Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is rapidly approaching, with that tasty 19th July release date getting ever closer. To get us all hyped and ready for the game, Nintendo has shared a new X-Men-focused trailer.

Aside from being all dramatic and epic in equal measure, the trailer has confirmed the appearance of several new characters. We already knew about a handful of X-Men characters being present in the game - like Wolverine, for example - but now we can see Magneto, Mystique, Juggernaut, Cyclops, Colossus, and Professor X students Psylocke and Beast. It would also seem that Sentinels are included as a common enemy.

At present, it's not fully clear whether or not all of these characters will be playable or simply part of the game's plot, but we're sure X-Men fans will be happy to see their inclusion regardless.

Over the last couple of weeks, we've also been treated to seven minutes of gameplay footage and further information such as the game's file size. Make sure to check those out if you missed them the first time around.

Do you plan on picking this up in July? Happy to see all of these X-Men characters make the cut? Let us know in the usual place.
