Marvel vs. Capcom 3's training mode has internet lag simulation option

bk4revenge took more video of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, this clip specifically shows all of the options available to players in Training Mode.

One of standout new features is that MvC3 has a "Network Simulation" option which you can set between 0 to 5 bars. Awesome.
If you want to skip specifically to the network mode option, it's at the 1:22 mark.

Big ups to ArykheartX for spotting this.

Galactus' Marvel vs. Capcom 3 reveal trailer

Galactus was officially revealed today as one of the boss characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Here's direct feed video of his trailer.

IGN also has details on how the boss fights were implemented, along with some screen shots and official artwork.

In case you're wondering, the battle with Galactus isn't as simple as fighting the purple behemoth himself. When you first reach the final stage, Galactus can't be bothered with your meddling. He's hungry and would rather focus on having lunch (read: an Earth is the main course). Instead he creates not one but two Silver Surfer-esque heralds, which are metallic versions of villains from the game, like Dr. Doom or Dormammu. The best part? You have to fight both at the same time.

Fortunately the two heralds share one health bar, so with a bit of skilled execution, dispatching these two should be no problem. If it is, you're in trouble, as Galactus will swoop down on you immediately once his two lackeys have fallen.

Dr. Doom vs. Jill and Storm vs. Trish Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdowns

Dr. Doom vs. Jill and Storm vs. Trish Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdowns A couple of new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown spotlights were written up by Sumoslamman. The first one is a Doctor Doom and Jill Valentine overview, giving the usual information including notes on the character's powers and play style. The second piece focuses on Storm and Trish. Here's a sampling of that write up.

Storm's Play Style: Storm looks a lot slower than her god-tier MvC2 incarnation, but she’s kept a lot of her old tricks. Her Whirlwind and Double Typhoon specials keep enemies at the far side of the screen where they’re susceptible to her awesome Hail Storm hyper for big chip or big damage. Combine those traits with her astounding aerial capabilities and her extremely useful lightning Storm hyper, and Storm takes complete control of the skies.

Trish's Play Style: Fast and agile, Trish traverses the screen with ease, applying debilitating pressure one moment and barraging the enemy from a distance the next. While these hit-and-run tactics may seem annoying, Trish’s invisible traps make reaching her for a little revenge that much more difficult. Add in the fact that she has two long-range hypers and her Round Harvest Hyper tracks and does great chip damage, and Trish can keep you locked down without breaking a sweat.

Updated again: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 playable at Best Buy

Updated again: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 playable at Best Buy Updated again: Capcom's Christian Svensson recently confirmed that some Best Buy locations will start putting up a playable versions of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in kiosks. Here's the 411.
Are Best Buy stores really going to have a playable version of MvC3?

Svensson: Yep. Best Buy Xbox 360 interactives will have Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in them for 3-4 weeks starting quite soon.

We would have loved to have had them at GameStop too, but it wasn't an option unfortunately.

Earlier: Some Best Buy stores are setting up kiosks running a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 demo for people to check out ahead of the release date, although according to multiple reports, most of these won't be ready until Monday or Tuesday. You can look on the official website here by punching in your zip code to see if there are plans for a kiosk within 50 miles of your location.

Some players have reported that although a location may have a kiosk listed, it might not be setup, so it's recommended that you call before heading out.

3DS Super Street Fighter 4 isn't AE because of simultaneous development

3DS Super Street Fighter 4 isn't AE because of simultaneous development Yoshinori Ono had a very enlightening interview with GamesRadar about the 3DS version of Super Street Fighter 4. This starts off by covering the ins and outs of the 3DS, how easy it is to code for, etc., but it moves into more familiar territory, explaining how the game was developed and why it didn't have Arcade Edition content included.

This is a pretty good piece, worth your time. Here's a rip.

GamesRadar: The 3DS version isn’t just the disc version of Super SFIV – it’s also the costumes and tweaks that have come via DLC since the console release. If these changes were included, why weren’t the Arcade Edition additions (like Yun, Yang and Evil Ryu) implemented into this version?

Ono: It was largely down to timing. The development of Arcade Edition and SSFIV3D were simultaneous for large portions, and on top of that we didn’t have a lot of time to mess around with a lot of debugging, so we wanted to find a stable, already proven game to start with for our port. We knew Super was out there performing well, the balance isn’t broken and so on, so we knew that would be safe.

That doesn’t necessarily mean this is the end-all version for the 3DS – if it looks like people are interested, we could look into augmenting the game with Arcade Edition features. But once again, the timing did not allow for us to have AE on the platform at this time.
