Calling all nostalgic gamers! Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 are being re-released to PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One on July 26. The games will be available for digital download in a bundle for $59.99. The resurrection of the epic action role-playing game comes at the behest of fans. With a combined cast of over 140 characters, including over 20 Marvel superheroes, Ultimate Alliance will allow players to fully delve into the Marvel Universe and promises a cooperative action-packed gaming experience.

Up to four players are allowed to team up on or offline for the action role-playing game. Users can customize their Marvel hero and get to control the way the game progresses, choosing their missions, as well as how to interact with other teams. Each hero is outfitted with power-boosting equipment and each team is given a name, icon and vehicle. Once a team is assembled, it’s time for battle. There are few limits in the game regarding combat: multiple tactics and accessories are available. All that’s left is to devise a strategy on how to save the world and get rid of the bad guys.

The re-release of the franchise’s popular games was officially announced at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. While fans can expect the games to be largely unchanged, a few graphics, UI and performance changes were made to ensure that the games run smoothly with the new platform features on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The neat thing about Ultimate Alliance is that it brings together heroes from all corners of the Marvel Universe with a focus on team building. There are references throughout the game that dedicated players will appreciate. Ultimate Alliance was originally the successor to the X-Men Legends series in 2006. The focus on players creating their own unique Marvel experience is what made it so popular.

When asked whether or not Marvel had any plans to revamp Ultimate Alliance into a franchise, Mike Jones, the executive producer for the re-release, said, “Following the footsteps of a proud Marvel tradition, I’ll say: Anything is possible, True Believers!”
