Following the success of The Avengers film, Ubisoft has announced Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth.
As reported by The Washington Press, Ubisoft is teaming up with Marvel Entertainment to produce Battle for Earth for the Kinect on Xbox 360 and Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Wii U.
“The idea that we’re making a motion-control version of ‘The Avengers’ is a unique proposition if you compare that to superhero games of the past,” said Tony Key, Ubisoft’s vice president of sales and marketing, in making the announcement to the Washington Post. “This is the perfect type of game for that because these characters are very action oriented. They’re always fighting and throwing things.”
In Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, players will be able to take control of their favorite Avenger members in a motion-controlled setting. Play as Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and others as you fend off an army of genetically altered Skrulls. We can expect to see over 20 characters from the Marvel universe with the story based on the “Secret Invasion” arc and not directly related to the recent film.
There is no release date for Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth as of yet, but it ‘s said to expect it sometime after the launch of the Wii U. Ubisoft has launched an official page featuring the logo and option to opt-in a newsletter for future information.
