The Game Awards were held on December 6th. The three-hour live stream celebrated the last year in gaming while simultaneously gazing off into the future. Take a look below for all of the family-friendly video game announcements from the show.


Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

We didn’t hear anything about Metroid Prime or Animal Crossing, but we did learn about another Nintendo Switch exclusive.

Team Ninja is a developing a new Marvel Ultimate Alliance game! Ultimate Alliance 3 is going to be focused on Thanos and his Black Order and will include characters from the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and (surprisingly) The X-Men!

Previous games in the series have been light on the strategy and heavy on the action. I’m ok with that though. The idea of playing a Guantlet-like game with my kids while we play as our favorite superheroes.

Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled

Crash Bandicoot is experiencing a bit of a resurgence. The N-Sane Trilogy that released last year was one of the best selling games of the year. It only makes sense to bring out another great Crash game.

Crash Team Racing is being remade by Beenox and will release on June 21, 2019.

Anthem Demo Coming Soon

Demo #2: Will be, essentially, and Open Beta. It will be accessible by everyone from February 1 through February 3.

Persona’s Joker Coming To Smash

Nintendo announced the first character to be included in the Fighter Pass for Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. It was a huge surprise to everyone there when they revealed Joker, the protagonist from Persona 5.


Fortnite’s The Block

Fortnite Creative was announced the day before the show. That was exciting news in and of itself, but Epic had more up their sleeves. They announced a new named location on the Battle Royale map called “The Block.”

This new zone replaces Risky Reels and will feature user-generated content from within the Creative Mode. They didn’t provide details, but they mentioned that there would be some sort of voting system to help choose what was going to appear on The Block.
