More Marvel vs. Capcom 3 notes from PAX West stream

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • September 5, 2010 at 4:17 p.m. PDT
More Marvel vs. Capcom 3 notes from PAX West stream A few more items of interest came up on the Capcom-Unity PAX West stream this afternoon concerning Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Here's a bulleted recap.

• A strong implication was given that there will be a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Fight Club in Chicago some time this month.

• Seth Killian said that the next cinematic for the game, titled Episode 2, features some amazing stuff, including new characters and will also have the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier from the Marvel Universe.

• In the current build, the X-Factor system offers a 40% damage bonus.

• Killian mentioned again that X-Men fans should be happy with Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Later on, and possibly unrelated, he added that there will be more females added to the Marvel side.

• Dante has around 40 special moves at the moment. The various button strengths make his attacks do different things, instead of slightly changing the properties, as is typical in Capcom fighters.

• There are configurable control schemes in MvC3. You can make the layout like it was in Marvel vs. Capcom 2, but it doesn't change the three attack buttons + launcher/exchange button, plus two assists format.

• Ruby Heart, of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 fame, was apparently a rejected Darkstalkers design.

Thanks to Phoenix and Megadautilus for the heads up.

Phoenix and Rogue maybe?

I'm still pissed that Megaman X won't be in the game. What were they thinking? All the other megamans have already been in a fighting game.

Man Dante is beefed up, well not fully Happy with Cyclops gone, but well see if I'll be completely happy with X-men.. Just my favorites for X-men I would hope to see, Storm, Jean Grey, G, Apocalambitypse,Bishop, and Magneto!!! Then I would be happy if those X-men characters were in or maybe I'm asking too much lol..

It all makes sense now that Ruby Heart were meant to be part of Darkstalkers she would be a cool character if they made a new darkstalkers-she should be added on for that game.

If Spider-Man isn't in this game, it will be fail. Psylocke and Storm will probably be making a return.

Where is evidence saying the Phoenix is not in the game

#12
ehashi said on September 5, 2010 at 4:46 p.m.

i think elektra and psylock is in the game along with rogue but no storm and phoenix. storm is basically a thor and phoenix(jean gray) was deconfirmed.

Taxattack123 said on September 5, 2010 at 4:55 p.m.

X-men fans will be happy? Does that mean Cyclops and The Juggernaut have hope?

Raven said on September 5, 2010 at 4:56 p.m.

I might mess around and get this....Dante is awesome.

DarkRyu95 said on September 5, 2010 at 4:59 p.m.

hope dormamu aint final boss he just dnt seem like he wud be a decent boss.
Also bring back the complete change super for Ryu that was in MVC3 i want to play as ken, akuma and ryu... at the same time!!

#16
Devhawk124 said on September 5, 2010 at 5:03 p.m.

40 freaking moves
where's spiderman, captain commando, and strider.
Also Bass from mega man wanted along with daredevil and Ms.Marvel.

#17
cadnexus said on September 5, 2010 at 5:49 p.m.

#16 no that's referring to Phoenix Wright not the Phoenix from X-men.

Saikobooru said on September 5, 2010 at 5:49 p.m.

Sounds like most scrubs are going to get destroyed while trying to figure out Dante (including me, because I'm horrible at marvel), but nonetheless, that sounds pretty damn awesome!
I can only hope that both Strider and Final Fight characters make an appearance in the game.

Take this with several large grains of salt:

Seth did a bit of a Sengoku Basara MvC3 tease for TGS, second time it was mentioned alongside Monster Hunter.
I'm assuming if we have a Basara character, it's Date, he was planned for TvC.

I'll be amazed if Sengoku Basara got into a crossover game before Monster Hunter did.

GomuJonny said on September 5, 2010 at 6:01 p.m.

40 Special moves eh, better hope they've revamped the crap out of Spider-Man then.

Really, with what Spidey had to work with before, and if they're really trying to make everyone play uniquely, Spider-Sting, Web-Ball, Web-Throw and Web-Swing just won't cut it.

It thought it'd be nice is Spidey could web the sides of the screen with his Web-Ball, so that if the other character jumped into it they would be stuck. It'd at least make the move more useful.

#21
FroggyMan77 said on September 5, 2010 at 6:13 p.m.

Does Dante really need all those special moves? About half of them probably won't be used.

Dan_CiTi said on September 5, 2010 at 6:25 p.m.

About 40 moves? Doesn't sound scrubby at all. I'm just hoping for Spidey, Magneto, Psylocke, and Storm. For capcom, I want Nathan Spencer, Haggar(in place of Gief) and some other characters but I don't even know anymore...I just hope there's lots of characters and they are all varied like they are so far.

#24
Dan_CiTi said on September 5, 2010 at 6:31 p.m.

Please no Elektra...but a creative Monster Hunter character would be pretty awesome and random, I just hope good, different SF characters get in like Viper...no one like Ken, Akuma, Guile or Dhalsim.

KingofSarus said on September 5, 2010 at 6:49 p.m.

@#6: "Clovr4Lyf"

That was an excellent post.

I haven't seen a good post here for a while.

#26
Darts said on September 5, 2010 at 6:54 p.m.

@29
I totally want El Fuerte, personally.

Monster Hunter has some interesting characters to pick from:

Yian Kut-Ku or Rathalos:A Flying Hauzer, but with better fire attacks

Felyne Comrade: Switch between the Hammer and Pick, place bombs and traps, Flute healing Assist?

Hunter: Massive list of weapons to choose from (Melee-focused Volnutt?), Bombs and Traps, Better have a BBQ as his/her Win Animation.

I really want to see a Monster Hunter Stage, Marvel's Savage Land being overrun by Deviljho? Scary.

@Cornwad

The Phoenix Seth is talking about in that article is Phoenix Wright, not the Jean Grey Phoenix from X-men.

@32
Both Jean and Gene are out, last time I checked

#29
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on September 5, 2010 at 7:05 p.m.

@1

how you going to say that Dante's broken? The game hasn't even came out yet. Don't make those assumptions.

One of my buddy's from capcom mention Ms. Marvel. Do you guys thing that she will be in it?

#30
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on September 5, 2010 at 7:06 p.m.

wow typo I meant (think} lol

#31
ajch22 said on September 5, 2010 at 7:20 p.m.

@Darts
Mind pointing out where you found a decomfirmation of Jean Grey? I don't recall seeing anyhere anything about Jean, and the only Phoenix that was decomfirmed so far was Phoenix Wright from Ace Attorney.

Darts said on September 5, 2010 at 7:33 p.m.

I remember it seeing around the same time as Gene was deconfirmed. Can't remember where, maybe the person was mistaken, but they mentioned the both of them are out

Plus, she's been "dead" since 2005, makes more sense to use
Rachel Summers, or Hope, she could be like a Super-Skrull for the X-Men

madstalin313 said on September 5, 2010 at 7:36 p.m.

Ok can anyone please tell that they already knew that Ruby Heart was just a ripped off Jon Talbain?

prtoman or bass please crapcom no roll please no roll

#36
ajch22 said on September 5, 2010 at 9:30 p.m.

Number of attacks doesn't matter that much, what matters is the priority of the attacks, for example, Captain Commando has six moves, but he relies only on one. On the other hand, Hayato has a variety of moves, and he is not precisely top tier in MVC2.

Ex_Ein said on September 5, 2010 at 11:17 p.m.

PREPARE!

cadnexus said on September 6, 2010 at 12:15 a.m.

#33, Where have you check to see if Jean Grey the Phoenix is out, I've seen every topic and post far as I know.

#39
Darts said on September 6, 2010 at 1:25 a.m.

@49
No, it was separate from Emma Frost, like I said, can't remember where I saw it

So take it with http://7amkickoff.files.wordpress.com...

This is why I decided to main Dante when I heard he was announced. He'll probably be a copy-paste from DMC3&4.

Damn Chicago fight club :( I was hoping for a NYC one soon!

WHAT ABOUT IF THEY MADE HULK RED WHEN HE WAS IN THAT X FACTOR STATE NOW THAT WOULD BE COOL

#43
FreedomFan said on September 6, 2010 at 6:25 a.m.


HOW can an X-MEN FAN be happy without Cyclops? Seriously Cyclops is the second most popular X-Man. He's been in every X-Men merchandise(Comics,TV Shows, Games, Toys and Movies).

Freedomfan is right about cyclops.

Doctor Voodoo, Blade, and Havok PLEASE.

As for Capcom side: I just want Protoman (they used Mega Man and Roll, now use Proto Man)
