More Marvel vs. Capcom 3 notes from PAX West stream A few more items of interest came up on the Capcom-Unity PAX West stream this afternoon concerning Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Here's a bulleted recap.

• A strong implication was given that there will be a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Fight Club in Chicago some time this month.

• Seth Killian said that the next cinematic for the game, titled Episode 2, features some amazing stuff, including new characters and will also have the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier from the Marvel Universe.

• In the current build, the X-Factor system offers a 40% damage bonus.

• Killian mentioned again that X-Men fans should be happy with Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Later on, and possibly unrelated, he added that there will be more females added to the Marvel side.

• Dante has around 40 special moves at the moment. The various button strengths make his attacks do different things, instead of slightly changing the properties, as is typical in Capcom fighters.

• There are configurable control schemes in MvC3. You can make the layout like it was in Marvel vs. Capcom 2, but it doesn't change the three attack buttons + launcher/exchange button, plus two assists format.

• Ruby Heart, of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 fame, was apparently a rejected Darkstalkers design.

Thanks to Phoenix and Megadautilus for the heads up.
