Nintendo has announced Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order exclusively for the Switch. The game was announced through a trailer shown off at The Game Awards, which are currently in progress; it’ll be out in 2019. Team Ninja, the studio behind Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive, and Nioh, is on board as developer, marking its first Nintendo collaboration since Metroid: Other M.
It’s been a while since the last Ultimate Alliance game; the second came out in 2009 for various platforms. The series focuses on Diablo-style action RPG combat, and features characters from throughout the Marvel universe. Ultimate Alliance 3 will allow for up to four-player local co-op on a single Switch system. The game has an original story that sees various Marvel superheroes team up to take on Thanos and his Black Order allies.
