If you’ve played some of Team Ninja’s previous games such as Ninja Gaiden, you know how difficult they can be. Apparently that toughness rubbed off on the team when Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was in development. According to producer Yosuke Hayashi, Marvel Games told Team Ninja that the Switch game was too difficult, which led to adjustments being implemented.

Hayashi told IGN:

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order has received a new update, bringing the game up to Version 1.0.2.

According to the patch notes, this only corrects an issue when it came to players selecting characters more than once. The note can be viewed below.

Marvel writer Marc Sumerak lent his talents to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Rather than piggybacking off of the previous two entries, this game starts from scratch, and Sumerak had to figure out how to bring the huge roster together in a cohesive way.

Nintendo published a new interview this week that examines the story in greater detail. Sumerak discussed how he went about writing for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, the challenges involved, and more.

Here’s the full discussion:

My Nintendo is celebrating the launches of Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order with new rewards. Along with printable boxart covers, there are also a pair of wallpapers. Everything is priced at 50 Platinum Points each.

All of these rewards can be ordered on My Nintendo here. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is out now on Switch.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order has three DLC packs on the way as part of its Expansion Pass. The first of these, Marvel Knights: Curse of the Vampire, was given its first details at Comic-Con this week. Blade, Moon Knight, Morbius, and The Punisher will all be added as playable characters.

Going by Nintendo UK’s website, the Marvel Knights DLC will launch on September 30. We can’t help but wonder if this is a placeholder date, especially since Nintendo has only committed to a fall release window previously. Still, a September launch is realistic.

As for the other two DLC packs in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, they’ll feature the X-Men and Fantastic Four.
