At least some contents of new DLC coming to Nintendo Switch-exclusive game Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order have been discovered, according to new information datamined from the game.

According to dataminers, Beast, Professor X, and Dark Phoenix will all be headed to the game as playable characters plus new story content involving Galactus, and Gwenom, Anti-Venom, and other costumes for existing characters.

Check out the full details:


  • Beast, Professor X and Dark Phoenix mention several team bonsues, including “Inhumans”, which doesn’t currently exist.
  • Medusa has a new voice clip added (possibly select sound). These, to me, signal we may get a playable Medusa and Black Bolt to round out an Inhumans team.
  • Spoken NPC dialogue indicates new Story. The Negative Zone and Doomstadt are explicitly named.
  • Negative Zone mentioned to be very cold by Iceman and that it doesn’t bother him.
  • Doomstadt seems to be in trouble, possibly has vampires. Cable mentions not having enough gear to take on a Celestial, so I think it might involve Galactus. (Remember the eyes at the end?)
  • At one point Cable calls out Annihilus by name and says he’ll squash the future he causes. Annihilus is usually the leader of the Negative Zone, so it seems he’ll be the boss there.
  • New costumes coming: Gwenom, Anti-Venom, Mile Morales hood + vest (in costume), Ms Marvel lightning t-shirt + scarf


An image accidentally uploaded to the game’s official page on (seen on left) supports the above leak, showing costumes datamined to the game that were, apparently, originally supposed to release on December 23rd, 2019.

Instead, the costumes seen in the right image were released.



Two paid DLC packs part of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order Expansion Pass have launched so far: the “Marvel Knights: Curse of the Vampire” pack and the “X-Men: Rise of the Phoenix” pack.

“Shadow of Doom,” the third and final wave, will feature Fantastic Four characters and will arrive this year.
