Now Playing: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 E3 2019 Trailer | Nintendo Direct 2019

For as much as superhero movies have taken over the box office over the past decade, it's surprising how few major video games are based on comic books these days. Switch owners have one to look forward to, because Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is launching July 19 as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, and you can pre-order it now.

Developed by Team Ninja, this follow-up to 2009's Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 will be an action-RPG starring many of the superheroes we've seen on the big screen in recent years. The game will include the Avengers, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, and an assortment of familiar villains like Thanos, the Black Order, Kingpin, Sandman, and Green Goblin. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 will also feature an original story, along with local and online multiplayer for up to four players.

During Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct, a new trailer and post-launch DLC details were revealed for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. The game will launch with an expansion pass that gives you access to characters from Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Marvel Knights.

If you're ready to secure your copy of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for yourself, read on to find out where it's currently available and how much it costs.

Switch exclusive.... are you fukin kidding me ?

@jack00: Nintendo are publishing the game because just like with Bayonetta 2 no one else wanted to, so instead of complaining about it being exclusive to Switch MAYBE you should complain to the other publishers who turned it down

How to kill a franchise.

Avatar image for horizonwriter

@gusbr: Because it's been such a thriving franchise over the years?

The last one came out 9 years ago and it was mediocre. It's been dead. This is just an attempt at a cash-grab revival due to the extreme popularity of MCU, particularly the Avengers.

I've been waiting for a Legends/Alliance follow-up for years. How did this become a Switch exclusive? Yeesh.

Because it's being published by Nintendo. The game most likely would have not existed without Nintendo's help, period, much like Bayonetta 2 and 3.

@Barighm: I agree, why isn't it going to be released on Xbox One and PS4?

@Bloodwolf_19: because like the person above said Nintendo are the publishers, the last game came out 9 years ago and no one else wanted to release another, try complaining at Activision for doing nothing with it for a decade

Does anyone else think the graphics for this game look TERRIBLE?

Avatar image for Zidaneski

@mboettcher: yeah they aren't much to look at but the major draw of these games is the gameplay and roster. I don't care much for marvel outside of the x-men but having wolverine and the sentinels is enough for me to bite.

@Zidaneski: Don't get me wrong, I beat the first UA more times than I can count using every canonical team combination I could think of. I only beat the second game twice because it wasn't as good. This game doesn't look markedly better than a game that came out more than a decade ago.

@mboettcher: Agreed, it is disappointing to see but hopefully it still will be a blast to play.

That's freaking awesome!! I hope they port the other two as well it's been years since I played them but they were pretty good mindless fun.
