A Guard Crush system similar to the one in Street Fighter Alpha 3 was among the ideas that Capcom looked into when developing Ultra Street Fighter 4, Capcom Japan's Tomoaki Ayano and Koichi Sugiyama told Weekly Famitsu magazine in the second part of their interview published in the latest issue this week.

The idea was ultimately scrapped, however -- but it's something that Sugiyama says they would reconsider if they were to ever rebalance the game again.

Galactus can vanish from screen, avoid nearly all damage, and run out the clock in UMvC3 - Nova's Energy Javelin one of the only solutions

A couple of months ago, a trick was discovered that allows player to use three of the same character on one team in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This "save hack" trick also enables players to use Galactus, the game's final boss, in actual matches and even use two of him at once.

We were recently sent a video that shows an online bout where one player uses Galactus in-game. As seen in the video, there is a way to make it so that the UMvC3 boss vanishes from sight, make him impervious to nearly all damage.

According to Flying High, the person who uploaded the video, the only way to way to hit Galactus at this point is with a homing projectile attack, like Nova's Energy Javelin. Players using this trick can deal a small bit of chip damage to their opponent, disappear, and lame out a victory by running out the clock.

Check out the footage below.
