Video from Marvel vs. Capcom 3 panel at San Diego Comic-Con

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • August 1, 2010 at 11:27 p.m. PDT
Caj814 noticed that GameSpot uploaded nearly 50 minutes of footage from the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 panel held at San Diego Comic-Con 2010.

There isn't much in the way of terribly exciting new stuff here, but you get to listen to the developers talk about the game for quite awhile, which is a good experience, although there are a few dry spots.

If you haven't been actively following this title, you'll probably hear some new things that interest you, but for those of us who live and breathe this stuff, here's a recap of notable mentions from the clip.

• There will be in game events with special endings, although this wasn't elaborated on.

• Capcom and Marvel allowed the writer of MvC3 to use their entire roster of characters for the storyline and endings.

• There will be new characters in this game that have never been playable in the Vs. series. Amartersu, Chris Redfield, Dante, etc. are examples.

• 43 minutes into the clip, they demo the new character themes for some of the roster, which lasts for about 5 minutes.

better they announce silver surfer

There are still plenty of things this game needs:

2) Bringing back the top tier characters in MvC2 including Magneto, Storm, Sentinel, and Cable
3) Less focus on the story, and more focus on character balance and online netcode
4) Squirrel Girl
5) Stan Lee as the announcer
6) Mickey Mouse as the final boss

I just want them to show Spider-Man/Deadpool/Dante in a team, with some awesome funny commentary between all of them.

NRR said on August 2, 2010 at 12:53 a.m.

LOL he's the writer? I guess in fighting games plot isn't really the main driving force of the game, luckily.

Dan_CiTi said on August 2, 2010 at 1:02 a.m.


1) No, that's an MvC2 song, this is MvC3, which is a sequel, not a remake. It stands alone and should have it's own memorable music. Also Take You For a Ride is awful. It's not like Let's Get It On from 3S which actually has verses and stands as a real song, TYFAR is just the same words over and over and looses it's novelty quickly.

2) Magneto, Storm, Cyclops = Yes. Sentinel and Cable = NOOOOO

3) They are not focusing on the story that focusing on the story they mean they got an actual writer.

4) Agreed. She needs to be playable.

5) As an optional announcer.

6) No. Mickey isn't a Marvel or Capcom character. So by that logic, Sora from Kingdom Hearts could be in this game, because he is owned by Disney.

cuzzo said on August 2, 2010 at 1:20 a.m.

Stan Lee as announcer would be a sweet ass touch!!! PLEASE DO THAT

cuzzo said on August 2, 2010 at 1:22 a.m.

@ #6 Sora is owned by Square Enix not Disney

Jakulagi said on August 2, 2010 at 1:25 a.m.

@6, it's true that Mickey isn't Marvel or Capcom.. but Marvel is owned by Disney...

Sturmgeist13 said on August 2, 2010 at 1:49 a.m.

Yes, Marvel is owned by Disney but that doesn't mean the Disney can do whatever the hell they want with Marvel.

& developers have already discussed the whole thing, & said Disney has NO jurisdiction on Marvel when it comes to MVC3.

Take You for a Ride has the possibility of coming back.
"The 'Take You For a Ride' song might be returning. It's a popular tune and they did a few new arrangements on it, so we'll see if it ends up in the game."

IKARI said on August 2, 2010 at 4:46 a.m.

So they played war machine's mvc theme and gave it to iron man

shinshom said on August 2, 2010 at 5:37 a.m.

OMFG, dantes wave dash was beautifull

Akaso said on August 2, 2010 at 6:38 a.m.

"Let's see what Iron Man's theme sounds like."

*Plays War Machine's theme*

...I'm OK with this.

mag44 said on August 2, 2010 at 7:11 a.m.

@15 I was really looking forward to IM's remixed theme too.
Oh well... :(

DestinyZX1 said on August 2, 2010 at 7:26 a.m.

All I want is Mega Man X. Give us Mega Man X.

toshi said on August 2, 2010 at 7:48 a.m.

I love how seth can crack jokes and lighten a bad situation. During the technical difficulties, seth did a great job of stalling/lighting things up lol.

othawize said on August 2, 2010 at 8:22 a.m.

Seth better do a good job putting in Mayor Mike Haggar in the mix. He hasnt gotten any action since 1989.

Also, they got to put in some fantastic 4 characters. Mr. Fantastic v. Dhalsim

Akaso said on August 2, 2010 at 8:52 a.m.

Dude, this is like, the fifth time they've said that no one from the Fantastic Four was playable.

Besides, Super Skrull is kind of like all of the Fantastic Four at once. That's still pretty good, right?

FroggyMan77 said on August 2, 2010 at 8:53 a.m.


Goddammit, people! How many times has it been said that the F4 aren't going to be in this game? And what value would it serve to have a member of the F4 if Super Skrull gives us all four at once?

MixerPro said on August 2, 2010 at 9:10 a.m.

Captain America and Iron Mans themes sounded better in the originals than the remixes. what a let down

At least Dooms theme sounded good on the trailer

CypherFDP said on August 2, 2010 at 9:36 a.m.

Lolwut, using War Machine's theme for Iron Man.

Why not just remix Iron Man's theme from Marvel Super Heroes?

powderedtoastman said on August 2, 2010 at 9:43 a.m.

anyone manage to find a clean audio clip of dr doom theme outside of the trailer...

And ryu remix theme sounds kinda forced and distorted, doesnt flow well at all :(

Sektah84 said on August 2, 2010 at 9:53 a.m.

Yes new characters that weren't playable aka don't put storm,cable and sentinel in this! I could see magneto or cyclops but don't make em cheap and broken! It's annoying to see the same teams over and over again when playing online in mvc2 imagine the same thing in 3. That reminds of the new blazblue I bought it the other day and went to play online and everyone pics Rachel and v-12 or whatever the hell her name is. It's annoying.

xShonuffx said on August 2, 2010 at 10:35 a.m.


They have an actual writer, his name is Frank Tieri

He's worked on various Marvel comics in the past most notably Wolverine. He is focusing on all the story in the game from beguinning to end and for each character in the game. He is also a Marvel Super Heroes (Fighter) fan.

This will be the most story heavy fighter in the vs. series but they have a team focused on the netcode and modes. They mention quite frequently they have a number of online and offline modes they have not revealed yet.

xShonuffx said on August 2, 2010 at 10:37 a.m.

I am also curious of why they used War Machines theme instead of Iron Mans from MSH (They used Dooms obviously).

I do know that War Machine's theme IS a remix of Iron Mans theme from MSH but if War Machine is NOT in the game why not take the time to get the theme from Iron Man.

Makes me wonder what they will use for Hulks theme cuz I like MSH one vs. MvC1 version. same with Wolverine.

Hmm maybe they will have 2 or more themes?

SigmaX17 said on August 2, 2010 at 11:28 a.m.

Looking better all the time. But the Major Scrubbage in the second prize match just was funny.

Rofl_bot said on August 2, 2010 at 1:27 p.m.

That was me playing that won the first match for Capcom. Probably the worst game I played for the entire of Comic-con. You can't hear it but pretty much everyone behind me was boo'ing (crying) about me picking hulk. I figured I might as well pick the team I used to win the tournament.

Anyway I had figured out that wave dash a little earlier that day. It's extremely easy to do and Dante isn't the only character that has one (deadpool has one I think, and possible felicia). To do it you you just dash with the stick in the direction you want to go and hit buttons for dash (light attack, medium attack).

Anyway my excuse for sucking is that I was trying new trish dante things for the first time because hulk is normally my main guy. =P

Drpryr said on August 2, 2010 at 4:12 p.m.

Cap's Theme sounds even better than it did before.

portalsofmadnes said on August 3, 2010 at 12:24 a.m.

Where is Mega Man X and Nightcrawler?! 2 great characters with awesome powers that really deserve their chance and would really add to this game.if they bring anyone else back from 2,i hope its either (marvel: venom, blackheart, or shumagorath(capcom:capatain commando,jin,strider,they would look incredible in action with these 3d graphics.

Cortez said on August 3, 2010 at 2:38 a.m.


They already said Disney has nothing to do with this game. Disney also owns ESPN, but Goofy doesn't show up in Sport Center .

For that matter, WB owns DC, but Daffy Duck won't show up in DC universe online.

Cortez said on August 3, 2010 at 2:44 a.m.


Because War Machine's theme sounds cooler, WM won't be using it anyway.

ehashi said on August 3, 2010 at 1:36 p.m.

i agree with Sektah84 dont same booty cheating characters on this game sential was a cheat and cable was to easy to play with.the only old char i see on this game is strider jin gambit and spiderman plus the char now. lol they should think about putting female on the marvel side. i'm saying new ones like elektra and squrrel girl. old females rouge and pyslock. no use for strom thor is better than her in everyway.

cadnexus said on August 4, 2010 at 11:58 a.m.

Bring on Apocalypse!!! Apocalypse has been on two installments and has never been playable. He would be an awesome replacement for Sentinel!!!
