I accept your apology danfowz1989. I am sorry for the way I posted the message. It was done in a negative tone. Who knows what I was on about that day as well. I will be getting UMvC3 when it comes out and I must say it is a shame that Megaman legends 3 is sitting on the cancel list.

danfowz1989 said on August 14, 2011 at 9:11 a.m.

no worries mate. it seems there is a lot of people on this site that ramble on site. the only reason i got into this game is because i'm a marvel fan, and now i love vs games. seems like capcom knows what there doing right?

Kingtaz74 said on August 26, 2011 at 12:50 a.m.

okay crazy but stick with me here what if we do see a little of megaman in umvc3. we all know frank west is set to be in the game. well in dead rising "frank west game" if you complete the right achivements you can full complete an imitation megaman outfit with megablaster but you cant charge it so not fully megaman. but what if the developers have decided to put some sort of megaman cameo like " you wanted him so bad heres a little bit of him. frank could probably have a hyper same as chris where he uses various guns. well frank uses anything he could get his hands on but what if they finish the hyper with a big megaman blast to the face. i know its a long shot but heres hoping for all the fans that wanna see any of megaman in umvc3. longshot but it would be a cool compramise you could say and a badass hyper.

@ 298

I agree! Words can't describe how gambit would look in 3D.

MrMcDonald said on September 14, 2011 at 1:57 p.m.

Gambit has no right 2B in this game, Gambit has no rite 2B in marvel anymore period. He's only seen when Cyclops calls on him 2make an appearance or when X-23 is ordering him around. And half of U that wanted Venom can't even tell me Venom's name or how he'd B any different than Spidy or Deadpool in this game.

U kno nothing of Marvel

DrewGrimey said on October 2, 2011 at 12:28 a.m.

^lol @308

The #2 and the word "to" would like to have a word with you

U kno nothing of spelling

lol dumb ass

MrMcDonald said on October 2, 2011 at 11:04 p.m.


Wow Ur rite, & I can tell from Ur use of use of punctuation, #, @, and the word "lol" that Ur a master on the difference between abbreviations and spelling. Thanks pal.

[Remember kids, its best 2encourage the feebleminded.]

@308, @309, @310

Shut the fluff up son! Why is everyone so salty over the most piddly worthless things? LET'S ARGUE ABOUT KNOWLEDGE OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR AND BASH PEOPLE BECAUSE WE THINK WE KNOW MORE THAN THEM ABOUT MAHVEL....I feel like no one but me has ever read the site rules -before- posting.

On a more...on-topic note~ These guides are great, can't wait to see what the new characters in UMvC3 bring to the table :)

MrMcDonald said on October 6, 2011 at 12:58 a.m.

@311 who da heck R U! Idc how many times U read the site rules, U hav no rite 2tell me or the "Mr. 2nd-grade-grammar teacher", wat we/ppl can and can't post.

But anyway, most of U on here kno very lil' about marvel, and R still stuck on past marvel chars from MvC2. I ask U 2please read a comic, a database, go 2 borders/barnes & noble or something &help educate urselfs on Marvel. Magneto & Storm aren't hand 2hand fighters, I don't care how great they were in all the vs games. And Cyclops is a great hand 2hand fighter, he's not just a shoto.

Just imagine who U could've been playing in this game and who'd U'd like 2C in the next marvel.

A year ago from today a lost prophet predicted THIS GAME SUCKS is not original it dozen live up to the hype, and is worth anyone's money. But for the hardcore fans who love the original franchise like SF VS XMAN MVS MVC1 THERE'S MORE NEED TO ARGUE WITH NEW COMERS !!!!!!! BEST FIGHTING GAME OF THE YEAR IS MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I SAID IT BACK IN 181,185,187,191,195,203,262,263,268,281,282,284,285

JBADGUY said on December 21, 2011 at 3:28 a.m.

Why dont you guys change the logo for this to Ultimate?

ZBloodZLustZ said on January 9, 2012 at 12:58 p.m.

Idk why people complain about Ken being a Shoto when Vergil plays similar to Dante, a lot of people have projectiles, everyone Punches each other. So what if people have the same thing to any extent. Ken would have different Hypers and properties. I can easily see the three of them taking down the rest of the cast. Esp with Ryu's new found power... Now just waiting to hear in this game: "This Hado, it grants me power. Incredible Power!" lol Evil Ryu for UMVC3 ver.2014 FTW

MadMetalSlayer said on January 18, 2012 at 10:24 a.m.

About time they changed the logo.

UpgradeJ said on January 21, 2012 at 11:26 a.m.

Let us pray that Capcom atleast tries to treat UMVC3 like a modern fighting game. Let us pray that they offer new stages and characters as DLC. Let us pray that they offer these DLC in two ways, individually and packaged. Let us pray that they create new modes for both online play as well as local single/multiplayer. And most importantly let us pray that Capcom no longer sells us an update in the form of a new game.

MacMan369 said on January 23, 2012 at 11:22 a.m.

Who's guide is complete?

Professionalbee said on January 27, 2012 at 7:38 a.m.

It would be great if they could tell the property of each of the special moves, for example captin american's charging star has the ability to go through projectiles...

Also if anyone has an extra 360 and Monitor/TV please bring it to speed up the tournament because we are sharing the store space with P-Lay.

Be sure to talk to Trevon Inso Wickliffe after the tournament and before to let us know what you would like to see as the next tournament.

Here's the Highlights from 2 weeks Saturday!

Like us on facebook page "Team INSO" to stay updated on events and challenges!

"Think about it why can't individuals unify between artist, gamers, designers, musicians, dancers, and all other form of expression and name it one thing? We could start a new world where we could use one name "INSO" (INSOMNIA) and represent ourselves without being in an actual group. Why can't we just network within our inner circle of friends and become something great? Its Insomnia go party, go drink, rave, paint, sing, sketch, or Rock your world because sleep is for the weak. There's a world waiting for us." -Team INSO

Anitec21 said on April 30, 2012 at 4:20 a.m.

This game sucks the worst game ever! Gay marvel I seen tournaments of this crap just spamming same over and over I'm fine with SSFIV And SFXT

@326 Nice opinion to you too.

evilphox said on June 26, 2012 at 4:21 p.m.

Roomie and I ended up making a frame comparison app. Has complete move lists and sorting options (defaults startup vs advantage on block to explore punish situations) It's not perfect but we're planning on trying to get some experimental xfactor frame calculations in there as well which I don't think any apps out there do. Anyway, that's the end of my shameless self plug.

We called it Frame Fighter: UMvC3 and we plan on making other versions for other games eventually once we get everything updated on this one. We made demo also that has 10 chars in it and wouldn't mind feedback.


TheQuietStorm said on August 17, 2012 at 5:08 p.m.

This game really sucks without low, med and high kicks and punches. I am disappointed that Capcom distroyed this series after removing the 6 button layout I struggled to master and got so use to it. This game would of been better if only they didn't favor that lazy ass 3 button layout for people with no skill what so ever I hate Capcom for this betrayal of us old school fans who really gave the first games like xvs the hype it deserved.

I can not play with Jill and Shuma Gorath, I download it for mvsc3 and I can't unlock for the ultimate. I buy the presales version of the first game and I gave them a code but do not work in the ultimate, and the first DLC costumes not working too. excuse my english

datfuzzystuff said on February 25, 2013 at 12:52 p.m.

FYI I found this sweet FGC Clothing Company (pretty sure they are new) http://www.firstattack.com

Just got me a Foot Dive shirt :)

DCarvel said on May 17, 2013 at 8:20 a.m.

The marvel characters I would LOVE to see is: Nightcrawler, Venom/carnage, Bishop(just because), Maybe the Mandarin?,and Luke cage.
This game is great i really hope they put some nice characters in soon though!!!

RedRyu said on August 20, 2013 at 3:36 p.m.

I'm new to UMvC3, I read BT Viscants post about mag/doom/sentinel being noob friendly, but for some reason, I don't think they are. Are there any other teams that can teach me the basics of this game? Also their assists, please.

8589brian said on August 26, 2013 at 2:31 a.m.

The easiest team to start with for me was Nemesis/Ghostrider/Superskrull.

tibur17 said on September 13, 2013 at 1:19 a.m.

where can i download U.MvC3 for free?

inet14 said on September 27, 2013 at 12:10 p.m.

TO CAPCOM IF THEY READ THIS>.Just lettin u know capcom does care about anyone. i like the game too but they made a game paid ppl to test it and still have flaws (stupid one too). come on ppl most of their games dont even run on server. in a nut shell they are too bloody cheap. it cost hundreds of thousands (or more depending), for updates, characters, etc. they could have easily done it right not even the first time but the second one. o gosh man all we r to them is source of income there is NO LOVE for us. (wow not even a server) to everyone else i not hating just relating. most of u understand what i am saying.(EG) streetfighter. what numbur they r on now, shucks I LOST COUNT. LMAO

Link24 said on November 4, 2013 at 6:43 p.m.

This game ia the reason I'm buying a PS3. I find Zero infinite+X Factor+shogenmu very irresistible

Link24 said on November 5, 2013 at 6:06 p.m.

What should my team be? I need zero obviously and I'm best with shoto-clones. Should I do zero, Morrigan, Akuma?

RedRyu said on January 4, 2014 at 9:47 p.m.

Whatever works mate.

8589brian said on April 23, 2014 at 1:04 p.m.

Where next for the capcom vs series? I would have liked them to make a Pocket fighters vs Marvel Superhero Squad spin off game.

Catnip_Her0 said on September 17, 2014 at 10:07 a.m.

MAHVEL HYPE !!! Twitch.tv/catnip_her0 and Hitbox.tv/catnipher0

CockyChris_97 said on November 24, 2014 at 6:31 p.m.

KoryukenMotionHP said on February 23, 2016 at 6:48 p.m.

Why can't I vote on tiers?

nightmaresteam said on April 1, 2016 at 1:50 p.m.

Nice april fools joke. If Megaman had actually been in MVC3 that tier ranking would have been accurate.

RLAAMJR said on December 3, 2016 at 8:47 p.m.

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is back , now available in PS4 and XboxOne and Steam on March 2017. :)
