Square Enix

MARVELLOUS GAMING FEATURE

Square Enix has taken on one of the biggest movie franchises of all time and is adapting Marvel's Avengers into a blockbuster video game due for release in September.
 
To kick-off our features programme, we took inspiration from Marvel’s global cultural impact and focused on Kamala Khan, aka Ms Marvel. Kamala is the first Muslim comic book lead in Marvel history and an icon amongst communities all over the world.
 
We worked with BBC Asian Network to create an in-depth look at this milestone moment for Muslim representation in gaming, with quotes from gamers, game developers, and Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. The piece also ran on BBC News and trended on its technology pages.
