Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth Announced


Ubisoft has announced that its Quebec studio is working on Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth for the Wii and Kinect.

Quote:
London, UK — May 10, 2012 — Today, Ubisoft® announced a deal with Marvel Entertainment, LLC to develop a video game based on the popular Avengers characters and other heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe.

Developed by Ubisoft Quebec, Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth’s interactive environments are inspired by iconic Marvel comic artwork and the Secret Invasion storyline. This game will be released this Autumn for the Microsoft Kinect™ for Xbox 360®, and Nintendo’s Wii™ U™ system.

“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.

Come on, guys... against all odds you built up a movie continuity over the last four years that successfully culminated in an awesome superpowered team up that pretty much fully realized the full potential of comic book movies, and now you're going to tarnish that success with what will undoubtedly be a sub-par, rushed movie tie-in game that the world would be better without?

Marvel, I am disappoint.

No, Hellstorm's right, Emab left it out in his opening line. Read the quote - but, either way it'll be a shitty tie-in game.

I don't like the idea of the Avengers being Alien Busters. I mean, I get that the majority of their villians ARE aliens, but still. I'd much rather see them fight human or mutant threats.
