At The Game Awards, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was announced.
Definitely a good get by Nintendo, though it'll more than likely be a timed exclusive. It's a good move by Nintendo non the less.
Maybe not a timed exclusive. According to IGN it is being published by Nintendo.
Published by Nintendo. Good luck with that.
Sure, just like Rise of the Tomb Raider was published by Microsoft. But it ended up on PS4 a year later. I'm not saying it's a guarantee. But IMO it'll find it's way onto other platforms at some point in the future.
"Published by Nintendo" does not carry the same meaning as "Published by Microsoft". In the case of Rise of The Tomb Raider, the Windows/Xbox version was published by Microsoft and the PS4 version was published by Square Enix. I think there are certain studios where, if they work with a platform-holding publisher, it tends to stay exclusive: Capcom kept Dead Rising 3 on Xbox One and Street Fighter V on PC and PS4, Platinum kept Bayonetta 2 & 3 on Wii U and Switch. A game like Tomb Raider was never going to be exclusive and it felt obvious, especially in their language at the announcement ("coming exclusively to Xbox in 2015"). I think that, when Tecmo-Koei/Team Ninja make a deal, it'll likely stay where it is, possibly allowing for PC.
Fair point, but I think a game like Marvel UA3 isnt gonna be kept exclusive. Again I could be wrong, but that is just my opinion. As far as Koei Tecmo/Team Ninja, Ninja Gaiden 2 was published by Microsoft back on the 360. But that game found it's way to PS3 as NG Sigma 2. The same thing happened with Nioh, which was a PS4 exclusive, that was released on PC nine months later.
I don't think a game that has been published by Nintendo ever made it to another console before. So time will tell I guess.
To the person who mentioned Bayonetta... that wasn't just published by Nintendo, that was fully funded by Nintendo.
I wouldn't get too excited even though it's a Team Ninja game it looks like they took their interns and had them make a mobile game.
I addressed Ni Oh's situation, just so you know ("I think that, when Tecmo-Koei/Team Ninja make a deal, it'll likely stay where it is, possibly allowing for PC"). As for Ninja Gaiden, I personally believe the ONLY reason that didn't happen before is because Tomonobu Itagaki simply isn't a fan of Playstation. Both games are his creation, after all. I certainly agree that time will tell. In no way can I speak so decisively myself. Honestly, I would not be surprised if either of us was right.
I loved the first game and this does not look appealing at all.
You loved the first game but don't like the look of this? Anything to do with it not being on Playstation by any chance? :p
I will agree that it looks like it could use more polish, perhaps a lot more. It has my interest peaked but I'll wait until I see more video and hear more details. If the visuals get the polish they need, combat is solid and game entertaining then great. If not, this will probably sell like hotcakes anyway but I'll pass. As others are suggesting. I wouldn't be surprised if this drops on XB/PS in 2020. the video just states "Exclusively on Nintendo Switch 2019." The kind of phrase and use of words we commonly see from MS w/ their timed exclusivity titles.
There are many things but it’s mainly the art style for me. I really hate the MvC style cell-shaded character models. You should also compare the woleverine in this with the one in the original game. That game put more care into the characters. I just feel this way based on the footage they’ve shown so far. I hope I am wrong.
it looks like that marvel mobile game...it looks bad
O shet that crazy.
Well well LOL Nice Grab Nintendo
I'm excited, but I'm still curious how they were able to pull it exclusively. The Avengers is a HUGE IP. Incredible!
Some AAA love for the Switch :)
Marvel probably had no intention of making UA3 until Nintendo paid for it's development.
Maybe because Switch isn't *confirmed* to be getting Avengers Project.
I am at a loss for words. Wow, this is so cool.
So many disagrees I think it looks awesome
I am used to it. A certain group who gang up and disagree just so they think they're the large majority. Meh, it's fine.
it looks like a horrible mobile crash grab
It is cool. I'm a Playstation only gamer and I was excited watching the trailer. Bummed it's only on Switch as I did enjoy the Alliance games in the past. Not sure about the whole art direction, but you guys will have a fun game, no doubt!
Jus buy a Switch bruh 😜
This shouldn't be exclusive unless without Nintendo it would be happening(like Bayonetta series) Very underrated series would love to have this on other platforms down the road
lol don't fall for the old "this wouldn't happen if it weren't for Nintendo" line, they just paid more to get it like bayonetta than another third party publisher.
It's been almost 10 years since 2, clearly no one else was going to do anything about it. Also "this wouldn't happened with Nintendo" literally is what happened with Bayonetta. It would be a dead franchise without them, no one else was going to help clearly.
Sgh I honestly thought the license had run out that's why we never got the 3rd game. I don't know or understand how ms and or Sony don't see the value into funding this game since this could be a big hit and sell systems
There is a difference between paid more and paid anything period. It's not like Sony or Microsoft stepped up to save the Bayonetta series. Nintendo did. So you should be thankful that the series is even continuing.
Ultimate Alliance 3 was pretty much not happening though. So Nintendo is very likely the reason this game even exists, just like with Bayonetta.
Than the bigger question is why Sony and ms don't jump in because this isn't a small unknown game This could be huge system seller especially with all the craze with super hero movies
^^That's actually a very good question. For Sony and MS to let MUA slip is suspect. Maybe they simply don't care because they have bigger deals with Marvel that we don't know about yet. I'm just thinking out loud here, but I think either Sony or MS secured some sort of exclusive deal with Rocksteady for whatever superhero game they're working on.
@Neutral. Sony already got Spider-man which serves the comic book fans pretty well. They also funded SFV, which didn't really do much for them, so maybe those could be two reasons. Maybe Marvel just went to Nintendo like they did Sony to make the game. Seems odd to do so, but things are happening in odd ways this gen.
Apparently Activision put Samus and Link in the first game, but when they showed it to Nintendo, they were told no. Maybe Nintendo looked back on that and was interested in a new one? IDK. With it being exclusive and games like Starlink including Nintendo characters, I can see this one having some Nintendo characters included. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@rainslacker sf5 being exclusive to ps4 help make ps4 the standard console for fighting game tournaments for all fighting games because street fighter have the biggest tournament scene out of all the other fighters and fighting games at tournaments were mostly played on xbox before sf5 released. so sony sf5 investment paid off by helping them take the tournament fighting game community from xbox just like the cod deal help get the fps tournament community from xbox to .
This sucks, I have been dying for a new one on playstation. Just recently beat 2. Hopefully its timed, I'm not buying a switch... not the type of console for me.
Nintendo is publishing it so it won't be on any other console.
I wanted a new one too, but honestly the graphics in this one look like mua2, if that, and its been so long... just gonna pass on this one.
ok Spiderman shouldn't be an exclusive on Playstation either. Would you wanna see Spiderman on Xbox and PC?
Doesn't look great, I thought it was a mobile port initially
agreed, I had no idea what this game was when I saw it. looks bad.
Na. It looks like an awesome game. How sad to act this upset over this. Grow up.
You're the one getting upset Michelle. Grow up.
Na. It looks great.
Oh. Okay then.
man the salt in these comment sections. Spiderman exclusive to Sony - "AMAZING, great get Sony!!". Nintendo gets an exclusive game "Nobody cares about Bayonetta anymore" "The game looks like garbage". Do you guys get tired of constantly moving the goal posts?
I'm not really sure why you've even replied to me with this. Genuinely thought it was a mobile port, looks dated in every aspect
Who specifically? Oh....are you generalizing? How about this? "First you people were saying Spider-man shouldn't be exclusive but now it is ok for MUA3 because its on Switch". See? I can take any two comments from two different posters on n4g and create hypocrisy out of thin air like you just did and then complain about "moving the goal posts". So yeah....who specially is moving the goal posts regarding their OWN comments?
@Razzer - are you joking me? I was super psyched that Spiderman was made. Without Sony it would have never happened. I even bought the collector's edition so I could get the spidey statue. @Blastoise - because it's cel-shaded means it's garbage? I didn't know all art styles had to be photorealistic graphics and that's it. Played many amazing games that used cartoon or cel-shaded looks before. If the game is fun, that's the key ingredient here. Do you own a Switch? If the answer is no, then how does this game affect you in any way?
You missed the point. I never said anything about your comments toward Spider-man. I am talking about you generalizing the community with "moving the goal posts". "because it's cel-shaded means it's garbage?" Did he say that? No. Why are you making up shit people say? Do you really need to invent arguments?
@Razzer - you have to admit that around these waters it's not just one or two people making those arguments against Nintendo / Microsoft. I just find it funny how regardless of how fun the game might be, the quick judgement was "doesn't look good.. looks like a mobile game". Diablo 3 didn't push the envelope visually either, but was fun as hell to play. Isn't that the most important factor in a game?
It does not look like garbage, nor does it "look" amazing, the cell shaded is not a great look, it is a debatable aesthetic choice, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, gameplay seems fine. I have no desire of ever touching a switch, as 90% of my stuff is pc. "Do you guys get tired of constantly moving the goal posts?" Do Nintendo fans ever get tired of each others haughty elitism, towards other platform owners and reliance on shaming language like grow up. Stupidly thinking that it is a well reasoned argument, be it on n4g, neogaf (before purge) and resetera the exact same smugness from nintendo fans is there which also happens with a particular group of easily offended people.. Do you Nintendo fans ever get tired of meaningless questions thrown at 100,000's of thousands of individual's that make up a collective fanbase?
@Neonridr "you have to admit that around these waters it's not just one or two people making those arguments against Nintendo / Microsoft" He doesnt have to admit to anything until you prove your point. Please show proof of multiple people contradicting themselves on this marvel topic.
" you have to admit that around these waters it's not just one or two people making those arguments " No.....sorry, but absolutely no. XabiDaChosenOne is absolutely right. It is your responsibility to expose hypocrisy among SPECIFIC individuals. You cannot generalize something like this unless you really want to be a mindless fanboy who takes WHATEVER nonsense they have EVER read on n4g and then applied it however conveniently it could be applied. I might as well attribute you to posts someone else made. Do you get it? That is the EXACT same thing.
@Razzer pffffffff who specifically???? Bro, let’s just say my comment would be paragraphs long listing all the Sony fanboys on N4G 😂😂
@Nintentional Did I ask for a list of Sony fanboys on n4g? No. I did not. You seem to lack to some basic understanding of what is being discussed.
@Razzer - Sony announces Spiderman and everyone goes nuts, says great job Sony for being involved. Nintendo funds development of Bayonetta or this game for example, and people complain because the Nintendo hardware can't do the game justice or how is it fair that others can't play the game. That is what i am talking about. You can't support and be proud when your console of choice gets an exclusive through funding but then get upset or angry that another company would ever do the same thing. Sony and MS had every opportunity to save or revive the Bayonetta franchise. They didn't want to. Guess who decided to get involved? Nintendo. Bayonetta 2 or 3 wouldn't exist without Nintendo. Like it or not, they kept the franchise alive. But yet so many people were angry in the comments section because heaven forbid they wouldn't be able to play it on their PS4. What about XB1 and Switch owners? Don't you just tell them to buy a PS4 if they want to play Spiderman? Well I do the same thing anytime someone groans that Nintendo gets an exclusive. Want to play it? Then buy the machine.
It looks ok for a Switch game. Does it visually compare to games on PS4 and Xbox? Of course not.
@Razzer even for a cel shaded game, for a 2019 game looks terrible, look at the environments and animations also. Looks like they totally took an iPhone/Android game and ported it to the switch... I really want to see games like MUA and Bayonetta taken to the next level, instead we get games that look like they could have been games from last generation when we are near the end of the current gen.
looks like a mobile phone game, honestly looks a step backwards in graphics compared to mua2.... super disappointed on all fronts.
Yeah right. Looks great, system doesn't matter.
well its subjective, don't care for the art style they chose, the graphics don't seem very detailed.
They look very detailed. It looks very good.
Damn that sux
Still in development, so give it time to clean things up. I'm amazed this is an exclusive, it's been almost 10 years since the sequel. Probably wouldn't have happened without Nintendo, given that time difference and no indication of 3 ever being announced.
