The June cover for Game Informer was announced on May 7 on Twitter, revealing an in-depth look at the upcoming Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. This will fit perfectly considering Avengers: Endgame - currently the second highest grossing film of all time - released a few weeks ago in the global box office.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will see the series return after 10 years, and will be a Switch exclusive releasing on July 19, challenging players to construct a team of heroes from the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the X-Men franchises in an effort to defeat the mad tyrant Thanos and his generals, the Black Order.
For those wondering who the Black Order are, they consist of Thanos' closest allies who support the cosmic being in gathering the Infinity Stones. In total, the comics show the Order to have six members - Thanos himself, the telekinetic Ebony Maw, the assassin Corvus Glaive and his partner in planetary annihilation Proxima Midnight, the brutal Black Dwarf (also known as Cull Obsidian), and finally, the unstable Supergiant. How many of these we will get to see within the game is yet to be determined, although it has been confirmed that we will get to see a variety of superheroes to push these villains to their limits, including Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye, pictured below:
The full cover image for June 2019 at Game Informer does give some insight into the fan favorite characters appearing in the title. We don't see Iron Man and Captain America, but we can see the signature Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen suits from 2018's Into the Spider-Verse showing up, leading us to believe the game will stem from the cinematic universes we all love.
This ResetEra post collates all the information from Game Informer, where we also find out how Team Ninja got on board and that Nintendo showed Marvel the Switch before it was even revealed. More news includes the roster of over two dozen playable characters, where the first mission is set, difficulty modes, team bonuses, and more.
