Marvel vs Capcom 3’s Strategy Guide Is Marvelous

Capcom have released a two character preview of the 400 page MvC3 strategy guide by Brady Games and it’s very impressive. Before you get scared by the picture above, the sequence isn’t as complicated as it looks.


I noticed a few typos while reading through the preview, but for the most part, this is easily the best guide you could ask for. It features basic techniques, combos, advanced techniques, frame data, and so much more. The amount of detail in this guide is almost as overwhelming as it is awesome.

I haven’t been much of a guide user since the PSone days, mainly thanks to the internet. The last one I can even remember buying was for Tekken 3 and that was over 10 years ago. The MvC3 guide, though, is really something else. According to Seth Killian, known players from the fighting game scene worked on it. You can definitely tell.

The Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Signature Series Guide is normally $19.99 but it’s on sale for $11.55 if you purchase it through Amazon. The guide should be available on February 15th when the game launches in North America. You can view the two character preview featuring Ryu and Wolverine over at Capcom Unity.

  1. So this is the reason why I never win

  2. I’ve been absolutely useless at fighters since Tekken 3 but I still enjoy them. MvC3 has been tickling my fancy for a while now so maybe it’s time to fully immerse myself …

  3. Who’s the new writer might I ask?

  4. Looks very detailed, quite surprising to see a guide this nicely put together with fighting sites putting together guides of their own for free.
