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.

Up to four people can play together in local or online co-op, with the ability to drop in and out at any time.

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.”

Need for Speed Heat races back to the market
Ghost Games has announced Need for Speed Heat, the next ‘street racer versus cop’ game. It features expressive customisation, authentic urban car culture, and an immersive narrative that pulls players into the game.
Click below to watch the trailer and to read about the game.
Need for Speed Heat sends players to Palm City, a new open-world where street racers have gathered to make their names known. By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customise and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars.
At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings. The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.
“We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known,” said Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games. “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customisation, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
Fans who pre-order the standard edition will get a K.S Edition styled Mitsubishi Evolution X in game. Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition adds three K.S Edition styled cars (BMW i8 Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport), access to exclusive deluxe edition character clothing, and increased earnings of in-game currencies Bank and Rep. Anyone who pre-orders Need for Speed Heat in-game from Need for Speed Payback on any format will also get a 10% discount as a Loyalty Reward.
