Rumours surfaced after the company registered a domain, Avengersbattleforearth.com a few weeks ago, leading to speculation that the game was on it's way. It seems pretty obvious now, with The Avengers currently dominating the box office...
Avengers: Battle for Earth will take inspiration from the artwork in the Marvel comics, and is inspired by the "Secret Invasion" storyline. It'll feature 20 different characters, including the Avengers team, and other memorable super heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe.
This is what has been published on the website, which currently only likes back to a Ubisoft page dedicated to this title:
“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 Tony Key, US senior vice president of sales and marketing 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.”
