On Thursday night at The Game Awards, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was announced to be an exclusive game for the Nintendo Switch.
A trailer has also been released for the third Marvel Ultimate Alliance game, and it features popular Marvel characters such as Wolverine, Iron Man, Thor, and 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,” Nintendo explained in a press release. “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.”
According to Geoff Keighley, the producer/creator of The Game Awards, the developer of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: Black Order would be Team Ninja. The developer is best known for series like the Dead or Alive series and Ninja Gaiden. Nintendo will serve as the publisher of the game.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is set to be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
