Killian & Svensson Q&A session on uStream, transcript Seth Killian and Christian Svensson took some questions from fans today via Capcom-Unity. Both guys commented on the company's major fighting games right now, from SSF4 Arcade Edition to Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

• Seth said that Mega Man, Strider and Phoenix Wright — among others, are very high on the list of DLC fan requests for Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

• He advised getting out of your comfort zone and going to tournaments as a way to improve. He also said watching your matches is a good way to spot things you can work on.

• MvC3 is intentionally zany and they want to see how things go before patching it for balance issues — if needed. They want to see how things play out after EVO as well — this is going to a wait and see thing.

• Christian Svensson said he's never seen any kind of structured tier list from Capcom. Not like what the community has done, there's never any intention to make a character awesome or suck.

• There is a lot of internal testing and so forth, along with tracking of how well the characters are doing overall, though.

• Seth used Fei Long as an example of how the characters change in power. He was considered weak in vanilla SF4, and the changes from SSF4 to Arcade Edition weren't hardcore, but he's now went to the top of the tier list in most Arcade Edition rankings floating around.

• Capcom is aware that people want spectator mode for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and it's high up there for something they're exploring.

• Pocket Fighter didn't pass the test to be a PSP game, but it worked out to be a PSone Classic on the PS3, so it won't be hitting the PSP for now.

• Svensson said he's pretty sure the MvC3 orders from the Capcom Store have already shipped out, but he'd have to check with the store manager.

• Christian also said the Nintendo X Capcom is unlikely to happen.

• The MvC3 select screen can be altered if they wish to add more characters.
