As most of you may be aware, The Game Awards are currently live (as of time of writing) and during the awards a rather interesting IP popped up as a ‘World Premiere’. The title in particular is Marvel’s Ultimate Alliance 3, being developed by Team Ninja and KOEI Tecmo, to release in 2019 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
It has been known for a long while now that KOEI Tecmo has been working with a very popular western license, and this looks to be it. Showing itself off as a mix of brawling and RPG, just like it’s predecessor titles. Though this time Activision is no where in sight (for the best we’re sure).
You can read the official information for the game below:
MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order brings together Super Heroes and Super Villains from across the Marvel Universe to battle for the limitless power of the Infinity Gauntlet, one Stone at a time. This unprecedented team of characters must use their unique superpowers to defeat the mad cosmic tyrant Thanos and his ruthless warmasters, The Black Order. The game will feature an original story and a playable cast of dozens of Marvel Super Heroes, including the Avengers, the X-Men, and—for the first time in series history—the Guardians of the Galaxy.
The new game features the same kind of action-RPG gameplay that made the franchise such a hit over a decade ago. In MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order, up to four players can drop in for co-op battles in a variety of ways: They can play online*, link up offline via local wireless or pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend to join the team. With another pair of Joy-Con (sold separately), four players can team up on one system. In addition to the series’ traditional perspective, the new entry will let players select a dynamic, zoomed-in heroic view, allowing for a more immersive play style for single-player or multiplayer when using multiple systems.
