It was only a matter of time before Sega revealed it was working on an Iron Man 2 video game, but it's not often a company takes time during its announcement press release to apologize for the quality (or complete lack thereof, in this case) of he previous video game. Yet, Sega bowed to gamers in their Iron Man 2 press release, pleading fans to take a look at their sequel.

Here's your apology, gamers:

"The development team at SEGA Studios San Francisco has also paid close attention to comments from fans and critics concerning the first Iron Man movie game. As a result of this feedback, Iron Man 2 will feature a greater focus on powerful hand-to hand combat, as well as a completely redesigned control scheme, making it more fun for gamers to feel the power and strength of Iron Man."

Iron Man 2 isn't a direct adaptation of the movie sequel that just finished filming. Rather, comic writer Matt Fraction has taken elements of the movie and its sequel (such as the inclusion of villain Crimson Dynamo) and created a brand-new plot specifically geared for an Iron Man video game. That's the hope, anyway, right?

Fraction's comic work includes The Invincible Iron Man, The Uncanny X-Men, The Immortal Iron Fist and many of his own original work, including Casanova, Five Fists of Science and Last of the Independents.

Iron Man 2 will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii and DS in spring 2010. Are you willing to give Sega another chance?
