Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is out now for the Nintendo Switch. And while Nintendo, Team Ninja, and Marvel are yet to confirm how many heroes would be playable in-game, that hasn’t stopped dataminers from unearthing a concrete number. In addition to the previously announced 34 heroes playable at launch, Loki and Thanos have been unlocked as well. Furthermore there are four more additions to the roster expected. These are Vision, Valkyrie, Medusa, and Black Bolt. Plus, at San Diego Comic Con, Marvel revealed Blade, Morbius, Moon Knight, and Punisher as playable characters with the upcoming Marvel Knights DLC. While this takes the total number of heroes upto 46 when you account for Cyclops and Colossus being added on August 30.
