A new costume for Luke Cage inspired by the TV show is now available, along with a new Jessica Jones Team-Up hero. The devs have also made an update to Cage’s default modern look and his classic costume.

Finally, a Heroes for Hire ’97 Fortune Card has been added to commemorate Luke Cage’s most famous comic book storyline. The Fortune Card unlocks unique costumes for Luke, Iron Fist and She-Hulk and two new pets.

A trailer showing off the newly-dressed Luke Cage and the Jessica Jones Team-Up can be seen below.

Our Thoughts

Taking advantage of the initial buzz around Luke Cage certainly makes sense for Marvel Heroes, especially if people were otherwise unaware of the character’s inclusion in the roster. The added bells and whistles of Jessica Jones and the nod to Heroes of Hire ’97 illustrates how much Gazillion are fans of the Marvel universe.
