Doc Ock even had his theme song completed for MvC3? Niitsuma confirms that this Spidey villain's development had gone further than previously thought

While we recently ran a story about Niitsuma detailing a bunch of characters that didn't make the cut in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, he actually gave special significance to one certain character who's been confirmed to have been in development before.

This new tweet for Niitsuma gives insight into just how far development actually went with Doctor Octopus, and it's pretty significant.

Should you buy Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PlayStation 4? Maximilian talks netcode, console transition and more in this thoughtful review

Though it was a bit dwarfed by the announcement of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has been ported to PlayStation 4 so that fans of the series can continue to play the game on their next generation consoles.

Maximilian wasted little time downloading and playing UMvC3, and has come out with a review detailing the good and bad of the 2011 title.

The good news: this game only costs $25 and doesn't seem to have any hiccups in its transition to PS4 from older systems. The bad news is that there don't seem to be many upgrades or updates to the game, including it's less than marvelous netcode.

Hyper screen flash appears slower in PlayStation 4 version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3; this video shows comparison with Xbox 360

A user on YouTube that goes by the name of "Crunchy Maggots" has uploaded a video showcasing lag during hypers for the PlayStation 4 version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This creates a longer delay compared to the Xbox 360 version.

Crunchy Maggots confirmed that this hyper lag was present in the PlayStation Vita version of the game. Unfortunately, Crunchy Maggots mentions that he does not have the PlayStation 3 version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

This doesn't appear to be too big of a deal since humans typically react to what's on the screen anyhow. If it does bother you, it's worth mentioning that the Xbox One and PC version of UMvC3 will be coming out March 2017.

The Xbox One (and maybe the PC version?) will likely be more similar to the Xbox 360 version of UMvC3.

The fastest (and saltiest) game of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ever? We take a look back at a funny Marvel moment from 2014

Given the spike in attention for Marvel vs. Capcom and all the intense conversation buzz going around right now, we though it'd be fun to revisit a less serious, but oh so entertaining, moment from UMvC3.

It was July 31st, 2014 and Coach Steve and Flux found themselves in a first to 25 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 $700 money match at The House of Chaos in New York.

Steve had run away with the set, nearing 25 wins with Flux trailing at 11. After a pretty brutal six game win streak filled with taunting play, Steve kicked off the 34th game of the set with a quick grab from his Nova. With salt levels at maximum, Flux would have none of it.

Maximilian has produced a video, (included below) in which he takes a closer look at the situation, pointing out multiple reasons as to why he feels the images are not legitimate.

Despite all this, there's a chance that MvC4 could still be on the way. The brightest glimmer of hope comes from the fact that NeoGAF user Ryce has declared a reveal at PlayStation Experience.

If you're holding out hope that we might see a Marvel vs. Capcom 4 announcement on the horizon, you may want to redirect those thoughts else where.

Ryota Niitsuma, Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, stated that "nothing was happening on that front," in regards to a new entry in the franchise.

Not only that, but he'd been moved to a different division within Capcom.

Although Capcom (and Marvel for that matter) had left the days of the '90s behind them by the time Marvel vs. Capcom 3 came around, that didn't stop them from pushing out some extremely high quality artwork when promoting the game.

The huge roster of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 brought out some truly spectacular art during Capcom's golden age, catch a large part of it in this gallery

After the great success Capcom and Marvel's partnership saw, in arcades in particular, they decided to pull out all the stops and make a game with a roster so huge, most of us at the time couldn't even believe it.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 truly brought together a monstruous roster with all-stars from both Marvel and Capcom's side, along with a bunch of somewhat dubious choices, and even a few original characters to top it all off. The art during this time was pure Capcom nostalgia, and I'm sure anyone who experienced these games at their prime will have strong feelings whenever they see this artstyle.

Here's some amazing pieces from Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes. Make sure to check back later on for further posts on the art of the various collaborations between Marvel and Capcom.
