Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (Vita) Gameplay: Your Wallet Now Has A Hole Punched In It…

So, how does Capcom’s ridiculously awesome (and near seizure-inducing) fighting game extravaganza look on the PlayStation Vita?  Outstanding, I say (go take a look for yourself if you haven’t already). You can almost feel that wallet in your pocket or purse get lighter with each hit and in fact, if you’re watching this gameplay footage outside, don’t be surprised if you feel dizzy, pass out and wake up in an alley somewhere with yes, your wallet (and phone) gone missing. Or maybe you DID take a wrong turn while walking from the subway and and watching this trailer only to get conked on the head and robbed blind by a pack of unruly street urchins. Which means you really NEED a Vita and a copy of UMvC3 so you can learn some decent fighting moves for the next time you get distracted like that…

Review: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Platform: Xbox 360 (also on PlayStation 3)

Developer: Capcom

# of Players 1 – 2 (Online 2 –  Eight)

ESRB Rating: T (Teen)

Official Site

Score: A-

Featuring a dozen new characters, eight new stages and  a number of excellent balancing fixes, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 makes one of the year’s best fighters even better. Capcom’s creatively insane development team has pulled out all the stops here and yes, this one’s a must-buy even if you’ve already sunk time into mastering the original. Although this super-enhanced update is as good as it gets, the exclusion of he original’s DLC characters is a tiny bit of a cheap move that may disappoint some hardcore players. That and a few other missing features that would have made this deal even better keep the game from a perfect score. However, warts aside, there’s more than enough here for fighting fanatics of any skill level to get their thrills in offline or online play. Continue reading

Capcom’s NYCC Plans: Frights, Fights and… Football?

Since I’m a bit busy today (actually I’m working on a ton of stuff before the convention crush), I’ll be too lazy and just run the entire release below the jump. Dragon’s Dogma, Asura’s Wrath and the Resident Evil titles are all on my list of things to play, but I’ll also try out the fighters even though I’m terrible at them. And yes, if you’re bad at fighters at the Capcom booth, you’re pretty much getting beat up on screen and off. Maybe my press barge will get me some slack cut. I’m definitely staying away from that football event, but it should be amusing to watch (I hope no one gets hurt making an ass out of themselves for a prize, but hey – you can’t stop a raging fan from doing his or her thing for swag!)

TGS 2011: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom Trailers/Reversible Cover Art

Capcom is really going all out to give MvC3 fans the best version of the game outside the arcades. There's even a reversible cover set for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions with voting taking place on the Capcom Unity blog so fans can let their voices be heard on which they think is the better cover. I'm betting most go for the Japanese cover art more because they think Japanese-designed game covers are best (which isn't always the case). Check out the three trailers above and below the jump to see what all the fuss is about.Read more »
