Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Revealed

Capcom has officially announced Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The game is set to release this November for the PS3 and Xbox 360 for $39.99.

The new version of MvC3 features twelve new characters, eight new stages, rebalanced mechanics, and enhanced gameplay modes. You’ll actually be able to spectate matches online now, which is definitely a good thing.

Capcom released a bunch of trailers showing off some of the new characters, including the much requested Strider. Ghost Rider looks pretty neat as well. I noticed that a few of the existing characters have new moves. For instance, Spencer can do a ground pound when he’s in the air. In one of the videos you can see Hawkeye X-factor while in the air. That’s going to be a game changer for sure.

I’m not sure how I feel about this announcement. On one hand, MvC3 needs more characters, rebalanced gameplay, and an improved online mode. On the other, it feels like this could have been extensive DLC. Capcom did mention that more surprises will be revealed soon. Hopefully we’ll actually get to play as Mega Man this time.

  1. Ultimate MvC 3 Arcade Edition out by December. You heard it here first.

  2. Kinda getting bored of having to buy extra versions of Capcom’s fighters, any chance this may arrive as DLC at some point?

  3. Sigh.

  4. Neglected MvC3 when it came out, but I might end up getting this.

  5. Strider looks awesome. The new HUD? Not so much.

    Hopefully those “enhanced gameplay modes” will be worth it though, the original MvC3 was seriously lacking in that department (at least in regards to offline content).

  6. Looks slick…

  7. So glad i didn’t buy MvC3 now!!!

    Seriously, why do capcom insist on doing this sort of thing? Sure there’s money in it, but it surely has to nark the fan base who buy things day one?

    • The hardcore audience is quite happy about this announcement for the most part. Capcom knows that they’re going to buy it on day one again and fans know they’re going to buy it too lol. It’s just how the cycle works.

      • Yeah, I suppose the hardcore audience is what it says on the tin & spend most of their time playing fighters anyway, so it’s not much of a hassle for them (as it is technically like picking up a ‘new’ fighting game I suppose). Seeing it from my own angle though (as I do appreciate a good fighter, but do also invest my time in other games too – Variety is the spice of life & all that!), I know I would be just a little bit annoyed if I had picked up the ‘old’ version for it now to become technically obsolete or superseded at least.

        I had the same thing with SFIV when they released SSFIV – I was one of the early adopters of SFIV & so to hear that they would be doing their old Streetfighter trick of releasing yet another version of the same game (ok it was tweaked quite a lot with quite a few new additions, but technically, it was still the same game) annoyed me a little. I still picked up the new one though, so I guess the business model is sound!!

        Just glad I didn’t pick up the original version of MvC3 the other day when I saw it cheap really! :)

  8. This needs to be released as DLC.
