This new Avengers game is called ‘Avengers: Battle For Earth” and is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec.
it’s not clear what form the game will take but being for Wii U and Kinect, expect some kind of motion control shenanigans. What we do know however is that the game will feature over 20 characters from the Marvel Universe including old favourites Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor.
“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 Geoffroy Sardin, Ubisoft EMEA Marketing and Sales Director 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.”
We can only hope that it’s not a Marvel:Ultimate Alliance with added gesture controls as that would just be pants. More news soon.
