    April 27, 2006 - By the hoary hosts of Hoggath! Today Activison announced its plans for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. Developed by Raven Software and C.B. Cebulski the action/role-playing game will feature the largest roster of comic book characters ever stuffed into one video game.



    Of the more than 140 Marvel characters over 20 will be playable. Players can take on the great power and great responsibility over comic book favorites such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Blade and Captain America.

    "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance delivers a new twist on action/RPGs where players' actions and choices ultimately determine what happens to the Marvel universe," states Will Kassoy of Activision. "This coupled with the game's enormous character roster will deliver an action-packed experience that comic book fans have been waiting for."

    Ultimate Alliance will allow players to create their own team name, icon and vehicle, and well as establish their team reputation as they play through their choice of multiple missions. Tweakable character leveling will give gamers the choice to focus on individual heroes or team-wide upgrades. With avengers assembled battle Marvel super baddies through multiple environments with all manner of combat moves and super hero powers.

    Multiplayer modes will let players join friends and fight evil do-ers on and off line in co-op modes. An in-game stat tracking mode will allow you to see how you rate against others.

    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is slated for deployment on all next-gen gaming systems, including Wii, this fall.

    And this little bit from From Wikipedia

    The so far revealed definitive list of playable characters are:

    Wolverine
    Captain America
    Thor
    Doctor Strange
    Spider-Man
    Ghost Rider
    Elektra
    Blade
    Thing


    Bosses
    Known bosses are:

    Doctor Doom
    Galactus
    Scorpion


    Non-Playable Characters


    Locations
    From the early screenshots and preview, you will be able to visit:

    Atlantis
    Skrull Throneworld
    SHIELD HQ



    Mind = Blown. Can not get this game and system ("Wii") soon enough.

    Eh I doubt it will be any good and it losses points for having the word ultimate in the title while having nothing to do with the Ultimate marvel universe

    Well, I don't see how Ultimate has anything to do with the Ultimate Universe, since it was a word long before 'Ultimate Universe'.

    Anyway, I'm so excited, I hope it plays just like X-Men Legends, only i na larger playground.

    With Raven Software developing, it shouldn't turn out as boring as the X-Men: Legends games.

    Blame Marvel on that one. I even thought it was the Ultimate Universe until I saw a pic of a white Nick Fury.

    Anyway, I hope Hulk is a playable character. Hulk and Havok. Havok's cool.
