Xcite! X-Men Destiny Video Game

X-Men Destiny is the much talked-about upcoming game that's being released in September 2011 by Activision. However this time Beenox is not at all involved in the production like it was for the last few games involving the X-Men (namely X-Men Legends, X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse & Marvel: Ultimate Alliance). This time around Silicon Knights is currently developing the game. They are the same guys who brought you Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes amongst others...

Another thing that makes this game unique is that you don't play any of the popular X-Men characters, but rather you choose a character from three original mutant characters created JUST for this game! The first character is Aimi Yoshida, a 15 year old Japanese girl who was smuggled to San Francisco from Japan by her parents to avoid incarceration in a mutant camp. Check her out below...

The second character is Grant Alexander, an American student from Georgia who dreams of becoming a professional footballer. Finally we have Adrian Luca, who was a member of the Purifiers (an anti-mutant group) until his powers emerged. Both their pics are below.

However the sad news (for me at least) is that I'll not be able to play the game as it is only releasing on the PS3, Wii, Xbox 360 & Nintendo DS! *sniff, sniff* T_T Of course that doesn't stop me from sharing the news with the rest of the X-fans across the world!
You'll can watch the video below to see which characters are gonna be in the game.

So are you looking forward to this? Or are you loathing the fact that none of the famous staple X-Men characters are playable by you, except the 3 characters featured at the end...?

UPDATE: IGN has some extra news for us, with promises of more to come soon! The basic points are:
*It's gonna be an RPG.
*Northstar may also play a role in this game (but just how important he is isn't clear).
*You can customize the powers of your chosen character & can expand & develop their powers too. You can also change costumes.

UPDATE (20/7): Excited?? If you pre-order the game now for PS3/Xbox 360, you'll get an early unlock of Emma Frost Suits for your 3 main characters:
^Snazzy eh? These will grant aditional abilities to your characters! Click the suitable link below to learn more:
