Japanese Avengers Game for 3DS Revealed

The Avengers are heading for the 3DS, with a nice anime touch.

Bandai Namco Games unveils the very first trailer for its upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Disk Wars: Avengers Ultimate Heroes. This action-style game features Marvel characters that we are all very familiar with, albeit sprinkled with a Japanese anime twist.

The game is based on the currently airing Japanese anime version of the Avengers, officially named Marvel Disk Wars Avengers. While the characters are closely based on the original Avengers cast, the story itself is original, with the main characters using DISKs (Digital Identity Securement Kit) to summon and call forth our heroes when needed. Think of it as the Avengers combined with VR card summoning games and Super Sentai.

The Nintendo 3DS version is based on yet another original story exclusive to the game, though it also loosely uses the same system introduced in the anime series. You get to collect DISKs, power up your heroes, prepare them for more challenges ahead, and play more game modes.

Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Wasp and Captain America are available by default, but you can also use other heroes, and there are other unlockable villains to play too as well outside of the game’s Story Mode.  Oh, and there’s also a Versus Mode option that lets players pit their heroes and villains against other players’ characters.

There’s nothing much to see in this short three-minute trailer, but we can probably hope for added features, and even some DLC in the future. The game is slated to be released in Japan on the 13th of November this year. Avengers as it maybe though, it is still a spin-off series from Japan, so it’s uncertain whether or not the game would actually be released on other regions. If not, then a few little tweaks might be necessary to let our Nintendo 3DS secure a digital copy.
