Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth on Wii U won't just include motion controls

Leave the arm waving to the Kinect version

Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth is a 100% motion controlled game on Xbox 360, but the Wii U version is giving players the option to use standard controls.


If you enjoy moving your arms wildly when playing a video game, then you can do just that with the Wii Remote and Nunchuck on the Wii U version. If you are more inclined to play games sitting down, exerting as little energy as possible, then the Wii U is ready to accommodate for you as well.

Polygon reports that Ubisoft developers detailed the Wii U controls at New York's Comic-Con during a Q&A session with fans.

Those not wanting to use the Wii Remoted and Nunchuck can use the GamePad to perform moves and control the characters. As the Wii U is currently only supporting one GamePad, the second player will still have to use the motion controls to play the game.

This outlines the multiplayer, but there is still no word on whether the GamePad controls can be used for the single player mode.
