But, as you might guess, upon hearing the words “Switch only” or “exclusive,” some folks were not so pleased -- namely Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners.

Two thoughts about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3:
1. Interesting that the art style is almost exactly that of the Telltale Avengers game.
2. Bummer that it's only on Switch. Would love to play it but I dislike the Switch so much.— Shad (@PolyNerdic) December 7, 2018

Calm down, guys. Nintendo wanted a great Marvel exclusive, and boy, did they get it. There’s always a good opportunity for Microsoft to get one for Xbox. And don’t forget, Sony gamers, you’ve got Spider-Man.
