Nintendo confirmed the release date of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 : The Black Order. The game will release on July 19 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch console.
Initially announced back in December at The Game Awards and will see the first entry in the game series for 10 years. The team up game will feature characters from The Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy and X-Men team up to stop Thanos and The Black Order from retrieving the infinity stones. The box art features new additions like Black Panther, Venom, Miles Morales, Spider Gwen and Quicksilver to the mix.
