Lost cameo, Meet Ultimate Alliance Link

Back when the Wii launched Link was almost thrust into a battle royale against Marvel’s best. No, Marvel characters weren’t drafted in an early version of Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Link was supposed to be a guest character in the Wii version of Marvel Ultimate Alliance! I touched on this nifty lost piece of gaming history previously when a rumor from Such Things That Never Was and right when crossover battle news is near its peak we have a closer look at Ultimate Alliance Link.

 

Jason Harlow, a senior artist from Vicarious Visions, has pictures of the omitted character model in his online gallery. Captain Britain is in his portfolio too, which I believe was also absent in Ultimate Alliance. It’s too bad Link was cut out of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, his presence would have made the Wii version more competitive against the online enabled Xbox 360 version.

    I´m glad that Link or Samus didn´t appeared on it…That design doesn´t look good at all (at least for me) and I don´t think it was a good cameo for the game. Besides that, I´ve never cared about the game anyway…

    What would have been the X360 and PS3 exclusives?

    Anyway, we can have a Action Nintendo RPG…

    The Link design looks crappy but have you seen most of the characters models on these games? they look crappy too unless its the xbox 360 or ps3

    I think Link would not fit in the marvel world. What would have made sense is if they a DC superhero like Batman or Superman. But any nintendo caracter just would not work.
