Young Justice has been a hit. We all just wish it had a more consistent schedule. New episodes are on the way Saturday, March 3, as part of Cartoon Network's DC Nation programming hour (more information on that can be found here).

If that wasn't good enough news for you, it turns out there is a video game in the works as well.

No Caption Provided

Little Orbit, a worldwide game publisher, has announced that it has entered a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and will be releasing a Young Justice video game. Young Justice: Legacy is scheduled to ship in early 2013 for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Nintendo's Wii(TM) system, and the Nintendo DS(TM) hand held system.

The game will feature an original storyline set in between the first and second season (we're still on the first season) and will be written in collaboration wit show writers Greg Weisman and Brandon Viette. The game will feature fan favorite playable characters, cameo appearances by popular Justice League heroes and villains and include online multiplayer as well as local multiplayer modes.

Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit, issued the following statement:

The TV series is a fantastic combination of compelling writing, witty humor, iconic art, and exciting action sequences. The creators have done an amazing job blending over 180 DC Comics characters into their show filtered through a new, youthful perspective. The new video game contains a slew of cool features and a large playable cast of familiar heroes, but our core mission is to create a unique experience that fits seamlessly into the world of the show and offers a new way to interact with these popular DC Comics characters.

We'll be keeping our eye out for more information. For now, you can check out the official website, www.youngjusticelegacy.com.

It would be sweet to have another decent Super hero game on Wii besides Shattered Dimensions.

Cool that the show is still going. As for a game if it's at least fun that's all I'll be worried about.

Sadly, I can see this happening.

This show is like the HunterXHunter of tv shows

Yeah, and that's what could get it canceled if they didn't get there act together.

It is ridiculous how irratic the airing schedule is for this show. But a video game? They better not ruin this for me.

The dekays for this show have been really annoying given the high quality of it. Aside from the comic book fantasy action and espionage it's like a teeny soap opera that's actually done right. And this is coming from a guy who hates teen dramas! Take notes Skins and 90210!

I'm barely whelmed. The last time they put out a Justice League, it was lackluster. I don't expect this to be any good.

Hmm, well I'll withhold judgement on the game until I see some action. Otherwise, I say full steam ahead with it!

Well, at least the game'll have good writing. Guess we'll have to wait and see as far as the gameplay goes.

a game based off a tv show... i think i know exactly where this is headed.

cmon people, we all knew a young justice game would be in the works but we also know it wont be good..or i should say it wont be GREAT. itll be good for fans of the show to play as their favorite character(s) but gameplay will definitly be generic beat'em up and every character will maybe have their own stats and special move/ability. i can already see the gameplay being just like the justice league game, coopoerative action with the birds-eye comaera view, beating up pointless henchmen, collecting tokens, to unlock content, then a boss at the end that could be beaten by just normal punches. we've seen this with all comic book game based off tv shows (justice league, teen titans, marvel ultimate aliance, even some of the older batman games.)

usually on video games i state my prethoughts then play the game then write if i was wrong or right, this however is my beggining and ending statement for this game im SURE it will be in the $20 bin at walmart within 3 months, that is all

So...does this imply no mole exists? Or is the mole just so well hidden that while we will know the mole's identity but the characters will not?
