After beating the radioactive,
magical and often otherworldly crap out of each other in Capcom's excellent Marvel Vs.
series of 2D fighting
games, it seems that the comic giant's major superheroes now find themselves forced to cooperate for the good of the
entire Marvel universe. Activision has officially announced Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
for PC, current and
forthcoming consoles, as well as handheld platforms. I don't know about you, but my hands are usually
first choice when it comes to holding the DS.
Developed by Raven Software, the game will be an action-RPG,
no doubt similar to the X-Men Legends
series (but hopefully a whole lot better). Various levels of
customization are touted, but the one that has us most pleased is the ability to create a custom vehicle for your team.
When I'm done with that, the Fantasticar won't know what hit it.
No word yet on how the DS version will
differ from the rest--would cooperative Wi-Fi play be too much to ask for?
