Seth Killian dishes Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character details at NYCC

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • October 10, 2010 at 2:41 a.m. PDT
Keits caught up with Seth Killian at New York Comic-Con 2010 to talk some Marvel vs. Capcom 3. What follows is a solid two part interview breaking down the new character's various strengths and abilities, although this does cover some stuff you've heard before. Hit the jump for another clip.

There's quite a bit more video from the event on Keits' YouTube channel, although some of the content is hit or miss.

Via Shoryuken.

If you thought I'd evolved beyond the joys of calling Keits... [edited name calling]

great interview..thanks. Learned a lot!

Seriously MODOK, chill with the name calling. There's no place for that here. One more violation, and you'll be banned.

good interview but keits is the biggest homer on the planet... i swear he has a timer that goes off every 5 minutes that makes him say shoryuken. "did you forget about shoryuken? hey im from shoryuken. did i mention shoryuken? its been a few minutes time to say shoryuken again."

Great interview would have been better not having to listen to seth. After hearing this i lost all respect for seth.

@goron_ninja: might have to do with him being an editor/admin on SRK? and taking a lot of feedback for his interviews from SRK forums, MvC3 section?

#7
goron_ninja said on October 10, 2010 at 4:22 a.m.

ya it obviously has something to do with that but count how many times he name drops his site its ridiculous. he should just record himself saying shoryuken over and over again and upload that to youtube it would be almost the same thing.

Adnan said on October 10, 2010 at 4:33 a.m.

regardless, it was a pretty good interview, imo. I'm surprised MODOK isn't that 'crazy mind-blowing character' Seth mentioned before. A lot people are saying it's Proffessor X. I've also heard Squirrel Girl, Ant Man, and even Howard the Duck. I kinda don't want Prof. X in, as I'd feel kinda bad beating up a cripple tbh ._.'

#9
Mr_Clack said on October 10, 2010 at 4:37 a.m.

w/e this great interview is wasted on someone counting name drops.

BOTTOM LINE...WE GET GOOD INFO! Thats what's important!

topdawg122 said on October 10, 2010 at 4:39 a.m.

Have you even heard the interview? He hardly mentions shoryuken mostly in the beginning referring to the hardcore fighting crowd. Even if he does who cares hes part of that website and that's a great place for the fighting game community and for new players to get info as well. This was a fantastic and lengthy interview that covered a lot of details for MvC3. I'm eagerly awaiting this game more than ever now. Thanks to keits and Seth for a great listen on hearing about the new characters in detail. X-23 sounds beastly and still wondering who this mind melting character Seth is referring to.

Love the info. I love using Tron and MvC2 and glad to hear she is better overall this time around instead being relegated to the "assist ghetto" as Seth put it.

Glad to hear there are unblockables lol. Wesker is still going to be one of my characters along with Dante. Sure they look great individually but, it's still about the team.

I'm still hyped.

"Great interview would have been better not having to listen to seth. After hearing this i lost all respect for seth."

What does that even mean. The idiocy is astounding. A professional troller, perhaps.

#16
Hrm said on October 10, 2010 at 6:57 a.m.

I'm really curious about whether Modok can block or not.
I mean, based on vids, it really looks like the only way he can defend is to set up a reflector.

#17
TheMasterPlayer said on October 10, 2010 at 7:30 a.m.

Wow, interesting interview. Now I'm really looking forward to the off-the-wall, over-the-top character they're working on.. I wonder what/who they have in mind!

#18
kirbykirbykirby said on October 10, 2010 at 8:10 a.m.

A mega man reskin of protoman would be awesome. Just change the helmet,add a scarf, and put the shield, change the taunts,grunts and victory pose. Im sure they can do it i mean nintendo did it with Zelda and Shiek and they had different moves. I know people don't want clones but they have the same body and walk the same and use the same boss powers when they get them from the bosses from MM9 and 10.

Oh and the interview was really good. Kiets did a great job. It was very different than the typical who is going to be in the game interviews.

#19
12ableable said on October 10, 2010 at 8:18 a.m.

i want them to put the old classic megaman the one that waz in MVC2 with the helmet all blue outfit :)

Wait, what articles?

#21
cadnexus said on October 10, 2010 at 9:17 a.m.

Man.. so the crazy Marvel character is not MODOK, who could it be?
I prefer Mega Man EXE or Starforce, they fit the game better!!

#22
kirbykirbykirby said on October 10, 2010 at 9:22 a.m.

If they put mega man exe or starforce, the x fans are going to flip out like crazy. I just want to know what mega man will make it.

#23
Ex_Ein said on October 10, 2010 at 10:22 a.m.

kirbykirbykirby about the protoman idea, OFF WHAT 3D MODEL? because you need to have a 3D model in the game before you reskin the character to be protoman

and Goron-ninja I counted like 6 minutes where Shoryuken wasn't even mentioned

#24
alexlexus said on October 10, 2010 at 10:23 a.m.

we spoke to seth after fridays panel and he is one of the koolest people around. easy to talk to and he does have a hard job to please the fans without hurting the business.

we got pics with him and i must say keep up the good work seth

#25
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on October 10, 2010 at 10:34 a.m.

Hey catalyst, You think they might put Maximo in the game or like the Green goblin or shocker in marvel?

#26
Ex_Ein said on October 10, 2010 at 10:37 a.m.

Down with MODOK up with MODOC(yes they're two different characters)

#27
Ex_Ein said on October 10, 2010 at 10:39 a.m.

Maximo is basically Authur 2.0 so probably not and GG would be hard to do and shocker isn't that much of a big name

#28
Ex_Ein said on October 10, 2010 at 10:41 a.m.

and yes it's been said that Maximo was suppose to be the new Authur and Maximo games were suppose to be the new GnG which they were difficult for the age group they were meant for

Sorry I'm kind of a noob at MvC2 but what does he mean by unblockables, and do they affect they gameplay alot?

#33
Dan34 said on October 10, 2010 at 2:20 p.m.

@35 An unblockable in MvC3 is an assist and a normal/special that hits both high and low making it unblockable. I don't think they have shown any yet so we don't know how good they will be.

Because the first five seconds of the first video makes it so hard to figure out where these videos came from, right?

#35
Blackapino1984 said on October 10, 2010 at 3:18 p.m.

Whatever. We're getting info regardless anyway. So I couldn't care less if it came from shoryuken or iplaywinner or whatever. It's not like we don't know where keits is from. We go to a fighting game site for gods sake so how would we not know. Also he mentions the site some what frequently throughout the interview anyway.

It's better then those damn interviews from gamespot or kotaku etc.

#36
Blackapino1984 said on October 10, 2010 at 3:19 p.m.

Also he did cite the source as keit's youtube page which is more then adequate.

Catalyst said on October 10, 2010 at 3:36 p.m.

@jpr333

I got it off of Keit's YouTube channel, so that's why I linked back to it, it's no big thing to add a link to Shoryuken as well. All someone had to do was ask. Link added.

#39
Darts said on October 10, 2010 at 3:37 p.m.

Omigosh, Seth totally damned me, kinda.

Also, the Dreadlocks Spencer look excuse is lame, they could of used the rearmed look.

#40
Darts said on October 10, 2010 at 3:54 p.m.

Hearing Seth describe the Crazy Marvel character as having an odd design makes me think of Squirrel Girl.

#41
Catalyst said on October 10, 2010 at 3:57 p.m.

@Jpr333:

I didn't know making up stuff, making threats and being completely off base constituted "real talk." Interesting...

You're trying to create drama and make the situation a bad one. I linked to their content, and I thought it was good, or I wouldn't have posted it. So, yeah... whatever.

#42
Mr_Clack said on October 10, 2010 at 4:56 p.m.

I was playing as Ammy and her small size comes in handy more than anything. Just switch to the big guns and hit from far and crossem up with your assists and you are GOLDEN!

Only other Marvel character I can see getting a "what?" reaction like this is a certain someone I absolutely love:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracula_...

You know it's true if you had to use the link.

If he SOMEHOW made it in, they better not use the awful redesign he had in the X-Men event, it's so lame.

http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/...
This would be perfectly acceptable, if the original suit wasn't possible.

Also, Dracula's Moon Base for a Stage!

Brosephski said on October 10, 2010 at 5:24 p.m.

Based on what Seth has said about the 'WTF' Marvel character, I have to assume it is at least 1 of these 3 things:

1. More of a 'thing' than person
2. Handicapped severely in some way
3. Two characters in one

Those are just my guesses though.

Oh man, that reminds me!

Rocket Raccoon and Groot
Tiny, hairy Cable and a giant ass-kicking tree.

Sadly, Seth deconfirmed Pym in a live stream, which bummed me out. I was the one who asked, by the way.

Hank Pym just can't catch a break.

Wait, need a wife beating joke, uh, uh...

Hank Pym could totally beat Nathan Spencer in an Arm Wrestling contest!

That's a twofer joke, right there

cadnexus said on October 10, 2010 at 6:11 p.m.

Crazy character list: I do hope it's not EGO, he's even more awkward than MODOK. Here are some examples of other weird designed characters in Marvel: Awesome Android, Carnage, Wasp(well not that strange),Zarathos, Freak, Menace, Anti-Venom, Anole, Ego(the giant planet guy), Dr. Bong,Giganto, and Lockjaw(a strange looking bull dog)

#49
cadnexus said on October 10, 2010 at 6:20 p.m.

Does anyone know if Silver Surfer was de-confirmed?

#50
cadnexus said on October 10, 2010 at 6:42 p.m.

Still don't understand why Ghost Rider is not in. He doesn't need to ride his bike to fight. The bike could be used as a super;like he can drag you on his bike and finish you off with a move or two. His penance stare could be his level three... He could do other cool moves with ease having chains and such

Keits: You made a comment in a previous interview that there was a particular Marvel character that was blowing your mind, and you didn't think it was going to be possible to pull off... was MODOK that character?
Seth: No.
Keits: :O

GET HYPE. I still bet it's Silver Surfer.

#53
Kipper said on October 11, 2010 at 12:23 a.m.

I only skimmed the comments, so I'm not sure it's been pointed out, but did anybody notice the guy flip off the camera in the second video at around 3:33?

#54
Wander said on October 11, 2010 at 2:38 a.m.

Seth, please have my babies.

On a side note, I'm guessing the "mind-melting" character is.....hopefully Nightcrawler??

#55
pawn080 said on October 11, 2010 at 12:36 p.m.

I'm so pissed I walked right by them in part 2 and didn't even notice. I must have been zoned out by the lines to play MvC3.

#56
leugimnabetse said on October 11, 2010 at 4:40 p.m.

Im just hopping for cammy TOT....i think That the mind melting character is kinda like medusa from marvel...she is from fantastic 4 and she will be kinda like a shuma gorath only that she will be hot XD

#57
cadnexus said on October 12, 2010 at 12:19 a.m.

?The crazy character could be Professor X?

#58
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on October 12, 2010 at 9:17 a.m.

guys its very obvious the character might be galactus or apocalypse but don't jump on my gun yet its just a suggestion.

#59
cadnexus said on October 12, 2010 at 11:08 a.m.

It's Sponge Bob!!!
Just kidding, well whoever he or she is, I hope it's not a let down character.

#60
cadnexus said on October 13, 2010 at 10:12 a.m.

I have some ideas on 2 possible characters the crazy character could be. Here's another clue-they got rid of Cyclops. He never said the character looked weird, but just the design surprised him (which means game design on how the character plays).. The word "crazy" sounds like this characters has numerous abilities and is very powerful-he or she must also have tons of beam attacks(which may explain why they Cyclops is not in) and other abilities as well.. The characters I came up with is Sentry or Apocalypse. Sentry is "crazy powerful and can shoot beams from his eyes AND hands, and has other abilities. Sentry can also resurrect himself so he could have a move like that. Apocalypse has numerous abilities as well. Who knows it could possibly be both is there's 8 more to go for the Marvel side.

#61
Darts said on October 13, 2010 at 3:34 p.m.

You guys are forgetting something, it's a character new to Capcom fighting games(In other words, not a someone or something from an old game). Something that would seem hard to implement.
