“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, SVP of US 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.”
 
Motion control is being touted as a huge element of this game, which is not surprising, given it will be launching on the two dominant motion control gaming consoles. The choice to launch on the Wii U suggests we might see some additional elements that take advantage of the tablet controller.
 
Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth will launch in Autumn.
