Oh, hell, it’s not like you don’t dance around in front of your telly pretending to be Goku, Luke Skywalker and Ryu anyway. May as well score points for it in PowerUp Heroes.

Ubisoft released a new trailer announcing the game, which turns your Xbox Avatar into a superhero.

You can then take your customised combatant into local or online multiplayer and scrap it out.

You can also play against the AI, but whoever you take on, you’ll do so by using your whole body, apparently.

Winning nets you XP and new powers in the form of “super suits”, of which there are twenty. A couple are seen in the trailer. One lets you summon a bunch of skeletons. Nice.
