DamnLag - Sorry, folks. It looks like the dreaming and excitement will soon be coming to an end. A recent review from UK magazing Games TM states that the final roster is 36 characters.
one thing thts puzzling me is, why the hell not give the fans wut they want, ghost rider , phoenix wright, megaman, etc, i mean they said the game was made due to fans demand so give em wut they want dammit
At the same time it is Capcom the same people we have asked for a Monster Hunter version on PS3 and yet we are left empty handed. They will give fans what they want, but it is only a select few and sometimes not at all.
im mad as hell they didnt put jin in here. he was the only one i could really use to combat my friends wolverine spam. oh well... this and mortal kombat is gonna take care of my multiplat games for the year since sony wanna be rapin erbody' up in hur.
Lociefer All the fan stuff is coming in DLC. Its Scamcom after all.
Depends who are you calling fans . There are fans of the game who dont care about the comics , and there are those that do but stopped reading a while ago , and there are those that still read them . Some of the criticized Marvel characters do have fans . Again It' obvious Marvel and capcom , well at least Marvel is prioritizing putting in characters they feel relevant in current comics or are trying to push .
Instead of a possible awesome character they gave us all Shehulk as if the original Hulk weren't enough. lol
"why the hell not give the fans wut they want, ghost rider , phoenix wright" Last time I checked, Phoenix Wright doesn't attack anyone nor does he use weapons. What is he going to do? Yell "objection" to damage enemies?
and arthur just throws his spear but they made it work, they could fit him in
If Nintendo can give Caption Falcon a moveset for SSB, Capcom can give Phoenix Wright a moveset for MvC. It's called being creative, more company's need to learn how to do it.
36 I feel is a good amount. But as always we all would just want "1 more".
I still feel like the Marvel side is really lame
i know right, wheres the Punisher? instead we get she-hulk LOL and the capcom side is kinda lame too i would have traded Chris for Leon no Samokoske Akechi? no Virgil from DMC3? WTF capcom
We got Dante no need for Virgil. They need to just do one character from each Marvel and Capcom game each insteading of wasting 2-3 character slots on side characters like Trisha from DMC. Then they could have had some nice characters like Megaman, Silver Surfer,and even the main character from Monster Hunter all with unique attacks
@killcycle unless you played DMC and understand the game don't mention which characters should or shouldn't be in, hence why i don't bring up SF i don't know the characters so i've no right to say who should be in. also it trish not trisha
@killcycle you dont know DMC kudos , at tony-red-grave virgil and dante both play key rolls in dmc1,2 & 3 lets forget dmc2 never happened to cut it short virgil is date's twin brother, his rival his liquid snake to solid snake his wesker to chris his shadow to sonic his luigi to mario they are basicly the same but diffrent fighting style verigil is more sword base and dante use more his guns get it?
@pola exactly why vergil>trish in MvC3 he's dantes polar opposite story and gameplay wise. where dante hits hard vergils fast dante uses guns vergil has those phantom swords. dante has the bigger more powerful rebellion, or sparda, vergil has the smaller quicker yamato. that aside vergil uses a different fighting style, quick draw i think it was, MMA and well the only time there moves cross is when vergill uses yamato/force edge dual weild. i'm positive in MvC he'd be a great addition especially with his darkslayer style and, if it were added, his NeloAngelo DT. in fact DMC chars, even nero, seem to be easy to add to fighting games with their style. i'd agrue DMC2 but thats neithr here nor there
Yeah, I mean Capcom only has so much to work with so even if they didn't want to, they'd end up with several good characters just to fill the slots. With Marvel they just dun goofed. I don't like a majority of those characters, and I'm sure they'll add the good ones as ripoff DLC.
Possibly no Mega Man? Wow... that's a pretty big "fuck you" from Capcom to the fans if it ends up being true...
Capcom reserves it for SUPER MARVEL Vs CAPCOM 3. :) They are second worst publisher/developer right next Activition when it comes to DLC, add on and expansion. GREEDY MF!!
Im interested in playing with Dante and Ameratsu. Sorry Marvel.
try Dante,okami, and viewtiful joe for that dev in common feel :u if your feeling badass dante deadpool and ameratsu
So this would possibly mean that DLC characters will be inbound throughout the year? Either way I already have an idea of who'd I'd want to main and have on my team.
Day one for me this game looks so good.
Capcom is asking me not to buy the game because megaman isnt in it. f1ck this.
Cyclops is my favorite Marvel character, and so without him, this makes the game a rental, and not a buy for myself.
right there with you wedgie. Cyclops is fucking awesome and without him this game means nothing to me. Thanks again Capcom for ruining something great. I swear if they try to stick him in as DLC when they have so many throw aways in the official roster, I will never buy a Capcom game again...
No Megaman, no Cyclops, no Phoenix Wright, No Strider Hiryu...Capcom seems to have selective hearing when it comes to answering fans requests or, more so, NOT, answering fans requests.
Final Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Roster Is 36 Characters And Marvel vs Capcom 2 had 56 characters. We move on to the sequel on new gen consoles and no less than 20 characters are missing from the roster... :( It's ok, we're used to it by now. "Get your credit cards ready for the first batch of dlc coming out day one", eh? We know, we know...
Man, your user name is so last gen. We don't unlock game content anymore. We buy it. I doubt even Jill, the master of unlocking, can get around that.
More than half were clones characters or not really original from each other mind you . And all of them minus 9 new characters were straight rips down to the sprite from fighting games of various ages . I get that of course some omissions are a deliberate attempt to sell them as dlc . But everything isnt entirely black nor white .
One more reason to trust in Namco over Capcom. Tekken tag tournament 2 is coming and had every character from Tekken 6 returning with new ones. they released tekken 6 with no DLC and even the online coop mode that came out afterwards was free, you can customize the characters as you wish instead of buying these ridiculous "costumes" that are already on your disc. People gotta show these greedy devs and respect the hard working ones.
"Trust Namco." Oh, trust the guys that took forever to put Yoda/Vader in the other version of SCIV, making the multiplat exclusivity pointless? The same Namco that charged for disc-locked content in a Katamari game just so you could get 1000 Gamerscore? Yeah, they're much more trustworthy...
Rofl indeed . Namco "invented" selling characters as dlc . Only reason they couldnt bother with selling many costumes was the customisation already there since t5 (doing that backfired in sc4) . Wich they had to include anyway because of the heavy competition in 3d fighting from the likes of Virtua fighter They couldnt code after 2 games already (dark resurrection , soul calibur 4) a decent online . They released a meh tekken 6 before giving in to releasing tag , since they were loosing fans over t6 . What was the reason again Tag hasnt been already present since tekken tag 1 ? As if people couldnt just pick 1v1 if they wanted ? And they still keep reusing the same animation since t3 and tag 1 ...
You do realize that most of the characters in MvC2 were just ripped from previous Marvel/Capcom games, right? As in they didn't have to recrate/reanimate them from scratch every single time. Wolverine was first brought in X-Men: Children of the Atom, which came out in 1994. Then from that point on, they just reused his exact same sprites for the next Marvel games for years to come. Then Marvel vs Capcom 3, a game completely in 3D. They have to create a brand new character model and reanimate him from scratch. Maybe you don't know this, but do you realize how much work it is to recreate and reanimate a character in a completely different program/art style from scratch? That and those new Level 3 animations certainly add to the work load. All I'm saying is that while it does suck that there are in fact a significant amount of characters missing from the previous game, think about how much work must be put in for not only the returning characters, but the brand new characters as well. It isn't exactly as black and white as you make it seem. Oh and for the record, it's been reported that Jill and Shuma Gorath are in fact NOT in the disc. So this is a legitimate DLC. Granted, announcing DLC before the game is even released is rather... yeah...
so tired of DLC
i'm still getting this game but if this is it for the roster, then i'm disappointed.
DLC Fighters Incoming!!!!
agreed, they already have Jill and Shuma as dlc characters for pre-orders(or special edition, can't remember which) and you can bet they will go on sale as well, plus a dozen other characters. Then 6 months to a year later after they sell these DLC characters they will release the "Ultimate MvC3 deluxe edition" with all dlc characters included with another slate of DLC characters to purchase. Thats how capcom works, just look at RE5 and SF4, they did something similar to that and they will do it again here.
I mean I GUESS it makes sense. But remember a world before DLC? When games came out finished . . .? Yah, I dont either!!
It's never enough.
They just wanted more characters than the SUper Smash bros Brawl roster... and they succeeded... By one.
Wesker... Sunglasses... Perfection
I am sure that Super Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Alpha EX Tournament Gold Edition will have more.
Yessssssssss febbbbbbb 2011
ok so mvc2 has 54 peep right, so why capcom we get a whole lot less peep in mvc3. none the less i would get mine on day 1.
Well that's because in MVC2 they recycled characters from their previous fighting games like X-men vs Street Fighter
It's actually 34, the other two you must pay... It is forbidden to unlock features in the old school way, instead you have to make a transactions in order to unlock... That is why I will buy it used, a game like that does not have value to buy it brand new...
No. The article says that the final roster will be 36, not including the DLC characters. Learn to actually read the article and not just assume things.
wheres ken and blade?
at a bar with Frank West and Cyclops trying to drown their disappointment.
I'm cool with the current roster so far Still getting on day 1, midnight release
Like i've been saying for months on all the other forums all they did was re-polish old sprites from thier previous fighting games and the new characters we did get are fucking gay.
