Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is coming to the Switch, and it was revealed during the Game Awards last week. It's a pretty major announcement, and yet it also managed to stay a secret. In an interview with IGN, Reggie Fils-Aime talks about how the project came together.
“It did. What happens in the world of development is you have companies who have positive experiences in working together, coupled with franchises being available, and the franchise owner wanting to do something with a particular franchise and in this case, those three elements came together in order to create the opportunity for that game. And we love that. And we're constantly looking for those types of opportunities. It's the Team Ninja portion of Koei Tecmo that's working on this. They've got a lot of skills, and it really helped paint a picture of what that game is going to be. We're tremendously excited about it.”
With the third entry in this franchise coming to Switch, many have been wondering if the first two could make their way over to the platform as well. Here's what Reggie had to say.
“I really can't comment on that. That's not been an area of focus for us. What we want to do is we want to make this game a great experience, and certainly with all of the excitement around the overall Marvel universe, we think it's going to be a great opportunity.”
