Niitsuma wanted 58 characters in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Johnz sent over a translation by CAW Evolution of a recent interview 4Gamer.net did with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, Ryota Niitsuma. There aren't a ton of new details here, but here's a rundown regardless.

• Initially, the plan was to include 58 characters in UMvC3 in order to surpass Marvel vs. Capcom 2, but due to scheduling this was an impossibility. For those of you keeping score at home, UMvC3 will have 50 characters in it, if you include Shuma and Jill as DLC.

• The translator's impression from the article is that the higher-ups wanted this out by the end of the year (for Christmas), and Niitsuma and his team had to change their plans to accommodate this.

• Niitsuma states there will be character reveals at all major events.

Would you have preferred a larger roster for UMvC3 or a release date before Christmas? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
