The Avengers just hit the big screen, and now a game is on its way.
Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, a motion-controlled action game, is coming to Wii U this year, according to The Washington Post.
Ubisoft recently filed a trademark for Avengers: Battle for Earth, but at the time no game announcement was made. A few days later, we have learned that the game is coming to Nintendo's upcoming console, the Wii U, and also Kinect.
While Battle for Earth will focus on Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and The Hulk, more than 20 characters from the Marvel universe will be present in the title, which is actually based on the Secret Invasion comic series and not the movie. In the game, The Avengers will be fighting off the genetically altered Skrull aliens.
Ubisoft’s vice president of sales Tony Key said "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. This is the perfect type of game for that because these characters are very action oriented. They’re always fighting and throwing things."
More information is set to be revealed on the game at this years E3 which is only a few weeks away. Look forward to more coverage of the game during E3 2012.
