Did Vergil just perform a Hyper Combo with less than a full bar of meter? Tyrant reveals apparent visual bug in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

While playing Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 recently UM|Tyrant found that he could actually perform Vergil's Hyper Combo without technically having a full bar of meter.


In UMvC3 when a character completes a meter, the meter itself at the bottom of the screen clicks up to a higher number and changes color. In Tyrant's case, the number is still very clearly at a blue "0" when the Hyper Combo comes out.

Tyrant took a video of the happening to share with the rest of us so we could help try to make sense of it:

It may be that there's a discrepancy between when a meter is actually full and when the visual cue happens. This could possibly be unique to the new PlayStation 4 port of the game, seeing as we've never seen it before.

It doesn't seem to be game breaking, but is still something that should probably be fixed. Have you ever seen this before? If you can offer any further information, please enlighten us in the comments section below.
