We have played some very good Marvel games in recent years, but sadly also some very bad ones too unfortunately. One of the good games is undoubtedly Marvel Ultimate Alliance and we are wondering why there hasn’t been a huge demand to see a Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 game on PS4 and Xbox One yet.
If you haven’t played either of the Ultimate Alliance games yet, you really should as they are arguably one of Marvel’s finest games to date – bearing in mind we grew up with classics such as Separation Anxiety on the SNES. The first Ultimate Alliance game was developed by Raven Software, while the sequel was handled by Vicarious Visions.
Both games were received very well among critics and fans, which is why we are surprised that there hasn’t been huge talk for a third game yet. We would love to see Ultimate Alliance 3 turn out to be the first big Marvel game on next-gen consoles and we’re willing to bet that most of you feel the same.
The graphics of the first two titles were obviously lacking compared to the excellent gameplay, but just imagine what Raven Software and Vicarious Visions could do instead on next-gen hardware.
If and when the game is announced, we also expect the added hardware to be of massive benefit to fans in terms of what kind of roster we can look forward to. The first two games had huge rosters by themselves, but the PS4 and Xbox One could be able to support almost every well known Marvel superhero there is – split between playable and DLC of course.
With the endless Marvel storylines, a potential Ultimate Alliance plot could be limitless as well, so it wouldn’t be exactly hard for a developer to think about a story – they’d just have to put the nuts and bolts together to make it work.
For ideas though, check out this amazing fan concept on what potential Ultimate Alliance 3 characters there could be and how a story would work for the game.
