In short, DC Super Hero Girls is a relatively new show on Cartoon Network. The series focuses on the coming-of-age stories of DC’s leading ladies. The animation style is great and the show features wonderful tie-ins with the comics. Originally debuted at 2018 SDCC, the first DC Super Hero Girls short debuted before Teen Titans Go! To the Movies. Recently, the first season wrapped up in December 2020 after an impressive 52 episodes. Now, fans of the series can play a game based on the world and characters.
DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power lets fans join the fight as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, and other show favorites. The trailer in the February 17 Nintendo Direct looked like a lot of fun. On top of battles with villains from the DC world, fans can explore the town. As teen heroes, there’s plenty of life sim stuff akin to Animal Crossing or The Sims to explore. Overall, the game balances the more playful tone of the show with heroic action from the looks of the trailer.
Overall, the show and game might appeal to a younger audience, but still looks great. As a game, I could see this being one of the most successful titles for teens this year. Unlike Gotham Knights, the tone of this title is akin to some of the great AAA hero games of years passed. If you’re excited for this one, then let us know in the comments!
