With this surprise Switch exclusive, Nintendo has taken an old-school approach - for better and for worse. A decade after Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 came out, the series returns in curious circumstances. This isn't an Activision gig, published to all the platforms of the time. Nor is it a Raven Software or Vicarious Visions development, as the originals were respectively. Rather, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is developed by Team Ninja, the people behind Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden and Nioh, and published by Nintendo exclusively for the Switch. Such a change! Still, despite this publisher and developer shakeup, Nintendo has taken an old-school approach - for better and for worse.The formula follows its predecessors closely: four Marvel characters on-screen, smashing scores of enemies to bits using a combination of light and heavy attacks, special attacks and screen-clearing ultimate attacks. With the camera in the classic view (there's a new "heroic" perspective that puts … [Read more...] about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 review – with medium power comes medium responsibility

By ComicBook Staff - September 5, 2017 07:46 pm EDT Share 0 Comments 0 Copy that, Gold Leader. Yes, another major guest star from the Original Trilogy was in Star Wars Rebels tonight in the epsiode "Secret Cargo" besides Mon Mothma. Mothma was voiced by Genevieve O'Reilly, the actress who also just played the character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but she brought along a few friends: Gold Squadron. Yes, that's Captain Jon "Dutch" Vander there fighting alongside the Ghost crew. Ezra Bridger even becomes the temporary Gold Two! Vander was Gold Leader in Star Wars: A New Hope, played by actor Angus MacInnes. The actor then reprised his role, recording new audio while old recovered clips of him from 1977 played in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. While MacInnes didn't voice Vander this time around - Yuri Lowenthall played Gold Leader in this episode, it's still fun to see another character from the original trilogy and the more recent and closely related Rogue One … [Read more...] about Star Wars: A New Hope Character Makes Surprise Star Wars Rebels Cameo
By ComicBook Staff - September 5, 2017 03:39 pm EDT Share 0 Comments 0 Start Slideshow Star Wars Rebels is rocketing to its season three conclusion, as the four Saturdays of March will see it march to its season finale, and it should be quite the finish. Still left, we have Mon Mothma, hijacked droids, a big showdown between Obi-Wan "Old Ben" Kenobi and no-longer-Darth-just Maul on Tatooine, and the hour-long finale that sees what happens when Thrawn gets fed up and finds the Rebels base. Yeah, it's going to be a crazy month. But it's also going to be a tense one. As Star Wars Rebels inches ever closer to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: A New Hope, the fate of the characters on the crew gets ever cloudier. Sabine Wren left the crew to help her Mandalorian family and people - and that may have saved her from a worse threat. We know from the audio cue cameo that Hera doesn't just make it to at least the Battle of Scarif in Rogue One, … [Read more...] about Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Dead Pool: Who Will Die by Season’s End?
