In what could only be seen as a mega surprise, Activision has announced the next chapter in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series of games, called Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order! And here’s the kicker: it’s exclusive to the Nintendo Switch!
In development by Team Ninja, and to be published by Activision, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 will support online and offline local multiplayer! Up to four players can team up in one system, and the game will support drop-in/drop-out co-op multiplayer.
The MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE series returns for the first time in 10 years—with a new action RPG—exclusively on the Nintendo Switch™ system! Assemble your ultimate team of Marvel Super Heroes from a huge cast including the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the X-Men, and more! Team up with friends to prevent galactic devastation at the hands of the mad cosmic tyrant Thanos and his ruthless warmasters, The Black Order.
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. Get closer to the action by shifting the view to an over-the-shoulder “Heroic Camera” perspective—a series first that offers a more immersive way to play single-player or multiplayer on up to four systems.
