Yesterday, during their Comic-Con panel, Marvel announced the release of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance Bundle, which features both Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Fans will be able to download the game on July 26th.
The games were rumored to be in development, but now Marvel has confirmed that both the games will be available this Tuesday. Executive Producer of Marvel Ultimate Alliance talked about the game during the panel:
“Well, “Marvel Ultimate Alliance” is one of the most celebrated game franchises in Marvel’s history. It started back in 2006 as the successor to the X-Men Legends series, which was developed by Raven Software. But the Ultimate Alliance games went beyond just the X-Men and brought together Super Heroes from all over the Marvel Universe in an epic action RPG game experience with a huge focus on cooperative play. An “Ultimate Alliance” if you will.”
Jones also said that the game will bring back memories, and has a nostalgic feel to it. The game features an upgrade system for your heroes, that enhances their abilities. Some heroes synergize well with each other, resulting in some amazing combos and unique moves. Jones also stated that the game is both, an online coop and a local coop, which is rare nowadays.
The original Marvel Ultimate Alliance came out back in 2006 for the PS3, PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360, and PC. With the sequel, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, coming out 3 years later. Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 will be available on July 26th for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $39.99 each or as a bundle together for $59.99.
