Nintendo Reveals Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

I don’t think anyone expected to see another Marvel Ultimate Alliance game. Even with the coming Avengers film, its existence seemed unlikely; there would be a Marvel game, just not this one. So it was super shocking to learn that not only is Ultimate Alliance 3 a thing, it’s also going to be a Switch exclusive!

Nintendo revealed Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order via a trailer (shown below) during the Game Awards. Being developed by KOEI Tecmo Games/Team Ninja, the trailer provides a brief look at the game’s explosive action. It shows multiple heroes and villains fighting over the Infinity Gems.

Though it features Thanos and his Black Order, the game’s story will be unique; it won’t follow the events from the previous or upcoming Avengers film. Up to four players can team up in hopes of taking these foes down using characters like Captain America, Wolverine, Spider-Man, and the various Guardians of the Galaxy.

“As longtime fans of the franchise, we could not be prouder and more excited to bring back ULTIMATE ALLIANCE with its biggest game yet,” said Mike Jones, Vice President & Executive Producer, Marvel Games. “MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE is all about teaming up with your friends and creating your own ‘dream team’ of Super Heroes to go on adventures across the Marvel Universe, and Nintendo Switch is perfect for delivering on that promise of cooperative gameplay and shared experiences.”

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will launch on the Switch sometime next year. Feel free to check back as we continue to follow this title!
