Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 isn’t just an additional 12 characters and a few new game modes, it’s a chance for Capcom to tweak the mechanics and balance of the original game in such a way that it requires four videos to detail the changes to just the Marvel side of the cast.

Remember a decade ago, when they’d release a fighting game on the console and we’d have to deal with it? Now we’ve got four lengthy videos demonstrating how characters like She-Hulk, Dormammu, Magneto, Hulk and Dr Doom are going to play differently in the Ultimate version of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, due out next week.

I’m not seeing much that will affect my tactical button mashing style very much at all. Your mileage may vary. Flip through the gallery to see how the rest of Marvel’s greatest fared, and hit up Unity to see what changes are coming to Capcom’s brawlers.

  • minor developments re-packaged into a ‘new’ retail product and sold at an exorbitant price? only for them to do the same thing again in a couple of months? really? I did not expect that.

    HAving said that I’ve already pre-ordered it :/

    • It’s been said by Capcom that UMvC3 is indeed the last edition of this game. I’m a little sick of people assuming otherwise.

      • They said the same thing about Super Street Fighter IV, only to release AE (and soon, AE 2012, which I will give you is free for AE owners). People have every right to assume otherwise because prior evidence is there.

        That being said, I’ll be grabbing Ultimate myself. Just as long as there is enough value in Capcom’s updates in order to warrant the price, I’ll be happy to purchase them.
