Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was announced at the game awards this week exclusively for Nintendo Switch, and the official page on Nintendo’s site reveals more details on what’s new, as well as new screenshots.
Here’s an introduction to the game, according to 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. Get closer to the action by shifting the view to an over-the-shoulder “Heroic Camera” perspective—a series first that offers a more immersive way to play single-player or multiplayer on up to four systems. Play online, offline via local wireless, or simply pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend, so they can join your team. With another pair of Joy-Con™ controllers (sold separately), four players can team up on one system! The drop-in/drop-out co-op possibilities let players create their own “Ultimate Alliance” at will.
The game adds new characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, and more, and there is a new ‘Heroic Camera’ mode that shifts the action to an over-the-shoulder view that can be used in single player or multiplayer across multiple systems. You can also play co-op both online or offline, with couch co-op and local wireless on multiple Switches supported.
