Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order Announced Exclusively for Nintendo Switch

After a decade away, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is set to arrive next year and will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch.

In the first major surprise of tonight’s The Game Awards 2018, Marvel Games came out and made a stunner of an announcement by revealing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order.

A decade after the release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, the series is planned to return next year and most surprising of all, it will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. Ultimate Alliance 3 was revealed alongside a new trailer that featured members of the Avengers, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the villainous Thanos and his lackeys known as The Black Order. Also worth noting is that the developer behind the project is that of Team Ninja.

According to the trailer’s description on YouTube, here is what you can expect from Ultimate Alliance 3:

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.
