It's been ten years since Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 was unleashed on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
After a decade of silence, it was safe to assume the series had been discontinued. Yes, we got two random remasters of Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2 (both of which were horrendously overpriced and ultimately removed when Activision's license renewal expired), but going forward, no longer could you assemble a team of your favorite Marvel heroes and use their awesome powers to beat up everyone in your way.
That was up until the surprise announcement of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Born from the brain of Marvel and the technology of Nintendo, the game is set to release exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, on July 19, 2019.
Like the previous two games in the series, MUA3 will feature a diverse cast of playable heroes. This time around, they're heavily inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Fans of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse etc. are going to love the roster, and though we're yet to get an official rundown trailer, we can pin almost everybody down by scouring what's available right now.
