Posted by at 3:25 pm on February 14, 2019

Marvel fans rejoiced at The Game Awards 2018 when Marvel Ultimate Alliance made a triumphant return, its last installment having launched all the way back in 2009. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever-expanding with film after film, it only makes sense that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 might appear to bring everyone’s favorite Marvel characters together for one big video game adventure on the Nintendo Switch.

Details are still scarce on what we can expect from this new adventure, but here’s everything we know so far about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3:

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is the third installment in its series of action role-playing games set in the Marvel Universe and including a number of the universe’s characters, though it’s the first to be published by Nintendo and exclusively on a Nintendo system. Like its predecessors, you’ll be able to assemble teams of Marvel characters to complete missions while moving through areas and using the abilities of your team to fight off enemies. Past games have featured multiple endings and optional side missions.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 takes place alongside the recent Avengers films, with characters racing to collect the Infinity Stones before Thanos and The Black Order. Marvel heroes and villains will both be playable, and you’ll visit locations such as the Avengers Tower, the X-Mansion, and elsewhere.

Though details about the game are still murky, based on the trailer from The Game Awards and past Marvel Ultimate Alliance games, the gameplay seems relatively similar to its predecessors. For a given mission, you’ll assemble a team of four characters, taking control of one of them at a time as you move through dungeon-like levels and fight off enemies. Each character has a different set of abilities that can be used against foes, and putting together a team that works well together will be key to finishing each level. This is especially true as characters will have special abilities that can be unleashed as powerful finishers, and there are massive team attacks that combine the powers of multiple members of your group.

One feature that’s been touted is the game’s “Heroic Camera,” which allows players to pick a more zoomed-in view of the action than the traditional camera. This is only usable in single-player, or in multiplayer if multiple systems are being used.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is playable with up to four players either online or via local multiplayer. Since your team is a squad of four, each player can take control of a different character and work together to fight off enemies.

A full list of playable characters isn’t yet available, but here’s everyone who appeared in the reveal trailer:

Captain America
Iron Man
Nick Fury
Black Widow
Scarlet Witch
Peter Quill
Rocket Raccoon
Black Dwarf
Proxima Midnight
Ebony Maw
Corvus Glaive
Ronan the Accuser
Green Goblin
Captain Marvel
Luke Cage
