If you thought it was odd that a major superhero movie was coming out without a videogame spinoff, wonder no more. Ubisoft Quebec have teamed up with Marvel Studios to bring us Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth.
Scheduled for release this fall on the Kinect-enabled Xbox 360s and the Wii U, Battle For Earth will follow the Secret Invasion storyline in which invading Skrulls disguise themselves as superheroes. The game will feature 20 different characters including not only the main Avengers crew like Thor, Hulk, and Captain America, but several other superheroes and villains of the Marvel Universe as well.
Tony Key, US senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft stated, “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... Fans of the Marvel universe and superhero games are going to love the extensive combinations of characters, motion-controlled moves and competitive gameplay.”
