All but official, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • April 17, 2010 at 6:35 a.m. PDT
All but official, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works Confirming the rumors posted the other day, PlanetXbox360 reported that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was shown at Capcom's Captivate event in Hawaii.

There's an embargo on the details, so you won't be seeing screen shots, movies and other things until early next week, but here's the notes they were able to get together.

• Confirmed characters so far are Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Magneto, Storm and a few others will return.

• The Marvel vs. Capcom 3 development team said they will be blowing fans out of the water with the sheer number of characters this game includes on the disc.

• This will be another 2D fighter — gameplay-wise — but will be something of a cross between the original Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Street Fighter 4.

• The rumored release date is late 2010 or early 2011 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, no plans right now for other systems.

• The game will run in 1080p resolution.

• It will be a disc-based release.

• Apparently the game will have unlockables again.

• Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be playable at this year's E3 which is held on June 15 - 17th.

It's mahhhhvel baby!

I'm pretty sure everyone knew it was this though... those guys that leaked the ssf4 info said it was this game and they havent been wrong yet.

Btw where do they post their leaks? I usually hear about them 3rd hand.

Interesting.
I guess this is going to revitalize the Marvel scene.
To be honest however, I would have preferred seeing CvS3. :P

ive been dreaming of this for sooooo long for almost 10 years.

i was too young to master MvC2 when it first came out, but now that I am really good at fighting games, i cant WAIT to play as my favorite MARVEL SUPER HEROES AND CAPCOM FIGHTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CervejaDoBrazil said on April 17, 2010 at 7:29 a.m.

This is music to my ears. No wonder they wanted to re-release MvC2. see if there was enough backing to make a sequel. and with the game being one of the top downloads on BOTH consoles how could they NOT come to this decision?

#29
Creeper said on April 17, 2010 at 7:46 a.m.

I never could get into the Mahvel scene, the metagame was too developed for me to bother. I think a fresh start for the series is just what I need to hop on board. I'm what you'd call an "09er" in the Street Fighter community simply because of how little exposure I've had to it over the years (only one arcade near me, which closed several years ago), and I'm glad online gaming is helping to make playing easier for another series.

That doesn't mean dilute the chaotic and energetic gameplay to appeal to "casuals" though, Capcom.

ScytheWP said on April 17, 2010 at 7:53 a.m.

Screw balance, MVC3!

#33
Adjacent said on April 17, 2010 at 7:58 a.m.

Any marvel character who has had or will have a movie in the past few years is pretty much guaranteed to be in it. So I expect the entire Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Thor, Ghost rider, Daredevil but no Elektra. No one gives a crap about her.

#43
ScytheWP said on April 17, 2010 at 8:35 a.m.

@ 44

This actually seems more likely that it came from the overwhelming demand, and success of MVC2's digital download.

#44
enigmus said on April 17, 2010 at 8:36 a.m.

the glaring question i wanna know is how they procured the Marvel characters when most of them are licensed by other video game companies well into next 3 years if i'm told correctly. anyone have any thoughts?

#48
ScytheWP said on April 17, 2010 at 8:46 a.m.

@ 46

Look at Tatsunoko vs Capcom. They lost 1 character due to licensing. Since Marvel has broken into so many branches, we may lose like...20 original characters from MVC2.

#49
MAXOUT12 said on April 17, 2010 at 8:57 a.m.

hmm very interesting but since both capcom and marvels univeres have expanded it should be a great game. But i hope both companies start taking this time to also make games on the non popular cast.

#50

Would have preferred CvS3 - but at least it's something!

Wardog said on April 17, 2010 at 9:04 a.m.

I hope they will fix alot of problems in this game.. because MVC2 had alot of problems like infinite, assist spamming, etc.

supermaster said on April 17, 2010 at 9:14 a.m.

finallyyyyyyyyyyyyyy it takes 10 years to make this game lol. well they should have every character from mvc2 back but they might not because of lisencing but they should they dont understand how big this game is and how much money this would make them it will make more than sf4, anyway they when they add the marvel side add everyone u can think of because marvel side is limitless characters, in capcom add dante virgil nero(devil may cry) protoman zero megaman x gutman(megaman) falcon gunrock wangtang royma rouge ayane(powerstone) add every sreet fighter chacter made from sf2 sf3 and sf4 add rivel school characters, some from dark stalkers, add giant size characters like in tvc.leon chris crowser wisker or what ever hhis name is(resident evil) and BROLY AS MAIN BOSS LOL just kidding about that, but think out the box capcom side

One thing that is great about the vs. series for Capcom's PR is that they can drag out the drama of character reveals for a REALLY long time.

#61
Super_Shoto_Fighter_4 said on April 17, 2010 at 9:30 a.m.

@34

That's the Marvel spirit!

I hope the still allow characters to fly and Hyper Combo when they take turns to dish out supers one after another. I also hope that the game retains the same speed as MvsC2 or faster. I don't want another slow fighter from Capcom.

I looking forward to this more than SSF4.

No more turtling or run away tactics. Hope Rogue is still in the game with the power steal move.

Can't Wait. ^^

halo said on April 17, 2010 at 9:45 a.m.

No surprise whatsoever and i am thrilled! I also would have preferred a new CvS game but let's be realistic, Capcom's aim is to bring out the biggest cash cows and given the big sales of MvsC 2 and the general popularity of Marvel characters as well as the accessibility of the game's play mechanics...well it made lots more sense. Hopefully if interest remains strong we will eventually get a Capcom vs SNK 3 although Ono is really, really keen on making a new Darkstalkers. Either way us fighting game fans win!

#67
Douchebag said on April 17, 2010 at 9:52 a.m.

Excellent...MvC3 is all but confirmed. Wonder just how many characters the development team is planning to incorporate?

On that note of a possible CvS3, it's unlikely that is gonna happen. Apparently, the SNK characters in CvS2 were crap compared to the stupid priorities of Capcom characters such as Sagat and Blanka. Of course, SNK got all butthurt that their characters were weaker than their Capcom counterparts, so unless Capcom agrees to have SNK characters dominate everyone in the next release, it ain't gonna happen.

"You guys kidding me? There's no difference between this and vanilla SF4, and we all know the PS3 runs at 720p while 360 runs at up-scaled 1080p. This is going to mean that the 360 will look sharper and better on modern LCD TV's while the PS3 will have more noticeable jagged lines and such."

No.

#89
Ex_Ein said on April 17, 2010 at 11:06 a.m.

They're lying:

"Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2:Another major announcement coming down form the press event. Little is known about this game as of now, other than a trailer that was shown at Captivate. I wasn't a huge fan of the first game so few details on this one doesn't force a reaction one way or the other. I'm sure we will find out more about it at E3 2010 as well, stay tuned. "

Grin studios closed down and their developers who worked on BCR just got together less then a month ago and formed a new company. They're lying through there TEETH

bananainsaneface said on April 17, 2010 at 11:09 a.m.

#92
BedtimeShoryuken said on April 17, 2010 at 11:22 a.m.

they should keep the Street Fighter characters to a minimum considering its release is so close to SSFIV. Capcom should get more creative when picking characters for their side

Dante, Nero, both Dead Rising guys, Bionic Commando, JoJo, guy from Dark Void, God Hand characters, Power Stone characters, Resident Evil and Onimusha characters, Phoenix Wright. C.Viper and Ibuki would be nice to see though

#93
recovery said on April 17, 2010 at 11:24 a.m.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

I wanted Darkstalkers and Rival Schools more >:|

They better add Jubilee in to this game

If this game doesn't have new characters I'll so ******* pissed off, you don't know!

More X-Men characters and I'll be happy with this
It BETTER have Gambit

#94
PainKiller said on April 17, 2010 at 11:26 a.m.

they must add ibuki and c.viper, those two would look awesome on a mvc game

Mvc2 almost didn't make it into evo this year and after it's huge online sales and mass voting to keep it in Evo we fiinally get a potential 3rd edition. Almost seems like we have to follow Capcom's script sometimes.

#97
Ex_Ein said on April 17, 2010 at 11:29 a.m.

IT'S FAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm telling you all now that this announcement is FAKE

#98
Ex_Ein said on April 17, 2010 at 11:31 a.m.

Clovr4Lyf

They leave Marvel alone they just pretty much bought out Marvel so it could be like what Nickelodeon did in the 90's but making Noggin which was more for teens while Nick was still for kids mainly

#99
Ex_Ein said on April 17, 2010 at 11:35 a.m.

and before you ask me why I think it's fake:
as the article says:
>>>>>"There's an embargo on the details"<<<<

They obiviously just leaked that the game in development so they broke an embargo or 3(one for each game) so I'm not sure why they're trying to hide MVC3's images unless they're fake
