Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Multiple changes for Iron Man, Vita release is speculation

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Multiple changes for Iron Man, Vita release is speculation Offering up a few more details for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Seth Killian and Christian Svensson put in some time recently on the Unity Boards. Seth talks about how Iron Man received multiple changes and that he has more tools and Svensson covers topics like DLC and YouTube video sharing.

There's also a bit on SSF4 AE v2012 and DarkStalkers thrown in for good measure. Hit the link below to read everything.

Can you confirm Iron Man will have a new move in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3? — Vuru

Seth Killian: We're letting people play and discover for themselves, but not giving out more details than were shared at the panel directly.

I will say that Iron Man has undergone a number of changes that, to me, make him feel quite different. Some will love the new Iron Man, some may want the old one back, but in my opinion right now his overall arsenal is more effective rather than making him play like a poor-man's Magneto with a better assist.

Why won't UMvC3 have YouTube sharing? — Chaosx2

Svensson: The team focused on maximizing content for UMvC3 that benefits all buyers. If you'd like a few less characters we could have probably worked something out but let's not make out like YouTube uploads are a "standard feature" by any means and more content is more "bang" for the buck.

And such an implementation is definitely non-trivial. It took a long time to work it out on SF3:OE.

And no, you can't just pick up what we did in SF3:OE and plug it into MvC3 and have it work. It doesn't work that way.

Sven elaborates on tourney options for Street Fighter 3 OE, 600MB install

Sven elaborates on tourney options for Street Fighter 3 OE, 600MB install Capcom's Christian Svensson offered a few more details on how the tournament mode in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition will work recently on the Unity Boards, saying that it'll be customizable based on the rule sets you select. He briefly talks about some other details about the game as well.

There's also a quick comment about Tatsunoko.

What kinds of tournament modes are there in SF3 OE? — Joseph

Svensson: There are different tourney rulesets (for example, one is "Evo rules") but they're all 8 man, single elimination.

The rulesets revolve around are there characters that are banned? Are there double blind selects? How many rounds? Etc.

What's the file size for this game? — Shinkuu Kikoken

Svensson: Somewhere around 600 megabytes.

Does SF3 OE use Sony DRM? — SmashManiac

Svensson: As Derek and I covered in the 3rd Strike panel at Evo, the game does not make use of Sony's network DRM. It is playable offline. We deemed that very important for future tournament use.

Will the PSN version have custom sound track selection? — The Chosen One

Svensson: This was answered earlier in the thread. No, it won't support custom sound tracks.

Is there anyway 3s parry system could be implemented in any future Street Fighter games? — Temitayo

Svensson: No plans to do so. It's a distinct 3s thing.

With SF3 OE come to the iPhone? — Magnetowned

Svensson: I'll never say never but it's not in the works right now. Updates to Street Fighter IV Volt are what our mobile teams in Japan are working on.

What's happening with the Tatsunoko characters? Does Capcom still have their licenses? If so, will there be a Tatsunoko vs. Capcom 2? Will it get a 360/PS3 release this time around? — Yassar

Svensson: Nothing I can say on this topic at the moment. Sorry. :)
