I mean, the switch lends itself better to multiplayer in-person games (since it has a variety of controller options and you can play most games 2 player even with just the included joycons) so I'm not THAT bothered by it.

As for the visual style... I could not disagree with you more. MUA2's visual style was AWFUL, a definite step back even compared to how low-poly MUA 1 was, with most of the outfits being an over designed mess of pointless design details and an overall aesthetic that was hell bent on bleaching these larger than life heroes of all their color which often made it hard to see many of these characters while playing. MUA3, by contrast, is clean, colorful, and embraces the comic nature of the characters it's adapting. The style is very reminiscent of the Marvel V Capcom series in that way, and that isn't a bad thing.

Yeah, I'm with you 100% on the look of it, 'Mato.  This look SO much better it isn't even funny.  I think they could go with a less exaggerated cartoon-iness for some characters, but other than that, it looks great.

I think it is a shame that it's only on the Switch.  I guess I won't be playing it.  :(

Only just now got around to checking out the trailer. Looks pretty cool. I do agree about the aesthetics of this versus the second game. As for the Switch. Well, count me among the lucky ones who has the system, so  I may very well get it in the future.

I'm in the Switch boat here but, I'm planning on getting one. Too many ideal games on that system and interesting tech. I'm also a licensed developer for Nintendo now and all I have is a Wii which is of course defunct. The game I'm not too excited about. I'm sure it will be decent but it's a cash in frankly. I think most games are pretty much going to be in the wind once Square begins dropping titles anyways and am hesitant about investing in them. That's a strange thing to say as a retro gamer BTW...investing in games. Remember when it wasn't like that? Investing in a game was whether you were going to invest several hours trying to complete Strider for Sega Genesis lol.

That's cool that you work in game development working on stuff for Nintendo.

When I was little, waving hand by my kneecaps, I recorded myself playing it with a microphone then put on headphones while I slept because I thought it would make me better equipped to beat the game somehow, like subconsciously. Oh and if it goes without saying I probably won't included more Nintendo conversions in my next releases. I know people like those but I'm pretty sure that's a contract violation for me to do that. Well right now anyways, I'll have to look into it I suppose but I don't want to risk my dev license.
