The game will serve as the "bridge between seasons" as its story will account for many of the changes in personality and abilities that several members underwent between the first and second seasons of the show.
The plot of Young Justice: Legacy takes place approximately a year before the beginning of Young Justice: Invasion. During this period, Batman continues serving as the Team's mission provider and Nightwing has yet to be promoted to Team leader. Aqualad, Artemis, Kid Flash, Zatanna, and Rocket all have yet to leave the Team for their respective reasons, and Batgirl, Robin, Beast Boy and Tempest have joined. Bumblebee and Lagoon Boy are also part of the Team, but do not appear as they're on another mission. Red Arrow is a major, non-playable character; the Team discovers parts of his diary, depicting his adventures during the five-year time skip. Black Canary and Red Tornado also appear, providing training and equipment, respectively.
In the game's first mission, the Team is tasked with finding an archaeologist who has gone missing. During their investigation, the conflict escalates greatly and they discover a greater plot involving The Light and its many operatives. Throughout this time period, the Team confronts twelve supervillains including an "unknown" villain who has not appeared on the animated series and is unique to the game.
In early demonstration gameplay, the Team sends a squad to a complex temple-like area in Santa Prisca where they face Spider Robots created by Lex Luthor and League of Shadows assassins. They also battle Bane who appears to be guarding an ancient door. Several members of the Justice League, namely Superman, Batman, Aquaman, and Green Lantern, also fight alongside the Team during certain missions.
Young Justice: Legacy is an action role-playing game with puzzle elements. There are fifteen different levels and each level has various stages within it. Players select three characters from a larger roster consisting of members of the Team. With these three characters, the players traverse various field areas, defeating enemies as they attempt to complete their mission. Each player has the option to switch their control between the three active characters while on the field. Only a limited roster of characters is available at the beginning of the game, but more characters can be unlocked as the game progresses. Four additional characters can also be unlocked through a DLC pack that will be released near the game's launch.
Each character has a unique set of special abilities to use on the battlefield as well as certain strengths and weaknesses that define each character's role during battle. Characters and their abilities level up as they progress through missions. Every character also has at least three costumes, some from beyond the context of Earth-16, that changes both the character's appearance as well as how they play. For example, Nightwing will have a costume based on his classic comic appearance and Artemis will have a costume based on the Huntress.
The game will feature several unlockable modes of gameplay including a challenge mode where players will be presented with certain tasks to accomplish, such as defeating a certain amount of enemies without taking damage.
Cast and characters
|Actor||Artemis||Artemis, born and raised in Gotham City, is a young hero with a checkered past. A master archer, she claimed to be the niece and protégé of Green Arrow when she was first introduced to the Team. Her father, Sportsmaster, raised her to become a supervillain, but after her mother was crippled and imprisoned after one of Sportsmaster's crime jobs, Artemis decided to use her abilities for good instead of evil. Artemis is passionate and opinionated, but has a quick temper. She is currently in a relationship with Wally West.|
|Actor||Aqualad||Kaldur'ahm is the protégé of Aquaman, and the leader of the Team. Born in Atlantis, he tries to see the good in all people, and often acts as the voice of reason. Like any young person, he has an impulsive side as well, and will stretch the rules if it means saving a friend. His back and arms are covered in eel-like tattoos, which glow when he uses his powers.|
|Actor||Kid Flash||Wally is the nephew of Barry Allen (Flash), and like his uncle, is a speedster. He gained his super-human speed when he attempted to replicate the experiment that gave his uncle his powers. He is the Team's resident science whiz and can always be counted on for a laugh. He is currently going to college in California and is dating Artemis Crock.|
|Actor||Miss Martian||M'gann, also known as Megan Morse, is a White Martian and the niece of Martian Manhunter. As a girl, she stowed away on Martian Manhunter's ship from Mars to Earth, and later became his protege. A "senior" on the Team, she has become adept at most of her Martian powers, and as a shape-shfiter[sic], chooses to remain in humanoid form as a young adult with red hair and green skin.|
|Actor||Nightwing||Dick was raised in a family of acrobats called the Flying Graysons. When his parents were killed in an "accident" by mobster Boss Zucco, Dick became Batman's protege and sidekick. He is pragmatic, responsible, and driven, and is a founding member of the Team. A natural tactical thinker, Dick is reliable in unpredictable situations and is often thought of as the "detective" of the Team. He is also the resident technical guru.|
|Actor||Superboy||Conner Kent is a genomorph, a hybrid clone of Superman and Lex Luthor, and a founding member of the Team. Though he has amazing abilities, he will never gain all the powers of Superman. Conner is often defiant, rash, and overconfident, but is a loyal friend. Because of a combination of his mixed genetic heritage and the way he was force-grown, he does not visibly age.|
|Actor||Beast Boy||Logan spent most of his childhood in Qurac, where he lived with his mother at an animal sanctuary. When he was gravely injured in a drone attack, he was given a blood transfusion by Miss Martian, gaining her ability to shapeshift. Logan loves animals, but worships heroes, and considers Miss Martian his "blood sister". Following in the footsteps of Kid Flash, he has taken up the hobby of collecting souvenirs from each mission.|
|Actor||Zatanna||Zatanna once lived in New York City with her father, Giovanni Zatara, a magician in the Justice League. She is compassionate and trusting, but has a mischievous streak. During a crisis years earlier, Zatanna donned the Helmet of Fate, which holds the spirit of Nabu, a Lord of Order, and allows the wearer to become Doctor Fate. When Nabu refused to free her from his possession, Zatara convinced Nabu to take him instead, becoming Nabu's prisoner. Zatanna has never lived down feeling responsible for her father’s entrapment.|
|Actor||Tempest||As a child, Garth was a student at the Conservatory of Sorcery alongside Kaldur'ahm. When Ocean-Master attacked Poseidonis and bested Aquaman, it was Garth and Kaldur who came to the King's rescue, distracting Ocean-Master long enough for Aquaman to recover and defeat him. Impressed with their bravery, Aquaman offered both boys the chance to be his protege. Kaldur accepted and became Aqualad, but Garth opted to continue his studies at the Conservatory, and later started a relationship with Aqualad's crush, Tula (Aquagirl).|
|Actor||Robin||Though he lacks confidence, Tim is a natural leader. Given his "freshman" position in the Team, he is determined to prove himself. He filled the role as Batman's protege after Dick Grayson became Nightwing and after the death of the second Robin, Jason Todd. His favorite weapon is a collapsible bo staff with a taser function.|
|Actor||Rocket||Before joining the Team, Raquel convinced Icon to become a super-hero and became his protege Rocket. She always looked up to the young sidekicks, which kept her inspired as she protected her hometown of Dakota City.|
|Actor||Batgirl||Barbara is the daughter of Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon. She has been friends with Dick Grayson since their early teens and loves to push his buttons. As another protege of Batman's, she is not afraid to take on a leadership role, but also has a playful side.|
|Actor||Black Manta||Black Manta is a sworn enemy of Aquaman. He is ruthless and will stop at nothing to bring down Aquaman and destroy Atlantis. He is also Kaldur'ahm's father.|
|Actor||Cheshire||Jade Nguyen is Artemis's older sister and daughter of Sportmaster. She works as an assassin for the League of Shadows. Her trademark is a grinning red and white cat mask, like that of the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland.|
|Actor||Icicle Jr.||Cameron Mahkent is the son of Icicle Sr., a long-time enemy of the Justice League. Unlike Killer Frost, Cameron was born with his cryokinetic powers. Although he claims to not care about his father's approval, he seems to seek out ways to earn his respect.|
|Actor||Killer Frost||Crystal Frost is an ice-powered supervillain who was originally part of an ice experiment gone wrong. Her specialty is cryokinesis, which allows her to create and project freezing blasts from her hands, and encasing whatever she hits in ice.|
|Actor||Lex Luthor||Lex is a powerful and influential businessman, and a member of the Light. He owns the LexCorp conglomerate, which contracts many legitimate businesses, but is also a front for covert arms trading and other illegal activities. He is a longtime rival of Superman and provided half of the DNA that created Superboy.|
|Actor||Sportsmaster||Lawrence "Crusher" Crock, formerly a member of the League of Shadows, is the Light’s personal enforcer and father to Artemis and Cheshire. Determined to bring up his daughters as assassins, he raised them in a violent and verbally abusive environment. Although Cheshire continues her roguish exploits, Artemis is a trusted and highly valued member of the Team.|
|Actor||Psimon||Psimon is an agent of Queen Bee and a telepath who uses his abilities to brainwash and control people. He has been in several psychic battles against Miss Martian and upon their last battle, was thought to be left in a coma.|
|Actor||Riddler||Though he is not taken very seriously by other criminals, Edward Nigma is an agent and strategist for the Light. During the massive prison break at Belle Reve Penitentiary, Edward was the only prisoner to successfully escape. He taunts his victims by tellings riddles or subjecting them to frivolous and torturous games.|
|Actor||Blockbuster||Dr. Mark Desmond is the former head of Cadmus Labs and an agent of the Light. At Cadmus, he conducted illegal genetic experiments, which included the development of the Blockbuster serum, which was designed to increase the power of ordinary people. When the Team attacked Cadmus Labs and freed Superboy (another experiment Desmond headed called Project Kr), Mark ingested the serum in an effort to stop the Team. Unfortunately, the effects were permanent.|
|Actor||Bane||Bane is a supervillain who uses a potent drug called Venom to enhance his strength. He is the ruling power on the island nation of Santa Prisca in the Caribbean Sea and wears a mask. He is an ally of the Light.|
|Actor||Klarion||Klarion the Witch Boy is a Lord of Chaos and a member of the Light. He is a cruel and spiteful sociopath with little loyalty, except to himself and his feline familiar, Teekl. Though the Light tries to keep control over him, he is always an unpredictable wild card.|
