Ubisoft Assemble to bring us Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth
By now I would have expected anyone who is a Marvel fan to of seen the new Avengers Assemble and if not, why not? Well it may strike you as rather strange that nobody has cashed in on the good old movie tie-in front that is until now.
Ubisoft are teaming up with Marvel to bring us Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth. Details are rather thin on the ground at the moment but the proposed game is being developed exclusively for Kinect and Wii U – this may make some of you nervous but I’m keeping the faith that Ubisoft can bring us a top title that doesn’t conform to the current run of gimmicky Kinect actions.
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.”
Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth features 20 different characters, including Avengers such as Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, as well as other fan-favorite Super Heroes and Super Villains from the Marvel Universe.
