Instead of na udpate, I believe a MvC4 would be a better choice.

Not to be a prick but you put god instead of "good".

Secondly can we give games a considerable amount of time to grow before asking for updates.

Awesome. I'd hate for Marvel to be turned off by whiny fanboys. It's good to see that the community can compose itself and generate sincere feedback, and it's even better that it's at least *partially* being acted upon.

Basically every post SFilp makes has numerous spelling and grammar errors in them, just part of the norm =)

In all honesty, this is great news and I hope we get some updates. I am obsessed with this game and want mooooore.

@1 Yes, we have barely optimized 1/4th of the cast, and starting work on a new games with different cast/mechanics is a sound idea

#19
Ninjagoon said on January 11, 2013 at 2:42 p.m.

maybe 4 new characters and 2 new stages... more alt colors...hell anything to keep it alive (to casual gamers). If they do add more characters, Gene, Asura, Venom and Rogue are on my wishlist

#20
Dblock209 said on January 11, 2013 at 2:43 p.m.

I'm down with new characters, but they need to give some lower tier characters some buffs. It doesn't need to become a nerf fest of the top tier.

#21
Garcian_Ulmeyda said on January 11, 2013 at 2:53 p.m.

Asura, Gene, Mega Man X, and someone from Killer 7 for Capcom characters and Gambit, Silver Surfer, Punisher, and Daredevil for Marvel and if possible Captain Marvel (formerly Ms. Marvel) and Luke Cage are my picks for new characters. And at least 4 new stages

#22

@22 They tried silver surfer they didn't know how to implement his Surf Board in combat and he was looking to similar to ice man.

@20 They tried Venom but his symbiote suit was clash with the new graphics. It just wouldn't come out good they said.

"Good to know; will pass along!"
I read that as "will pass a bong" hehe.
Hopefully we get more characters and hopefully Peter Parker Spider Man as a playable character. Glad to see Dock Ock in the game, but I want Peter Parker.
Anyway, here is hoping to see Jin and CapCom in the roster.

#31
HyperCombinationFinish said on January 11, 2013 at 4:04 p.m.

Since errbody's doing character wishes I'll give mine.

Capcom: Jedah, Dr. Wily, Jin, Skullomania
Marvel: Loki, Ms. Marvel, Venom(Brock), Rogue

#32
BionicRebel said on January 11, 2013 at 4:08 p.m.

@32 hmmm why didn't I think of Loki.. Almost nobody did.. However it's an excellent choice could be such a cool character!

#33
HyperViperNZ said on January 11, 2013 at 4:28 p.m.

Enchantress or Scarlet Witch would be my choice for a new character. Pair them up with Dr Strange for the ultimate sorcery team!

#34
gluemchen said on January 11, 2013 at 4:38 p.m.

I`d like to see if Marvel could be somehow convinced to make a PC version of UMvC3. I`d be so happy to have that game in my PC library. I do have the game on PS3. I just prefer the quality and lower latency on PC more.

#35
jtir123 said on January 11, 2013 at 5:01 p.m.

My wishes

Capcom:
Date Masamune (Devil Kings/Sengoku Basara)
Jedah
Mega Man Classic w/ Rush (same exact at MVC2 but Rush has attacks tied to one of the normals)
Asura
Gene

Marvel:
Wasp (Janet)
Luke Cage (He has to be in with Iron Fist...)
Cyclops
Ms. Marvel
and...maybe... Emma Frost

#36
Egon_Spengler said on January 11, 2013 at 5:08 p.m.

I would absolutely love some fresh new content for UMvC3. I still play this regularly and probably will continue to do so for a long while.

My list:

Marvel: Psylocke, Cyclops, Venom, Ms. Marvel, Black Widow, Thanos
(use Thanos to sell this game to Marvel; he's a major player in upcoming movies)

Capcom: Mega Man, Juri, Asura

a few new stages would be nice too

#37
doctorzoidberg said on January 11, 2013 at 5:39 p.m.

jeez you don;t have to nerf vergil he has sh!t for dick health wise and all that you have to do is buff the low tiers so they don't suck and besides i almost never see vergils win i always see him get bodied in every video i see for the most part besides he is like wesker people will find ways to beat him no problem in time.

but yeah this game NEEDS NEW characters asura would be cool.

#42
HyperSentinel said on January 11, 2013 at 6:27 p.m.

As far as balance changes, have doom's hidden missles disappear on hit only when he's an assist, if he's on point they stay and for morrigans astral vision no meter gain unless hit connects, chip damage doesnt count. And for new characters how about Groot and Twelve or Lord Raptor.

#43
Neoxon said on January 11, 2013 at 6:45 p.m.

Again, fair warning. If we get more characters, expect Avengers & Guardians of the Galaxy on the Marvel side rather than X-Men & Spider-Man reps (gotta promote those movies).

Buff Hulk.

Well that didn't take very long for Marvel to become aware of the demand lol. I know it takes a ridiculous amount of corporate negotiating to get a contract for this kind of thing, but I hope Capcom and Marvel can work something out. I'm sure Marvel doesn't mind the massive amount of free advertising they get from all the streams, not to mention the plugging they can do for current properties.

rather than characters, i'd rather see a patch for the current roster and gameplay. Mainly:

-nerf TAC
-buff some of the worst characters (hsien-ko, ghost rider, etc.)

#68
SAOTOME2U said on January 14, 2013 at 6:56 p.m.

Given a year has gone by with no significant updates to UMvC3, I think it's safe to say this version of the game is done. Every year since SF4 has been out has had a new version, so this is why I think UMvC3 is all done. My thought is that these tweets by the Marvel reps are more of an indication to them to send to their powers that be that there is interest in a completely new MvC game, which I'd be more in line for. Personally, UMvC3 is just not for me, but I'd be willing to give MvC4 a fair chance, too.

#69
Batmang said on January 14, 2013 at 7:10 p.m.

Man, this is great news. The possibility of an update gives me hope. Even if it's only a balance patch, I wouldn't mind at all. Provided they make good adjustments, though. Some of the buffs they made from Vanilla to Ultimate were... questionable.

If they DO update with characters, I'd like to see:

-Ms. Marvel (Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers, whatever you wanna call her. She was rumored to be in Avengers 2, not sure if the rumor is debunked though. Either way, she kicks serious ass, and her energy absorption could add something interesting.)
-Hank Pym (I'd prefer Yellowjacket, but because of the Ant-Man movie, he'd probably use his Ant-Man suit if he made it in.)
-Wonder Man (My somewhat obscure Avengers pick lol. I think people would like him.)
-Vision (Another Avenger. He'd be friggin broken with his phasing.)
-Luke Cage (Why didn't I think of this one? He's a must if they do an update!)

Don't really have requests for the Capcom side, beside Megaman. Gene and Asura would be good picks, though.

i wouldn't mind more Characters,possibly MVC2 character pack,colors,stages but NO DAMN NERFS because some scrub players don't want to learn to adapt to the mechanics,there will always be top tier characters that bodies the rest of the cast get over it,Marvel 4 can wait another year maybe 2 but dats pushing it but i love Marvel Vs Capcom Series and the hype at majors :D

#74
Torrie_De_Goddess said on January 14, 2013 at 7:40 p.m.

No need for a 4th game. If they choose to do a second update one day then fine. I wont purchase it unless it has atleast one or two things that I want (I bought MvC3 1st week brand new to show my support; skipped UMvC3 due to what it meant for Vanilla).

Honestly, the only way I'll support an update is if it includes at least two characters from my wish list (being a fan of comics since I was a child and still going out to purchase Marvel's ridiculous and currently lackluster Marvel NOW line of comics. Argh.).

Wishlist for would-be update:

Marvel:
Rogue (my fave comic character EVER. She is for Marvel what Nightwing is to DC for me. Auto-support).
Moonstone
Thanos (because duh and Avengers 2. Duh.)
Psylocke or Elektra (I love the former but for series sake the latter would be acceptable albeit far less interesting)
Green Goblin (Best Spidey villian ever)
Anti-Venom (For Venom fan sakes)

CAPCOM:
Jin (Loved Cyberbots and Tech Romancer and loved this turtle in MvC)
Tessa (WTF isn't she in yet? Fave Cap female character after Rose)
Akira(vs X-23 and because she isn't Sakura and is a main RS character)
Gene (because he obviously has fans that will play him cough*Wright*cough)
Bison (I wanna see his alpha/MvC moveset in this NOW!)
Megaman EXE (only MM I'd like to see that isn't Classic)

Other than that, I don't care to see nerfs or buffs as most of the cast has not been explored thanks to wanting quick wins. Don't care about stages either. You include about 4 of my picks (especially Rogue) you got's yourself a day 1 purchase.

Yeah, Rogue truly makes me forget about all of the things I dislike about this game (legitimate complaints and all).

@75 those are some prety good character choices,i like how you explained why you would like them in the game.
Akira vs X-23 was genius.
I would like to see a Donovan vs Strange that would be epic.

A DLC update with Venom,X,Jin,CapCommando,some Rival Schools or Powerstone characters,I would lay down sum cash for that.

#87
Vothsair said on January 14, 2013 at 10:21 p.m.

I'd like an update with port to PC and 4 new characters. Psyloche, Rogue, Megaman, Gin. Aerial combo bugs removed. Buff to the lower tiers and females who somehow have lower health and less options than the males. Nerf to hidden missiles so they are removed when Doom is hit. Replays. Possible nerf to damage all around so you can't 1 touch kill characters.

IMainDanHibiki said on January 14, 2013 at 10:51 p.m.

Thanos, Loki, Gene, and Asura. Marvel gets to milk advertising for Avengers 2, fans get some badass Capcom characters.

Win/Win in my books.

tktktk43 said on January 15, 2013 at 4:25 a.m.

I concur with the majority of you. If they do decide to update umvc3 or make mvc4 they need to buff most of the cast. For me personally, I don't understand why they nerf shuma. They buff devitalization by making it a command throw but nerfed the heck out of him; i.e. his spike ball hyper sucks now without invincibility and some of his good normal moves in vanilla sucks now. Personally, I don't think the spike ball should be grab-enabled it's so stupid that it is.
