For those of you who have played the Marvel Tsum Tsum Game that is available in Japan, you may notice some elements that come from the game and along with this amazing image we get some very exciting news directly from Marvel Games:
"Watch out, Marvel Tsum Tsum fans! Not only are the Tsums leaping into their very own Marvel comic series, but their action-packed free-to-play mobile game, that has previously only been available in Japan, is going global in 2016! To share the excitement, we’ve teamed with Disney Interactive to create four connecting variant covers for issues #1 - #4 of the Marvel Tsum Tsum comic series!" said Marvel Games creative director Bill Rosemann. "From Hulk’s determined gaze to Venom’s maniacal grin, artist Fernando Olmedo – based on a concept by Marvel Games Sr. Producer Danny Koo – did an awesome job capturing the adventure, fun and frenetic action that the Tsum Tsum versions of the Avengers, Spider-Man and the Guardians unleash in the game. And how cool is it to see new stars like Spider-Gwen, Silk and A-Force in Tsum Tsum form?"
So not only do we get some awesome new Marvel Tsum Tsum covers but we now know that the Marvel Tsum Tsum game will be released world wide soon, too! Here is a link to the new official Marvel Tsum Tsum Mobile Game site that has more details about the game!

So what happens when these pint-sized piles of fur find their way into the Marvel Universe? After a crate of them falls to Earth en route to THE COLLECTOR, one small group of Brooklyn teenagers will find out! Featuring all of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains, this is sure to be TSUM-thing you won’t want to miss!"To see a much larger version of the connecting variant covers click here
