Seth chats about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 at PAX

Seth chats about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 at PAX Seth Killian spoke with The Noble Eskimo at PAX to talk about some of the down and dirty details concerning Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This is written by someone who knows the ins and outs of MvC3, not your typical gaming publication, so the questions are more of the flavor this community is interested in. There's also an audio version of this piece where there are extra notes that weren't transcribed, here's a bit to get you going.

TNE: So how about [Ryu's] rapid hadokens? I hear he has rapid hadokens in this one.

S-kill: Yes, so, he's got two new hadokens... well he's got the new Shinku Hadoken which [happens] in his powered-up mode. If you throw a fireball with Special, it's one little anemic fireball that doesn't look that great, but if you hold down the special button [for a moment], it powers up to a hypersonic fireball that you don't even see, but if it hits, it'll explode on you and you bounce off the wall and can combo after that. If you throw the anemic fireball and just mash special, you'll get a stream of anemic fireballs.

TNE: So would you say Ryu is going to be more of a contender in this one than the last one?

S-kill: For sure. He's got a new special too, a new Shoryuken. If you do a Special Shoryuken, it gives him a powered-up, special Shoryuken which launches and throws up a little almost projectile-thing like Dr. Doom's.

Devs want Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to be more about strategy, less about execution

Devs want Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to be more about strategy, less about execution Capcom's, marketing coordinator, Ryan McDougall, spoke with about some of the things the development team is hoping to do with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Mixed in with a lot of recapped details are some interesting nuggets about the overall direction of the game and what abilities the developers are aiming to give the various characters. Here are some of the highlights.

• Capcom said they want to make UMvC3 less about precise execution and more about strategies and tactics.

• Dr. Strange is likely the most extreme example of Capcom trying to make the game more zone friendly and focus more on projectiles.

• Strider and Dr. Strange are called 'glass cannons', meaning they're great offensive characters, but can't take a lot of damage before dying off.

• Magneto was made slower, to make him less of an in-your-face character who's constantly rushing down. In the comics Magneto attacks with his powers instead of punching people in the face and changes were made to bring him more in line with this.

• Nemesis has more health than any character in the game, but of course lacks mobility as shown in several videos.

• Ghost Rider is compared to Dhalsim of Street Fighter fame, Ryan mentions he plays a little bit like him, saying that he can control a lot of space with his normal attacks.

• He said that one of Ghost Rider's jumping chain attack, possibly the Hard Attack one, is the most powerful jumping attack outside of Wolverine's Dive Kick.

Do you think this is the right direction for the franchise, being less about execution and having more strategy implemented? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

Footage from Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 location test

Some videos from the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 location test have been posted. This is a good way to see some of the balance changes in action. At the start of the clip in the lower right-hand corner, you'll see this iteration of the game is listed as Ver.2012 Alpha.

As the changes in v2012, for the most part, aren't hit you over the head obvious, this is going to look a lot like the current build of AE, but if you pay close attention, you'll see some of the stuff that has been modified. For those of you curious how the twins look now, hit the 10 minute 20 second mark, as there's a match between Yang and Yun there.

Hit the jump for another video.
