During The Game Awards show today, it was announced that a new entry in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance game series, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, would be coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch. The last new entry (not port) in this action RPG series, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, was released back in 2009. This time around the game will be developed by Koei Tecmo Games/Team Ninja and will be published by Nintendo, hence the exclusivity to the platform.

Here's how Marvel describes the game:

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.


To play online, you'll need a subscription to the Nintendo Switch Online service. Though no release date was announced, the game is expected to launch in 2019.

Here's a trailer for the game:


Well, we got one of the X-Men in there… maybe someday a certain quartet will arrive? DLC?
