Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order came as a total surprise to the fans who have been waiting for a new game in the series from a very long time. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order announcement received a mixed response because it’s coming to Nintendo Switch only this time.
This change of platform is a huge change for the fans so everyone wondered how the deal between Nintendo and Marvel actually came together. We finally have an answer to that question by Reggie Fils-Aime himself.
After the announcement, Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime revealed how the deal came together between Nintendo and Koei Tecmo who’s the developer of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 on Switch.
Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that this is a great opportunity for them and how having positive experiences in working together results in projects like these. Reggie also mentioned how Nintendo is always looking for opportunities and praised the developers at Koei Tecmo.
It did. What happens in the world of development is you have companies who have positive experiences in working together, coupled with franchises being available, and the franchise owner wanting to do something with a particular franchise,” Fils-Aime told IGN. “And in this case, those three elements came together in order to create the opportunity for that game.
And we love that,” he added. “And we’re constantly looking for those types of opportunities. It’s the Team Ninja portion of Koei Tecmo that’s working on this. They’ve got a lot of skills, and it really helped paint a picture of what that game is going to be. We’re tremendously excited about it.
All of the previous games in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series were made by Activision unlike Koei Tecmo this time. So IGN took the opportunity to ask Fils-Aime if those older games in the series will eventually come to Switch in the future or not. He replied by saying that he can’t comment on that.
I really can’t comment on that. That’s not been an area of focus for us,” Fils-Aime said. What we want to do is we want to make this game a great experience, and certainly with all of the excitement around the overall Marvel universe, we think it’s going to be a great opportunity.
The game looks great and the fans of the series will have to get Nintendo Switch if they want to play Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Currently, there’s no information about the release date of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 on Switch. Though the expected release date for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 on Switch is sometime in 2019.
