Ready for another Marvel online title? Or at least a title with Marvel characters? If so, we have good news and bad news. The good is that Disney Interactive just inked a deal with Korean firm Smilegate to develop a MOBA that will include Marvel's iconic heroes among other "mythical and historical heroes." The bad news is that the game is currently slated for Asia and nowhere else.

Disney and Smilegate have codenamed the game Project PK. Smilegate is primarily known for CrossFire, a free-to-play online shooter originally released in 2007.

[Update: We've corrected this article to reflect the fact that Project PK will include not only Marvel characters but also other characters; it is not strictly a "Marvel MOBA." The press release clarifies: "Pop-culture icons such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Hulk and more will join the battle along with mythical and historical heroes as part of the game to be launched in 2014 in Asia."]
