Ubisoft has today announced that it will be bringing Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth to all major consoles, including the Wii U. Developed by Ubisoft Quebec, the game’s interactive environments are inspired by iconic Marvel comic artwork and the Secret Invasion storyline.

“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.”
The game will feature 20 different characters, including Avengers such as Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, as well as other fan-favourite Super Heroes and Super Villains from the Marvel universe.
