“Young Justice” will return with new episodes to Cartoon Network on March 3. The show will be part of DC Nation, the network’s brand-new one-hour block of exclusive kids’ television programming and shorts based on DC Comics characters.
“Young Justice” features the teenage heroes Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis working as secret operatives for the well-known heroes of the Justice League.
The “Young Justice: Legacy” game will feature an original storyline set in between Seasons 1 and 2 of the television series, according to the release. The game was written in collaboration with show writers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti.
“The TV series is a fantastic combination of compelling writing, witty humor, iconic art, and exciting action sequences. The creators have done an amazing job blending over 180 DC Comics characters into their show filtered through a new, youthful perspective,” said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit, in a news release. “The new video game contains a slew of cool features and a large playable cast of familiar heroes, but our core mission is to create a unique experience that fits seamlessly into the world of the show and offers a new way to interact with these popular DC Comics characters.”
