She-Hulk, Felicia and M.O.D.O.K. non-TAC infinites discovered, opponent must hold forward during - Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

YouTube user スミス ミスミ recently uploaded some interesting Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 footage showing off a few non-TAC infinites. These infinites all utilize basic forward moving loops using She-Hulk, Felicia and M.O.D.O.K.

The peculiar thing about these infinites is that, although they look simple to perform, these can only be hit if the opponent is holding forward. We tested them ourselves and it seems they fall out of the combo as soon as the opponent stops holding the forward input.

Considering these may not be practical in a regular match, it does raise some curiosity. The fact that certain combos can be affected by the opponent holding a direction could potentially lead to some new combo possibilities.

Assassin's Creed Duel - concept artwork for an unmade Ubisoft fighting game

Concept images of an Assassin's Creed themed fighting game were recently discovered in the online portfolio of former Ubisoft employee, Benoit Perreaul. These works were whipped up as fan art and not part of a real game being developed by the company.

This isn't the first time we've seen Assassin's Creed related to fighting games as Ezio Auditore made a guest appearance in Namco's Soul Calibur 5. According to the images below, we can see that Perreaul would have also included other Ubisoft characters as unlockables.

If Perreaul's concept would have came to be, he would have planned for it to hit the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network as a downloadable title.

With the Assassin's Creed franchise's focus on weapon usage and a decent selection of possible playable characters, would this be a game you would be interested in playing? Let us know in the comments below.
