More Marvel vs. Capcom 3 characters in the next week, Ask Capcom video

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 26, 2011 at 4:14 p.m. PST
More Marvel vs. Capcom 3 characters in the next week, Ask Capcom video The next Marvel vs. Capcom 3 characters — who should be Sentinel and Hsien-Ko given recently leaks — will be officially announced in a week, company vice president, Christian Svensson, revealed in a live Ask Capcom session today.

Svensson also discussed other fighting games, including that Street Fighter Alpha 3 is another title they'd be interested in redoing — although it's currently not in development at this time.

Hit the jump to see a transcript of the notable stuff he had to say about fighting games and also find a video archive of the session.

• The next characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be officially announced in the next week.

• A redone version of Street Fighter Alpha 3 is not in development as this time, but Svensson said he wouldn't mind for it to be. He feels there are some cool things they could do with Alpha. It sounds like this is something Capcom is going to revisit at some point in the future, he did mention it's still a question mark at this point, though.

• Super Gem Fighter, the PlayStation 1 version, was recently approved to go up on the PlayStation Network. Svensson said it should be up in a few months.

• Capcom has looked into releasing SSF4 AE into American arcades, the mechanics and the costs involved wasn't as attractive as they would have liked, but they're still exploring some western release opportunities for their arcade games, though.

• As previously announced, user-submitted artwork will in some way be involved in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition.

• Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting (Turbo) was a port, not a game that ran under emulation.

Here's a video archive of the session.

I love how even though the chat was flooded with MvC3 questions they managed not to even touch on that game.

lol Sven read my comment on the stream: "I just saw Howard the Duck on SRK!"

I was BSing of course but it was pretty funny to see him say it & laugh.

Well, Monday January 31 is the day we'll see the last 2 Character announcements.
Although the Sentinel picture is legit, he is STILL not confirmed. What if this was a beta build, and just like Frank West was scrapped, Sentinel could be scrapped as well because Marvel wanted to represent some other character. If that is true that would mean Sentinel could be DLC.

Why not just announce them tomorrow that way next week I won't be dissapointed -_-

@12

MegaMan.EXE and Ultron would be the best choice.

If sentinel was on the comic then he will be in just end it already.

SFA3? nah give me CvS2 instead.

SHOGUN said on January 26, 2011 at 4:17 p.m.

I hope they pull a fast one on us and announce Sent and Hsien Ko as DLC and announce 2 totally new characters. Just to spite Lupinko, although he'd be technically right, it just wouldn't be completely accurate. Either way, we're getting them and then some.

JustJoeKim said on January 26, 2011 at 4:21 p.m.

It's Hsien-ko and sentinel definitely 100%, but i just want to see some amazing gameplay vids and some cool intro quotes maybe?

keroberus2 said on January 26, 2011 at 4:23 p.m.

I'd love it if on the announcement it was like "UZUMAKI NARUTO and MAGIKARP ARE ANNOUNCED".

Just to break the trend of things.

Liberator said on January 26, 2011 at 4:25 p.m.

...I'd rather see Sheva Alomar and Elektra as two remaining characters, but that won't happen so...but its really wrong move on their side they won't include Elektra on initial roster...

I would be down with Street Fighter Alpha 3. At least they can't remove Bison from there.

caruga said on January 26, 2011 at 5:14 p.m.

I haven't watched the video but I'm assuming they're still taking the BS "pretend it never happened" policy with the premature character reveal?

#22
Sektah84 said on January 26, 2011 at 6:05 p.m.

screw 3rd strike online can we hurry up and get that alpha3 online already?! that was the best street fighter game hands down! it be nice to get a part 4 but i doubt thatll happen

#23
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on January 26, 2011 at 6:13 p.m.

Nice!!!! Hopefully we get some alpha 3 around Christmas time looking forward to it.

My questions was answered! Hooray!

kaigetsudo said on January 26, 2011 at 10:08 p.m.

I laugh whenever I read a comment demanding the reveal of so-and-so in MVC3, only to then complain about how predictable the reveal was when they do confirm them.

What the hell do you people want from this game anyway?

denaycous_dee85 said on January 27, 2011 at 1:16 a.m.

Sentinal was pretty scary in mvc2. Wonder what he has in store now. I rather see 3rd strike online, but sfalpha3 max is not bad either. I think the only coolest character from darkstalkers is Jedah, and that vampire guy, just my opinion. Im hoping they changed there minds on these two but i doubt it.
