Rumor: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works Multiple readers wrote in today about a rumor that surfaced claiming that an update to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is in the works, adding the Ultimate prefix. Details are pretty scare, and there's no source named for the rumors, but this news has had people buzzing so far. Here's a clip from the site that posted the rumor.

The title will be a re-release similar to Super Street Fighter IV, which many fighting game fans will remember was budget priced at $39.99, and came with heaping handful of new characters exclusive to that version. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will see a similar release later this year, and with the character count jumping from 38 (including DLC fighters Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath) to 50, there are at least a dozen reasons to be excited.

While our sources have been mum on the new characters expected to make an appearance, the inclusion of Frank West and Doctor Octopus files hidden on the original Marvel vs. Capcom 3 game disc should mean the appearance of those two characters is almost a given. We’ll let the speculation run wild as to the other ten characters, but we’d love to see the debut of the oft-rumored Phoenix Wright (as a fully playable character) and return of Mega Man, as well as the father/son tandem of Cable and Cyclops.

These are details that most active community members could have guessed at — or made up — so take this as you will. It has been confirmed that there are more plans for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that will be revealed at Comic-Con, so in just under a week's time we'll know a lot more. Until then, expect lots of speculation.
