Ubisoft have announced that they’ve made a new deal with Marvel Entertainment to develop a game based on their Avengers characters, as well as various other heroes and villains from the Marvel universe. The game is called Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth, and will be coming to Xbox 360 and Wii U for an Australian release in Spring this year. Marvel Avengers will have a strong focus on motion-controls, with the Xbox version using the Kinect sensor. Geoffroy Sardin, Ubisoft’s EMEA Marketing and Sales Director, said:

“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.”

Marvel Avengers will feature 20 different characters, including the Avengers (Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor and Captain America), as well as many other fan-favourite heroes and villains. The game’s environments are inspired by artwork from the comics, as well as the Secret Invasion storyline.
