Avengers game heading to Wii U, Kinect

The new Marvel film is taking the box office by storm, and Ubisoft is giving gamers the chance to wield their favourite heroes’ superpowers.

Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth is currently in development for Wii U and Kinect and is due for release this Autumn.

However, it will not be based on the smash hit blockbuster movie. Instead, it will follow the events of the Secret Invasion storyline from the comics. Fans will battle an shape-shifting alien race known as the Skrulls, who have invaded Earth and disguised themselves as Marvel’s most iconic heroes.

Ubisoft has promised more than 20 different characters will be featured, including Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor.

The game is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec, the team behind Kinect’s superpowered beat ’em up Powerup Heroes. Expect similar gameplay with more than a smattering of Hulk Smash.
