The new X-Men focused Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 might make me buy a Nintendo Switch

Man, I hate system exclusives. Especially when I don’t have the system a game I really want to play is on. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 has a new trailer featuring the X-Men and it looks pretty amazing. Even without my boy Cyclops featured.

But based on the team photo, Cyclops and Professor X are the only two we haven’t seen so I’m going to assume it’s just a matter of time.

There’s a heavy movie influence in this game right down to a fairly close impression of Ian McKellen for Magneto’s voice. We got to see Wolverine, Beast, Psylocke, Mystique, Juggernaut and Nightcrawler in action in addition to Storm and Wolverine who we already knew were in the game.

It looks like we’re going to have a bit of an Avengers: Infinity War spin on the story with various characters from Black Panther, Magneto, Green Goblin, Ultron and Dormammu holding Infinity Stones and Thanos’ Black Order coming to collect them.

I’m curious how many various locations across the Marvel Universe the story will take us. Hopefully we’ll see places like The Negative Zone, The Savage Land and Knowhere.
