posted on by Kyle Cardine
13 heroes and villains playable in "battle-action" game

Bandai Namco Games began streaming the first full trailer for Marvel Disk Wars: Avengers Ultimate Heroes Nintendo 3DS game on Thursday. The trailer features gameplay with the "Disk" system, which allows players to change characters at any time during combat. The "battle-action" game will ship on November 13 in Japan for 4,740 yen (US$46).

The trailer also announces that the game will have an original story. In addition to a story mode, the game will feature a gallery mode and different types of "challenge" modes, including survival, free battle, and communication battle. The challenge mode offers 13 playable characters: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Wasp, Spider-Man, Loki, M.O.D.O.K., Tiger Shark, Abomination, Graviton, Red Skull and Baron Zemo.

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.
