Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is one of the most anticipated games of 2019, and it is set to arrive soon. Little is currently known about the forthcoming Marvel title, but it seems that developer Team Ninja and publisher Nintendo are intent on changing that. Gameplay and ability details for Miles Morales' Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel have previously released, and now it seems that it's Spider-Gwen's turn.

For those not in the know, not only is Spider-Gwen featured in Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse movie, but she's also had a few successful comic book runs. Set on Earth-65, her series follows the story of a Gwen Stacey who becomes Spider-Woman and her adventures after Peter Parker, her closest friend, accidentally turns into the Lizard in envy of her. And her heroic gameplay abilities for the forthcoming Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 have been revealed.

In a manner similar to the gameplay of Miles Morales' Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen is a quick, ranged, and defensive character. She comes with some area attacks and can warp above enemies, giving her a lot of mobility, even beyond her ability to swing across the playing field like Miles Morales and Earth-616's Peter Parker. Beyond her superhuman strength, speed, and stamina, Spider-Gwen has 4 core abilities as part of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

  • Swing Time
  • Legit Beatdown
  • Catchy Attack Name
  • Disappearing Act

Swing Time is area swing attack that uses the momentum from a string of web in the air, and tapping the attack button will lengthen the attack. Legit Beatdown creates a giant web ball that is swung in a circle, hitting all Ultimate Alliance 3 enemies. Catchy Attack Name sees Spider-Gwen shoot a series of web blasts straight in front of her, with tapping attack producing even more webbing. And finally, Disappearing Act gives her the ability to warp into the air above her enemies and unleash a devastating slam attack, with holding the attack button allowing the player to aim.

With 27 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 characters confirmed so far and more presumably to be announced, players can probably expect more character abilities to be revealed prior to the actual release.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is launching July 19, 2019, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
