It’s Not Marvel Vs. Capcom, But Disk Wars Avengers: Ultimate Heroes

By Spencer . August 22, 2014 . 12:14am

Capcom doesn’t have any more Marvel vs. Capcom games in the works, but Bandai Namco has something that might scratch that Captain America vs. M.O.D.O.K. itch in Disk Wars Avengers: Ultimate Heroes.

This upcoming 3DS game is based on the anime series of the same name. You can Spidey-Kick through an original story or set up fights in challenge mode. There are thirteen characters playable including Avengers like Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Wasp, and Spider-Man plus villains such as Loki, Modok, Tiger Shark, Abomination, and Baron Zemo.


Disk Wars: Avengers Ultimate Heroes comes out on November 13 for Nintendo 3DS.

    I don’t get it. When it comes to video game representation, Marvel has never gotten it better than when Capcom does it for them, and yet it’s licensing issue this, licensing issue that. I get that fighting games are super niche and all… but everything in this game just looks weird from a comic book fan’s point of view, and clunky from a gamer’s.

      I agree, marvel heroes is pretty much the only good marvel game atm that isn’t umvc3.

    • DaiRaiOh

      Did you not expect them to make a tie-in game?

    • Noelemahc

      Clearly, you’ve missed out on Neversoft’s adaptations, because they were almost as good as and, in Spider-Man’s case, better than CAPCOM’s (particularly the PS1 ones).

      • You enjoyed Spidey 1 and 2 Enter Electro for PSOne? I loved those games :3

        • Noelemahc

          Primarily in the PC port of the first of these two, but yeah, I meant them =) It’s just that Neversoft and Treyarch also handled some of the movie adaptations, but not all of THOSE were good.

      Disney Infinity 2.0 is probably the closest thing we’ill get to a good Avengers game.

      • Eder García

        yeah, Disney Infinity will be that videogame universe Marvel was teasing a while ago

      “Spider-Man 2” for PS2, Xbox and GC says hello.

  • Jadfish

    this looks so barebones it’s almost ridicolous. It looks like each character only has 1 attack. Well I hope japanese kids have some fun with it.

    I mean, they could at least have used the real japanese spiderman!

  • anime Wasp is cute, and anime Cap looks like a blue power ranger :)

    This looks boring though.

  • Namuro

    You get to beat up Kick-Asses in this game? Cool!

    Also, everyone seems to have like energy blast, beam, and whatnot; but Spider-man doesn’t care! He has a friggin’ KICK!

    By the way, what’s with all the hate? You can just tell it’s a game for the little ones, designed to get them hyped and buy other games, toys, anime and all the merchandises.

    As for the Avengers’ images; it’s not like they changed it that drastically either, not like back then when a lot of anime got butchered and stapled together into something completely different that last to this day. LOL

        Yeah, there are loads of them in there, all in their green and yellow costumes!

        • Steven Hunt

          I’m not sure if you’re making a joke

          • Namuro

            Uh… Ok…

            The generic goons in the game that are dressed in green and yellow remind me of the main character from the film Kick-Ass. That’s the joke, that’s it…

  • Byron Kerrison II

    This game looks like it belongs on the original DS.

  • Avengers Warriors?

  • Codename: D.A.V.I.D.

    I’d like to play this game! :D

  • Josh A. Stevens

    You know what I’d really want but will probably never happen? A Marvel vs DC fighting game.

    • Tenabrus

      made by Netherrelm

    • Quan Chi

      I hope that movie comes out xD That happened in the comics.

      • kylehyde

        I still remember that saga, the first time I read it I love it, but with the time my feelings became more mixed and I realized that actually was not se great, there were things that were well done, but others certainly lacked of credibility (I think the results were decided by popular voting) or how they developed. I mean, wolverine defeating Lobo or how easily Wonder Woman was defeated by Storm in the same line is Hulk, just some heat rays from superman and he was done? He has resisted much more than that or how bland was the fight of Captain America vs Batman, even that I rooted for Batman I didn’t like the way Cap was defeated.

    • Eder García

      i don’t think that will happen… unless Disney and Warner wants to do a Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny crossover

      • Josh A. Stevens

        TT Games have made Marvel and DC LEGO games, so maybe at the very least, they could try and get them in the same room to try and negotiate for a LEGO Marvel vs DC game?

  • Ziko577

    This game is gonna be very short and a waste of time and effort like the anime.

  • Jordan Ortiz

    Seems to be the same bland AIM/Hydra enemies in the same area would have been better as a pure 1v1 fighting game.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    Kamen RIders watch out

  • Kalis Konig

    Well this is certainly not getting localized lol.
