While iconic characters like Iron Man, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hulk, and Captain America are back, newly announced heroes like Black Panther, Deadpool, Spider-Gwen, and Doctor Strange also join the action, each with individual abilities or special moves.
In this new story, Super Heroes unite in a race across iconic locations in the Marvel Universe to find the Infinity Stones before Thanos and The Black Order use them to unleash cosmic chaos. Up to four people can play together in local or online co-op, with the ability to drop in and out at any time.
“Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order brings gamers and Marvel fans together in a new action RPG exclusive to Nintendo Switch,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With a huge cast of Super Heroes to choose from, assembling your ultimate team, strategically combining skills to unleash powerful attacks and preventing galactic devastation with friends has never been more fun or immersive.”
Jay Ong, Executive Vice President at Marvel Entertainment, said: “Teaming up with Nintendo to bring Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order to the Nintendo Switch system elevates the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series to even greater heights. With the ability to play at home or on the go, solo, co-op and online with friends, Marvel fans can save the world from Thanos and high stakes threats in any way they like, anytime, anywhere.”

Range Rover Sport – Springbok Edition
Land Rover South Africa has worked with its counterparts at Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in the UK to develop a one-of-a-kind Range Rover Sport SVR as a tribute to the Springbok rugby team.

Land Rover, which is a Worldwide Partner of Rugby World Cup 2019 and South African sponsors of the Springboks, worked hand-in-hand with the SVO team, not only to express its commitment to being the number one automotive brand in rugby, but also to demonstrate the commissioning capabilities of SVO.
SVO, Land Rover South Africa and the South African Rugby Union (SARU) have partnered to create a special Range Rover Sport, which is the first vehicle to be completely finished in the Springboks’ very specific green hue. The exact Pantone colour match was applied to the Range Rover’s bare shell at the very start of its build process at SVO’s dedicated paint facility. Custom Springbok logos and yellow brake calipers finish off the exterior’s visual enhancements.
The circular plaques on the Sport’s B-pillars and front and rear treadplates, usually reserved for Land Rover’s own trademark logos, now also feature Springbok insignias and script. Custom touches inside include special yellow shift paddles, and contrast yellow stitching on the seats and door panels. The interior mood lighting has also been adapted to radiate a green glow.
Tina Pienaar-Smit, Jaguar Land Rover PR and sponsorship specialist, said: “Land Rover and rugby go hand-in-hand so it only made sense to demonstrate the allegiance in automotive form. We have a great resource in SVO, and its capabilities are ideal to make the connection between the Land Rover and Springbok brands a tangible reality. We hope each member of the Springbok team appreciates the final product as much as we do.”
Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, said: “We entered the process of designing this vehicle with Land Rover some months ago, and SARU is delighted to have played a part in the result. This project is the first of its kind for the Springboks and I’m sure there will be many exciting conversations among the players who will get the opportunity to drive it.”
Opened in the British Midlands in 2016, the SVO Technical Centre specialises in manufacturing, personalisation and commissioning programmes for Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. Interested customers are encouraged to participate in the design of their own cars with many possibilities for custom schemes.
South African customers can contact any Jaguar Land Rover dealer for potential commissions to be fulfilled by Special Vehicle Operations in the UK.
The Springbok tribute Range Rover Sport SVR will make its public debut at the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb on 4 and 5 May. Race fans can watch the 10th anniversary edition of the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb via livestream at http://www.youtube.com/user/JaguarSA1 .
