PostMarvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order (Switch, 2019)
by Mafro » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:17 am



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.

Seems like it's a Switch exclusive for now.

Looks alright, get the feeling this is a Switch exclusive as it wont be getting the Avengers game Square Enix is working on though.

Oh cool. I loved these games and a new one on Switch would be awesome. I hope it has a good choice of characters.

This looks very promising. Hopefully it's got some depth to it. More Diablo 3, less LEGO Avengers.

Having never played Ultimate Alliance 1 or 2 what kind of games are these? They look like button mashing 3rd person beat em ups which I usually steer clear of, but with it being Marvel I'll probably give it a go.

They're basically Marvel Diablo. Four player co-op dungeon crawler.

3rd person action rpg/dungeon crawler.

Pick a team of 4 (you can change them mid-level etc) - actively control one at a time (you can switch between any of the 4 at a press of a button) and use attacks and 4 powers to smash through levels/enemies/bosses

Level up powers, stats and gear of your teams as you play through story to get stronger, new powers, combos etc.

Previous ones have had sweeping epic stories across the MU, and massive casts. Pure fan service with a solid (if not spectacular) gameplay loop.

I've really only one question - can I be Spider-Man and swing through the levels like in MUA1 & 2? If so then I'm in day 1.

I’d probably try and play through as much of the game as Thor, take it some levels may require certain characters though?

Not in the previous couple of games. You do get some benefits from having certain team mates together but not enough to cancel out the awesomeness of having Spidey and Deadpool on the same team.

At least that way you can focus on building up a really strong team of your fave 4 then and not have to worry about switching to other characters to progress.

Well I was hoping that it's a timed exclusive then I see that Nintendo is publishing it... *dreams shattered*

I'm definitely going to buy a digital copy of this. My kids kept losing their games, so I refused to buy any more Switch games until they find it. Wee monsters.

Not all characters were unlocked from the start (you often had to reach their point in the story)

But (I think exclusively) you can use any team combo you like at any point. Even if 1 were mandatory, the other 3 slots should be pickable.

In previous games "teams" or associated gave you bonuses. (e.g. Any 4 Avengers might give +5% damage, Any 4 X-Men +5% defense)

But not the point it was severally detrimental to play with your favorites.

All sounds pretty good really, 2019 seems to be shaping up to be a pretty good year for the Switch already.

Well this was unexpected. Looked a bit ropey but definitely interested.

I imagine the looks and performance can certainly be improved before it launches (unless its launching very early in 2019). Maybe they'll want it out towards the end of April, start of May to coincide with Avengers releasing?
