Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 about 80% complete, original release DLC plans were cut

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 about 80% complete, original release DLC plans were cut AndriaSang put up a couple of articles talking about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 this morning, from Famitsu magazine.

The publication states that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is about 80% complete at the moment and that staff health issues and the earthquake in Japan were factors on why the original title didn't see more downloadable content. They also briefly talk about selection criteria for the new combatants.

So how did Capcom go about selecting the fighters? For the Marvel side, the selection was made based off the opinion of Marvel. To make up for this, characters from the Capcom side were selected based off fan and staff desire.

There are a number of other changes on the way aside from the new characters. As detailed last week, the game's online play is getting a much requested viewing mode. The staff is also reducing lag and speeding up matching.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has unlimited hyper meter mode as DLC

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has unlimited hyper meter mode as DLC SiliconEra translated a piece by Famistu magazine which talks about some of the extras Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will offer people via DLC.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 won’t be out until November, but Capcom is already cracking on downloadable content plans. Players will be able to purchase arrange costumes and new modes from PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live Marketplace.

According to Famitsu, one new mode players will be able to add is unlimited hyper combo mode. Pricing for this mode has not been announced.

This unlimited hyper gauge option sounds similar to the Event Modes that were unlocked in MvC3 every Tuesday that pitted you against various CPU opponents that had unique abilities.

Ibuki Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition guide updated

Ibuki Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition guide updated The guide for Ibuki in Arcade Edition was recently completed by myself here on Eventhubs.

Ibuki has quite a few special and normal moves, which offers a lot of flexibility to her offense. She has good chip options, great mid range pokes, and a very strong knockdown and anti-air game. In other words, she's very tournament viable. You don't need to be too daunted by her large library of moves, as most are very specifically applied as you fight.

Ibuki has a very specific range in which all of her pokes are very effective. That range is where her far standing Light Punch will be blocked by the opponent. From there, Ibuki can perform all her overheads and mid-range target combos with ease. It's also the best range for her to jump so she can land a crossup (or fake crossup).

Once you knock the opponent down, it's all about the Kunai toss. The Light Kunai is the one you will be relying exclusively on as you cross up for an attack. The opponent will have to watch Ibuki carefully to see which way to block, which is not easy. If the opponent tries to Focus->Backdash out of the Kunai, try to chase them down with your Slide.

It's important as well not to get knocked down with Ibuki. Her low stamina and stun coupled with bad reversal game will always be a factor in a match, so it's best not to try too many gambles against characters with strong knockdown games.

Another big list of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 changes

Another big list of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 changes We've ran quite a number of stories on change lists in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but Dahbomb on NeoGAF has put together the biggest list of changes I've seen so far for the game. It covers most of the cast and has a really nice breakdown of the balance tweaks Capcom has done.

Here's a snip.

Trish
+ Recovery on air and ground Hopscotches reduced
+ Recovery on air and ground Peakaboo reduced
+ Peakaboo assist comes out faster
+ Low Voltage projectiles have faster start ups

While Trish was considered by many to be a very strong character in MVC3, she was not very popular in tournaments due to dominance of rushdown style of play. With general nerfs to many rushdown characters and style of play, zoning seems to be stronger in UMVC3 And with that Trish appears to be an extremely powerful character in the new meta-game. With buffs to her specials, she should be very close to a dominant character in the game. Expect her to move up a few spots.

Tron Bonne
- Tron Gustaff Fire assist has been nerfed, a bigger hittable box
- Tron's j.H knocks away making it difficult to hit confirm into a combo
+ Trons Bonne Strike has quicker recovery
+ Servebot projectiles come out faster (?)

Some of the most questionable changes in the game regarding nerfs were made to Tron. Already in the Middle tier as far as point ability was concerned, Tron was competitive mostly due to her godly assist. Now it's nerfed and punishable, causing Tron to drop in usability. Much like Haggar, there are no substantial buffs to her point game meaning she has essentially dropped a tier at least. Much like Haggar, most people are a bit disappointed by this unless more info pops up about her point game.
