Hot on the heels on the blockbuster movie The Avengers, Ubisoft presented a trailer for their upcoming video game Avengers: Battle for Earth at their 2012 E3 press conference. In the trailer, we saw footage of Wolverine vs. Venom, Spider-Man and Storm vs. Magneto and then a shot of Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Thor, and the Hulk overlooking the city while somekind of invasion force is taking the skies.. That was quickly followed by a graphic that the game would be released in Fall 2012 on the Wii U and Kinect. (Sorry PlayStation 3 fans.)
As notes for this game suggest, it seems like the game will be a motion-controlled type game as it is touted as a Kinect product. But Ubisoft is also hoping to bank in on the launch of the Wii U by making the game for this platform. With a hot franchise like The Avengers getting a game, possibly near the launch of the Wii U system, Ubisoft and Nintendo will be looking for high sales to come from this game. Only time will tell if that is the case. Unleash your inner hero later this year.
