Comic-Con: ‘Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3′ Confirmed, Disc-Based Only

22 Jul, 2011

It was rumor for only a day or so. Capcom confirmed the existence of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 yesterday at Comic Con, although with a stat sheet of the tweaks and updates players can expect from the reissue. Unfortunately in terms of the gameplay nitty-gritty, said stat sheet includes little else beyond a generic mention of “newly re-balanced gameplay”, but its something to keep track of for now. Street Fighter IV‘s Spectator Mode is also being integrated into the mix, although again, details are sparse. At least we have the dozen new additions to the roster confirmed in one chunk, the full list of which you can find after the jump.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Confirmed Roster Additions

Capcom:
Firebrand
Strider Hiryu
Phoenix Wright
Vergil
Nemesis
Frank West

Marvel:
Hawkeye
Ghost Rider
Dr Strange
Iron Fist
Rocket Racoon
Nova

We also got a second update on the fighter today, as Capcom Producer Ryota Niitsuma confirmed in an interview with Siliconera that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be a disc-based release only. Previous updated versions of Capcom fighters came in both disc and DLC forms at slightly differing costs. Ultimate, on the other hand, will have a singular release at $40. No release date has been confirmed.

“Right now, we’re only thinking about releasing a disc version,” Niitsuma clarified. “Given the development schedule, there wasn’t enough time to work out all of the details to release it as downloadable content, as well. There is so much data in the game it was easier to go this route.”

    Oh, this isn’t going to go over well. With the cancellation of two Mega Man titles in one year, releasing yet another SFIV game and now this, yeah the fan base isn’t happy.

    Now to watch the fallout of their decisions.

    I think it’s really shady, but hey… capcom is a lot like apple in some regards. They can rebrand and put out whatever crap they want and people will buy it and not complain. I don’t know how they get away releasing eleven thousand versions of the same game and having people buy each and every one of them… but hey, that’s how it is lol
