Marvel Move debuts new X-men storyline with the Hellfire Gala for Pride month
  • Celebrate Pride and get fit with the X-men in the new Marvel Move event
  • Through Hellfire, Together pits you and a team of lesser-known X-men against anti-mutant terrorists
  • The even is designed by indie writer Dr Nemo Martin and illustrated by Marvel comics artist Luciano Vecchio

Marvel Move, the spin-off game from Zombies, Run! developers Six to Start is getting a new pride-themed event featuring artwork by top Marvel comics star Luciano Vecchio and indie writer Dr Nemo Martin. The new Through Hellfire, Together event releases today!

The new Pride-themed story takes you to the Hellfire Gala, Mutantkind's premiere social event from the recently-ended Krakoan Era. Basically, think the Met Gala, just with more superpowers. Unfortunately for mutantkind, this year's gala is going to the scene of a lot more drama than just the interpersonal kind.

By completing your workouts, you'll team up with lesser-known mutants like the shapeshifting Feint, professional super-powered thief Escapade, tiger-like Cam Long and everyone's favourite chill (pun intended) X-man, Iceman. Work with them to take down the anti-mutant hate group the Friends of Humanity, and get fit in the process!

One thing that makes games like Zombies, Run! and Marvel Move stand out from your typical fitness-themed motion-tracking games is the fact that this isn't simple points-scoring or levelling up. The design decision to add an interactive storyline to give some serious oomph to your actual workouts is a pretty ingenious one. And while comics fans may be disappointed to see the X-men moving on from their island home of Krakoa, they'll at least get to visit it one last time in this Marvel Move event.

But if you're too lazy to get off the couch, that's no problem either. After all, by taking a look at our list of the best mobile games of 2024 (so far) you can find dozens of great games playable in the comfort of your own home.
