All Articles: Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2
Xbox One Game Preview fans will definitely want to pay attention to today’s Xbox Games Store update, which includes the official early release of Compulsion’s We Happy Few, a drug-fuelled trip through the 1960s in a retrofuturistic city in England.
Speaking of “retro,” Heart Machine unleashed their overhead action RPG Hyper Light Drifter on the Xbox One. The “Zeldalike” features a unique graphical style, along with “enemies [that] are vicious and numerous” and “hazards [that] will easily crush your frail body.” Slightly less retro is Activision’s Xbox One re-release of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, a pair of action RPGs that were originally released for the Xbox 360. Both games are available separately or in a two-game bundle.
Finally this week, Telltale continues Minecraft: Story Mode with the seventh episode, Access Denied. It’s available to download for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
You can find more information on all of these (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)
The PlayStation Store is now home to a massive list of new releases, including a few sought-after indies, an RPG re-release, and a pair of surprise remasters from Marvel…
Hyper Light Drifter (PS4) is an overhead action RPG from Heart Machine with a uniquely “glitched” retro style. Meanwhile, Tumblestone (PS4) is a multiplayer match-3 puzzler that also includes a massive Story Mode. And Mutant Mudds Super Challenge (PS4 + PS Vita Cross-Buy) is a challenging side-scroller from Renegade Kid.
Looking to new games we’ve seen before, Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force (PS4) is a remastered re-release of an RPG from the PS3 era. And previously available for the PS3, Activision re-released the superhero team-ups Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for the PS4 this week as standalone downloads and a two-game bundle.
Finally this week, Telltale continues their Minecraft: Story Mode with Episode 7: Access Denied on the PS4 and PS3. This time, Jesse and friends challenge an AI that’s run amok.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a complete list of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 will be re-released for PC, PS4, Xbox One this Tuesday
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.”
