Sega has today released new screenshots from the Wii version of forthcoming blockbuster superhero game Captain America: Super Soldier. The third-person action-adventure sees the player taking on the role of Captain America in the darkest days of World War II, facing up against the might of the Red Skull and his army. Wield Captain America’s legendary shield to take out multiple enemies at once and deflect their fire back at them as well as solving puzzles and scaling walls. Your ultimate aim is to infiltrate Hydra’s Castle and annihilate the forces of evil. No pressure!

The game combines an acrobatic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks including melee combos. The completely original story comes from the pen of noted comic, film, and TV writer, Christos Gage, the primary writer for Marvel’s Avengers: The Initiative series.

Look for Captain America: Super Soldier* to be released for Wii on July 19, 2011.
