Marvel Ultimate Alliance is finally back after all these years in the form of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order and it’s exclusivity on the Nintendo Switch. Now that was unexpected. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Lowkey which I was awake for the Game Awards to witness this live.
The Marvel Ultimate Alliance series returns for the first time in 10 years—with a new action RPG—exclusively on the Nintendo Switch system! Assemble your ultimate team of Marvel Super Heroes from a huge cast including the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the X-Men, and more! Team up with friends to prevent galactic devastation at the hands of the mad cosmic tyrant Thanos and his ruthless warmasters, The Black Order.
In this new storyline, heroes and villains unite in a race across the Marvel Universe to find the Infinity Stones before Thanos and The Black Order use them to unleash cosmic chaos. From Avengers Tower to the X-Mansion and beyond, every stop on the dangerous quest to thwart Thanos results in unexpected collisions of fan-favorite characters and iconic locations.
Get closer to the action by shifting the view to an over-the-shoulder “Heroic Camera” perspective—a series first that offers a more immersive way to play single-player or multiplayer on up to four systems.
Play online, offline via local wireless, or simply pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend, so they can join your team. With another pair of Joy-Con controllers (sold separately), four players can team up on one system! The drop-in / drop-out co-op possibilities let players create their own “Ultimate Alliance” at will.
You guys have no idea how happy I am to this series come back! Growing up, I enjoyed the Ultimate series for mashing up all my favorite heroes together and telling this unique story. This is a possible day one for me once I see some solid gameplay in the future.
