The return of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance franchise is set for July. Nintendo has announced that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will launch on July 19th, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. The game will bring back all the four-player action of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series with an original story featuring a custom-made crew of superheroes that are on a quest to assemble all the Infinity Stones before Thanos and The Black Order can unleash chaos and destruction across the universe.

The game will feature returning heroes like Iron Man, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hulk and Captain America along with newly-announced characters like Black Panther, Deadpool, Spider-Gwen, Doctor Strange and Marvel’s ultimate cosmic protector, Captain Marvel.

Players can save the world together with up to four players in TV mode, with four separate systems locally or online. A dynamic zoomed-in Heroic Camera will give players the option to get closer to the action. As characters level up, they’ll learn new skills they can use on the fly, and also perform powerful Alliance Extreme attacks.

The MUA franchise is a fan-favorite, with the third entry standing as the first Marvel game published by Nintendo. The first game launched in 2006, with the second (which played on the Civil War storyline) releasing in 2009.
