GameSpot interviews Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer Ryota Niitsuma

GameSpot is the latest website to get an interview with Ryota Niitsuma, Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer. In this clip, he mentions that the upcoming game will not have over 50 characters like MvC2 did, but as has been stated before, they're shooting for 30+ fighters.

Also, he added that things are still being decided, but 1/3rd of the cast for this game will be characters that didn't appear in MvC2.

Here's the embed.

In related news, it was recently announced that the playable version of MvC3 at EVO 2010 will be a new build of the game, different than the one that was at E3.

Sven: MK vs. SF discussions happened a ways back

Sven: MK vs. SF discussions happened a ways back Capcom's Christian Svensson and Seth Killian made a few more posts on the Unity Boards recently, discussing various subjects from a Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter title to the U.S. release of the new SF4 series artbook.

Here's the rundown.

Are you guys ever going to do a Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat game?

Sven: Years ago there were discussions about something like this happening (during my time at Midway) that never came to fruition for various reasons. I'm not dead set against it BUT this [post] made me smile:

As for fatalities, it's really not that big of an issue; just alter them to be less "blood" and more "spectacle", and you'd basically have a list of Ultras. For example, Sub-Zero's Ultra might involve him slamming the other character around, freezing part of them with every punch/kick, then finish off with his trademark "Ice-ball", which shatters the ice, but leaves the character perfectly whole. It stays true to the character, without being mindlessly gorey. — Daemon Gildas

Sven: Have you met Ed Boon? :P (and I like and respect the Hell out of Ed by the way).

Are you going to release the Street Fighter 4 series official complete artbook in the U.S.A.?

Seth: [...] It looks highly likely that you will see a U.S. release. :D

Seth shoots down Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character speculation, talks criteria

Seth shoots down Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character speculation, talks criteria Seth Killian jumped on the Unity Boards to shoot down one of the rumors floating around about Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Christian Svensson clarified again what they're looking for in the fighters they pick to add to the title.

It's been said that Seth Killian mentioned that Chris Redfield was indicative of the kind of characters you'll see from Capcom's side for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Does this mean characters like Viewtiful Joe, Phoenix Wright, Tron Bonne etc. have no hope? — Chabiko

Seth: Not really sure what you're referring to (there's a lot of "Seth said that..." that never has any actual quotes or links :P) but regardless, it doesn't mean anything about the chances of the characters you mentioned either way.

Capcom characters for MvC3 are based on a number of considerations, including playstyle, popularity with fans/randomness, how they fit into the game overall with the Marvel side, and just who everyone on the team happens to like.

Bottom line: I don't think you'll get very far trying to use the currently revealed characters as a basis for speculation about other characters, so don't worry based on what you've seen so far.

How are the characters that get in MvC3 decided on? Is it by developer preference, or is it the characters most often requested by fans? — Wolfe Mann

Sven: Yes. (it's both).

Ono pitching new Darkstalkers title? More alts. for Super Street Fighter 4?

Ono pitching new Darkstalkers title? More alts. for Super Street Fighter 4? On Yoshinori Ono's Twitter account, there was a hint that the Street Fighter 4 series producer might be pitching a new Darkstalkers title to Capcom.

This started on Monday when he mentioned a new proposal he was working on and would be presenting to Keiji Inafune, who is Capcom's head of research & development and global head of production, and also the creator of Mega Man.

Ono said this proposal was successful, but didn't offer much information into what it might be.

Another Twitter member asked this question after the meeting with Inafune took place and Ono's response follows.

So now you can make a new Darkstalkers/Vampire game, right?

Ono: I'm left speechless yet..... Shhhh.

This implies Ono pitched a Darkstalkers title and Inafune liked the idea. If this is true, there's still a long way to go before the project is green lighted, but this might potentially be very good news for Darkstalkers fans.

Ono also had this to say when asked about the possibility of new alternative costumes for Super Street Fighter 4.

Will you guys make more alternate costumes for SSF4?

Ono: If there is a demand, I think..

This outfit bundle was available free of charge if you pre-ordered the game, but since the street date was broken with SSF4, you may have missed out on this.

It's the final costume pack, except for the complete package the contains all of the 35 new costumes, available on July 27th. It's unknown how much this will cost, but the complete set for vanilla Street Fighter 4 ran $12.49 or 1,000 Microsoft Points.

Capcom's Christian Svensson stated that the Super Complete Pack, will cost slightly more than the vanilla Street Fighter 4's iteration.

Svensson said that the reason for the price increase is because there's an additional 10 costumes included in this download, instead of the original's 25.
