Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 revealed, and it's only on Switch


The Black Order

We're only 15 minutes in, and The Game Awards 2018 is already bringing the heat.

Marvel has resurrected a long-gone comic book action-RPG series: Marvel Ultimate Alliance. The third of these games is coming next year, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. The kicker? It's only on Nintendo Switch. Team Ninja is the developer and Nintendo is publishing it.

Here's the description, straight from Marvel: "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."

The recent glut of Marvel content across all mediums means that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 has more familiar faces than ever before. The Guardians of the Galaxy folks are all there. Same with all The Avengers. Of course, the X-Men are back too. It wouldn't be a Marvel Ultimate Alliance game without the X-Men. Personally, I could not be more excited about this announcement.
