Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Bundle Coming to Playstation 4 Today

By Kelly Packard,
The successor to the original Xbox/PS2/GameCube era's X-Men Legends series, Marvel Ultimate Alliance is usually one of the first games that many players remember experiencing on the Playstation 3, or one of the last games that they experienced on the Playstation 2. Boasting four-player online and local co-op, it was a great title to just jump into the shoes of one of the Marvel heroes and start beating up bad guys. In 2009, it got a sequel, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. Now, almost ten years after the original's launch, Marvel has announced that current-gen versions of the pair of Ultimate Alliance titles will be available on the Playstation Store today.

According to Mike Jones, executive producer of the re-releases, Marvel was constantly being asked about a sequel or a re-release of the first two games.

"It’s been 10 years since the series began and gamers are still as passionate about Ultimate Alliance today as they ever were," said Jones.

The re-releases aim to be as faithful to the originals as possible but will have improved performance, updated UI and graphics, as well as adding compatibility with the features of current-gen systems.

The updated versions of Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 will be available today on Playstation 4. They will be available individually for $39.99 US or as a bundle for $59.99 US.

As for a sequel, when asked about it Jones said: "Anything is possible, True Believers!"
