Mike "Olaf" Spragg discusses changes to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Mike "Olaf" Spragg discusses changes to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Mike "Olaf" Spragg from the Cross Counter website posted a blog discussing the changes to the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 cast and design choices. This is a pretty interesting read about a bunch of controversial changes.

Here is a little to get you started, check out the full post here.

Jill

People have commented on their concerns here, but I'll reiterate some of it. Jill was a DLC character. Jill was hard to use. People realized the top 5 characters of the game were really good long before people thought Jill was playable. Hell, some characters were found to be good before Jill came out. The game was in the hands of the public for less than a year. Capcom found stuff that was good, the public, less so. So, because Capcom found it, they nerfed her slightly before we had a chance to make her good. Way to encourage people to buy and play your character.
Hell, a smarter move might have been to buff her slightly, and then when people found your supposed broken tech, patch it out or something. Or hell, DON'T! Reward people for learning to play a tough to use character!

Regardless:
- All attacks float a little higher - This means that some of her jump loops will hit the opponent too high to continue comboing. That sucks.

- Slightly reduced hit box sizes of all jumping attacks - Hah! this nerf actually stacks with the above nerf, removing a lot of jump comboability. Good thing she has all those jump cancels! Oh...wait....crap.

- Slightly decreased forward moving range of cr.M - Melee only character, nerfing her slide distance. Well, I could talk about this now, or you can wait until I get to She-Hulk to see the full fury of this design decision. At least with Jill it's less painful, since she has a lot of other options, and her slide wasn't ridiculous, but it may make some low hit confirms harder.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 PlayStation Vita release

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 PlayStation Vita release Earlier this month Capcom announced the release date for the Japanese version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the PlayStation Vita.

Sony announced through their blog that the PlayStation Vita will be released February 22, 2012 for Europe, North America, and Australia.

With the release of the PlayStation Vita, Capcom will be releasing Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on February 22, 2012 at North American retailers.

Here is some details about the price that was done when the the Japanese version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 date and price were announced.

The PlayStation Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will cost 4,800 yen in retail form, or a downloadable option that's a bit cheaper, priced at 4,300 yen will also be available.

You could covert yen to USD to get an idea of the price tag, but because the Japanese currency is currently stronger than the America dollar, it's not an apples to apples comparison. Instead, it's easier to compare the retail versions of UMvC3 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which are both priced at 4,990 yen on Amazon Japan's website, these titles will retail in the United States for $39.99 USD.

The PS Vita version of UMvC3 will be a bit cheaper at retail than their home console counterparts, and the downloadable version will be a solid mark down, around 13% off the home console releases.

If this math holds up, when these products are released state side, they should be about $34.99 for the downloadable version and $38.99 for the retail release on the PS Vita.

Desk's three glitch combo video for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Desk is back with a crazy new glitch in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. He specifically mentioned Tekknight007+ThouArtTheMachine for helping with this.

This clip combines 3 glitches, Peekaboo glitch, Trish assist glitch and a weird combo counter glitch. I'm currently getting footage for a 'life time of MvC3' glitch video and it looks like I won't have time to use this clip.

Capcom making plans for Street Fighter's 25th anniversary

Capcom making plans for Street Fighter's 25th anniversary Street Fighter and Mega Man's 25th anniversary will be happening next year, and Capcom is in the planning stages for both things. Christian Svensson also talked a bit about UMvC3's character selection and nerfs, licensing SF stuff for merchandise and if Capcom Japan see what's posted on the Unity Boards.

Here's a run down.

2012 marks a milestone -- the 25th anniversary of Mega Man. Any plans? — Jimb0

Svensson: 25th for Mega Man and 25th for Street Fighter next year. Both will have "things" to commemorate the occasion. Exactly what is is in planning stages but the are solid ideas already being batted around I hope you guys will like. But please bear in mind, they won't happen until some time in our next fiscal year begins mostly (so still a good ways away).

Was the Invisible Woman on the Marvel block list for UMvC3? — Buffy

Svensson: I don't believe so but as others have posted, Super-Skrull sort of takes care of the Fantastic Four even if not every power is represented. She wasn't requested by the team or Marvel. Personally, on her own I'd find her a little powers a bit underwhelming if she were in (but that's just me).

Will you consider removing some of the character nerfs to UMvC3? Some characters there aren't viable anymore. — Ray

Svensson: Ray, any [pre] launch balance discussions are extremely pre-mature.

I am starting a small t-shirt company, with my own original designs. In the future, I would love to do Street Fighter or Mega Man related designs, is that feasible? — Galactuseatworld

Svensson: If it's a commercial venture, and it makes use of our IP, you would unfortunately need to have an official license from us.

How is the information on the Unity Boards used? Is it translated and showed to Japanese developers or do you just have meetings with them? — Dan

Svensson: Both.

What would you like to see Capcom do for Street Fighter's 25th anniversary? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
