Capcom-Unity is hosting a Live Ask Capcom session today on TwitchTV. Company vice president, Christian Svensson, and Unity's GregaMan, will be on hand to take questions from fans about the games they working on and other subjects.

Notes from the stream


• There are no new characters planned to be implemented for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. More costumes and other things are possible, but not currently in the works.

• The Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 team has moved on to new stuff, along with Ryota Niitsuma, the title's producer.

• Sven was asked about if it would be another 10-15 years before the next Marvel vs. Capcom game, e.g. MvC4. He said they were happy with UMvC3, but it's probably time to chill with that franchise for awhile.

• The $500,000 for Street Fighter's 25th anniversary is still going to be invested, but the plans haven't all been revealed yet — which includes upcoming events.

• The team that made Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition is working on different things at the moment.

• Sven said that Yoshinori Ono is as, "healthy as a horse," when he last saw him in Rome.

• When asked about the lifespan of Street Fighter X Tekken, if he's worried about it, Sven said that he's not, "for reasons that will become more clear over time."
