Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Is Coming To Nintendo Switch Exclusively

Marvel Entertainment has revealed Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, the latest in the series of squad beat 'em ups that began on the PS2, PS3, Xbox, and Xbox 360. Ultimate Alliance 3 was revealed alongside a new trailer that featured members of the Avengers, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the villainous Thanos and his lackeys known as The Black Order. It won't be developed by the same team, but will instead come under the supervision of Team Ninja, developers of Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, and Nioh.

When they say Switch exclusive, there's a reason.

Play online*, offline via local wireless, or simply pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend, so they can join your team. This time, players may choose the traditional top-down perspective or a more zoomed in, "heroic" view. That implies that Marvel has dropped the restrictions on film licences that have affected most Marvel games in recent years.
