Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order (Switch) review
The presence of the game Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order brings fresh air for loyal fans of Marvel superheroes. Interestingly, this game is available exclusively for Nintendo Switch portable game console users. Marvel Games this one has been planned for a long time for a Nintendo console to come. High enthusiasm for the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie seems to be even more perfect with the launch of this game.
What’s good in this Marvel game? Of course the character. There are many separate characters on the big screen can now be united in one game platform. Call it like Wolverine, Deadpool, all members of the Guardian of The Galaxy, to Spiderman and Ironman all in one place. Nintendo and Team Ninja as developers are really very kind enough to let us play our favorite characters.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Gameplay
It should be realized that the Nintendo Switch is not a game console that has high performance like the Xbox One and Playstation 4. So the graphics displayed do look cartoonish so that when compared, they will look more like the characters in the comics, than in the movies. This game does not sell in terms of graphics, even so the visuals presented are still quite interesting to play, especially for the size of a portable console.
In terms of gameplay, this Action RPG game does look similar to the Marvel Future Fight game for Android and iOS platforms. Only for the affairs of the story is certainly more complex. Various cut-scenes that are presented serve to explain the plot of the story that is happening. To make this game more realistic like the one in the comics, the moves or skills of each character are made as attractive as possible with effects that feel just right.
To make the characters look different, Nintendo and Team Ninja bring the Infinity option so you can get alternative costumes for some characters. Unfortunately, the costumes provided are just decorations. It doesn’t have a big impact on the character, even though it seems like it’s just a different color. This step that is not optimal may be because Team Ninja just wants to focus more on the characters, not on other items that can change the storyline and make the game easier.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order . Story Plot
The Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 game for Nintendo Switch takes a story not far from the Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

Thanos, who is assisted by his men, The Black Order, is the core of this game’s story. From the story that was built, it is clear that Nintendo and Team Ninja really want to take advantage of the Avengers movie hype as their main selling point.

In order to secure the Infinity Stones, the Guardians of the Galaxy, along with the Avengers, Inhumans, and X-Men cooperate with each other.
