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

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

Both Captain Marvel and the Avengers 4 films will premiere that year and this game neatly ties into those.

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. Better yet, it's being developed by Team Ninja!

The Russos only turned up to give out the award for Best Ongoing Game (won by Fortnite) and had nothing to do with the one Marvel game that was announced: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. The title will allow players to choose a dynamic, zoomed-in heroic mode for a more immersive gameplay.




Considering how beloved the originals were (plus a bit of a pop culture consciousness boost from the MCU), Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is sure to be on many a player's radar come 2019.

The Black Order trailer reveals a host of playable Marvel characters, including the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the X-Men and more. As in previous franchise entries, up to four players will be able to join on the co-op action either online, offline via wireless linkup or even by passing Joy-Cons around.

When they say Switch exclusive, there's a reason. That implies that Marvel has dropped the restrictions on film licences that have affected most Marvel games in recent years.
