Niitsuma cites contract issues for lack of updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, doesn't have any EVO related projects currently A few people in the community wondered why Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hasn't received as many updates as Street Fighter X Tekken, and Capcom's Ryota Niitsuma stepped in to clarify what was going on behind the scenes and talk about if he plans on attending EVO 2013.

HolaSensitive: I'm very upset that you didn't update Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but Street Fighter X Tekken has been updated like 10 times. I'm very sad Mr Niitsuma. Who decides this?

Niitsuma: I am truly sorry. I am sorry, but I can't explain it all here. Due to various contract issues we can't do updates the way SFxT does.

Dios_X_Reloaded: Come to Evo 2013 Niitsuma!

Niitsuma: I don't have any projects related to EVO for now, so I would have to go there on my own dime.

The community has made a fairly big push lately to get additional updates to UMvC3, and both Marvel and Capcom have acknowledged our efforts and responded to them. Capcom has stated on many occasions that there's nothing in the works at this time in regards to UMvC3, so we'll have to wait and see if they can work out a new deal with Marvel in the future.
