Marvel and Oculus are working on a new virtual reality game called Marvel Powers United VR, in which teams of players assume the personae of various Marvel characters and mow down bad guys together using their signature powers and weapons. Powers United VR is being made by Oculus and Sanzaru Games, and will let players step into the shoes of characters like The Hulk, Captain Marvel, or Rocket Raccoon.

As for the game's heroes, the trailer featured The Incredible Hulk, Rocket Racoon, and Captain Marvel, but it stands to reason that the final version of the game will feature a much larger roster of playable heroes.

Interestingly, it also seems like players will have access to special abilities unique to the character they are playing. The Oculus-exclusive game does not now have a release date, but we'll have hands-on impressions of the title soon! While the game's first trailer only showcased battles against thugs and bots, Disney indicated that the final game will feature famous villains from Marvel comics.

Other games talked about during the D23 presentation included the PS4 exclusive Spider-Man, confirmation on Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts III coming in 2018 along with the debut of a Toy Story world in the game, and Star Wars: Battlefront II.
