One of the many announcements at The Game Awards 2018 which took place this month was Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. The game is exclusive for the Nintendo Switch and is developed by Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja. IGN had the chance to speak to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to get some more information on the project as well as find out whether we can expect other games from the series on the platform.
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,” Fils-Aime told IGN. “And in this case, those three elements came together in order to create the opportunity for that game.
And we love that,” he added. “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.
On the subject of the older games in the series coming to the Nintendo Switch:
I really can’t comment on that. That’s not been an area of focus for us,” Fils-Aime said. 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.
