Marvel is bringing back the Ultimate Alliance series this week. Announced yesterday at Comic-Con, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 will be available to download this Tuesday, July 26, for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Originally released back in 2006 and 2009, respectively, the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series recruited characters from the entire Marvel Universe to save the world in two sprawling co-op action RPGs. Available separately for $39.99 apiece, or bundled together for $59.99, both games will be rebuilt for modern platforms with improved performance and “some UI and graphic enhancements.” While that price might seem steep, Executive Producer Mike Jones wrote on Marvel.com that fans have been asking for this re-release for a while now:

Well, it’s funny; since we started rebuilding our games strategy and going on the road to Comic Cons and gaming events like E3, we’re constantly being asked about Ultimate Alliance. “Are you guys going to do another Ultimate Alliance?” “Can you guys do a re-release of Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2?” It was actually kind of surprising how often it happens. It’s been 10 years since the series began and gamers are still as passionate about “Ultimate Alliance” today as they ever were. So we thought this would be a great way to celebrate an amazing franchise that’s about to hit its 10th anniversary. It’s a perfect time to play these games if you missed them the first time or replay with new friends and new Super Hero dream teams.

Does this re-release mean we might get Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 someday? Jones did his part by telling fans, “Anything is possible.”
