The Kinect is getting a new fighter soon, courtesy of Ubisoft. PowerUp Heroes, described as “a full-body combat game,” is currently in development at Longtail Studios and scheduled to launch this June. Players will get to use their avatar as a custom superhero to fight the good fight against the forces of darkness, using their bodies to “launch projectiles, dodge strikes and counter deadly attacks.” Friends can also join in on the action in either a local two-player versus match or four-player tournament.
Players use their unique Xbox 360 avatars to create custom playable superheroes in the game and prepare their avatar for battle by infusing their super suit with deadly powers and special abilities. After the player’s character destroys an enemy in battle, they will strip them of the super suit and wield their power for their next battle. There are 20 super suits to collect including the mighty Necromancer suit which allows the player to control a horde of skeletons, and the Mentalist suit that gives the player the ability to break into their enemy’s mind.
