Ubisoft and Marvel Entertainment have joined forces to develop a video game based on the popular Avengers characters and other heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe. This is no surprise considering the film has already made over $1 billion in just two weeks.

Marvel says the game will feature 20 different characters, including Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, as well as some super villains from the Marvel Universe. The game will be released this fall for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft with Kinect for Xbox 360 and Nintendo's Wii U system. It appears that the PS3 is being left out.

Andreea Enache-Thune, senior vice president of games and digital distribution at Marvel, says, "For the last few years, Marvel has positioned itself to deliver the absolute best in entertainment, be it in film, animation, comics or games. 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."

A website for the game has been established at avengersbattleforearth.com.
