Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Multiplayer

Here's how multiplayer works in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is a new entry in the long-running hero brawler series, and it's exclusive to Nintendo Switch. It pulls from a huge array of series including X-Men, Avengers, and Spider-Man, with some lesser-known characters thrown in for good measure. And much like the other games in the series, it’s a real blast to play with friends and has a pretty robust selection of multiplayer features. To help you make sense of it all, we’ve put together this Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Multiplayer Guide. We’ll take a look at whether or not the game can be played online, and if there is local co-op multiplayer as well.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Splitscreen Co-Op

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is a real blast to play with pals, so luckily it features full local co-op features. You can team up with 3 friends on one Nintendo Switch console, allowing you all to play the game together. To access the co-op features, head into the game and open up the Pause screen, then select ‘Co-Op’. From here you can select ‘Local’ and you’ll be sharing a Switch in no time.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Online Multiplayer

In addition to splitscreen multiplayer, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 also boasts online multiplayer. As before, head into the main menu and select ‘Co-Op’. From here just select ‘online’ and you can jump in with three other players online. You’ll be able to matchmake with random players, or you can invite people from your friends list.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Local Co-Op Using Wireless

Your last option for playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 with friends is to make use of Nintendo Switch’s Wireless functionality. If you are in the same room as some friends, just head to the Co-Op menu as before, and select ‘Local’. You’ll be able to sync up with three other Nintendo Switch players.
