Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer interviewed by Ausgamers.com

Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer interviewed by Ausgamers.com Ausgamers.com has a pretty interesting interview with Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, Ryota Niitsuma. This ends up being a solid read with all sorts of random morsels about the game. Here's a bulleted run down.
  • Capcom is aiming for this to appeal to hardcore and casual gamers again. The idea pitched at the presentation was for 'maximized depth' with 'minimized complexity'.

  • Key team members from the past Vs. games are working on MvC3.

  • The game's subhead "Fate of Two Worlds" will actually have meaning. The team is utilizing the MT Framework to ensure a visually compelling story for each character.

  • There are no plans for an arcade release.

  • Nemesis and Tyrant of Resident Evil fame weren't included because they'd be a little too grotesque to get the game in under it's current expected rating.

  • The Fantastic Four will not be in the game.
And a copy and paste from the article.

AusGamers: In terms of online, from an Australian perspective it's actually quite difficult to get good matchmaking and therefore good matches happening, and this was very true of Street Fighter IV which didn't have the best matchmaking system out there. However, there are a few games out there now that do cater to countries like ours, with poor connections and generally slower internet than the rest of the world, with options to search for local hosts and servers - is this something you're looking at for Marvel Vs Capcom 3?

Niitsuma: I hate to keep telling you that is something we're taking under consideration but... that is something we're taking under consideration (laughs). Because the game isn't finished yet, we're still looking at how we can integrate all the online elements and we're looking into what works best for the game itself. As for what you mentioned regarding local servers, that is something we're looking at very closely as a key idea that has been floated to us; the issue then is how do we go about implementing that so as to make sure we have a smooth system in place for everyone and that anyone can use, but rest assured it is on the table and it's something we're looking at very closely.

Not having the Fantastic Four makes sense, since Super Skrull basically has all of them covered.

IMO it's a big mistake to just outright say "No Fantastic Four." Those characters have a lot of potential, especially for an epic Mr. Fantastic vs Dhalsim matchup.

Too "grotesque"-we going for an E rating here?

HAHAHAHA Wow, what is it with marvel and capcom (or whatever the circumstances are)never putting in the Fantastic four in these crossovers... They happily add Dr. Doom and now the possible super skrull but they just refuse to put the four in for some reason.

Awww... And i thought Fate of Two Worlds was just a play on FTW =P

Boo @ no Nemesis. He'd be such a great addition.

The Fantastic Four thing may be some intellectual right deal. It's weird for them to outright say none of those characters will be in it, unless there is something legally blocking them from being included.

I'm just imagining a sad Super Skrull and Dr. Doom, not able to take on their heroic playmates. With Chris and Frank twiddling their thumbs, wishing for an "M" rating so they can make a bloody mess out of Tyrant.

I'm curious, why can't they include "grotesque" characters? Do they mean they'd be too frightening? Too bloody? Too damn ugly for the masses? Not sure why that's not allowed, but including girls with 90% of their breasts showing is.

They could've just gone with Mr. X from RE2. He's cool as hell and doesn't have the exposed heart/tentacles of Tyrant/Nemesis

@ 12

Agree.

"Capcom is aiming for this to appeal to hardcore and casual gamers again. The idea pitched at the presentation was for 'maximized depth' with 'minimized complexity'."

This sounds like somewhat TvC involved and that's not really looking any good at all...

FF are lame anyway. Bring on Dante and Deadpool!

Okay, now I know this is highly improbable, but I'm pulling for Howard the Duck.

He would be the perfect compliment to Felicia, who is a human/animal, but looks like a human dressed up as an animal. Howard is an animal dressed up as a human! She's sort of cute and innocent, he's crude and filthy minded. I'm sure he'd have a thing or two to say, or think, about her *wink wink*. Plus, the only thing grotesque about him is his mind.

Fate of Two Worlds indeed.

The "no FF" sucks, imo. :(

No arcade release? That can't be good. :(

No plans for an arcade release.

If you message Capcom asking for it, and ask your local arcade tosend a request to Capcom for an arcade version, they'll be much more receptive to making one.

Money talks.

this is the reason i hate the T rating you can have smoking hot chicks wearing skimpy cloths and its ok but the moment we see a little blood it shoots the rating up to an M rating

Namor and Black Bolt need to be in this game, although they're pretty OP in the comics.

in a diffrent topic...call me crazy but would it be cool to have a Marvel vs DC game? it can be done by two diffrent developers. Capcom & the people wh made the MK games (Midway is no more). one would be rated T (Capcom) the other would be rated M. the MK developers did a good job with MK vs DC. just a thought. peace :)

#30
mr_e said on April 23, 2010 at 4:52 p.m.

i suppose its ok that super skrull take the place of FF. not a big fan of him but ok. shame there wont be any tyrant or nemesis. all we can do is wait for more info. lol wow its gonna be loooooong year. peace :)

They should just add Invisible woman and have Jessica Alba in HD as the sprite.

@MR-E MK is still alive and kicking its just owned by Warner Brothers.

h1tm0nl33 said on April 23, 2010 at 6:37 p.m.

that and marvel vs dc is impossible disney owns marvel and WB owns DC that and the massive ego's of the both company's head chiefs would not let it happen. Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter/Capcom is more likely to happen...hell killer instinct 3 would be more likely

Super Skrull is ok dude seems alil wacc to me but why aint nobody saying anything about ghostrider blaccpanther silver surfer blade beast vs blanka carnage x-23 a younger magnito punisher doc oac blaccbolt them guys would be cool

#35
FrynkieDeuce said on April 23, 2010 at 11:16 p.m.

anime versions of Wolverine and Ironman (would be cool but unlikely), new X-men, and Hulk from Planet Hulk.

then on capcom's side, someone from sengoku basara, monster hunter, megaman x, Gene (GodHand) and more ... like someone form RE5, Dante

Markus said on April 24, 2010 at 4:45 a.m.

No Fantastic Four again... booooooo!

Funkenstein23 said on April 24, 2010 at 10:06 a.m.

I don't really mind not having the fantastic four. They're neat but they also take up four slots so its better they aren't in. More cast diversity you know? I think the people I'm most excited for as of now are Super Skrull Deadpool and Dormammu

#38
Kenthen said on April 24, 2010 at 1:13 p.m.

If they can't use a normal Tyrant then they should add Mr. X instead. Although I'm not sure if people nowadays would recognize him, when he isn't fully mutated he just looks like a big dude in a trenchcoat.
