With the release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order only a little over a month away, it made perfect sense for Nintendo to show more footage of it in their E3 2019 Direct – Well, in addition to the footage shown, they announced it would be receiving an Expansion Pass.

With this brand new, unexpected Expansion Pass, players will be able to expand their ultimate alliance with DLC content from beloved franchises like X-Men, Marvel Knights, and the Fantastic Four.

Whilst Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order launches July 19th on Nintendo Switch, the Expansion Pass content won’t start rolling out till the fall. Though do not let that stop you from purchasing it ahead of time as the Expansion Pass is available for purchase on the eShop right now.
