Seth shares P. Wright, Frank West Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 info, Nemesis origins

Seth shares P. Wright, Frank West Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 info, Nemesis origins A few new details concerning Phoenix Wright and Frank West in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 were posted by Seth Killian on Twitter today. Here's a run down.

Seth Killian: Turnabout Phoenix Wright has best assist ever, best normal, best Level 3. One week til beast is unleashed...

Frank West gets very scary at higher levels, and there are some dirty tricks for leveling him up VERY fast with the right teammates.

It's all about PRESSING DAT WITNESS. Well, in Turnabout anyway. Otherwise I <3 Missile.

Also, for those of you who have no clue about Nemesis, Capcom-Unity put up another story which details his background information and has a few videos as well, to get you more up to speed with this fighter. Here's a snip.

That’s your first introduction to the hulking, unyielding mass that is Nemesis. Ever since his first imposing steps in Resident Evil 3, this towering foe has become one of the most beloved (or is it feared?) villains in all of gaming – IGN placed him in its “Top 100 Videogame Villains” feature, among other awards from around the webternets. All these accolades mean Nemesis is a hardened fighter and thus a perfect fit for Ultimate MvC3, and today we’re gonna brush up on his bloody history…

Without diving too deep into the dense, untamed brush of the Resident Evil canon, Nemesis is essentially a Tyrant (the final boss of the first RE) that has been infected with a deadly parasite. Typically, said parasite kills the host within minutes, but in this case, when combined with a Tyrant, the Nemesis T-Type was produced. Soon after his creation, he gained the added descriptor, “The Pursuer.”

Street Fighter X Tekken: Ono confirms that updates to the game will be DLC only

Street Fighter X Tekken: Ono confirms that updates to the game will be DLC only In an excellent confirmation with Gematsu, Yoshinori Ono said that should they update Street Fighter X Tekken, it will be done in the style of Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition.

This is big news and a true shift of policy when it comes to updating fighting games with either characters, balance patches or other online distributions. Check out a cut of the interview below, and check the rest on their website.

Q: What do you have to say to consumers who aren’t purchasing Street Fighter X Tekken in March because they’re waiting for a ‘Super Street Fighter X Tekken‘?

Ono: If we decide to create a new version of the game, we will go with the Street Fighter IV series route, by providing online update patches for the game. So I would say that you don’t really need to worry about a new version of the game coming out. If we choose to update the game, it will be done in the same fashion as Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition [laugh].

Q: What are your goals in designing a fighting game now, after Street Fighter IV blew up? Do you design a fighter now looking at it from a competitive/tournament perspective, or for a more casual at-home type of game? (And do you aim to make them ‘e-sports friendly’?)

Ono: I always want everything, so I try to design for both competitive and casual players [laugh]. I compare tournaments to piano recitals in a way; they are places where you are judged on the skills you have learned up until that time. I’d like to keep creating these kinds of tools for competition through my game design.

But on the other hand, I’d like to get as many players as possible to try out my games. Even in my own house, the only time a fighting game disc is read by the console is when I’m sitting in front of it. No one else in my family will even touch those discs. I bet there are a lot of families out there like this [laugh]. So I’d like to create fighting games that can be enjoyed by a lot of people through my game design as well.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Marvel does care about character requests from fans

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Marvel does care about character requests from fans In a straight up response to a question on Capcom Unity, Christian Svensson (Senior VP at Capcom USA) confirmed that Marvel does listen to fan requests regarding characters.

This question likely came forth as a response to the assertions that Marvel largely controls which of its own characters are chosen for Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Satou: About our Marvel character requests? It would save Capcom and Marvel a lot of explaining. We know Capcom cares, but does Marvel?

You entered into a contract with them and you work with them 24/7, so let us the fans know. [Should we] waste our time asking for Marvel characters?

Svensson: Marvel does care. I know they took some of their fan requests into consideration. Bear in mind, their fans would very likely have different requests of Marvel characters than our fans.

It seems that there might be a divide between what fighting game fans of Marvel are asking for compared to their comic fans.

Given that the possibility of DLC characters is high for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, what characters would you request of Marvel?

Vita Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 supports touch screen attack, Frank West origins

Vita Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 supports touch screen attack, Frank West origins In a brief report by SiliconEra, they noted that the PlayStation Vita release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will support attacking by tapping the screen. No other details were offered on how the touch sceen(s) would be implemented, though.

Also, over on Capcom-Unity, there's a short article covering the origins of Frank West. If you're not familiar with this character and want a quick sketch on what he's all about, look this over. Here's a snip.

To give a little background, West is a freelance photojournalist who cut his teeth covering wars. Always cool under pressure, he sees the zombirific events of Dead Rising as an opportunity to boost his career. Insensitive? Perhaps. Still, he rescues the occasional survivor when he can spare the time, so you can’t help but love the guy a little bit. Also he looks great in a banana hammock.

He was even named the Third Manliest Man in Gaming by ScrewAttack.

Dead Rising 2 saw a new, more serious protagonist in motocross champ Chuck Greene, but Frank was back for more fun in DR2’s expansion episode, Case West, which had Frank working together with Chuck. You could even play the episode in co-op, with both Chuck and Frank as playable characters.
