As its title suggests, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order revolves around the titular villain team headed by the mad Titan Thanos. 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!
The game seems to feature similar brawl-based action gameplay that the series became known for when it launched on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Play online, offline via local wireless, or simply pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend, so they can join your team. "MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE is all about teaming up with your friends and creating your own "dream team" of Super Heroes to go on adventures across the Marvel Universe, and Nintendo Switch is ideal for delivering on that promise of cooperative gameplay and shared experiences".
Although no exact date has been set yet, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order launches on what should be an auspicious year for Marvel.
The emphasis on co-op play is obviously a good fit for the Switch, but even so it's an unexpected and interesting move for Nintendo to snap it up as an exclusive. This time, players may choose the traditional top-down perspective or a more zoomed in, "heroic" view.
