Capcom hopes to squeeze another fighter or two into Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Capcom hopes to squeeze another fighter or two into Marvel vs. Capcom 3 G4TV posted a solid preview of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. They discuss the upcoming title with Seth Killian, quickly going over the new characters and simple mode.

Also, one of the more interesting parts of the article is when Seth mentions that they're trying to hold off on announcing a final roster number because they're hoping to squeeze more characters in before deadline.

Killian added that Capcom also doesn't want to say whether or not there are any more surprises yet to come or hidden characters. Here's a copy and paste from the write up.

G4: So, tell us about Tron Bonne and X-23.

Killian: So, Tron plays very similarly to Marvel vs. Capcom 2, new looks, some new moves of course. Some surprises. But, her core techniques are still there. She's got a brutal level three grab that we may be able to show off on stage later this weekend. X-23 is a female clone of Wolverine, a lot of claws of course, and the footy claws as well. She's basically what you call a rushdown character, so ... in your face, going high, going low, with some interesting ways to extend her action in the air as well. Very fast, she's one of the fastest characters in the game. Basically what you'd expect from staying true to the character from the comics.

PC Super Street Fighter IV very unlikely due to piracy

PC Super Street Fighter IV very unlikely due to piracy AndriaSang.com translated an interview Yoshinori Ono held with 4Gamer.net. Ono claims there will not be a PC version of Super Street Fighter 4 due to how much the original titled was pirated on that platform, unless much better copy protection can be put in place.

Here's a healthy copy and paste from the write up.

It doesn't look like this is going to be happening. In a 4gamer interview today, series producer Yoshinori Ono said that, due to high piracy with the PC version of the original Street Fighter IV, there are currently no plans for a PC version of Super.

The PC version of the original was actually a strong seller worldwide, said Ono. However, it was also "number one in piracy."

Ono actually managed to look on the bright side of the piracy issue, saying that at least the game saw wider spread because of it. However, for the sake of protecting the Street Fighter IV IP, they cannot make it so that Street Fighter is considered "free" in certain areas.

Ono didn't totally rule out a PC release. If they were to find some sort of powerful copy protection solution, the PC version's status could change, he said. He explained that the arcade version already runs on Taito's DirectX-based Type X2 arcade board, so a PC version is already 99% ready.

He did, however, rule out the possibility of a Steam-only release, saying that it would be unfair to those who are unable to buy via Steam.

Please add in Urien and Poison into SSF4! :D

Ono: [I've had] a lot of [requests] from fans...
