Niitsuma cites contract issues for lack of updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, doesn't have any EVO related projects currently

Niitsuma cites contract issues for lack of updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, doesn't have any EVO related projects currently A few people in the community wondered why Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hasn't received as many updates as Street Fighter X Tekken, and Capcom's Ryota Niitsuma stepped in to clarify what was going on behind the scenes and talk about if he plans on attending EVO 2013.

HolaSensitive: I'm very upset that you didn't update Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but Street Fighter X Tekken has been updated like 10 times. I'm very sad Mr Niitsuma. Who decides this?

Niitsuma: I am truly sorry. I am sorry, but I can't explain it all here. Due to various contract issues we can't do updates the way SFxT does.

Dios_X_Reloaded: Come to Evo 2013 Niitsuma!

Niitsuma: I don't have any projects related to EVO for now, so I would have to go there on my own dime.

The community has made a fairly big push lately to get additional updates to UMvC3, and both Marvel and Capcom have acknowledged our efforts and responded to them. Capcom has stated on many occasions that there's nothing in the works at this time in regards to UMvC3, so we'll have to wait and see if they can work out a new deal with Marvel in the future.

EVO 2013's Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012 tourneys will be held on PS3, training stage used to reduce any slowdown

EVO 2013's Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012 tourneys will be held on PS3, training stage used to reduce any slowdown Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the slowdown on Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the PlayStation 3.

Evolution's Mr. Wizard, jumped on Twitter to note that it's too late to switch consoles for this year's tournament. So to help reduce any potential problems, both Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 will be ran on the training stage.

Evo is on PS3. To reduce any issues, AE and UMvC3 matches will be played on training stage. Its too late in the game to switch consoles.

The slowdown is a combination of overheating ps3s along with using vertical sync on the ps3. Not a good choice by Capcom.
