Destructoid discusses Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with Ryota Niitsuma

Destructoid discusses Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with Ryota Niitsuma Destructoid put together an interview discussing the development and release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Topics include upcoming disc release and the changes to the MvC3 system.

If you want the whole interview, you can check it out here. You can also take a look at a snip of the interview below.

Destructoid: How much of the gameplay has changed? Is it simply tweaks and improvements for existing characters, or are there new modes?

Niitsuma: It's not just minor tweaks. There are some definitive changes in the game in terms of the battle system and the characters themselves. We've really tried to balance it all out and make it feel better. We did listen to a lot of user feedback and take that into account, especially when making changes to the battle system in the game. We've added new modes, for example, a spectator mode. We wanted to make sure the network and online parts of the game are more robust. While it's not a complete shift, it's vastly improved over the previous version.

Destructoid: Can you go into detail on what has changed for X-Factor?

Niitsuma: One of the biggest things for X-Factor is that we've enabled use in the air. Say you're doing an air combo. In the middle of that combo you can activate X-Factor and can continue to chain combos in the air after you've activated. That's one of the biggest changes. We've also made some minor adjustments to the strength of attacks in X-Factor as well.
