Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: All Secret Modes, Features & Upgrades | Unlockables Guide

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is a surprisingly complex little game. It adds a variety of new features that previous titles lacked — you can play optional Rift Trials to earn XP, equip ISO-8 crystals to enhance individual characters, or spend AEP points to upgrade every hero on your roster. There are a lot of weird little features in this game, and a lot of stuff you can unlock as you play.

There are some surprising unlocks that I absolutely did not expect to see in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.
