Marvel shared some news about upcoming characters for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 at San Diego Comic-Con. Before Marvel Knights arrives this September, Colossus and Cyclops will join the alliance on Friday, August 30 as a free update. The X-Men and the Fantastic Four are also planned to be added to the game, launching sometime in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
The NPD Group reported that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 was one of July’s best-selling games in the US. The game came out in the number four spot, losing out to Super Mario Maker 2 at three, Fire Emblem: Three Houses at two, and Madden NFL 20 at one.
In our Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order review, we said, “[The game] falters in places, but there’s still nothing quite like the Ultimate Alliance series, and this long-awaited third entry makes it a triumphant return for a superhero brawler that feels more relevant than ever.”
