Roundup: Poongko EVO attendance, Sanwa clear pushbuttons

Roundup: Poongko EVO attendance, Sanwa clear pushbuttons

• Poongko just announced on his twitter that he will be making an appearance at EVO 2011 with his incredible Seth. Be sure to keep your eyes on the EVO stream, upcoming in a little under two weeks!

• Sanwa has just begun production of clear pushbuttons for the first time. Initially, only Seimitsu has made clear pushbuttons, and Seimitsu also only specializes in screw-in pushbuttons. However, Sanwa snap-in buttons now have the choice of a transparent color choice. Good for stick builders. Tip from d3v.

• In response to the previous Demon Armageddon setup video for Akuma, CLxJames decided to make his own version of the video by shortening the Ultra animations, making the explanations clearer, and making the setups more practical. Tip from CLxJames himself and Beauphos.

• Reaperdidit sent in a digital mix tape for Chun Li called Lightning Kicks: A Tribute to Chun-Li where he remixes some alternative hip-hop with Chun-Li's voice acting. The Chinese Kempo track is the best one in my opinion.

Rumor: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works

Rumor: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works Multiple readers wrote in today about a rumor that surfaced claiming that an update to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is in the works, adding the Ultimate prefix. Details are pretty scare, and there's no source named for the rumors, but this news has had people buzzing so far. Here's a clip from the site that posted the rumor.

The title will be a re-release similar to Super Street Fighter IV, which many fighting game fans will remember was budget priced at $39.99, and came with heaping handful of new characters exclusive to that version. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will see a similar release later this year, and with the character count jumping from 38 (including DLC fighters Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath) to 50, there are at least a dozen reasons to be excited.

While our sources have been mum on the new characters expected to make an appearance, the inclusion of Frank West and Doctor Octopus files hidden on the original Marvel vs. Capcom 3 game disc should mean the appearance of those two characters is almost a given. We’ll let the speculation run wild as to the other ten characters, but we’d love to see the debut of the oft-rumored Phoenix Wright (as a fully playable character) and return of Mega Man, as well as the father/son tandem of Cable and Cyclops.

These are details that most active community members could have guessed at — or made up — so take this as you will. It has been confirmed that there are more plans for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that will be revealed at Comic-Con, so in just under a week's time we'll know a lot more. Until then, expect lots of speculation.
