Victor Von Doom has assembled the greatest villians his world has to offer. But there are other worlds than theirs...

Together with the diabolical Albert Wesker, a villian from another such world, this unholy alliance will join their respective universes in an effort to conquer both.

But doing so has come with a terrible price. A great and powerful threat has been awakened... a threat that will set into motion a battle the likes of which neither world has ever known.

A battle that will decide the fate of two worlds!

Since the game is overtaking the discussion at the Game Hangout thread, I decided to create a new thread for it. :amuse

Let me know if I'm missing anything.

July 22, 2010, 04:59 PM
Awesome thread Riki! Plus you always seem to deliver with news on this game so we will have a lot to talk about. So far the character I'm dying to play as is Chris Redfield. I really like how the implemented all his weapons into this came to the point of even using Proximity bombs which were something I always found to virtually be worthless while playing Resident Evil :XD. Its good to see that they are also getting innovative by including a non human character like Amateratsu, I don't know much about her but it is interesting to see something without arms and legs fight on par with people. So far Dead Pool and Dante seem like they are going to be high tiers and they do indeed have some pretty insane movements. But apparently all the balancing hasn't been completed in the game yet so I think its still too early to create a tier list.

July 22, 2010, 05:32 PM
My brothers would probably pick Ryu since he is easy to use though Deadpool looks fun to play as. :XD

The official MvC3 T-shirt (http://kotaku.com/5593964/t+shirt-teases-viewtiful-joe-and-dormammu-for-marvel-vs-capcom-3) for Comic-Con hinted at two new characters: Viewtiful Joe and Dormammu.

July 22, 2010, 05:37 PM
HAHAHA o man that does look like Viewtiful Joe, that would be pretty interesting to see him in the game. My personal favorite though is that I'm dying to see and am rooting for Wesker!!! :shakefist He would be a perfect fit for this game and a nice addition. He's really badass and has a bunch of unique moves and would really go well. Plus his character is good as well and the comments he would make would be pretty sweet as well. This game already is amazing looking but Wesker being in it would just send me over the top!

July 22, 2010, 05:44 PM
Wesker is the main villain for Resident Evil, correct? If so, I think he will be included since the writer did say that he enjoyed writing the story of Street Fighter and Resident Evil bad guys.

July 22, 2010, 05:54 PM
That is a pretty good hint. Now though I would be disappointed to not have him though after hearing a comment like that. Fighting games always need a healthy mix of good and bad guys and Wesker is a perfect one for the Capcom side. He's strong and fast (practically warps space and time even though he's not actually warping :XD.) I just find that his move set would be quite interesting and would definitely have a lot to offer.

Another rumor I've heard is that people want Phoenix Wright in the game. Now if Capcom could pull that off then they are really gods. :XD. They would have to make a bunch of original moves for him though, but either way he would also be an interesting addition.

July 23, 2010, 05:56 PM
IIRC, Phoenix Wright was supposed to be included in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, but one of his attacks would unbalance the game so I don't know if they would include him or not. :XD

Though they had come up with an attack that used his catch-phrase "Igiari!" ("Objection!" in English), with the letters themselves used to attack the opponent, they found that localization would have changed the four-character phrase (in kanji) to a ten-letter word and would have unbalanced the game.

Apparently, Capcom has confirmed that Phoenix Wright won't be in the game.
New screenshots and videos (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/07/23/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_new_challengers_appear!) are out! Yeah, I think Thor and Ammy were not supposed to be revealed yet but someone at Marvel accidentally messed up. :sweat

Anyway, the producer of Ghost Trick said that if there are a lot of fan demand for Phoenix Wright and/or Cecil Edgeworth, he would bug the MvC3 producers on their behalf. ^^

July 23, 2010, 06:08 PM
......My jaw just dropped at Amaterasu's moves.....Like Honestly I wasn't expecting her to be THAT awesome! It was fast and fluid and I absolutely loved what she did. Those were some really nice combos and her special was pretty flashy (even though I have no idea what it was :sweat)

Thor was sweet as well. I couldn't help but laughing when he goes "I dedicate this fight to Odin!" I fell out of my chair. His hammer action is pretty sweet especially when he combos it in the air. I like how he looks as well.

Man its always a pleasure when you deliver information Riki, Keep it coming! :amuse

July 23, 2010, 06:43 PM
already got my team in my head.. Dante-main Wolverine-sub Amaterasu-sub

might switch wolverine if we get someone really aweasome from the Onimusha series hopefully Samonosuke not Soki

July 24, 2010, 03:16 PM
I'm watching Capcom's live stream right now. According to them, Dante's Level 3 move has some bugs right now so he has 18 new moves instead.

Super-Skrull has a piledriver attack and both he and Thor have unblockable moves (punch or kick). Ammy has a time attack, which can slow down time. Her whip can reach the entire screen and she can switch between the whip and sword.

Apparently, Trish is kinda cheap because she can lay down a trap and throw her sword at her opponent. Unfortunately, it looks like Ryu isn't good in the game. Ryu does not have Akuma's dive kick or an air dash. According to one of the players who competed in the MvC3 tournament, Ryu's super is the only best move so far.

Gene from Godhand will not be in the game.

I might miss some info because it's hard to write and listen to the live chat at the same time. :sweat
Besides Phoenix Wright and Gene, two more characters have been confirmed NOT to be in the game: Punisher and Ghost Rider.

July 24, 2010, 03:19 PM
I woulnd't wan't Ghost Rider, although Punisher would have actually been a bit interesting. He's one of the more normal Marvel guys so I think he would have actually been a nice balance to the marvel side of things, but o well.

I know its supposed to have less characters than MvC2? How many are we expecting for this game?

July 24, 2010, 03:21 PM
From what I read online, at least over 30 characters though they might add more via DLC. One of the Capcom workers has a confirmed list of characters but it hasn't been finalized yet.

Well thats nice that there is hope for more because I having that many characters in MvC2 was one of things that made it very appealing. I know things can be overkill sometimes but I never thought that one was really. I think 40 would be an ideal number for this game IMO.

July 24, 2010, 05:57 PM
im sure was ment be 25 or something like that they want solid movesets not flabby roster where characters dont get played ...not liking Chris Redfield looks slow his moveset rather have had Jill back...altho waiting for Wesker to be announced see if he quick attacker.

edit: IGN has confirmed that none of the Fantasic Four will be playable characters ....oh n there is street fighter vs tekken game coming out next year or sooner

August 18, 2010, 09:06 AM
Luckily, someone at wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_vs._Capcom_3:_Fate_of_Two_Worlds#Playable_characters) got some info that I missed.

Other characters confirmed to be absent by Niitsuma include Daredevil, Emma Frost, Gene, Ghost Rider, Punisher, Phoenix Wright, and characters from Rival Schools and Power Stone.

I posted more info about Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken X Street Fighter at the Game Hangout thread. :amuse

Well thats nice that there is hope for more because I having that many characters in MvC2 was one of things that made it very appealing. I know things can be overkill sometimes but I never thought that one was really. I think 40 would be an ideal number for this game IMO.

Sometimes I think less is better though. Blazblue has only 12 characters and it was pretty good.

New updates:
- No felynes (Monster Hunter series)
- There will a lot of Megaman references in the background
- No cyberbots
- There might be a collector's edition but of course, Capcom wants to know what fans want. So far OST, art book, and fight stick seem to be very popular based on the live chat conversation.
- New characters will be announced next month
- They are going to use the model art instead of Shinkiro (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinkiro)'s art in the game.
- Capcom is trying to add recording to the online play.
- No color editor but there will be different colors for 2nd and 3rd players
- At least 10 stages
- Marvel characters will only speak English
- They will announce about the music soon.
- Someone asked about whether or not Onimusha characters will be in the game but they didn't say anything about it.

No more information for now. They don' want to reveal anything else or they might get in trouble.
The Mega Man Network has posted a snippet of Capcom Unity's Comic-Con interview (http://www.themmnetwork.com/2010/07/22/mega-man-inadvertently-revealed-in-marvel-vs-capcom-3/) with Niitsuma (MvC3 producer). It's mostly about how they're hinting that there will be a Mega Man character in the game.
Siliconera has posted their interview (http://www.siliconera.com/2010/07/30/marvel-vs-capcom-3-interview-covers-character-selection-and-game-balance/) with Ryoto Niitsuma. Here are the interesting tidbits:

- No original characters this time
- Two of the Marvel stages are Daily Bugle stage and the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier stage
- Each character has his or her own ending, but Capcom is currently trying to incorporate the overall story with all of the characters
- There will be a few unlockable and hidden characters, but most of them will be playable at the beginning
- Niitsuma might consider having character DLCs
- There will be no characters from Rival School and Strider may or may not be in the game.

Capcom is going to make some more announcements at Gamescom (http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/07/30/marvel_vs_capcom_gamescom/), which is on Aug. 18th. This is most likely about new characters since they did promise they will reveal new ones next month.

A new video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJlS2pWRn68) but I think it's just the Japanese version of the one shown in Comic-con.
Capcom Unity posted a translation of Niitsuma's blog report (http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog/2010/08/09/marvel_vs_capcom_3_dev_blog:_post-comiccon_) of Comic Con.

However, on the live stream, I may have said too much... I think the promotion manager is gonna be angry with me for all the answers I gave. But personally, I wanted the players to feel that they could close the gap between themselves and the people who make the game. I really enjoyed it.

In the game rom for Comic-Con, a few characters got some new moves and we made a lot of changes to the game balance from E3. So I thought that the game felt a lot more like an entry in the Marvel vs Capcom series.

If I really get into the details, this will become long so I'll save that for another day. For the E3 build, perhaps the game felt more like Tatsunoko vs Capcom, but for this time at Comic-Con, I felt the game balance was much more closer to Marvel vs Capcom 2. That's not to say that the game is MvC2 of course, but just that it felt closer to that game nuance-wise.

Well, we are planning to reveal more characters in the upcoming days, and these guys will help to bring out that Marvel vs Capcom series feeling, not to mention their own unique features that we are working on.

So, there might be things like adding a flight ability to a character, or a game system that only one character can use. We're going to be experimenting with various things, so I hope you are all looking forward to it.

Next month is GamesCom in Germany, but Capcom will not have a booth there. However, I'm thinking I would like to announce something new, so please keep your eyes peeled for that.
MvC3 assistant producer wrote a blog entry (http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog/2010/08/13/marvel_vs_capcom_3_dev_blog:_gearing_up_for_gamescom). He hinted that they will introduce a new promo trailer and there might be new characters announcement at Gamescom.

I think it's funny the reason that Marvel characters always win in the demo is because Capcom hasn't finished the win poses of their characters. :XD
Dormammu and Viewtiful Joe have been officially announced at Gamescom (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/08/17/gamescom_2010:_marvel_vs._capcom_3_-_introducing_dormammu__viewtiful_joe). Click the link for screenshots.

August 18, 2010, 09:54 AM
Sweet! 2 more characters!!! Viewtiful Joe, although I've never played the games, seems like he will be an interesting addition and Dormammu just looks pure evil :XD.

August 19, 2010, 10:32 AM
have they shown Frank West from Dead Rising yet...he siloheutte is obvious he in it ..just wondering if they just gona copy his move set from CvsTenu .

August 20, 2010, 09:27 AM
He hasn't been announced yet, but I'll add him to the unconfirmed list.
Gametrailers has posted a gameplay video (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gc-10-marvel-vs/703223) but it's taken from a camera so you can't actually see it real well.
New character videos (http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2010/08/20/new_marvel_vs_capcom_3_character_videos) are out!

August 20, 2010, 09:56 AM
despite being epic and awesome , MvC games always come with this downside of having unlimited numbers of infinite combos .pretty much kills all the fun on pro-arcader level .. it has always been this way since Marvel Super Heroes , Xmen vs Street Fighter , MvC 1-2 etc ..

September 10, 2010, 08:48 AM
New intervew (http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/29904/QA_Producer_Talks_Updating_Marvel_vs_Capcom_For_Modern_Audiences.php) is up!
Capcom has posted new trailers (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/08/26/new_mvc3_gameplay_videos_show_off_amaterasu_and_super_skrulls_level_3_hypers), which show off Amaterasu and Super Skrull's Level 3 Hypers.
Niitsuma hinted that more characters (http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/09/02/mvc3_tgs_reveals/) and info will be revealed prior to TGS.
Capcom Unity has posted Niitsuma's blog (http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog/2010/09/02/marvel_vs_capcom_3_dev_blog:_gamescom_is_a_wrap!) about Gamescom. One interesting bit:

Changing gears a bit, last time Kadowaki, the assistant producer on the game, said that it was just about time to reveal a certain something to the public. Well, that "something" is a character reveal of course, but in our final checks we hit a bit of a snag. So we had to change up the characters.

Which means that, yes, the reveal that Dormammu is playable not the "something" that Kadowaki-san was talking about. We're ironing out the kinks, and we'll be able to properly reveal this character very soon, so please be on the lookout for that.
The latest trailer (http://www.siliconera.com/2010/09/09/tron-bonne-spotted-in-new-marvel-vs-capcom-3-trailer/) reveals a new character - Tron Bonne from Mega Man Legends (Rockman Dash).

Chaotic Neutral
September 10, 2010, 03:12 PM
This game promises to be a real mind-blowing experience.

September 16, 2010, 04:05 PM
X-23 (from the X-Men series) has joined the brawl! Capcom also revealed alternative costumes (e.g. Gray Hulk and Deadpool in Wolverine's costume) and a new stage, Asgard, which is obviously Thor's stage.

Click HERE (http://capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/09/15/tgs_2010:_marvel_vs._capcom_3:_x-23_and_tron_bonne_enter_the_battle) for new trailers.

September 17, 2010, 01:02 PM
Does anybody know if Balrog will appear in this game? Or is the entire Capcom roster now confirmed?

September 18, 2010, 08:50 AM
It hasn't been confirmed that Balrog will be in the game yet, and I doubt that the entire roster has been revealed now. Capcom still have several months to reveal new characters.
Spider-Man and Albert Wesker are now confirmed to be in the game (http://www.siliconera.com/2010/09/18/spider-man-and-albert-wesker-confirmed-for-marvel-vs-capcom-3/)!

Check out their character (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGK5_bD4zBo) videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boLOf2sMiEw)

September 18, 2010, 10:53 AM

Seriously both Spiderman and Wesker in one release is so amazing. Can't wait to play as Wesker so far he looks good and emotionless which is perfect. I hope they give him all the good lines from the game for him to say during combat :XD. "Time to die Chris!"

September 18, 2010, 11:46 AM
if wesker can do a move where he throws his glasses does a combo then catches his glasses n puts them on i be happy as hell.

now all need is Frank West..Venom..maybe bit of GAMBIT

September 18, 2010, 11:51 AM
Hyst, if that happens its just icing on the cake cause I'm already ecstatic about this :D. Gambit would be cool but he is on the old school side and hasn't been as relative lately. I think this game is really focusing on more relative characters instead of classics right now. Now some classic characters can still be relative to our time and thats why they hold a role in this game but it may not work for everyone. Mega Man is most likely going to be in but which one I am not sure. I'd assume the classic one but they could go anyway they want with it obviously.

September 18, 2010, 12:04 PM
Gambit is aweasome tho ..

with tron bonne (her move set looks worse than hulks) i assume get mega man

i want some one aweasome like Samonosuke from Onimusha perfect rival for Dante.

capcom not done any really new big series so cant think of any new characters they put in..

im guessing now got wesker n chris they prob throw jill in then complete the Resident Evil set

September 18, 2010, 12:08 PM
I would personally enjoy another resident evil character but I dunno how many would be too many ya know? I don't know what the limit would be for too many character from one game, especially since the overall roster is going to be smaller this time. Jill would be cool, Leon S Kennedy maybe :eyeroll. It would be pretty sweet to see them break away from one Resident Evil line and add from the other. Most likely they would do Jill though to even out the male female ration from resident evil i guess.

September 18, 2010, 12:12 PM
im think there gona be 3 for most teams as we can have 3 in a team

team resident: Chris, Wesker , Jill
Team street: Ryu,chun li, ken?
team DMC: True Dante, Trish, Vergil
team mega man: Tron bonne, Mega man , no idea 3rd dont know mega man that much

team Avengers: iron man, Thor, captain america
team Spidy: Spiderman, Venom, Carnage
team X-Men: Wolverine,X-23,Deadpool
all i can memba at moment

September 22, 2010, 05:17 PM
I know that a lot of people wants X to be in the game but I read somewhere that he isn't. I doubt Roll will be in the game since Tron is already in. The other Mega Man characters I can think of are: Classic MM, Protoman, Forte, Zero (most likely), and maybe Mega Man Volnutt.

Here are some screenshots (http://www.andriasang.com/e/galleries/2010/09/22/marvel_screens/2132426956/) and you can check out the 2P colors of some of the characters.

September 22, 2010, 05:20 PM
Nice! I have yet to see any alt colors yet but they look like they will be cool. I like how the Iron man alt is basically the other Iron Man suit :grin. Also the Wesker screen shots were pretty sweet as well. The ones with him next to Chris are pretty cool.

September 22, 2010, 05:36 PM
Here are more screenshots (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/09/22/here_is_your_official_marvel_vs._capcom_3_spider-man_and_wesker_art). Spider-Man's alt. color is interesting; I wonder what is the reference?

September 22, 2010, 06:00 PM
Deadpools alt is really interesting as well. Its such a unique color scheme, Orange and Blue. I can only Imagine what Wesker's alt will be...I can't imagine him in anything other than Black :s. I think the most shocking thing would be to make him all White. It would be pretty sweet to have him wear the exact opposite for once :).

September 22, 2010, 10:06 PM
Capcom stated that MvC3 will be out between Jan. 1 and March 31 (http://www.gametrailers.com/news/marvel-vs-capcom-3-out-in/2483) next year. That is so vague, Capcom. :oh

September 22, 2010, 10:15 PM
Sooooo they basically announced what we already knew. January 1 - March 32 translates to 2011 first quarter :darn.

September 23, 2010, 07:43 AM
Deadpools alt is really interesting as well. Its such a unique color scheme, Orange and Blue. I can only Imagine what Wesker's alt will be...I can't imagine him in anything other than Black :s. I think the most shocking thing would be to make him all White. It would be pretty sweet to have him wear the exact opposite for once :).

weskers outfit prob be purple...if you look at RES5 his coat aint black it purple ;).

what is spidys alt oufit dont see it on screen shots...

Deadpools is ment be a wovlerine ref
Dantes black coat is cool looks wierd tho.

alt hulk :barf:barf

September 23, 2010, 11:12 AM
I found this trailer with a bunch of alts being used in gameplay. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr4TIZ0bD3Q&feature=player_embedded#!) Maybe spiderman is somewhere in there, still looking for it. And yes, Hulks is messed up, just another reason why I'm not playing as myself in MvC3 :darn.

September 23, 2010, 02:31 PM
Opps, I meant Deadpool not Spider-Man. Sorry about that. :sweat

September 23, 2010, 04:30 PM
Opps, I meant Deadpool not Spider-Man. Sorry about that. :sweat
:notrust....I had an odd feeling that you might have meant that but then I said to myself that Riki couldn't have possibly made a mistake like that. PLUS other than the mask similarities how can you confuse the two!!!! :yelling :p

Gamespot has an interview (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/09/29/marvel_vs._capcom_3_interview:_seth_killian,_simple_mode,_and_more!?pg=2) with Seth Killian. He talked about the new characters, Simple Mode, and the character roster. He said that Capcom wants to keep the final number a surprise but they have revealed around 50% of the roster so far.

He talked about the new characters, Simple Mode, and the character roster. He said that Capcom wants to keep the final number a surprise but they have revealed around 50% of the roster so far.
So so far we have 22 characters and we are almost 50% there. So I'd expect the halfway mark to be 24 characters characters??? So we are looking at around or at least close to 50 characters for this game then if that is true???...... Sweet :hurr

October 09, 2010, 08:45 AM
Two new character trailers are up - Nathan "Rad" Spencer (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/nycc-10-marvel-vs/705871) and Sir Arthur (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/nycc-10-marvel-vs/705873)!

Capcom now has screenshots (http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2010/10/08/new_marvel_vs_capcom_3_characters).

Since two Capcom characters were revealed today, I'm assuming that two new Marvel characters will be announced tomorrow.

The Marvel liveblog (http://marvel.com/news/comicstories.14263.nycc_2010~colon~_marvel_vs~dot~_capcom_3_panel_liveblog) revealed Spider-Man's alternate costumes: Iron Spider, Symbiote Spidey, and a new costume from the "Big Time" comics from Dan Slott.

The blog also revealed more info about Simple Mode, which I will add to the first post. ^^ Niitsuma said that the game modes are still being developed but they will be revealed after more characters are announced.

According to Seth Killian, Dante has 40 super moves. :o
The storyline (http://kotaku.com/5659724/behold-the-storyline-for-marvel-vs-capcom-3) for the game has been revealed!

October 09, 2010, 08:52 AM
Wow Spencer is pretty interesting. Nice fighting style, grabbing and pulling people in as well as hurling them into the ground as he did in the finisher.

Sir Arthur on the other hand seems like he's the equivalent Mr. Game and Watch and the type of character he was for Super Smash Bros Brawl. In a sense that he's a bit awkward, moves awkwardly, and isn't too much fun to play as :XD.

October 09, 2010, 08:56 AM
Here are Spidey's alt. costumes (http://kotaku.com/5659541/spider+man-comes-in-four-flavors-in-mvc3).

Marvel is going to reveal their new characters soon. They will have a MvC3 conference again at 10:45 am EST. ^^

October 09, 2010, 09:00 AM
4 Alt costumes! :o

I only thought each character had one other. I guess I wasn't paying attention :darn. All the screens I've seen so far have only showed one alternate per character so.....

Yes, I figured the venom spider man costume would be inevitable. The other two are new to me but still cool looking :amuse.

October 09, 2010, 10:20 AM
My brother knew about the Iron Spider-Man costume but the last one is from a new issue.

Hmm... I wonder who will be the final boss in the storyline?
Marvel just revealed their two new characters - MODOK and Magneto! I'll post the character videos and screenshots as soon as they are up.

They also said that they will post the voice actors' info at the end of the year or early next year. I do know that Nolan North voiced Deadpool based on one of Capcom's staff's comment.

October 09, 2010, 11:04 AM
NICE!!! I was thinking about Magneto the other day actually while watching one of the X-Men movies. Thats gonna be awesome for this game. Probably would be my favorite Marvel Villain we've seen in this game so far. I think he might keep that title for the whole game IMO. Can't wait to see combat for him! :grin

October 09, 2010, 11:36 AM
D'oh! Capcom posted the character videos two days ago. :darn

Magneto gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCBU2B5dQeg)
MODOK (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9zqIPvK99c)

Amazon listed the game's release date to be April 19, 2011 (http://www.amazon.com/Marvel-vs-Capcom-Worlds-Playstation-3/dp/B003IEBO9Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1286641250&sr=8-1). Capcom has not confirmed it though.

October 09, 2010, 11:42 AM
40 super moves

real Dante is gona :pwned eeveryone

October 09, 2010, 11:43 AM
Magneto looks awesome :wtf. Definitely going to try using him.

MODOK on the other hand.....very awkward looking :sweat. The most awkward playing I've seen so far. No real flow to him, at least thats that impression I'm getting.

October 09, 2010, 11:48 AM
40 super moves

real Dante is gona :pwned eeveryone

My brother thinks it's because Dante is going to use all of his artillery especially Pandora's Box.

I really want to see his super moves now.

October 09, 2010, 12:16 PM
the moves mainly coz he has 4 playing styles..5 including his brothers dark slayer moves.

plus different weapons have different moves...

still Dante gona have broadest move set they gona have to nerf him so how

October 18, 2010, 09:11 PM
Maybe some of the attacks can be blocked?

I'm watching the USTREAM of the gameplay (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/unity-events#utm_campaigne=synclickback&source=http://capcom-unity.com/&medium=1810229) right now. Ammy looks like a glass cannon right now since she got defeated so easily but then the player might not use her correctly.

I made a screenshot of the victory screen but it's somewhat blurry.

Simple Mode (http://kotaku.com/5661915/the-argument-for-marvel-vs-capcom-3s-super+simple-controls) is explained. According to a Capcom worker, a player using Simple Mode can still play against another player who is using Normal Mode. However there is a catch with Simple Mode:

The Simple Mode is a reduced mode that removes many of the moves from a character's repertoire. For example, Killian said, Dante from Devil May Cry has 40 special moves in standard Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 and only four in simple mode. Dante has two supers in normal; one in simple mode.
MvC3 producer answered some fans' questions (http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog/2010/10/18/marvel_vs_capcom_3_producer_answers_community_questions).

Check out some fanmade wallpapers (http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog/2010/10/18/amazing_fan-made_marvel_vs_capcom_3_wallpapers) too.

October 19, 2010, 07:52 PM
i member when this was first announced and like a month later they did the artwork for real dante.

that was my wallpaper straight away..gona put that real dante one as my wallpaper


had to have it as desktop :p

November 13, 2010, 11:10 AM
Here is another MvC3 interview (http://30ninjas.com/blog/a-marvel-vs-capcom-3-interview-with-seth-killian-dlc-mission-mode-and-more).

I guess another game mode is Mission aka Story Mode.
Producer Niitsuma has posted an entry (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/10/25/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_developer_blog_-_nycc_and_more). According to him, the Japanese website's character pages (http://www.capcom.co.jp/mvsc3/character.html) will play their theme songs.
Amazon changed the release date to Feb. 15th (http://www.amazon.com/Marvel-vs-Capcom-Worlds-Xbox-360/dp/B003IE9V28/ref=br_nf_7_4?pf_rd_p=1272439522&pf_rd_s=center-11&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=468642&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=018E8R25G9QTT6SG4A9W).

She hulk appears (http://uk.ign.com/videos/2010/11/15/marvel-vs-capcom-3-she-hulk-trailer)

November 15, 2010, 08:27 PM
She hulk appears (http://uk.ign.com/videos/2010/11/15/marvel-vs-capcom-3-she-hulk-trailer)
WOW, I was not expecting that one at all. Very interesting character. Its awesome cause shes like the faster alternative to the Hulk. Also abnormally tall but I guess thats expected :s.

November 15, 2010, 09:20 PM
Zero has been announced (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/11/15/zero_and_she-hulk_announced_for_marvel_vs._capcom_3) as well. I should not be surprised - he is one of the most popular Mega Man characters.

November 16, 2010, 02:44 PM
forgot to post zero last night :D



February 15 confirmed date so most places midnight launch on Valentines day XD

I want this

November 16, 2010, 04:46 PM
Here is what is included with the special edition (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/11/15/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_new_characters,_release_date,_and_special_edition):

- Steelbook case featuring exclusive art work
- Comic/Art book- A 12-page prologue comic, written by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, plus campaign art and a curated selection of fan art.
- 1-month Subscription to Marvel Digital Comics, providing unlimited online access to Marvel content
- 2 Playable DLC Characters – Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine. Content is available 4 weeks post-launch.

Gamestop will also have an exclusive decal set, featuring Ryu, Wolverine, Deadpool and Dante, that isn’t part of the regular limited edition.

Guess who already preordered it. :p

November 16, 2010, 04:49 PM
forgot to post zero last night :D



That boxart sucks. :lmao

Besides that, this game is looking good so far, I will most definitely add it to my collection. Trying to get the special edition too, of course. :p

November 16, 2010, 05:06 PM

Jill as DLC :hurr

plus way more sexy boxart
Date Masamune from Basara 3 please appear in this game.

capcom own and make basara so it very likely who aslo very popular in japan maybe appear as DLC

November 16, 2010, 06:58 PM
I'm positive that Capcom will still introduce new characters. The next group will probably be out during Jump Festa. ^^

Anyway, boxart is... decent though I would thought the pairings on the cover would match up with the ones in the trailers (e.g. Wolverine against Ryu, Hulk vs Chris, etc.).

Here is the pic of the Gamestop exclusive (washable console decals by Fathead):

November 16, 2010, 07:04 PM
give me that Dante decal :hurr

i forgot about Jump Feista

i defo say now then 90% believe a Sengoku Basara character WILL appear then..i think the teaser for the SB movie will appear at Jump (capcom fund the anime and the film) they need something new and capcom have no new series apart from basara.

still no frank west..his shiloutte was on launch teasers strange..unless they switching to Chuck Green from dead rising 2.

December 09, 2010, 07:12 PM
Capcom revealed info (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/11/19/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_of_modes_and_license_cards) about game modes and license cards.
One of the developers has posted a blog entry (http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog/2010/11/24/marvel_vs_capcom_3_devblog:_the_home_stretch). According to him, She-Hulk was supposed to be introduced with Viewtiful Joe but they had trouble with her so they introduced Dormammu instead.
Famitsu interviewed (http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/11/30/niitsuma_on_mvc3/) Producer Niitsuma about the game. He provided interesting tidbits about the development, staff, characters (Ammy was the hardest to recreate from 2D to 3D), music, and online play.

According to him, there will be "30+ alpha" characters.
Capcom announced that MvC3 will have a stage event (http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/12/03/marvel_vs_capcom_jump_stage/) at Jump Festa. Some new characters are definitely going to be announced then.

The game will also be playable and Capcom will be handing out goodies, which include a Marvel vs Capcom 3 B3-sized poster (click on the link to see it).
Capcom stated that there won't be a demo (http://www.siliconera.com/2010/12/05/why-will-there-be-no-marvel-vs-capcom-3-demo/) due to several reasons.
In this interview (http://shoryuken.com/content/shoryuken-com-interviews-seth-killian-marvel-vs-capcom-3-specifics-2686/), Seth Killian talked about specific moves of certain characters. It's pretty informative. :amuse
Two new characters have been introduced - Storm and C. Viper (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2010/12/09/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_storm_and_c._viper_revealed)! Click here (http://www.siliconera.com/2010/12/09/storm-and-crimson-viper-electrocute-marvel-vs-capcom-3/) to see the newest trailers (and Spidey's symbiote costume).

I didn't expect C. Viper at all. :o

December 09, 2010, 07:37 PM
Storm I always kind of expected but C. Viper was definitely out of the blue for me, lol. The only thing about Storm is that I can easily get sick of her voice after a while :sweat. Overall I'm always happy to see more characters but these two aren't going to be some of my more favorite I guess.

December 09, 2010, 10:49 PM
I actually expected more SF4 characters to be in this one. I didn't even consider storm. No Venom?Sabertooth?Ken? I wanna see some more characters that I like to play with :tem

Other than those chracters, Zero is a must play for me. And of course Ryu :D I really need to get my PS3 -_-;

December 10, 2010, 11:03 AM
no point with ken if got ryu really.

i expected c.viper or juri they become quite popular SF4 characters.

Storm just gona be like ammartsu spamm but poor defence.

I WANTED GAMBIT FROM XMEN :yelling damn capcom

we did need more lady characters :hurr

December 10, 2010, 11:09 AM
Oh right... why no Gambit :o

No....Ken plays differently than Ryu. Although I rather Ryu, Ken is a lot of fun to play with also. Unless they're doing the same thing like the first one where Ryu can switch styles to Ken or Gouki.

Storm is just...me...not really interested in her.

I would like to see Guy though.

December 15, 2010, 09:13 PM
Here are some more Storm (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/daily-bugle-marvel-vs/708399) and C. Viper (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/the-hand-marvel-vs/708397) gameplay.
Supposedly someone has leaked the final roster (http://www.1up.com/news/final-marvel-capcom-3-roster). Take this with a grain of salt though.

According to the source, who went by the Twitter handle klennox22, the last set of character announcements will include Phoenix, Sentinel, and Taskmaster on the Marvel side, plus Hsien-Ko, Mike Haggar, and Akuma representing Capcom. Galactus is listed as the game's final boss.

One character that apparently won't be in the game, however, is Dead Rising's Frank West. "The creative deadline was in September. Frank was pulled about two months prior, and there was no time to add a new character in his place," read one of klennox22's numerous posts on the matter, continuing, "Shuma-Gorath was removed from the game to even the sides, and the decision was made to offer him as DLC."

December 16, 2010, 06:23 AM
might as well call if x-men vs street fighter 3...how many xmen does marvel need :fail

then again capcom slipped up.

good see the only good characters where announced first half of year

December 22, 2010, 11:11 PM
Well, we don't know if that roster is true or not so let's not be hasty.

Episode 3 Trailer (http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2010/12/16/marvel_vs._capcom_3_episode_3_trailer) is out.
Here is a recap (http://gamenyarth.blog67.fc2.com/blog-entry-8410.html) of the MvC3 event at Jump Festa. It's in Japanese though.

They also listed the seiyuu (http://www.capcom.co.jp/blog/mvsc3/) for the Capcom characters. I've posted most of them in the first post.
Marvel showed off some more alternative costumes (http://fans.marvel.com/marvel_interactive/blog/2010/12/21/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_the_thought_behind_the_marvel_alternate_color_schemes) for their characters.
The Achievements List (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/marvel-vs-capcom-3/achievements/) has been leaked.

December 24, 2010, 11:16 AM
Some of those Alternate costumes are pretty neat. Spiderman's costumes are all awesome :wtf Wolverine's black costume is epic!

January 08, 2011, 11:49 PM
You can now preorder the game at the official Capcom Store (http://shop.capcom.com/store/capcomus/en_US/pd/ThemeID.1944700/productID.222668700). The special edition is similar to GameStop's except you won't get console decals. Instead Capcom will give you a free T-shirt if you order the Standard Edition or the Special Edition from their store.

I'll let you know if they are planning another edition.
Capcom has posted a special holiday trailer (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/special-holiday-marvel-vs/708887). It features all of the characters revealed so far and we get to see some more alternate costumes.
Supposedly someone leaked the MvC3 comic books, which revealed Galactus (http://www.joystiq.com/2010/12/27/rumor-marvel-vs-capcom-3-comic-art-reveals-galactus-and-taskma/) and Taskmaster (http://shoryuken.com/content/marvel-vs-capcom-3-comic-book-art-reveal-taskmaster-galactus-2941/).
I guess that rumored roster is true since Capcom just announced Haggar and Phoenix (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jaycbaby/blog/2011/01/06/marvel_vs_capcom_3-_haggar_and_phoenix_revealed!) as new fighters.

Capcom also posted an interview (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jaycbaby/blog/2011/01/06/marvel_vs_capcom_3_promotional_artist_program-_shinkiro) with Shinkiro (the promotional artist for the game).

Destructiod has posted the characters' alternate costumes (http://www.destructoid.com/marvel-vs-capcom-3-extravaplosion--190882.phtml) and Joystiq has uploaded some gameplay (http://www.joystiq.com/2011/01/06/marvel-vs-capcom-3-preview/)
A game review/preview accidentally leaked a pic (http://shoryuken.com/content/pull-review-leaks-expected-marvel-vs-capcom-3-character-3052/) revealing Akuma.

January 09, 2011, 09:48 AM
I think it was obvious Akuma would be in this game....How could they leave him out?
The real character that's missing is Venom :oh

Oh well, they really are going all out with this sequel. Must get :hurr

January 09, 2011, 09:49 AM
Yeah, I figured that he is the Street Fighter villain Frank Tieri (the game's story writer) mentioned though some people are still surprised by it.

January 10, 2011, 01:25 PM

akuma was leaked

NowGamer.com posted an early review of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and in a screen shot it showed Akuma as one of the playable fighters. Here's the image.

A Google cached version of the review is still available.

Yes, riki already posted that. I think you misread what I meant :amuse

January 14, 2011, 02:33 PM
Capcom posted a TV ad (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpyEUdbLCd0).
Marvel posted more info about alternate costumes (Storm, She-Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-man, Wolverine, and Magento) in its blog (http://fans.marvel.com/marvel_interactive/blog/2010/12/21/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_the_thought_behind_the_marvel_alternate_color_schemes).
The Japanese website updated. Here is the Japanese version of the box art:


The site also showed a preview of the artbook and comic book:


In the blog (http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/01/14/marvel_vs_capcom_3_ecapcom/), Niitsuma announced that they will be announcing new characters next week and that this month will be full of new character announcements.
Capcom revealed their solution (http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2011/01/13/marvel-vs-capcom-3-will-pit-rage-quitters-against-rage-quitters/) to online "rage quitters". They would track down how many times a player quit a match early and if you do it regularly, the game will match you up with other "rage quitters".

January 14, 2011, 11:34 PM
Wow those look amazing! :drool Thanks for the heads up riki.

January 17, 2011, 12:02 PM
Akuma and Taskmaster just have been announced (http://kotaku.com/5735624/the-two-latest-marvel-vs-capcom-characters-take-you-to-task).

Yeah, I think the rumored list is officially legit.

January 17, 2011, 10:27 PM
So Taskmaster knows every character's moves? Or can he only use the same moves as the three characters he's fighting? It would pretty insane if he was like Shan Tsung from Mortal Kombat to switch to any character. But maybe that will be impossible with so many characters :XD

January 21, 2011, 10:35 PM
Marvel has another blog (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/114/1144674p1.html) about alternate costumes (Phoenix, Storm, MODOK, Captain America, and Dormammu).
1Up.com has posted a very informative character blog (http://www.1up.com/do/previewPage?cId=3183109).

January 22, 2011, 10:41 PM

OMG Gouki looks hard :blink

February 01, 2011, 08:08 PM
Hsein-ko and Sentinel are announced (http://www.siliconera.com/2011/01/27/hsien-ko-and-sentinel-rocket-punch-into-marvel-vs-capcom-3/). Click the links for their character videos.
Their gameplay (http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2011/01/28/marvel_vs_capcom_3_gameplay_videos_of_hsien-ko_and_sentinel) videos have been posted.
It's confirmed - Galactus will be the final boss (http://kotaku.com/5747816/witness-the-world+ending-final-boss-of-marvel-vs-capcom-3)!
Apparently, you can select Japanese or English voice for each character (http://www.siliconera.com/2011/01/31/rumor-marvel-vs-capcom-3-lets-you-select-english-or-japanese-voiceovers/).
Capcom just announced that there will be a MvC3 Tournament Edition Arcade Fightstick (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2011/02/01/limited_marvel_vs._capcom_3_tournament_edition_arcade_fightstick_announced). Unfortunately, there will be a limited quantity (5000).
The complete intro (http://www.joystiq.com/2011/02/01/marvel-vs-capcom-3s-complete-intro-captured/) has been leaked!

February 02, 2011, 09:29 AM

One of the best intros I've seen for a game,especially the ending. The only problem I had is that,the Capcom characters looked like they were losing...badly...
And lol @ Felicia :XD

February 11, 2011, 09:08 PM
Yeah, the scene with Haggar and Felicia is so random. :XD
Here are some screenshots (http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2011/02/02/new_screens_of_jill_and_shuma-gorath_revealed_for_marvel_vs._capcom_3) of Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath.

Capcom introduced a new mode: Shadow Mode (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2011/02/03/gamespot_reveals_marvel_vs._capcom_3s_shadow_mode), which is a DLC. In this mode, you set your AI team to play in the styles of Capcom developers and well-known players from the fighting game scene.

The first Shadow Mode pack will include teams and AI from three Capcom staff members, including producer Ryota Niitsuma, associate producer Akihito Kadowaki, and a QA tester. Additionally, the first pack is scheduled for release in March with more packs becoming available for download at a later date.
Here is a detailed explanation (http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2011/02/06/new_dlc_shadow_mode_revealed_for_marvel_vs_capcom_3_) about Shadow Mode.

Galactus (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2011/02/07/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_enter_galactus) has been confirmed to be the final boss. Man, he's going to be tough.

Before you face Galactus, you'll have to face his Heralds, two Silver Surfer-esque versions (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/114/1148135p1.html) of the game's villians (one Capcom and one Marvel), at the same time.
More details (http://fans.marvel.com/marvel_interactive/blog/2011/02/09/marvel_vs._capcom_3:_the_final_9_marvel_alternates) about the Marvel characters' alternate costumes (Deadpool, Hulk, X-23, Doctor Doom, Shuma-Gorath, Super-Skrull, Taskmaster, Thor, and Sentinel).

Here is the Japanese ad (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2011/02/10/japans_marvel_vs._capcom_3_television_ad) for the game.
Screw Attack has posted a lot of video clips (http://screwattack.com/shows/Marvel-vs-Capcom-3) (Level 3 Hyper Combos, Hulk Funny Sayings, Alternate Colors, and Smack Talkin' Teams).

I played this game last week

There was a roadshow of it...had a roster all way up to Storm announcement.

February 12, 2011, 07:47 PM
How do you like it so far?

February 12, 2011, 07:48 PM
solid game..takes the faults with SSF4 and improves alot..

Dante , Wolverine and Wesker where my team..
pretty hard to handle Wesker but he pulls of great damage.
Wolverine same as always.
Dante hard but broad moveset is nerfed by damage he gives

February 12, 2011, 11:26 PM
Gotcha. Hopefully Gamestop will ship the game soon. ^^

She-Hulk's ending (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7k-1H_-i9I) is great.

Seeing Phoenix Wright and Edgeworth hugged each other in fear is hilarious

Check out this site (http://wiki.shoryuken.com/Marvel_vs_Capcom_3), which has a comprehensive video guide about all of the characters.

February 15, 2011, 05:57 PM
Ouch! I don't think I would bother to get it.

My game was shipped last night so I'm expecting it to arrive by tomorrow. ^^\

The fightstick (http://www.gamepro.com/video/news/152823/marvel-vs-capcom-3-arcade-fightstick-tournament-edition/) looks nice!

Here is a clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWye50CwpWo) of the final roster

Apparently someone hacked the game and found the characters for the 2nd DLC of MVC3.


Frank west with zombies, dr octopus

February 16, 2011, 01:32 PM
Hmmm... That's interesting. Dr.Oct and Frank :wtf

February 17, 2011, 06:37 AM
Doesn't surprise me that they're on the disc already. Typical Capcom money spinning. And the game is out on Friday over in the U.K.

What system did you order it for Hystzen?

And to anybody who's played it, is it as terribly unbalanced as MvC2?

February 17, 2011, 08:32 AM
Mine is coming here today.

mum picking it up from work :tem

ps3 like always....:3c

February 17, 2011, 03:28 PM
Damn... mine arrived today too. After looking at the command list in the booklet the controls look extremely simplistic... Too simplistic...

Some people online pointed out that there could have been leftover codes after they removed West from the game (Capcom did mention that once they got rid of West, they also had to get rid of a Marvel character to make the roster even). However, I hope they will bring those characters back as DLC. If they already have the codes and data for those characters, it would be easy to add them into the roster.

The command list seems easy but the game is very entertaining. My brother enjoys playing the game so far though he likes to spam one of Dante's moves (don't know the name but Dante would launch missiles).

February 17, 2011, 05:22 PM
My main concern with the simplicity of the controls is that it just wont feel satisfying when I'm using my fightstick. From what I read it looks like you can pull of a special simply by inputting the stick motion and then pressing anyone of the buttons used to attack.

February 17, 2011, 05:33 PM
Isn't that how it always was when playing on auto mode and not manual? In the original there was a choice to play it like that so it would be easier for less skilled people.

I'm really excited for this game,but if it's anything like MvC2, I don't think I'll enjoy it as much. One thing that made me dislike MvC2 was the controls and the fact that you're using 3 people.Two people was a lot more challenging imo.

February 17, 2011, 05:41 PM
Don't get me wrong I loved MvC2, it's just the simplicity worries me a little bit. Although I guess that in the long run it's a positive thing as it allows more people onto the fighting game scene.

February 18, 2011, 02:21 PM
is it me or it is Amaterasu overpowered...if i do a basic attack combo then launch in air hit 2 times then do elemental hyper combo they pretty much dead..it wipes out whole life bars

March 08, 2011, 04:42 PM
Character trailers (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2011/03/08/jill_valentine_and_shuma_gorath_trailers_revealed) for Jill and Shuma Gorath are up

April 11, 2011, 02:09 PM
Finally got to play this awesome game! It's truly a fantastic game...I had a little difficulty getting the hang of the controls,but I learned it after a few battles :tem I've been playing the original MvC recently and don't really like the control set up,but it makes sense the way it is. That's the only problem the game has imo...oh and the overpowered Amaterasu -_-;
X-23 is definitely my favourite character so far :D

The rumored announcement that Niitsuma is announceing at Comic-Con is Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 (http://thequarterbin.com/2011/07/15/ultimate-marvel-vs-capcom-3-mvc3-to-get-12-new-characters-in-budget-re-release/), which is a supposedly a budget re-release. The character roster goes up from 38 (including the DLC characters) to 50.

Let's see if the rumor is true. ^^

July 19, 2011, 10:32 PM
I hope this is true.... I want Venom goddamnit! :yell

Btw, is it true that MvC3 is coming to the PC? They released Super Street Fighter 4 for PC and I heard they were releasing MvC3 later this year... I hope they do. Capcom will be making the right choice if they do :D

July 20, 2011, 02:06 PM
I've read that rumor as well. I guess we'll find out soon. ^^
