New Videos And Details On The Canned "Avengers" Tie-In Video Game

We recently got a chance to see some old test footage for the Avengers video game that was ultimately shut down after the studio, THQ Brisbane,closed its doors. Now thanks to Kotaku we now have some pretty cool gameplay footage, and some cool info on the game, check it out below!

The source tells Kotaku Australia that it was the only game that THQ Studio Australia (Studio Oz) was working on at the time of the closure and they had already poured 18 months of hard work into crafting what was anticipated to be a high quality Marvel movie game instead of just another licensed title.

When the developers at the studio got wind that Studio Oz was in trouble, they made these videos for Marvel in hope that the comic book giant would come on board and prevent any closures. Despite the superhero first-person brawler impressing Marvel, the project was ultimately canned by THQ.

The game was being developed for Xbox 360 and PS3, with THQ’s Melbourne studio, Blue Tongue, said to have been working on the PC version. Our source tells us that approximately 200 people in total were working on the game, including Blue Tongue and outsourcing.

A first person brawler? That would have been interesting to see in Avengers format. And did anyone notice Vision? How about the Super Skrulls with X-Men and Fantastic Four powers, so I'm going to take that as a pretty clear indication that the Skrulls will NOT be the villains in The Avengers.
