Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is finally a reality, and it’s exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.
Coming in 2019, this third entry in the first new entry to come in ten whole years. Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is being developed by Team Ninja, the minds behind the Dead or Alive series.
The official synopsis for the game is as follows:
“Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order brings together superheroes and supervillains from across the Marvel Universe to battle for the limitless power of the Infinity Gauntlet, one Stone at a time. This unprecedented team of characters must use their unique superpowers to defeat the mad cosmic tyrant Thanos and his ruthless warmasters, The Black Order. The game will feature an original story and a playable cast of dozens of Marvel superheroes, including the Avengers, the X-Men, and – for the first time in series history – the Guardians of the Galaxy.
“The new game features the same kind of action-RPG gameplay that made the franchise such a hit over a decade ago. In Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, up to four players can drop in for co-op battles in a variety of ways: They can play online, link up offline via local wireless or pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend to join the team. With another pair of Joy-Con (sold separately), four players can team up on one system. In addition to the series’ traditional perspective, the new entry will let players select a dynamic, zoomed-in heroic view, allowing for a more immersive play style for single-player or multiplayer when using multiple systems.”
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is being published by Nintendo and will be released in 2019.
