Marvel and Ubisoft announce a deal that will see the Avengers assemble once again in Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth!
Marvel and Ubisoft dropped some great news for Avengers fans today with Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth. The game will be developed by Ubisoft Quebec, Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth’s interactive environments are inspired by the Secret Invasion storyline. The 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.
“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.”
Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth is touting 20 featured characters for the game. Quite a surprise announcement but, a great one considering the THQ developed Avengers game was scrapped before it ever saw the light of day. Here’s hoping this offers something new and innovative for Marvel fans.
