Marvel has been an entertainment machine the last few years with all of their movies, and they have tried to bring that same level of attention to the video game industry too. But instead of consoles, they seem to going else where. First with ‘Avengers Alliance‘, their Facebook game, and now ‘Avengers Initiative‘, their iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) & Android mobile game.
So not a console game, but still a very large market, mobile gaming. In ‘Avengers Initiative‘ someone has let all the super-powered criminals loose and it is up to the Avengers to recapture them. The initial launch of the game will only have the Hulk as a playable character, with future updates/chapters adding more characters such as Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and possibly others, such as Black Widow and Dr. Strange.
You can check out the launch trailer for the game below along with about 15-minutes of footage from the Hulk game play. The game doesn’t seem to be in the iTunes or Google Play stores yet, but should be available soon.
