New strategy guide for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works, character changes At the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 panel during EVO 2011, Capcom developers Ryota Niitsuma, NeoG and Seth Killian dished a lot of information about the upcoming game. Here's a transcript of the notable details they had to offer.

Important note: The character changes below are not even close to all of the changes being done in the game.

Click the link below for more.

• There will be a new strategy guide for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and some of the people at EVO are involved with the process of creating it. It sounded like this will have frame data and be similar to the BradyGames guide released before.

• Capcom considered a DLC spectator mode for the original MvC3.

• While talking about balancing the games the battle director, NeoG, said there are two different schools of thought when it comes to balancing. One is to balance the characters around the game's tool sets and the other is to give characters unique attributes and balance them out that way. UmvC3 is built around the unique stuff.

• In regards to Venom and Gambit not making the cut, they reiterated that Marvel has a lot of say as to who makes it or not.

• Everyone has mashable attacks in UMvC3, meaning that you can mash the buttons to do more damage.

The Excellent Asian Adventures of Xian and Zhi Ep. 1: Fusion!

Xian and Zhi begin their own excellent adventure. This excellent adventure is a little different though since they plan to play against the best as much as possible while picking their best characters. They roll through the competition and play against some well known names while giving the people some commentary. It's reminiscent of the early episodes done by Gootecks and Mike Ross and is just as enjoyable.
Here's a direct quote from the description.

The CC:Asia team log onto Japanese Xbox Live to hunt Grand Master T.Hawks for PP points, when they run into the bastard lovechild of Mago and Daigo. Can Dragonball Fusion save the day??

Super Street Fighter 4 AE retail sells 300,000, basically meets sales goal

Super Street Fighter 4 AE retail sells 300,000, basically meets sales goal In a financial report released by Capcom today, they stated that the retail release of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition sold 300,000 units in about a week's time. It doesn't appear that DLC numbers were given in the report, but Capcom mentioned that the title, "basically achieved projected sales."

It's hard to compare these current sales numbers with their previous fighters, as the DLC release was available long before the retail version, and the retail sales numbers for the game are only for a short period of time.

Regardless, it sounds like Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition performed reasonably well.

The company also reported a 37 percent decrease in sales, but despite that, their net income increased by $4.35 million. Basically, it sounds like Capcom as a company is still doing pretty well, and their fighting games are selling at a nice pace, which is good news for us in the community.
