Ubisoft Entertainment has announced that Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth will be coming to Wii U. Ubisoft registered the domain a few weeks ago leading to speculation that the game was inevitably coming. Avengers: Battle for Earth will be released for both Wii U and Microsoft’s Kinect for Xbox 360. Ubisoft wouldn’t be drawn on announcing a date, but they did state that the game is expected to launch after Nintendo debuts the Wii U later this year.
“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. “This is the perfect type of game for that because these characters are very action oriented. They’re always fighting and throwing things.”
“Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth” will focus on such characters as Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk and Thor battling an invasion of the genetically altered Skrull alien race. The motion-control action game will feature more than 20 characters from the Marvel universe and would be based on the “Secret Invasion” comic series, not the recent film.
