Comic-con saw lots of cool Avengers news and gamers didn’t miss out either. Ubisoft previewed the trailer for the upcoming motion game Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth.
Featuring 20 different characters, including those currently seen in the Avengers movie – Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye – along with other fan-favourite super heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe.
Available on the Wii U and Xbox Kinect this December, you’ll get to use motion to trigger unique super attacks and use special moves while playing with friends or against the AI.
