Sven: There won't be a flood of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character reveals Capcom mentioned recently that they would not have a flurry of character reveals for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, instead fans will see a slow, deliberate trickle of information until the game is released in mid-February.


Company V.P., Christian Svensson also fielded a number of other questions recently, here's the skinny.

At the rate the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character reveals are coming, we're either looking at a fairly small roster or there will be a mass reveal/more frequent reveals up until the release date. Can someone give a statement concerning said matter? — Greg

Svensson: It'll be a slow, deliberate trickle... all the way through launch.

You said there's, "maybe something else somewhere," in regards to another fighting game project. Ryota Niitsuma said "it would be a waste to develop only one Wii fighter for the TvC stick," and you added that there are an undisclosed number of Wii projects in development, is it possible there's another fighting game project on the Wii coming from Capcom or 8ing?

Svensson: Not a chance that I'm commenting on this the way you're asking. :-X

I will say, we have recently released several virtual console arcade titles for Wii. We'll see what else the future holds later.

I'd like to know if its legal to host tournaments with a fee to enter for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Super Street Fighter 4? I'm thinking of opening a shop in the summer for competitive gaming.

Svensson: Asking questions of a legal variety is a very slippery slope.

I'm not going to tell you, "this is fine, you're in the clear." I'm also not going to tell you how little value there would be in actually policing this at the scale you're talking about.

I will say the major gaming leagues have been after us for ages to engage with them on Street Fighter 4/Super Street Fighter 4 and future titles. In the past, one big one decided to go off and set up tournaments and solicit sponsors for said tournaments without our approval. I will say that they will not be doing so in the future.

The end user license agreement (EULA) within every package of the game spells out the rights you're granted by Capcom. Anything not listed there should be deemed as not conferred to the, "letter of the law."

A Prayer to God: Please release a Street Fighter game for the Wii.

Svensson: Noted.

Will SSFIV ever going to make it to the Xbox 360's Games on Demand service? — Jesse

Svensson: Yes, but timing is a bit unknown. Should have more news in the next few weeks.
