Ubisoft Announces PowerUp Heroes

If you're still looking for the original Kinect games among the sea of exercise suites and minigame collections, look no further than Ubisoft's PowerUp Heroes, a fighting game that has you playing as a variety of superheroes, swinging your arms in to pull off numerous superpowered attacks, from normal kicks and punches to more impressive feats of supernatural strength.

Super suits can be collected as you go on, which means that even though you play as your Avatar, you can still take on the role of many different heroes, who all have their own unique features, like the skeleton-summoning Necromancer. The one-on-one fights in PowerUp Heroes are viewed behind the shoulders of your characters, and you can also duel online.

Ubisoft has PowerUp Heroes slated for a June release. Although it seems geared for kids (groan-worthy trailer nonwithstanding), the concept plays to the Kinect's strengths, letting you get active and imaginative.
