need.”

“Marvel has the greatest fans around the world, and they deserve heroes that they can not only cheer on as they fight evil, but also connect with on a personal level,” said Marvel Games Executive Creative Director Bill Rosemann. “From her underdog beginnings as a young woman trying to realize her dreams, to her noble sacrifice which results in her gaining phenomenal powers, Luna Snow is a strong modern warrior who represents everyone who struggles with great obstacles but still rises to face their challenges. We are honored to join our friends at Netmarble and once again add another new star to the Marvel Universe!”

“We are very proud that the second original character born of our game, ‘Marvel Future Fight,’ is of Korean nationality,” said Netmarble Monster and “Marvel Future Fight” Art Director Jee-Hyung Lee. “While Luna Snow began her career as a K-pop artist, she is expressed as a strong, charismatic, and sophisticated female warrior in our game. As a hero of dualistic nature, holding the power of both White and Dark Ice, we believe Luna Snow is sure to make the new year ‘Icy Hot’!”

The Story of Luna Snow

Seol Hee was an aspiring singer hoping to use her voice and dancing skills to earn enough money to take care of her elderly grandmother, who has raised Seol since the tragic deaths of her parents. When the science-obsessed organization known as A.I.M. ambushed a Stark Industries event where Seol was performing, Seol bravely attempted to defend the attendees, resulting in A.I.M. soldiers locking her in a hi-tech storage freezer. While trying to escape, Seol was exposed to the contents of an advanced cold-fusion energy experiment, which unexpectedly granted her control over frozen elements. Using her newfound powers to fight back, Seol surprised and defeated the A.I.M. forces’ attack. Dubbed “Luna Snow” by the press, Seol’s heroic actions made her an overnight sensation, and she now uses her talents and powers as a part-time pop star and full-time Super Hero!

To celebrate this historic event, Netmarble will open a pre-registration event from January 10 to January 23 where players can sign up to learn more about this unique new character. By pre-registering, players will unlock in-game crystals and other rewards. The rewards increase in value as the total number of pre-registered players increases–so the more people that sign up, the more everyone gets rewarded!

After the pre-registration period has ended, “Marvel Future Fight” will unveil Luna Snow’s story and video, sharing Marvel’s newest Super Hero with the rest of the world.

Marvel Future Fight is available worldwide on the App Store® and Google Play™. For all the latest on “Marvel Future Fight,” stay tuned to Marvel.com and @MarvelGames on Twitter!

Welcome Marvel Legacy to the mobile gaming adventure!

Don a suit of armor as Punisher. Soar the skies with Falcon’s new wings. Incinerate your foes in style with Satana. Witness true power with the Savior of Worlds, Adam Warlock. Marvel Legacy has arrived in “Marvel Future Fight” as of today!

To get the full rundown on all things Marvel Legacy brings to “Marvel Future Fight” this month, we grabbed a few minutes with Netmarble Monster’s lead game designer Minkyun Kim, content designer Hyunseok Kim, skill designer Jongho Park, and system designer Youjung Kim.

Marvel.com: Can you tell us about the latest Marvel Legacy update? What can fans expect?

Minkyun Kim: For the first update of 2018, we wanted to continue with what makes “Marvel Future Fight” great, while making things feel fresh. Marvel Legacy, the current event that is reenergizing Marvel’s comic book line with new costumes and stories, seemed to correspond well with the direction that we wanted to take. Existing characters return with new directions and new costumes as well. We hope that players will enjoy these new characters and the brand-new event stage we’ve cooked up for this update.

Marvel.com: Will our heroes sport new uniforms?

Hyunseok Kim: We selected heroes from the Marvel Legacy event whose looks change drastically and impactfully. Falcon is one of the key characters, because he has re-embraced his classic identity as he now fights alongside the Avengers. We decided to release his new uniform first. The same goes for the Punisher. You can find the all-new War Machine armor clad Punisher in this update! Don’t forget to thank Nick Fury while you’re at it since he helped spruce the Punisher up a bit. Lastly, you can also find a striking uniform for Satana, featuring her new look from the SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE series.

Marvel.com: X-23 and Adam Warlock finally make their debut in ‘Marvel Future Fight.’ What role will they play?

Jongho Park: X-23 and Adam Warlock are characters that the Dev team have been itching to add to the world of Future Fight. For X-23, we thought a lot about how to best portray her in a similar way to Wolverine while keeping her unique. In Adam Warlock’s case, we thought long and hard about how to express his powerful energy attacks. As these two characters are very important, we cut down the number of new characters in the update and we spent a lot of time and effort to create them. You’ll be able to meet these characters and glimpse their powerful and showy skills.

Marvel.com: Can you share any fun moments or something you were proud of while preparing for this Marvel Legacy event?

Jongho Park: What comes to mind are the things we talked about while developing the character of Adam Warlock. Inspired by his “battle mage” era from the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book series, we talked a lot of about what kind of magical energy attacks we would create for him, as well as what color his bursts should take on. In the process of discussion, we even talked about the shape of his fingers! The hand and fingers take on a variety of shapes when someone uses magic. As we talked very seriously about which stance looked stronger and better suited to a wizard, we realized that everyone was standing with their hands and fingers in different positions.

Marvel.com: What improvements have been made for the players?

Youjung Kim: We improved the elements that prevented players from playing with ease. We made sure to improve the way to check if Comic Cards are registered in a collection, and added a function where you can check the current Rank of all the characters a player possesses. We’ve also added a refresh function that makes it possible for you to check for newly-created Dimension Rifts.

Marvel.com: What can players look forward to and expect?

Minkyun Kim: We are always striving to have differently themed updates to give players a fresh experience. Since this update is themed in celebration of the newest event from Marvel’s comic books, MARVEL LEGACY, we hope that players will enjoy the refreshed characters. This year, a lot of updates will focus around not only the comics, but the new movies as well. Stay tuned!

A classic X-Men storyline makes its mark on the acclaimed mobile game!

The X-Men joined the “Marvel Future Fight” team only a few months ago, but Apocalypse has already sniffed them out. Ever ready to eliminate those mutants he sees as beneath him, the powerful villain brings a new Age of Apocalypse to the world of “Future Fight.”

You’ll need to assemble your team, suit up in some new uniforms, and take the fight to the High Lord himself. Maybe—just maybe—you can bring him to your side.

To get the full rundown of everything the Age of Apocalypse brings to “Future Fight” fans this month, we grabbed a few minutes with Minkyun Kim, Dev Director at Netmarble Monster.

Marvel.com: Age of Apocalypse comes to “Marvel Future Fight” in a big way with this update. After the addition of the X-Men back in June, fans have certainly been eager to see some content from one of the team’s biggest events. What can you tell us about the apocalyptic additions?

Minkyun Kim: In this update, we will be telling an X-Men story from an alternate dimension with our mutant heroes under Apocalypse’s control. You’ll be able to experience World Boss content along with the X-Men, traversing an apocalyptic world.

Marvel.com: To combat the villainous Apocalypse, several of the recently added X-Men suit up as their Age of Apocalypse counterparts. Who will sport these new uniforms?

Minkyun Kim: In the first Age of Apocalypse update, you’ll be able to check out the comic uniforms for Cyclops and Beast, who appear as minions of Apocalypse. In a later Age of Apocalypse update, uniforms for Rogue and Wolverine will be available.

Marvel.com: And of course, some new faces join the team, as well. What do the Maximoff twins each bring to the table?

Minkyun Kim: Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will appear as World Bosses. They also play a very important role in the story. A huge event will affect not just the Age of Apocalypse dimension, but also the world of “Marvel Future Fight.”

Marvel.com: Not one to be left out of an interdimensional battle, Cable arrives on the scene as well. How will his unusual mix of psychic abilities and massive weaponry play out?

Minkyun Kim: He’ll have his basic weapon, a futuristic laser rifle. He will also be able to throw a smoke bomb, which will cover the enemy’s vision while he teleports away. With his rifle, he can fire at the enemy furiously or [launch] rockets and leave them suspended in the air using psychokinesis before suddenly activating them on unsuspecting enemies.

He is also able restore his health by meditating. During the meditation, he can use his psychokinesis to throw military knives to keep the enemy away.

If he needs more firepower, he is able to get support fire from the floating nation, Providence. He can also pull out a large plasma bazooka and destroy whatever is in his way. You’ll soon be able to experience his very powerful weapons and his amazing strength.

Marvel.com: Alongside the Apocalypse update, World Boss mode gets an overhaul. What changes are coming to the fan-favorite game mode?

Minkyun Kim: New users had a difficult time with the original World Boss modes, and it also felt too long. To alleviate this, we created a Beginner Mode for new users. Beginner Mode will enable players with lower level characters to participate in this core game content.

Marvel.com: Players will also be able to get their hands on a new currency with this update. What are Boost Points?

Minkyun Kim: The amount of energy consumed when playing through content will decrease, or the amount of experience gained will increase, depending on the amount of Boost Points a player has. Previously, Hot Time events enabled players to log into the game at specific times during the day to gain these effects, but players who lived in other time zones were unable to utilize it. Boost Points enable all players to make full use of these bonus effects, regardless of when they log in or what character they play.

Marvel.com: Apocalypse himself will join the fight in a few weeks; how will players recruit him and what will the world’s first mutant add to their team?

Minkyun Kim: To acquire Apocalypse, players will have to complete a newly added challenge in World Boss, unlock his stage and face him like other World Bosses in order to collect Apocalypse biometrics.

Apocalypse is a very powerful character who does not use any weapons. Even his slightest movements can crush the ground or blast enemies with a dark force, keeping [his opponents] at bay. He is also able to remove enemy buffs and can enhance himself [to] keep himself at an advantage. He deals continuous damage and his ability to deploy floating stones is also advantageous. He can also enlarge himself and destroy things around him with increased strength.
