Fan favourite Marvel game Ultimate Alliance is back but surprisingly it's a Nintendo exclusive by the makers of Ninja Gaiden. The game is said to bring superheroes and supervillains from the Marvel universe together to battle it out for the Infinity Gauntlet.
As you'd expect from a Marvel property in 2018, the game includes Avengers characters like Iron Man and Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy members Star Lord and Rocket Raccoon, and Wolverine, who at this point has been on almost every superhero team. As in previous franchise entries, up to four players will be able to join on the co-op action either online, offline via wireless linkup or even by passing Joy-Cons around.
The Game Awards have given Marvel fans a pretty big surprise tonight: the announcement of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch in 2019. "Thanks to our partnership with Marvel, the fate of the Marvel Universe will literally be in the hands of Nintendo Switch players, whether they're at home or on the go".
There is no shortage of Marvel games on nearly all platforms. The game will feature an original story and a playable cast of dozens of Marvel Super Heroes, including the Avengers, the X-Men, and-for the first time in series history-the Guardians of the Galaxy. At first, it was released on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Playstation 2, Nintendo Wii, and PSP.
