Nintendo might not have won best game at The Game Awards, but it certainly walked away from the show as the biggest winner. Between the talk Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is getting thanks to Persona 5 protagonist Joker and the mind-boggling announcement that Nintendo will have exclusive access to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, it’s hard to see how The Big N’s night could have gone any better?
Celeste beating God of War? Meh, who cares?
At any rate, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is our topic today, and the game’s official website has updated to include new story details and screenshots from the upcoming action game.
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.
The site also discusses several gameplay options, including a “heroic camera,” which is designed to make your characters look as cool as possible.
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 new screenshots don’t offer too much besides a nice look at Team Ninja’s Thanos. Check them out below. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 will be released on the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
