Lady Hellbender Arrives in Latest Guardians of the Galaxy Game Trailer

Square Enix has released a new game cinematic for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, showing what happened after the E3 footage stopped.

If you need more Guardians of the Galaxy game action in your life, then Square Enix has you covered. They have a new look at one of the cinematic moments in the game, that actually picks up on the story from where we saw things at its E3 2021 reveal:

Though we don’t see any real “gameplay” in action, I’m definitely loving everything I’m seeing here. The interactions feel fun and natural, and I’m eager to see what comes next for the story overall.

With the decision left to the player on which “rare monster” to sell, AKA Groot or Rocket, this memorable moment ignites a chain of events that sees our band of misfits off on their wild ride across the cosmos, caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe.


With behind-the-scenes commentary from Darryl Purdy, Cinematics & Animation Director at Eidos-Montréal, it swiftly becomes clear that not all is what it seems, and Lady Hellbender may not be the cosmic monster trophy hunter the band of misfits have been led to believe.


Darryl Purdy says: “Lady Hellbender is a fan-favorite character from Marvel’s recent comic lore, and we were keen to ensure her place in our Guardians universe reflects the complex personality, depth, and nature fans expect to see. And with humour instilled in every aspect of our game, this gave us an opportunity to flip expectations with the story and introduce an unexpected dynamic between her and a certain Destroyer.”


Finally, Darryl also shares insight behind the game’s production, touching upon the importance the role of group performance capture played for bringing these galaxy-born characters to the screen. Close to six hours of interactive cinematics were produced for this multi-faceted, wholly original story.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will hit PlayStation 4|5, Xbox Consoles, PC, and Nintendo Switch (via cloud) on October 26, 2021.
