Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

Post by EphemeristX » 07 Dec 2018, 02:46

..was just announced during the VGAs! It's got Wolverine and Sentinels in it (so far, the only X-Characters shown), and... apparently it's exclusively for the Switch. I hope that's only a timed exclusive, cause I'd be positively gutted.

This isn't a deal with a third-party, Nintendo is the actual publisher of the game. Meaning there is virtually no chance it appears elsewhere. This really blows. I have to get a Switch now.

I'm one of the sensible people who've already got a Switch, so fab news.

For those of you who've not jumped on the bandwagon; I'd thoroughly recommend it as some great first party games, and plenty of third party support. Especially with Smash Bros out...! (Especially if you're like me and have a non-driving commute - it sure shortens my train journeys!).

I plan to buy a Switch at Christmas so this news just made my day. I find it particularly funny reading comments from PS4 owners I know complaining about how its exclusive, considering they have Spider-Man

Well Wolvie was definitely fighting that Sentinel at Xavier's, that was the mansion without a doubt.

Crystal and Wanda! As playable characters! I'm looking forward to seeing them in action. I don't have a Switch although a couple of my friends do so I may just borrow theirs for a few weeks to play this as I can't afford another console rn....

Well that's the thing, why is a Marvel fan expected to buy every console? Just release for all platforms please!

I don't have a PS4, and even though I'd love the new Spider-Man game, it's not going to convince me to hand over that sorta cash for one game.

From an industry model I completely understand why exclusives exists. It's an industry necessity as a console manufacture to ensure exclusives as your differentiator.

I think this actually looks kinda not great. The graphics are nowhere near where they should be now. And I miss X-Men Legends. They never have enough X-characters in these games, and with all five of the GotG film characters and a chunk of the Avengers, I doubt we will get anyone but Wolverine in this one, so I'm sorry but completely uninterested.

If Wolverine is the only X-Character, I'll be disappointed, but I don't think we're looking at the whole roster here. There's no way. I don't think Nintendo would half-ass something like this if they went through the trouble of funding the return of a decade-gone franchise.

Yeah, the graphics aren't even as good as 2, but I think the art direction was intentional.

The Switch, as with all previous Nintendo consoles, does not have the same graphical processing capabilities as the other consoles, so they always have to stylize the art since they can't approach realism.

They said dozens of characters. As in, multiple dozensz I’m hoping for decent X-representation but MUA2 disappointed me. Now, if this was X-Men Legends 3? I’d be ALL. OVER. THIS.

The one thing I loved about MUA2 is that it finally gave Psylocke her due. In XML1 she was the last person you recruited (by far), and the final leg of the game all had enemies strong against telepathy. With no Game+, she was virtually useless. She was a cameo in 2 and then an enemy in MUA1 (even though Cyclops became playable in some versions!). But she came back as a beast in MUA2. I basically played her through the whole game.

I can't remember Psylocke me in MUA2 at all. Was she one of those console specific characters? It has been 10 years, I may have just forgotten her completely

She had a really kick ass costume too, it had a dragon pattern that wound all down her swimsuit. I don't think she was exclusive, but she may have been DLC.

I wouldn't judge the graphics just yet, its early days. Though for this style of game high quality graphics really aren't that essential. The characters are small on the screen, you don't need to be able to see Thors beard hairs

I think there's a massive difference between graphical treatment and the quality of graphics. Much of Nintendo's 1st party output is highly stylised so it looks a good fit.

Yeah, she was DLC. And it was her House of M look.

I honestly would love it if that became her default look everywhere. But she'd have to go back to being Asian first.
