After a long wait for DLC characters to be released for MvC3, rumors have now emerged that there will be a Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 released later this year. With a Fighting game panel at Comic-Con next week we should be getting some solid information soon.
So far, this is the word thats spreading like wild fire:
The title will be a re-release similar to Super Street Fighter IV, which many fighting game fans will remember was budget priced at $39.99, and came with heaping handful of new characters exclusive to that version. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will see a similar release later this year, and with the character count jumping from 38 (including DLC fighters Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath) to 50, there are at least a dozen reasons to be excited.
While our sources have been mum on the new characters expected to make an appearance, the inclusion of Frank West and Doctor Octopus files hidden on the original Marvel vs. Capcom 3 game disc should mean the appearance of those two characters is almost a given. We’ll let the speculation run wild as to the other ten characters, but we’d love to see the debut of the oft-rumored Phoenix Wright (as a fully playable character) and return of Mega Man, as well as the father/son tandem of Cable and Cyclops.
So for now, we will just have to wait for Capcom’s “Big Announcement” at Comic Con to confirm anything.
