Ubisoft Entertainment has finally confirmed the use for their domain registered last week, Avengers: Battle for Earth, and our speculation was correct: A new Avengers video game. Ubisoft is planning on making the game motion controlled, and will be available for the Wii U as well as the Kinect for the XBOX 360. Ubisoft gave no specific date, however said they were planning a release after the Wii U debut.
Some quotes from the article regarding the game:
“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.”
