ComicCon News: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announced!
In released news from San Diego ComicCon, Capcom has announced that Marvel vs. Capcom 3, (which was just released this past February) is being re-released again this November in a updated version called Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. So this upcoming November, you'll be dishing out damage on Sentinel spammers with Marvel's Ghost Rider and Hawkeye while bringing the pain with Capcom's Firebrand and Strider Hiryu. In addition to the large addition of twelve characters, there will be more features such as online spectator mode (where instead of waiting for others in game lobbies you can watch others fighting while waiting).
Taking a page from Super Street Fighter IV, the game will be released on disc for $39.99 at all retail locations.
While I am a big fan of fighting games, and I did like Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to a good point (until I was the receiving end of every online 500 hit combo with a team of Zero, Wolverine, and Sentinel), I do feel like this felt better as DLC content instead of a released disc version. I mean twelve characters is great but wouldn't it be easier for me to keep my disc of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and just download them instead of running to my store and trading it in and installing it on my 360? Nethertheless, I'll be getting it.
Just received, there is newinformation on the remaining characters have been leaked thanks to the efforts of some fans. Included in the new roster includes Marvel characters Rocket Raccoon, Dr. Strange, Nova, and Iron Fist while Capcom will be getting Vergil, Nemesis, Frank West, and....Phoenix Wright?!?
As if Frank West wasn't surprising enough, Phoenix Wright? Myself and a number of Capcom fans kept voicing for him to appear, but I didn't think they would...but it seems like Capcom listened and gave us what we want. Though....how will he fight? Call Franziska Von Karma to whip Deadpool into submission? Get Gumshoe for police backup?
Actually...I think I may know.
