Capcom discusses the marketing process behind Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Capcom discusses the marketing process behind Marvel vs. Capcom 3 An interview with part of Marvel vs. Capcom 3's marketing team was posted on thealistdaily.com. They talk with John Diamonon and Ryan McDougall of Capcom about the challenges with the marketing campaign and how they wanted to promote the game. Here's a grab.

[a]list: So the re-release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was a large reason why the third game got made?

John Diamonon: That gave us the gauge of the interest, and it gave us a lot of information on how to move forward with it. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is one of the most beloved games ever and there was still a great community for it, with it still having a place in fighting game tournament circles. We didn't know how much interest it still had with everyone, so it was a great gauge of how consumers would respond. It ended up being one of the most successful downloadable console titles ever. I think it's the top PSN title ever and in the top five for Xbox Live Arcade.

[a]list: It's always been one of the more approachable series out there. I can remember it back in college on the Dreamcast... while I was a huge fan of Street Fighter III, it wasn't exactly friendly for people unfamiliar with fighting games. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was a much more popular choice.

Ryan McDougall: I think if you look a decade after that experience, it showed through with Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. We really look forward to approaching a broader audience; that's what we mentioned with the broad art style. We are trying to tap the movie fans, the Capcom fans and the Marvel vs. Capcom fans. So going wide was important, going for more than hardcore fighting game people.

3DS Super Street Fighter 4 supports 6 player spectator mode, SpotPass

3DS Super Street Fighter 4 supports 6 player spectator mode, SpotPass A mysterious, for the time being, feature is available for the 3DS version of Super Street Fighter 4, called SpotPass, it allows the hand held machine to connect to wireless hot spots. AndriaSang (through Famitsu) also briefly detailed the six player lobby system, which works over local wireless.

Using SpotPass, the 3DS can exchange data with wireless hot spots while your system is in sleep mode (this is different from StreetPass, where the data exchanges are done with other 3DS systems). Famitsu did not say how the mode will be used in Super SFIV.

The magazine also provided a look at the game's Channel Live feature. As previously detailed, this feature lets you watch other players as they fight. When in the vicinity of other players, you can search for a local wireless play lobby. Up to six players can watch a single fight simultaneously. As you watch, you can switch between 3D view and standard view on the fly by tapping the X button.

Nemo shares his thoughts on Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition tiers

Nemo shares his thoughts on Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition tiers Nemo, an highly regarded player from Japan, shared his thoughts on Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. The main point of interest for most people is probably the tier list, but there is some general chatter about the title as well.

The piece is in Japanese, but has English translations. Here's a snip.

[What's your] AE Tier List?

Nemo: If you want to [be] playing this game Yun, Yang, Makoto. Using other characters wouldn't be fun in this game.

People who want to win, pick Fei Long. People who want to irritate others, pick Adon.

Using advantageous characters against this 5 strong characters. In order:

1. Yun
2. Fei Long
3. Yang
4. Makoto
5. Adon
6. Ken
7. Sagat
8. Akuma
9. C. Viper
10. Zangief

It's worth comparing this to Daigo, Tokido and Mago's tier list for SSF4 Arcade Edition that was posted a couple of weeks ago.
