Nintendo has announced the details of the first DLC pack for Switch exclusive Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.
Marvel Knights: Curse of the Vampire, which comes out 30th September, adds Blade, Moon Knight, Morbius and The Punisher as playable characters.
Blade, famously played by Wesley Snipes in the superb 1998 action movie, Moon Knight, Morbius and The Punisher were shown off at a panel at San Diego Comic-Con overnight. There, Nintendo of America snapped an image showing the character designs, which lean heavily on the characters' comic-book incarnations.

It's worth noting Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3's three planned DLC packs will not be sold separately. You have to buy the £17.99 expansion pass to get access.
Elsewhere, new playable characters Cyclops and Colossus will be released as part of a free update on 30th August, followed by a series of alternate outfits for all of the playable characters in the game after launch through to the first quarter of 2020. The game currently includes just a handful of alternative outfits unlocked by completing trials in the Infinity mode.
