Rumors have been swirling for months now about a Super MvC3, a rumor started by Lupinko of “Leak the roster to every fighting game before they are announced” fame. Then the rumor turned into Ultimate MvC3 more recently. THEN Capcom started trolling about “Special things will be happening at Comic-Con”. Finally, three days before Comic-Con I woke up to “leaked” Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 footage from none other than Capcom. That’s not really a leak though…. But do you know what is a leak? When Capcom accidentally put up the entire character roster by mistake and had to take it offline a few minutes later.
They have officially released a boat load of details, screenshots, videos, and even a release date and pricing.
Hit the jump to see what all the fuss is about. And guess who has the entire leaked roster for you? Yes, yes I do.
First off let me get this out of the way… PHOENIX WRIGHT IS IN THE GAME!!! WOOHOOO!!!!!
And here is Capcom’s official press release
Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, and Marvel Entertainment today announced that Ultimate Marvel® vs. Capcom® 3 is in development for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will take the epic battle to all new heights with new iconic characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes, a refined fighting system, eight new stages and new modes when it releases this November for the low MSRP of $39.99.
The highly acclaimed fighting game adds 12 new legends to the robust Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster, bringing the total overall roster of characters up to 50. The first new characters revealed for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 include much-requested Capcom character Strider who slashes his way into the fray along with Ghost ‘n Goblins™ villain Firebrand. On the Marvel side, Ghost Rider will finally exercise his vengeance and Hawkeye will pick apart foes. More characters will be revealed in the coming months.
In addition to characters, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 features a host of enhancements and new features to improve the game’s balance and online functionality. One of the biggest additions to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is the fan-requested Spectator Mode, which allows fighters to watch live online matches together. With multiple improvements and 12 new characters, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 brings home the ultimate fighting experience for newcomers and pros alike.
So right off the bat we know there will be a version for both home consoles (duh), eight new stages and some new modes (because Event mode and Shadow Battles weren’t really doing much for fans honestly), twelve new chara….. NEW CHARACTERS!!! FUCK YEAH!!! Sorry… twelve new characters including Strid…. STRIDER!! FUCK YEAH!!! Sorry… Ghostrider, Hawkeye, and Firebrand.
Also, finally, we will be able to spectate online matches.
