The Black Order
We’re only 15 minutes in, and The Game Awards 2018 is already bringing the heat.
Marvel has resurrected a long-gone comic book action-RPG series: Marvel Ultimate Alliance. The third of these games is coming next year, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. The kicker? It’s only on Nintendo Switch. Team Ninja is the developer and Nintendo is publishing it.
Here’s the description, straight from Marvel: “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.”
The recent glut of Marvel content across all mediums means that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3has more familiar faces than ever before. The Guardians of the Galaxyfolks are all there. Same with all The Avengers. Of course, the X-Menare back too. It wouldn’t be a Marvel Ultimate Alliance game without the X-Men. Personally, I could not be more excited about this announcement.
