The Game Awards in Los Angeles announced a lot of really cool games. There were some surprises for fans of the Switch. One of the biggest announcements of the night came as the announcement of new Switch exclusive Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order.
This new game, the first one in a decade, will launch exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. It will be published by Nintendo while being developed by KOEI TECMO GAMES/Team NINJA.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will bring together superheroes and supervillains from across the Marvel Universe. Together they will do battle for the Infinity Gauntlet and its limitless power. One stone at a time. Your team of characters will have to use their unique powers to defeat Thanos and his ruthless warmasters, “The Black Order”.
The game will feature an original storyline and dozens of playable Marvel Super Heroes, including the Avengers and the X-men. For the first time in the series, you’ll be able to play as The Guardians of the Galaxy.
Multiplayer is here!
The new entry into the series is going to feature classic action-RPG gameplay from the franchise. You’ll be able to play up to four players in co-op drop-in battles. If you have a Nintendo Switch Online account, you’ll be able to play online with up to four players. If you prefer local play, you can link up via local wireless, or up to four players on one console.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 will allow players to select a dynamic, zoomed-in heroic view in addition to the classic perspective. This will allow for a more immersive play style for single-player gamers. You will also be able to use this in all multiplayer types.
