Double Galactus is the most broken thing you'll see all day - Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 "save hack" CMV ft. triple Phoenix Wright team, and more

Pen7Ninja put together a brand new Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 combo video that utilizes the "save hack" trick -- a procedure that allows players to choose three of the same character on one team.

This CMV features triple squads of Wesker, Dr. Strange, Phoenix Wright, and more as they pull off some incredibly crazy sequences.

Additionally, this video gives Galactus some time in the spotlight, as a way to make him playable using the save hack trick was also discovered recently.
