Bandai Namco Games began streaming the first TV spot for Marvel Disk Wars: Avengers Ultimate Heroes Nintendo 3DS game on Monday. The commercial features gameplay and special attacks from Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Wasp and Spider-Man. The "battle-action" game will ship on November 13 in Japan for 4,740 yen (US$46).

Toei Animation is producing Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, Marvel's first television anime series for Japanese boys, for Walt Disney Japan to air throughout Japan. Bandai is responsible for turning the characters into merchandising. The series is aimed at boys ages 6-12, and it premiered in April.

The series started an X-Men arc in July. T.M. Revolution also joined the cast in the spring as Silver Samurai, a major villain who ushers Japan into darkness.

In the anime, portable capturing devices known as "DISKs" were developed to capture evil villains. However, thanks to Loki's machinations, both villains and heroes are sealed up in these Disks and scattered around the world. Amid the chaos, five youths obtained the power to restore these DISK-sealed heroes through a program called "Biocode." These youths received five DISKs that Spider-Man, who narrowly escaped being sealed himself, retrieved. Thus, these five can restore Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Wasp — the Avengers.
