This morning, Nintendo has announced the release date for the long-awaited Marvel: Ultimate Alliance sequel coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch!Eager fans of the Marvel based action-RPG franchise have been waiting 10 years for another sequel (Ultimate Alliance 2 arrived in 2009), and the excitement when Ultimate Alliance 3 was announced last year was palpable. Thankfully, that wait is nearly over. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will arrive on Nintendo Switch on July 19th.
In the MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order game, you’ll assemble your ultimate team of Marvel Super Heroes from a huge cast, including the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men, among many others.
While iconic characters like Iron Man, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hulk and Captain America are back, newly announced heroes like Black Panther, Deadpool, Spider-Gwen and Doctor Strange also join the action, each with individual abilities or special moves.

Up to four people can play together in local or online co-op, with the ability to drop in and out at any time.
