Second Dinner, a startup game studio built by ex-Hearthstone developers including game director Ben Brode, announced today that its first project is a collaboration with the home of Captain America, Spider-Man, and like 50 other Spider-Men. [Drumroll] It's a Marvel game, and it's backed by a cool $30 million investment from Chinese technology company NetEase, who just happen to also be Blizzard's main partner in that region.

"In all likelihood, this will be the best game ever made", said Second Dinner CEO and paragon of modesty Hamilton Chu. Not much is known about the game itself at this point, aside from the fact that a wide range of cast members from the Marvel Universe will appear. They also revealed that the Marvel project will be the studio's inaugural game.

It's unclear what the unannounced game could be, although judging by their pedigree on Hearthstone it could be a mobile or PC-orientated title.

Second Dinner, as the studio are named, don't say anything about what the game is but it's probably a card game, no?
