Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is real
« on: 20 Apr 2010, 01:03 »

No idea how Marvel got the ensemble rights back from Activision, but it's definitely happening, and the embargo on the Capcom event where it was officially announced is supposed to expire in about 8 hours.

Here, have a leaked trailer.

According to the site where I first saw the leak, the confirmed characters are Wolverine, Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and Deadpool for Marvel, and Ryu, Chun-Li, Morrigan, Chris Redfield, and Viewtiful Joe for Capcom. Also, the silhouette second from left behind the Marvel logo really looks like Doctor Doom to me, but I could be imagining it. The MT Framework, for those of you who don't have absurd amounts of esoteric game trivia knowledge, is the Lost Planet/Dead Rising engine, which means this will almost certainly be PS3/360 and possibly PC as well.

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 (???) was also supposedly announced at this event, as well as a confirmation that Okamiden is coming to the US, but those obviously weren't as hyped as MvC3 so I don't have solid video confirmation of that yet.

Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssss

Apparently the producer is the same guy that was behind Tatsunoko vs Capcom. This is a very good thing, because TvC is rad as hell.

Welp, here's the BC:R2 trailer.

Fatshark is at least part of the team that made the first game, but not all of it as there is another studio of ex-GRIN guys kicking around Stockholm doing who knows what. Hopefully they have the guy who did the music on board; I only got through a few levels of BC:R because it was really fucking hard, but it has some kickass music.

Also: the part of the MvC3 trailer that shows RE5-era Chris fighting Hulk makes me really really really hope that Chris has an Ultra where he punches a boulder, because that would be fucking hysterical. I would main a team of 3 Chrises if they did that, I don't care what fucking tier he is.

Embargo's up, so here's what we know:

Final roster will be approximately 30 characters.
Confirmed 3D models on 2D plane, like Street Fighter 4.
Teams are 3 on 3 like MvC2 instead of the 2 on 2 from TvC.
The leaked list of characters was apparently fake (or at least only inferred from the silhouettes behind the logos in the trailer, because Capcom is only confirming the 6 characters in the trailer right now (Wolverine, Iron Man, Hulk, Ryu, Morrigan, and Chris). However, they've also released a bunch of art with more silhouettes, which has led to a bunch of crazy speculation, including some comic characters I've never fucking heard of.

So rumored characters include:

Marvel: Deadpool, Captain America, Black Widow, Super Skrull (?), Mephisto
Capcom: Felicia, Frank West, Dante (or possibly Nero, they look almost identical after all), Seth

Also the bad news: release date is 'Spring 2011', for 360 and PS3. So it's at best a year off.

30 characters seems a little underwhelming. It's not bad by any means, but it's not half as over the top as Marvel feels like it deserves. As long as I can do Doom/Magneto/M. Bison I'll be happy though.

With SSF4 next week and KoF 13 near the end of this year and BlazBlue CS whenever that happens as well as TvC not showing signs of getting old any time soon I think I can wait a year for MvC3.

Considering that they're making full 3D models for all of those characters instead of just sprites, and they're probably going to record VO for them all as well, I think 30 is a completely reasonable size for the roster. It'd be nice if it were as massive as MvC2's roster so they could explore all the really weird shit both companies have.

Mostly I just want Gene from God Hand, especially if one of his Ultras is the Ball Buster.

Other news about already announced games:

Dead Rising 2 has two-player online co-op in the story mode in addition to previously announced multiplayer modes. Both players play as Chuck Greene, and the game's cutscenes do not account for there being two people. Only the host's storyline progress is saved, but the visiting player keeps all the PP he earned in the game.

Case Zero is a downloadable prologue for DR2 that bridges the gap between the two games. You still play as Chuck, and his daughter is somehow involved. Since she's not mentioned in any of the material about DR2 itself, I'm guessing something happens to her which serves as Chuck's primary motivation for the events in the main game.

DR2 finally has a release date: August 31st. Presumably Case Zero will come out slightly before then, but I don't think Capcom said specifically.

Lost Planet 2 will have more player skins that unlock based on your save files of other Capcom games.

I wouldn't be surprised. People are assuming that the Activision-Marvel deal expired at the beginning of this year, which would explain why it took Capcom so long to officially announce it.

I think that 3d models should be a lot quicker than 60fps sprites in glorious HD. After you've got the basic model down it's all modifying it for the animations, but with sprites there's still a lot more creating to do.I think a lot more people have 3d modelling skills than sprite skills these days.

Ryu, Chun Li and Morrigan are characters you will never get away from in vs games. It's just one of those constants of the universe. I really hope they cram Alex in there too though.

I have a more serious wish list for a team that would suit me and it's Kitty Pryde, Alex and Guile. I'm not really holding out too much hope for either Guile or Kitty though.

Oh, look, it's Felicia. Shocking.

Anyway, as much as I dislike the character, I'm sorta curious as to what they're going to leave out with Dante, since he's a protagonist from a fighter-esque game in which it is considered perfectly okay to just wreck everyone's shit with stupidly overpowered crap. He's displayed a pretty wide number of abilities throughout the series, particularly in DMC3 when they introduced shit like spawning a clone etc. Still, when you pare his moveset down to the most basic stuff he's always displayed over the years, you still end up with shit like stupidly long reach via his sword, high speed and the ability to juggle at nearly will via a hail of gunfire, so I guess they'll have stuff to work with regardless.

Crap, all I can think of now was how Cable used his guns in the second one.  I don't want another Cable.

Also I like Felicia, she goes nice with my other fast moving characters.

I don't really mean to hate on Felicia. It's just that a Felicia, Deadpool and Dante confirmation kinda falls under the category of "Tell me something I don't know."

And yeah, my fears about Dante can be summed up as "Fast Cable with obnoxious melee reach." A real priority monster.

I have no strong feelings about either She Hulk or Zero. The level 3 Hyper where She Hulk throws a car is pretty funny though.

Supposedly there are more announcements coming later this week, but they didn't clarify whether it would be more characters or other stuff like modes or costumes or whatever. Up until now they always revealed characters in groups of 4, though.

Fake, Shuma-Gorath and Venom are confirmed out and Spider-Woman is not a Spiderman character.

Besides which, there's a more fundamental issue of if that diagram came from Capcom, why wouldn't they have the art for the unconfirmed characters?

E: That being said the Capcom side of that graph is probably mostly accurate. We know there's gonna be a Street Fighter villain which probably means M.Bison unless they put in Akuma or Seth, and C. Viper's and Frank West's silhouettes have been in trailers in the past (West's was in the very first trailer, I think). Haggar was (possibly intentionally) leaked from a Capcom Halloween photodump, although maybe that was just a fakeout who knows. Megaman is obvious, the only characters I think are real stretches are Red Arremer and Strider, because Strider hasn't been in a game in forever and nobody knows who the fuck Red Arremer is. The Marvel side is pretty much all guesswork as far as I can tell. We more or less know Storm is in, but I'm highly skeptical of just about all the other ones there.

That being said, if that list is accurate I'm totally rolling Wesker/Amaterasu/Arthur.

Yes, they are. None of the remaining characters on that list would persuade me to change from them though, is what I meant.

Well... maybe Frank West if they got his original voice actor back and his moveset was cooler than in TvC.

Double posting because there is some BREAKING NEWS

Gamestop leak confirms MvC3 will have DLC characters. The first two are Jill and Shuma-Gorath, and will be included with the Collector's Edition. Indirectly disproves that scanned roster, although I guess the Niitsuma quote about shapeshifting characters being harder to do in polygonal model wasn't as hard-and-fast as I thought. Guessing Jill will be probably completely different from her MvC2 incarnation because they'll probably use the RE5 design to fit in with Wesker and Chris.

C. Viper
Hsien-ko
Jill (DLC)
Chris
Wesker
Dante
Trish
Arthur
Felicia
Morrigan
Viewtiful Joe
Tron Bonne
Mike Haggar
Akuma (unlock)
Zero

So here's why I'm not 100% buying this list:

1) Niitsuma more or less said outright that some form of Mega Man would be in the game. He's the single most important Capcom character, leaving him off the roster would be like leaving out Spiderman or Wolverine for Marvel. It just makes no sense.

2) Frank West was a silhouette in the very first trailer for the game. Granted, Seth Killian said that not every silhouette ended up making it into the game, but Frank West was already in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and is one of the most popular characters Capcom's introduced in the last 10 years since MvC2 came out. Tweaking him to fit MvC3 would take a lot less effort than building (for example) Spencer or Arthur from scratch.

3) Niitsuma also said more or less outright that there would be no more Darkstalkers characters beyond Felicia and Morrigan. He also heavily implied there would be no more 'shoto' characters besides Ryu because they wanted to make every character play differently, which makes Akuma a puzzling addition.

It's also several characters short of the 42 number that has been the rumor for months, even if you include the two DLC characters that will be hitting a full month after the game releases. I don't know anything about the Marvel side so I can't speak about its accuracy. Mostly I'm just hoping it's fake because I really want Frank West and Strider to be in the game.

Oh, and a little detail I forgot to mention: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be released on February 15th, 2011.

I think it would be really cool to have Hsien-ko, but where's my J. Talbain Capcom?

Double posting because there is some BREAKING NEWS

Gamestop leak confirms MvC3 will have DLC characters. The first two are Jill and Shuma-Gorath, and will be included with the Collector's Edition. Indirectly disproves that scanned roster, although I guess the Niitsuma quote about shapeshifting characters being harder to do in polygonal model wasn't as hard-and-fast as I thought. Guessing Jill will be probably completely different from her MvC2 incarnation because they'll probably use the RE5 design to fit in with Wesker and Chris.

Nah, I'm still going with the scanned roster and just assuming Red Arremer got replaced with Jill sometime between then and now.

I already explained why the scanned roster was bullshit, and it's even more bullshit now that we know Jill is in.

Also, in the quote where Niitsuma seemed to deconfirm any more Darkstalkers beyond the first two, he mentioned that Talbain was his next choice, but they knew that because Darkstalkers is largely unknown in the West that they couldn't use too much of the roster space on characters from that series.

Yes. You said it was bullshit because two characters were on it that are "not going to be in it"- one of whom is now confirmed to be in it, the other being one of Marvel's most well known villains.

I don't place much stock in your argument.

Female characters are where it's at in Japan so us Talbain players are boned.
