Thor vs. Amaterasu Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown

Thor vs. Amaterasu Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown Thor and Amaterasu are the latest characters to be profiled on by Sumoslamman. As with past showdown spolight articles, you get to see an overview of both characters, including some notes on their play styles. Here's a clip.

Thor's Play Style: Thor needs to get in close to do damage but when he gets in there, watch out! Mighty Strike and Mighty Smash can help him close the distance while attacking and if Mighty Smash connects, you get a free ground bounce for free punishment. His Mighty Tornado command grab can be comboed out of into some terrifying aerial shenanigans but the trick is landing that first hit. His 8-way air dash can be canceled, helping to surprise enemies, and his Mighty Thunder hyper is incredibly versatile, giving Thor an edge in any combo situation.

Amaterasu's Play Style: Amaterasu has so many options in this game it’s ridiculous! She has three different sets of normal attacks to keep your opponents guessing, and each comes with its own unique special move. Ammy can play keep-away with her Cold Star projectile and the long reach of her Rosary Bead normals or dash in with the Reflector or the Glaive to start some combo action into OTG into hyper madness. Her instant full screen Okami Shuffle does great damage and her tiny hit box causes tons of normals, specials and hypers to go right over her head!

Seth talks Phoenix's health in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, training mode options

Seth talks Phoenix's health in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, training mode options A number of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 related posts were added to the Unity Boards from Capcom staff members Seth Killian and Christian Svensson. Here's a rundown of what they had to say.

Will you increase Phoenix's health in MvC3?

Seth Killian: No Phoenix health buffs just yet, sorry :) Her health has continued to go down over the course of development based precisely on our extreme respect for her overall potential.

I keep saying it, but nobody likes the answer because it's a tough one: If you want to win with Phoenix, don't get hit. It's tough, but not impossible. She's not for beginners, and I would never start a match with her, but she's one of the most explosive characters in the game.

On point she has a terrifying rush and extreme mobility (8-way airdash, speed, flying, instant teleport to multiple positions), and an effective way to set it up from far away (tracking fireballs). Her Phoenix traps and faster fireballs are also a solid keepaway, and when she "goes dark" you can totally flood the screen with projectiles. She's very, very good.

Akuma Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by Sumoslamman

Akuma Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by Sumoslamman The latest Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis from Sumoslamman covers Akuma. If this is a fighter you're considering playing, this is a good overview of what he is, and isn't capable of.

Normal Moves

Akuma has very fast normals, his jab is sickeningly quick, and his sweep combos into his launcher which is always a plus (Video 1 – :22). His aerial combo finisher lets you OTG with either of his aerial beam/fireball hypers making Akuma a ridiculous threat once he’s got you airborne (Video 1 – :53). On the ground he can combo into his Messatsu-Goshoryu (Uppercut hyper) from a very simple normal combo (Video 2 -:55). Unfortunately he has virtually no range on any of his attacks besides his low sweep, and even that’s not saying much.

He also a command normal, at least that’s what it looks like. He basically does a jumping spin kick that can be comboed into and cancelled into Hyakkishu (Demon Flip) mix-ups (Video 1 – :29, Video 2 – 2:01) as well as into hypers (Video 1 – :45). It has a decent amount of start-up so you don’t want to be using this outside of combos. Just like in MvC2 Akuma has quick normals but no real range to speak of. Hopefully that’s where you can substitute Demon Flip shenanigans, air fireballs, and assists to get him in close.
