Overall, the first Disney and Marvel Games Showcase had a bit of a mixed bag. Even though there were some intriguing announcements, like Skydance's Black Panther and Captain America titles, the showcase had numerous conspicuous omissions and unimpressive announcements. \n \nIt all proceeded at such a dizzying pace that it was difficult to recall any of the games displayed in detail. Marvel's Midnight Suns and its succinct promo for several future animated shorts stood out among the rest of the lively event. \n \nIn addition to announcing a date for the next-generation editions of Marvel's Midnight Suns, developer Firaxis also unveiled a minute-and-a-half-long video that teases a run of animated shorts that will start showing at the end of October. These animated pieces, officially labeled Prequel shorts, appear to be intended to give some backstory on the characters and overall plot of Midnight Suns before the game's release in December. In addition, these animated shorts might be the ideal method to distinguish the heroes of Firaxis from those of the MCU, with their 90s-inspired aesthetic and some bright visuals. \n \nThe Marvel Cinematic Universe has developed over the past ten years to become one of the most well-known entertainment assets on the planet. It's tough to miss the MCU, with two MCU films typically released each year and several series airing on Disney+. However, many people have only ever encountered the characters played by Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Chris Evans' Captain America, and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. \n \nTo our relief, it appears that these animated shorts will achieve that goal. Firaxis will start publishing one animated short each week on October 31, right in time for Halloween. There are supposed to be five in all, with the first introducing Lilith, the game's primary foe. \n \nAccording to Firaxis' official description, the remaining material would reportedly present the Midnight Suns team as a whole, explain how it came to be, and demonstrate each character's reasons for joining.
