San Diego Comic-Con was full of big announcements for big franchises this year, such as the Angry Birds Transformers news we posted about on Friday.

Over on the Marvel Video Games panel, the folks at Kabam (The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth, Wartune, Fast and Furious 6: The Game) announced Marvel Contest of Champions, a brand new mobile game set for release on "mobile" (read: iOS and Android) in Autumn 2014.

The above teaser makes the game look like a one-on-one fighting game, like Tekken or King of Fighters, but we're yet to confirm that with Kabam.

We do also know that it's being made by Kabam's Vancouver studio, and that players will battle heroes and villains from the Marvel universe, collecting and building their ultimate team along the way.

Confirmed characters in Marvel Contest of Champions include Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, Deadpool, Iron Man, Hulk, Daredevil, and Juggernaut. Sadly there's no word yet on whether Spider-Ham will make an appearance.

We'll bring you more on Marvel Contest of Champions in the lead up to its release.
