With Avengers Endgame on the horizon, a lot of fans have Marvel on the brain. Luckily for those who enjoy the Nintendo Switch, the Big N has revealed some good news about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for their hybrid console. Brace yourselves, because the fight kicks off on July 19! 

In addition to the release date, we also caught our first look at the action-packed cover art for the Switch game: 

 

“The new game features the same kind of action-RPG gameplay that made the franchise such a hit over a decade ago,” a press release about the new game from Nintendo explained. “In Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, up to four players can drop in for co-op battles in a variety of ways: They can play online, link up offline via local wireless or pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend to join the team. With another pair of Joy-Con (sold separately), four players can team up on one system. In addition to the series’ traditional perspective, the new entry will let players select a dynamic, zoomed-in heroic view, allowing for a more immersive play style for single-player or multiplayer when using multiple systems.”
