Assemble your ultimate team of Marvel Super Heroes when the MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE series returns for the first time in 10 years, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch™ system, with MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order on July 19!

The new action RPG has you teaming up with friends to prevent galactic devastation at the hands of the mad cosmic tyrant Thanos and his ruthless warmasters, The Black Order.

In the bonus clip above, Earth's Mightiest Show has the top 5 things you need to know to get you started with the game — as well as 5 hot tips to get you started once you have MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order in hand!

1. Unlock your potential

Each character has up to 4 abilities which you can unlock as you move up in level.

Hot Tip: Use an experience cube as a quick way to unlock a new ability for your favorite character and help them reach their full potential!

2. Team up with timing

Characters can amplify their abilities by synergizing with another teammate who has a compatible ability.

Hot Tip: Landing a synergy attack can not only lead to greater damage, but can even stun stronger enemies and bosses when performed at the right time.

3. Team up your teams

You don't need to pick 4 characters of the same team to gain a team bonus; just have 2 or 3 from the same team can boost your team.

Hot Tip: Be sure to experiment with various team combos to find the right set of bonuses that work best for you.

4. Don't be afraid to be passive aggressive

Each character has either passive or active abilities that make them unique from each other. Experiment with each character as their unique ability might be what you need to clear that hard to beat challenge.

Hot Tip: Hulk has attack armor which allows him to blow through enemy attacks while Wolverine's healing factor allows him to recover vitality while idling.

5. Go extreme in your Boss Battles

Alliance extreme attacks are your character's strongest ability. Using them at the right time against a Boss is the quickest way to stagger them or do big damage.

Hot Tip: Choose wisely between the 2 alliance extreme attacks during Boss Battles to increase your chances of victory.
