Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's Heroes & Heralds mode will have online weekly wars

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's Heroes & Heralds mode will have online weekly wars Capcom's Ryan McDougall participated in an interview with the Post-Gazette that covered Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The piece mostly recaps known details about the game, but towards the end, Ryan talks a bit about what gamers can expect from Heroes and Heralds mode, including how the online and offline play will work.

TrainsAllTalk Asks: There are a lot of the questions about the new "Heroes and Heralds" mode. Is it a multiplayer mode?

Ryan McDougall: Heroes and Heralds mode is playable both online and offline. Playing online, you will compete in a weekly war between factions, and every battle counts. That mode is definitely multiplayer, and every online match you win will be rewarded with a new ability card. The offline mode has a bit of a territory-conquest vibe to it, where you’ll be fighting for control over different factions on a map in a single-player campaign.

Daigo interview 'I don't really believe in luck'

Daigo interview 'I don't really believe in luck' MCZ|Daigo did an interview while over at TechTudo in Portuguese and a translated version of that was posted over on Capcom-Unity.

Here is a little bit to get you started.

- How is your mental preparation for a tournament? Do you have any personal ritual or “lucky charm” ?

Mental strength plays a major part in a fighting game, and how to control my emotion not only at big tournaments but even on regular practice matches, I think, is one of the most important elements in playing fighting game. In order to do so, I practice really hard to my satisfaction and to feel confident about my condition. Then, I have no doubt about whatever move I decide to make. No risky situation or danger fears me. That is pretty much where my mental strength comes from.

I think what means to be mentally strong is actually to be mentally stable and healthy. Second guessing your guts and being greedy leads to a mistake, and I believe those mistakes are avoidable as long as you’re mentally balanced. And in order to stay mentally balanced, you do need healthy body. So I also exercise on a regular basis.

I don’t really believe in luck. I believe in dedication and hard work. If I can meet my own standard and satisfy myself in preparing for a tournament, I can deliver good gameplay. Anything that happens during a game, including “lucky” incidents is reflection of my hard work. That’s how I try to see (lol). It’s because being strong doesn’t mean you can always win. There are a whole lot of factors that determine a victory in fighting games.

- In Brazil, electronic sports aren't taken seriously yet - there aren't many videogame conventions, we lack tournaments and players have a hard time looking for sponsors to participate in international events. Even so, there are many talented players (mostly in first person shooters and football games) in Brazil. What should we do to improve this scenario in our country?

You know, we experienced the same situation for a long time in Japan. We struggled with the notion of “a video game is just a game, nothing serious”. People never took it seriously. So I do understand the struggles the Brazilians are going through. But the situation in Japan has changed slowly over the years. I truly believe that it can change in Brazil, too. So please don’t despair. Regardless of the difficult situation, we just never forgot our love for the game, and that eventually led us to a change.

Don’t give up on your passion!

Super Street Fighter 4 AE: Sako (Akuma) vs. Fen Tamu (Balrog) for one hour

In a surprising twist in the Street Fighter scene, we have Sako playing Akuma competently against a Balrog for one hour courtesy of Ov3rheadGreg. Is this a sign that Sako will switch to Akuma when 2012 hits? Mago and Daigo think that Akuma will be the strongest character in AE 2012 and Sako switching wouldn't be the biggest surprise. Check the video to judge Sako's Akuma for yourself.
Note: The unusual voice you hear in the background of this video is a program taking viewer comments and voicing them.

Seth: Street Fighter 5 out before 2019, keeping ideas locked down

Seth: Street Fighter 5 out before 2019, keeping ideas locked down EuroGamer got a short quote from Capcom's Seth Killian on when we can expect Street Fighter 5. It reads:

"If I have anything to say about it, and I do, you will not have to wait ten years for Street Fighter 5," Killian said. "It will be before 2019. Now I'm going to be fired for promising Street Fighter 5 before 2019. I think I should be OK. We'll see. They'll do 2020 just to screw me and make me look like an ass."

Pressed for more information about what he is planning, Seth said...

"This is one of those trap questions where the more I say the less likely it is to come true, where it's like if I've got my idea out there and then there's one guy on the internet who says that's a stupid idea, the whole team will take [it] and go, look, see, it's a stupid idea!

"I have to be very guarded. Or the case will be some other game cops the idea. That happens all of the time. With the rebirth of fighters there's a lot of great games coming out. I'm always paranoid when I'm looking at new games to see if someone's stolen one of the ideas I have in my notebook of awesome stuff. It's not like they've read my notebook or they've cheated me out of it. They've come to it on their own clever reasoning."
