Present for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 fans Wesnesday, guess reveals contest

Present for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 fans Wesnesday, guess reveals contest Marvel's Chris Baker left a short, but sweet message for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 fans on his Twitter account. It reads:

#MvC3 fans, prepare yourselves for a present from me by Wednesday...

He added this note a few minutes later.

So, apparently my last tweet has spawned at least three message board posts. I don't want to overhype anything. It's an interesting blog post if you like Marvel and you're hardcore into the game. It's not a HUGE reveal or anything, but it does have some unique insight.

Capcom has also been asking readers to anticipate the characters that will be revealed next on their Facebook page, offering game codes for accurate guessers.

Also, if you vote for MvC3 as the most anticipated game of 2011 on GameSpot's site, and it gets over 10,000 votes, Capcom will release high resolution versions of Udon's character art for MvC3.

Capcom: Don't believe all Marvel vs. Capcom 3 rumors, roster news

Capcom: Don't believe all Marvel vs. Capcom 3 rumors, roster news Capcom staffers left a not so subtle message about some of the rumors floating around recently concerning Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Christian Svensson also jumped in to inform fans that they will likely know the entire roster before the game is launched on February 15, 2011, and he went on to talk about how MvC2's re-release came to be.

I read a rumor that there is only 8 stages in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, what gives?

Svensson: I'll warn you not to believe everything you read on the Internet.

So, we're getting more than 8 stages?

Svensson: As a warning, I didn't say there were more, or less. I just said, beware what you read because not everything you read is true.

Shortly before Jump Festa, rumors had started via a Twitter account that there would be new characters revealed, Capcom left this message on their MvC3 Facebook page after the expo ended.

Good night true believers. Don't believe everything you read on the interwebz.

Arcade releases enhanced, Sven excited about Street Fighter 3 Online

Arcade releases enhanced, Sven excited about Street Fighter 3 Online Capcom's Christian Svensson made a few posts about general topics recently on the Unity Boards.

His answers don't dwell on any particular topic, but he does mention that Capcom's arcade ports are not just a straight emulation job, which given recent history, should be a trend that continues, and he adds that he's jazzed about Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, which should get fans even more hyped up for the upcoming re-release.

Why are there no Capcom arcade classics on the Xbox Live Game Room?

Svensson: The online group in Tokyo has been responsible for that side of the business. It has been in, "wait and see," mode to see how Game Room was going to work out/what the quality of the emulation was going to be and what features were going to be added over time. Last I'd heard, we're still in that mode.

And while that may work itself out someday, in the mean time when you look at Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, Final Fight/Magic Sword, Bionic Commando Rearmed I/II (and when you see what we're doing with Street Fighter 3: Online Edition), we've been greatly enhancing our arcade efforts rather than just straight emulation.

Tell me what you're doing with Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition!

Svensson: Not a chance... this is one of the projects I'm most excited about and we're keeping things under wraps until we're much closer to release. :-X

3 Green Bars Season Finale: Japan

The Season Finale of 3 Green Bars has been posted by CptMunta.
Here's a blurb about this episode.

This is the final jumbo sized episode in this series of 3 Green Bars. This episode I'm in Tokyo Japan on a quick 3 day stopover. It was post SBO and the middle of the week so I was having trouble getting in contact with the english speaking community there.

I was lucky enough to speak with Paul from the UK who is now living in Tokyo and we discuss how the stigma of be a hardcore gamer has changed and retro gaming.

I talk to Bull410 the host of Final Round Japan, a ranbat series which he runs with Scott Popular, which has top players like Tokido and Mago entering. We talk about FRJ, God's Garden, SBO, Super SF4 being on consoles, Marvel 3 and CAPCOM FIGHTING ALLSTARS!

I also visit Tokyo's most famous arcade hotspots.
