Plus how they compare to their live-action counterparts
The upcoming Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order features a large cast of super heroes and villains that even non-fans of comics have come to know (if not love) over the years. These larger-than-life figures have starred in dozens of Hollywood blockbusters over the past two decades or...
I am Iron Man('s stunt double)
The internet can be a merciless place. For all the hype and goodwill an incredible reveal can generate from fans, if there's something not quite right about a game or its trailer, the mood can turn very quickly. Square Enix's upcoming Avengers game isn't coming to Switch, but its E3 reveal trailer has arguably given...
"Anything could happen"
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a pretty big deal. Actually, it's a very big deal, and Marvel is now the latest in a string of companies which has had a representative discuss how great it would be to form an alliance (no pun intended) with the Nintendo heavy hitter. In recent months, we've seen the folks be
Time to end the fight
Avengers: Endgame is expected to be one of the biggest movies of 2019. It arrives later this week and will conclude the battle between Thanos and Marvel's all-star cast. If you think back to when Infinity War was released last year, you might recall a special promotion in the free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite. The...
Who needs Tetris 99?
The above photo might look like an old school Nintendo advertisement, but it was actually taken quite recently on the set of the upcoming Marvel film, Avengers: Endgame. This image was shared on Twitter by the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and shows Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) on a couch together...
The mouse is in the house
During an investors briefing, Disney officially revealed its new digital streaming service Disney+, due out on 12th November this year. The service will include five main hubs covering Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. The best news about this reveal for Nintendo fans is the company's intentions to...
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was originally revealed at the Game Awards at the end of last year. It's expected to be the biggest and best entry yet in the franchise, bringing together a cast of Super Heroes and Super Villains from across the Marvel Universe. If you missed it, the title will be developed by Koei Tecmo...
"That's not been an area of focus for us"
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is coming exclusively to the Switch in 2019. Given the current hype surrounding the Marvel cinematic universe following its first ten years, this is a major coup for Nintendo. Shortly after the Game Awards, IGN spoke to Nintendo of America's President Reggie...
Unite and fight
Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order when it arrives exclusively on the platform in 2019. The game is being developed by Koei Tecmo Games/Team Ninja and will be published by Nintendo. The previous installment in this series was released nearly 10 years ago. The full PR following the...
"A superhero in his own right"
Comic book legend Stan Lee has passed away at 95 years of age. He was the co-founder and editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics and responsible for the co-creation of many well-known superheroes such as Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and X-Men. The loss of Lee is rather significant to the video game industry as his creations...
A Pinch Of Salt Might Be Advisable
Footage has surfaced online of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 running on what appears to be a Nintendo Switch console. The video shows the fighting title running on Switch - complete with the correct button prompts - and even shows the game's icon at the end, when whoever is recording the footage exits to the home menu...
It's about time
The LEGO effect has benefited many a popular fiction franchise since 2005, from Star Wars to Jurassic Park to Harry Potter. Throughout that time, though, there’s arguably been no better fit for the Danish toy brand than Marvel. With the comic giant’s peerless roster of colourful characters, developer Traveller’s Tales has the...
When we had the chance to try out Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 recently we took the opportunity to ask the developer about the Wii U and Switch versions. We’d really enjoyed playing Lego City: Undercover on Switch and understandably wanted to know how the next Lego iteration would work on the new system. TT Games seems to be...
"That was a huge risk for Marvel, but they did it and look at them now"
Two leading Hollywood producers are of the opinion that Nintendo should get into movies on its own terms, emulating the trailblazing approach taken by comic giant Marvel. Dissatisfied with outside attempts to adapt its properties for the big screen, Marvel put the rights to ten...
Lego Avengers has just been released on Wii U and 3DS in North America and it would seem that it contains a pretty big hint regarding the next Lego-themed video game release. During the game's credit sequence, Peter "Star-Lord" Quill's cassette player and headset are shown, which - given that the Guardians of the Galaxy don't feature in...
Six films covered in total
The forthcoming Lego Marvel's Avengers video game for Wii U and 3DS will cover more than just the two Avengers movies released so far, it has been revealed. Given the title, you'd be let off for assuming that only Avengers (which was called Avengers Assemble in the UK to avoid confusion with the cult TV show of the same...
Pre-order at GameStop and get a Silver Centurion Iron Man LEGO mini figure
If you're a fan of LEGO games and The Avengers, then you are in for a treat as LEGO Marvel's Avengers is getting ready to assemble on the Wii U and 3DS on 29th January 2016 in Europe and on 26th January in North America; this is perhaps a little later than expected, though...
Building up the hype for E3
Warner Bros. has just lifted the lid on the E3 trailer for its next big Lego game - Lego Marvel's Avengers. Developed by UK studio TT Games - as always - this new offering will be hitting a wide range of systems at the end of this year, including the Wii U and 3DS. Based on the two recent Avengers movies, the video game...
Another Marvel favourite
As we approach E3, news of all things Nintendo comes thick and fast — in fact, you never quite know where it’s going to pop up next. Today we had news of a Wii U Disney Infinity 2.0 pack including Venom. Venom is one of Spider-Man's arch-enemies and is a slightly unusual character – not least as the name has belonged...
All the details inside
Disney Infinity has done impressively this year. From a standing start it sliced a sizeable portion of the toy-meets-video-game market for itself. While some would suggest this was predictable with such a rich array of household favourite characters to draw on, Avalanche Software still needed to execute an enjoyable game that...
Interestingly referred to as "version 2.0"
After Disney's acquisition of Marvel in 2009, it seemed fitting that speculation would crop up regarding the usage of the comic book giant's characters in the NFC-driven Disney Infinity. After all, that game's universe-merging crossover potential would only be better served by the appearances of...
Best known for its work on two Wii first-person shooters
Nintendo's official page for the 3DS version of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 reveals that the developer of the title will be Illinois, US-based High Voltage Software, and not Beenox as previously thought. Perhaps best known by Nintendo fans for its work on the 2009 Wii FPS titles The Conduit and
Another bag of bricks
With a great franchise comes a great number of releases. In the case of the LEGO video games series, their multi-platform games have hit just about every major gaming console of the past 10 years. Having no desire to be left out of the series’ success, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril brings an original adventure...
There was really no way to predict it so long ago, but the modern series of LEGO franchised games are undeniably great. When the first LEGO Star Wars game hit store shelves in 2005, it’s probably safe to assume that Traveller’s Tales didn’t foresee the growth that the franchise would go on to enjoy. Eight years and more than 10...
Swinging on to Nintendo systems next spring
Activision and Marvel Entertainment have announced a new video game based on the upcoming feature film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is coming to Wii U and 3DS next spring. Developed by Beenox — the studio also responsible for the Wii U and Wii versions of last year's The Amazing Spider-Man — to coincide...
And lots of others, naturally
In the coming months we're going to see an epic face-off, of sorts. Nope, we're not talking about the Wii U vs Xbox One vs PS4, or even 3DS vs anything with a small-ish screen, but a battle between superheroes for the public's affections. Yep, we have Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure coming to the Wii U and...
No decision made as yet
Yesterday Disney Interactive revealed that Disney Infinity — possibly its most ambitious project yet — would be coming to Wii U, Wii and 3DS this summer, as well as mobile devices and other platforms. The game allows the player to bring real-world toys to life by scanning them into the game in the same way that...
We’re big fans of LEGO games here at Nintendo Life. Recently we’ve seen the likes of Lord of the Rings, Batman and the DC Superheroes receive the LEGO treatment while original game LEGO City: Undercover is due out on Wii U soon. The DC Universe of characters won’t be the only ones to get their own LEGO game as it has now been...
Wii U has had quite a lot of third party support since its launch and no publisher has backed the system more than Ubisoft, which is releasing games left, right and centre. We already have the likes of exclusive ZombiU and multi-platform release Assassin's Creed III, Rayman Legends will be making an appearance in a few months, and now...
It's summer, now traditionally the season of the superhero, so Ubisoft has released some new screenshots and a CG trailer of Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth to celebrate. There's also some cool key art from Marvel artist Leinil Yu. Marvel Avengers is coming to Wii U later on this year and will give you the chance to get to grips with...
The latest in Sega's comic book titles
Sega's rather busy on the old Marvel Comics licence these days, having brought Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk to Wii and DS, with another title based on the upcoming Thor movie currently in development. The company has also just announced it's bringing Captain America: Super Soldier to Wii and DS...
