Mega Man, God Hand's Gene were in final Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character pool Gene from God Hand and Mega Man were in the final character pool for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but they didn't make the final cut, Capcom's Christian Svensson explained on a video chat at Comic-Con. He talked about all sorts of other details, and a transcript of the notable stuff is below.


There's more after the jump as well.
• Gene from God Hand was in very close consideration for UMvC3's roster. They had more characters in the final pool than they could put in the game, and Gene happened to be in that category. Mega Man was in the final pool of characters too.

• Capcom is not prepared to talk about DLC for UMvC3 right now. Sven said DLC is a part of their business, but that doesn't mean character DLC has to be.

• Svensson said Mega Man is absolutely not dead and continues to be a very important brand for them.

• The net code in UMvC3 is its own thing, it's a different beast than anything Capcom has used in their other games.
• UMvC3 costumes won't have alternative colors, like in SF4, the focus is instead on changing the geometry around.

• Cyclops wasn't a consideration for UMvC3, and Venom was never an option for characters they could choose from Marvel's roster. In the case of Cyclops, they already have a ton of X-Men in the game, so they didn't want to add yet another one.

• Having a balance of race or sex wasn't a discussion for UMvC3's roster.

• The following statement was very up in the air: If you didn't buy Jill/Shuma in vanilla MvC3, they won't be selectable in UMvC3 unless you purchase them. Again, this is not 100% and may change. Svensson was a bit out of the loop on this, so he said take this info with a huge grain of salt.

• Capcom will talk about the DLC for SF3 3s Online Edition after it's released, around August 23/24, 2011.

• About the Darkstalkers "announcement" it's just Ono trying to get the game made, he wasn't trolling or trying to mislead. Svensson called the sites that posted the Darkstalkers is being remade story "bad reporting," Ono just wants to stir up interest so he can get the game in development.

• More Fight Clubs will happen in the future.

• Gambit isn't being ignored for UMvC3, but he's not in the game.

• Poison's gender is supposed to be ambiguous.
