Nearly a month after the games details were accidentally revealed on Ubisoft's own store website, PowerUp Heroes has been officially unveiled. The gameplay details remain largely the same; the game "transforms your Xbox 360 avatar into a superhero. Players control each move in combat using their entire body to launch projectiles, dodge strikes and counter deadly attacks". The game will also feature a two player online showdown mode, as well as local two player versus and a four player tournament mode.
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.
The game launches exclusvely for Kinect this June. Check out the launch trailer below.
