Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3:The Black Order --- 2019 only for the Nintendo Switch

Just announced at the video game awards.



It seems to be a a sequel in spirit only as Nick Fury from the Ultimate Universe is featured unless they go with the whole Marcus Johnson/Fury Jr story here after his dad/original Fury merged with the virus at the end of MUA2. What I don't get is going Switch exclusive.

A third party Nintendo exclusive not based on Cold Stone Creamery? Whoa!

Nintendo is publishing, so I’d call it first party (even if it’s not from one of their internal teams).

Some would call it second party. Looks like this is developed by Team Ninja.

Looks pretty bad like it could almost be a phone game.

It pains me to say it since I like MUA a lot but I agree. In fact, I thought it was going to be announced as a mobile game based on the graphics/gameplay. Will see how it turns out when released.

I agree it looks like a phone game...but after Nioh, I am going to give Team Ninja the benefit of the doubt here and say this will be amazing. (but still wait for reviews)

Re: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3:The Black Order --- 2019 only for the Nintendo Switch

Well, your phone hardware is probably better than the Switch at this point anyway, and personally I'd love to see a non microtransaction version of Marvel Future Fight on the Switch (the number of characters they have is mind boggling). But yeah, the graphics don't look that great, in fact I was thinking it would be another MvC Infinite situation, but Team Ninja definitely eased those concerns.

Who am I kidding, I would buy this day 1 anyway.

Yeah, the graphics are disappointing to me too. Not a fan of that cell shaded look, just feels simple and cheap.

Yup echoing everyone here. Doesnít look good graphicallyó way worse than the first two on PS4. But Iím hooked on that gameplay so I will probably get it, assuming the reviews are good.

Awesome! I loved this series going back to X-Men Legends!

I donít mind the graphics personally. From what I remember the first two didnít have amazing graphics either really. This is more cartoony with the cel shading but I donít think itís bad.

That's because MUA came out in 2006 as a PS2 / OG Xbox game. Of course it wasn't going to look great, it wasn't even HD at the time

I think the cell shaded graphics make it look dated, they really should have taken a different approach.

I had it on 360. Unless that was just a ported version. I'm not saying it looked horrible on there or anything but it wasn't anything too revolutionary. Just kind of a standard looking game. The sequel was definitely on the current gen consoles of the time (360 and PS3) and didn't look a lot better. Either way though I'm fine with how the new one looks.

Yes, it was ported to 360. And if I remember correctly the sequel wasn't widely loved due to the dates graphics and gameplay. There wasn't much innovation over the first one. Hopefully this one turns out to be much better.

I didn't like the sequel because of the way they handled the powers, IIRC MUA had a lot more powers you could choose from per character. And even that was a step back from XMen Legends 2.

The sequel was a lazy cash grab. No alternate costumes unless you completed the fusion powers with everyone in the roster or jump through hoops with other non-sensical bs and the camera angles suck for most part. I expected better graphics for MUA3 but someone dropped the ball
