We haven't seen the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series in a decade, but on July 19 that'll all change with the arrival of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order on Nintendo Switch, bringing a huge cast of heroes into the fight, playable either alone or with a friend locally or online.
Like the previous games in the series, characters have their own abilities and special moves that can be used, and in this game you need to find the Infinity Stones before Thanos and The Black Order use them, as you'll no doubt know if you've kept up with the films. Up to four people can play together in this story locally or online with drop-in-drop-out multiplayer.
"The Black Order brings gamers and Marvel fans together in a new action RPG exclusive to Nintendo Switch," said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "With a huge cast of Super Heroes to choose from, assembling your ultimate team, strategically combining skills to unleash powerful attacks and preventing galactic devastation with friends has never been more fun or immersive."
"Teaming up with Nintendo to bring Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order to the Nintendo Switch system elevates the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series to even greater heights," said Jay Ong, Executive Vice President at Marvel Entertainment. "With the ability to play at home or on the go, solo, co-op and online with friends, Marvel fans can save the world from Thanos and high stakes threats in any way they like, anytime, anywhere."
The game will cost £59.99 ($59.99 USD) on release, and you can find more details over on the official website. Have you missed this series?
