Not surprisngly following the success of The Avengers movie we are seeing a game in development featuring the hard hitting Marvel stars from the movie. 20 playable characters including Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor as well as other super heroes and super villains will be playable in the motion controlled game that is coming to the Kinect for Xbox 360 and also the Wii U.
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 Ubisofts talent matches Marvels own commitment to making the Avengers: Battle for Earth the best in the motion-controlled gaming category.
