If you’re a fan of the Marvel franchise, you’ve probably played one of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games. They feature a beat’em up style of play, where you get to control a team of your favorite superheroes.

The third installment of the series, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, is set to come out for the Nintendo Switch. Published by Nintendo directly, this game will be available on July 19th. It will feature even more of your favorite heroes and villains.

These include the X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, and of course, the Avengers. Much to many fans’ delight, you’ll be pitted against the all-powerful Thanos and his evil companions, The Black Order. Thanos was finally front and center in the smash-hit Avengers: Infinity War. He was depicted perfectly as being a powerful Titan, set to rid half of the universe for the purpose of preservation. He was evil, but there was a purpose to his evil ways.

You’ll have the chance to stop him and his team before they can get their hands on the Infinity Stones. A new addition to this entry is an over-the-shoulder ‘Heroic Camera’ perspective. It gives you an amazing vantage point, letting you experience this heroic action like never before. It just further immerses you in the world of Marvel, where you’ll have the chance to see some iconic locations. These include X-Mansion and Avengers Tower.

The great thing about this Nintendo title is it will feature co-op, where four Joy-Con controllers can be used. You can thus team up with four of your friends, battling it out with some of your favorite characters from Marvel. You can also play online if you don’t have anyone to play with locally.

Like every other Marvel Ultimate Alliance game, each of the characters has unique abilities and moves. This gives you the chance to explore various characters to find out what style of combat you like most. Some fan-favorites that will be making an appearance include Thor, Wolverine, Falcon, Gwen Stacey, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Spider Man, Hulk, Groot, Nick Fury, and Star-Lord.

This is one of the more exciting games that has been announced for the Nintendo Switch. It should sell pretty well considering that Avengers: Endgame is just around the corner. Fans will get a conclusion to the Infinity War saga, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order gives them just another platform to experience this gripping story.
