Super-Skrull Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by Sumoslamman

Super-Skrull Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by Sumoslamman Sumoslamman, is back with another article in his series of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character analysis. This one focuses on Super-Skrull and breaks down several of his videos to give you a better idea of how he plays.

Normals

From what we can see here, it looks like Skrull’s normals are insanely quick with ok range. He also has decently fast back and forward dashes (Video 1 – :45). Not much else to say really. One thing to note however; in the air Skrull has what appears to be a command normal that stops his forward momentum and sends him careening to the ground much like Hayato’s aerial roundhouse in MVC2 (Video 3 – 2:44). It might act as an overhead and looks like it causes a radial explosion effect in front of Kl’rt (Video 3 – 2:45).

Specials

Tenderizer: Skrull unleashes a barrage of elastic arm, rock fist punches. This move hits OTG and bounces the opponent up for some hyper punishments (Video 3 – 2:03). It also hits horizontally (Video 3 – 2:30), and acts as an anti-air (Video 1 – 2:45). It can also be utilized in the air at a downward and upward angle but for fear of filling this page with embedded videos you can check out this link. Skrull does it at 2:05 in the video. The Tenderizer looks wickedly difficult to punish simply because it comes out fast, has insane range, can hit low, and can be cancelled into hypers. Sick.

Capcom Store offering TE FightSticks for $99

Capcom Store offering TE FightSticks for $99 The Deal of the Week on the Capcom Store is Mad Catz Tournament Edition FightSticks for $99. While this is an offer that's come up several times at other retail outlets, the Capcom Store offers shipping to some countries outside of the U.S., so if you've seen a deal like this in the past, but haven't been able to take advantage of it because of where you live, it's worth seeing if you can get this shipped out to you.

This offer is good for players living in the U.S. of course, too.

Also, the Mad Catz buy one get one deal is still going on via the GameShark store, so if you'd rather get two sticks instead of one, this is a great hook up.

Full translation of Daigo's Super Street Fighter 4 AE Famitsu interview

Full translation of Daigo's Super Street Fighter 4 AE Famitsu interview Samjkim has translated the Famitsu.com write up with Daigo Umehara, collecting his thoughts on the changes in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, part 1 and part 2.

A partial transcription was posted earlier, but this is the entire shebang. Here's a clip.

Toyoizumi: You got to play some AE. What are your first impressions?

Umehara: Impressions… Basically that it’s over for projectile characters (laughs). All the non-projectile characters have gotten buffed, whereas I think Deejay is the only projectile character that has really gotten buffed. Sagat has gotten better, but Ryu, Akuma, Guile, Dhalsim, and I suppose Chun, they’ve all gotten nerfed. And grapplers have also gotten buffed. Projectile characters were strongest in Vanilla, but it’s the other way around now in AE. But I plan to use Yun so it’s not a big deal for me. I guess that’s my impression of AE.

Toyoizumi: It seems there are some people that say that Ken is now the best shoto.

Umehara: Well Ken was originally somewhere halfway between a projectile and non-projectile character. And I wonder just how far he can really get against the top tiers. He loses to Zangief, so…

Producer confirms new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 info at Jump Festa

Producer confirms new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 info at Jump Festa AndriaSang.com translated a blog post by Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, Ryota Niitsuma, that stated new information of some sort would be shown at Jump Festa, a expo happening in Japan this weekend.

In today's post at the MVC3 dev blog, Niitsuma said that the team originally didn't have any major announcements planned for the event. However, they suddenly decided to "share new materials" during the game's noon stage show.

The phrase "new materials" could mean anything, but let's hope Niitsuma isn't just talking about some new artwork of existing characters.

Not much to go off of here, but as soon as new information breaks, you'll be able to find it here on the front page of the site.
