It'd be pretty nice if the Marvel roster included Ms Marvel, Jane Foster Thor and Odinson (maybe with Thor Odinson as DLC), Miles Morales, both Captains America, and some version of Warlock.

For the Capcom side, just give me Ammy again and I'll be happy.

On the Capcom side, I'm hoping we get some Monster Hunter love this time. Gimme a duo or trio* of Palicos as a fighter, and give 'em alternate costumes so I can have a group of bipedal kitties dressed like Avengers or Street Fighters or whatever.

* I'm willing to settle for one if two or three are too much trouble. A Captain Amewrica or Meowty Thor or Iron Nyan solo would still be great.

All I want is Jedah (Never gonna happen), and Jon Talbain from Capcom. I have so many wants from Marvel, but I've wanted to see Talbain and Jedah get some love for the longest. Jedah won't come because well. It's just insane to think he could.

after Saki showed up in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, it's hard for me to think that any character is too obscure to have a chance

Oh Jedah isn't obscure. Jedah is just nuts and would need censored in this day and age.

Yeah, ESRB is stricter on blood and gore in 3D games (i.e. 'realistic' games), so unless it was dialed back, stylized, or palette swapped, Jedah's style of weaponizing his own blood would almost certainly bump the game from a T to an M.

That was blood? I just thought it was, like, monster goo. Especially since he turns it into weapons and also it glows purple.

Also,
I didn't realize MVC3 was on PS4 as well, injust thought this was a thread for 4. My heart over swells with joy!

According to the MvC twitter, we'll get to see two more characters tonight as ESPN2 reairs the Capcom Cup.

I picked up the PS4 UMvC3 this morning. A few notes for the curious:
  • It is Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in its entirety. There's that Heralds of Galactus mode and gallery and everything, this isn't some rinky "arcade mode" port.
  • That also means no characters have to be "unlocked".
  • All of the DLC is included, which means you may play as Shuma Gorath and Creepy Jill. This also includes all the DLC costumes, so Wannabe Cable is on the table.
  • However, we're still "missing" Magneto's alt. This is why I never trust a Spaniard.
  • Everything seems to play just fine. I haven't noticed any weird port-problems or jankiness.
  • You are still encouraged to choose a team of Thor, Amaterasu, and Dormammu and shout, "Here comes the God Squad!" at the start of every round.

So MvCI isn't going to have assists, apparently. Instead, you can switch characters more easily (even in mid-air combos) so the idea is that people will find character combination-specific combos. Then factor in the Stone powers too and there's a lot of flexibility there. This is a pretty big change!

Especially since you could do so many neat gameplay/visual things with her.

it would be great if there were special moves involving the voice actor hollering EMBIGGEN!

they could also do something truly preposterous with Lunella and Devil Dinosaur.

It's red in the arcade game and Japanese PSone game. And the PSP game. And the PSN/XBLA Darstalkers Resurrection. And the other rereleases we didn't get. And presumably the Project X-Zone games as well.

Yeah, they probably would go purple. That's what they did with Frank West's zombies' occasional blood in UMvC3.

This entry not having assists is a game changer. Like, I might actually care about it competitively. Daaang.

I think it's really interesting. I've never liked Marvel games, but I might check this one out...maybe. I dunno. SFV is still bae, though

I know! Kamala's special moves and finishers write themselves. And as for Thor, she started out with Macross Mjolnir, but the latest issues give her even more gameplay potential.

...oshit I forgot what if Riri Williams is an alternate Iron Man

Riri I reckon is too new a character to go in. Kamala has been around a couple years now.

I hope Capcom resurrected Data East and contracted them as the secret dev for this game. The world could use another one of these:

Speaking of Maximilian, he reports that MvCI is being developed internally at Capcom; this is the first time a fighter has been developed entirely in-house in a very long time (SF4 - SFV and SFxT were handled by Dimps, with TvC and MvC3/UMvC3 being developed by Eighting). MvC3 producer Ryota Niitsuma is seemingly not attached, either. Capcom USA's Mike Evans is serving in that role.

Intrigue!

Unsurprising additions in Morrigan and Captain America, but they were destined to be in, so I'm happy they got it out of the way quickly. Cap's got a new design, too.



Edit - X can equip his X1 armor!

I guess I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing? Nearly all of those were good to great, SFxT's DLC shenanigans and SF5's we'll-finish-the-game-later approaches aside.

I used to think of Capcom as this entity that would always be around, but the handling of SF5--the idea that Capcom had to get outside subsidies to make a Street Fighter game to fund development...it was unthinkable.

This should be a slam dunk, on the other hand. I guess SFV honestly was nichier than I though it would be. Everyone will play MvCI.

Why the hell are they not calling it 4? What a stupid name.

It's a little hard for me to get excited about X being on the roster. Even though I know this ain't just Zero wearing X's model this time, well, X being technically "playable" in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (if you pretend he was actually good with the Z-Saber in X6 and stole Zero's voice box) has a screwy effect on the brain and all. Like how I saw Ms. Marvel set herself on fire and thought "Oh, I guess she'll be Phoenix's similar but different replacement."

I promise, I'll be more a lot more excited about Infinite if/when they announce a Spider-Man baddie or Power Stone fighter for the roster.
