Ubisoft officially announced today that there will be a game about the Avengers and it’s coming on the Nintendo Wii-U and the Xbox 360 Kinect.
Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth will feature 20 different characters including Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and Thor, as well as other fan favorite Super Heroes and Villains that are from the Marvel universe. Using the features of the Kinect, fans will be able to bring the super powers of the Marvel heroes into life through its motion controlled moves and competitive gameplay (Power Up Heroes anyone?).
“We are excited to team up with Marvel Entertainment to bring some of the most iconic comic book characters from the Marvel line-up to life in motion-gaming,” said Tony Key, US senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “Fans of the Marvel universe and superhero games are going to love the extensive combinations of characters, motion-controlled moves and competitive gameplay.”
“For the last few years, Marvel has positioned itself to deliver the absolute best in entertainment, be it in film, animation, comics or games,” said Andreea Enache-Thune, senior vice president of games and digital distribution at Marvel. “Partnering with Ubisoft is a big part of that ongoing movement. We are confident that Ubisoft’s talent matches Marvel’s own commitment to making the Avengers: Battle for Earth the best in the motion-controlled gaming category.”
Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth is scheduled for release sometime this year. More information on this game will be revealed at this year’s E3. Stay tuned.
