Marvel has announced that the next entry in its Marvel Ultimate Alliance series, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, will be coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
Announced at The Game Awards 2018, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order follows in the footsteps of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (2009), bringing the most-popular faces of the Marvel universe together for up to four player action.
Just like the previous entry, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 takes its inspiration from the comic books. However, instead of there being a civil war, heroes and villains alike will join forces in order to find the Infinity Stones before Thanos and his “ruthless warmasters,” The Black Order, can get their hands on them.
Here is more from Marvel:
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.
Play online, offline via local wireless, or simply pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend, so they can join your team. With another pair of Joy-Con controllers (sold separately), four players can team up on one system! The drop-in / drop-out co-op possibilities let players create their own “Ultimate Alliance” at will.
