A new mode has been announced for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that will completely change the way you play the game. Have you ever wanted to customize your team with crazy properties that shouldn’t be possible? Well, that’s exactly what the new Heroes and Heralds mode is all about.
In Heroes and Heralds, you can customize your team with up to three cards to enhance your team in various ways. For example, you can have projectile invulnerability, super armored assists, and attacks that leave the opponent in a dizzy state. There’s even a card that lets you parry attacks, which is a mechanic that hasn’t been seen since it was introduced in Street Fighter III.
The card system seems similar to the new Gems mechanic from Street Fighter x Tekken. However, according to Seth Killian in a recent interview, it’s not actually balanced in UMvC3. Check out the trailer below to see the new mode in action.
Capcom also revealed that Galactus will be a playable character. He will only be available in a mode dedicated to him though, so he’s not actually a part of the normal roster.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is set to hit store shelves on November 15th in North America and on the 18th in Europe. Heroes and Heralds will be released as free DLC sometime after the game launches.
