Super-Skrull vs. Viewtiful Joe Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Showdown Spotlight

Super-Skrull vs. Viewtiful Joe Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Showdown Spotlight A new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Showdown Spotlight for Super-Skrull and Viewtiful Joe was added by Sumoslamman to Marvel.com. This features the same things you'd come to expect from past articles, including bio and history information along with a breakdown of their play styles. Here's a cut.

Super-Skull's Play Style: Skrull is a jack-of-all-trades. He can rush you down, pulp you from mid-screen with his Tenderizer and snipe you out of the air from almost a full screen away with his unblockable command grab. Quick normals, great specials and the ability to OTG into Level 1 and Level 3 hyper combos make Super-Skrull a force to be reckoned with.

Viewtiful Joe's Play Style: Joe is a pixie character: low on health, big on speed and combos. He doesn’t do much damage and his diminutive limbs lack reach, but his Red Hot Kick gets him in fast. Once he’s in close he can slow his enemies' movement speed to a crawl with one hyper and pound on them in fast-forward with another. Also, being one of the shortest characters in the game, he ducks under quite a few normal attacks, forcing enemies to adapt their battle plan accordingly.

Report: Capcom asked arcade to relock Oni and Evil Ryu

Report: Capcom asked arcade to relock Oni and Evil Ryu According to a report by the head of EmpireStateGamer.com, Ashley Alfaro, Capcom has asked an arcade to relock Oni and Evil Ryu in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, making it so players cannot select either fighter.

Both characters were prematurely unlocked a little ways back, with multiple images and videos hitting the web soon after, which Capcom started issuing take down notices for.

Here's a grab from the page.

"The Capcops are coming! The Capcops are coming!". They sure did. It was only a matter of days before Capcom dropped the hammer on our local arcade asking the owner to relock the unlocked Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition characters, Oni Akuma and Evil Ryu. As soon as news broke out about the unlocked characters, Pro SF Fighters traveled far and wide to get their hands on 'em. Some, who I know personally, have broke night playing these characters non-stop. Although it may have seemed pretty radical at the time, It's a good thing they did. The characters, we hear, will be relocked asap and might be at the time of this post.

Yoshinori Ono has also resurfaced on Twitter, following some statements that made it sound like he was in trouble over the leaks. He had this to say.

So what happened, you got fired? — Soxete

Ono: Phew, that was close. :(

Glad you're back. How much trouble were you in? — LAmontWJR87

Ono: I'm incredibly painful... ;(

Moves listing for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 up on official site

Moves listing for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 up on official site A basic move listing for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has been posted on the official website. Note that there are additional moves and commands not listed here.

This includes some of the character's special moves and hypers along with their Simple Mode commands as well.

This is a great way to get familiar with the cast members before the title launches next month, and you can also see how limited simple mode is, as some attacks lack the ability to be executed in that mode at all.

Tip from NightCrawlerX.

Iron Man vs. Ryu Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Showdown Spotlight

Iron Man vs. Ryu Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Showdown Spotlight A showdown spolight article pitting Iron Man against Ryu is up on Marvel.com's website, written again by Sumoslamman. This offers an overview of both fighter's play styles along with their background stories and general info.

Iron Man's Play Style: Iron Man can fight you from a distance using his Unibeam and Repulsor Blast or use his incredible air mobility to get in quick and beat you senseless with his speedy normal attacks. While his launcher lacks horizontal distance, it’s fast so don’t be surprised to find yourself airborne and comboed for big damage when the Armored Avenger is on the screen. Couple that with the fact that after an air combo he can Smart Bomb OTG into his Proton Cannon hyper and you have a very real threat on your hands.

Ryu's Play Style: Ryu can throw Hadokens that cause a TON of hit stun and work from there or get right in his opponent’s face, using his amazing martial abilities to combo his enemies into his Shinku Hadoken hyper for awesome damage. Teach enemies to respect your airspace by Shoryuken-ing them when they jump in and work your Hurricane Kicks into his air combos so you can cancel again, into the Shinku Hadoken. The Marvel heroes must defeat Sheng Long if they hope to stand a chance!
