Ubisoft aims to turn your avatar into a super hero (or villain)

Ubisoft has released a trailer for their upcoming Kinect title PowerUp Heroes for the Xbox 360. The title takes your Xbox Live avatar and turns them into something straight out of a comic book. Players can take their avatar through customized combat scenarios or online against the world.

As players progress through the game they will ear experience points which can be spent to power up their avatar’s moves and accessories, making them more powerful. It takes the trailer (below) a little while to get started, but near the end there is quite a bit of gameplay shown and I think that it looks a lot better than it sounds. While I don’t expect this to be a blockbuster hit, I could see this becoming pretty popular with younger gamers...
