Why Doesn’t Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Have Mega Man?

The entire Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster has been leaked. Producer Ryota Niitsuma confirmed it when I spoke with him yesterday. Since we know which characters are in the game, we also know who didn’t make the cut.

... so they'll just sell him as DLC to scam their faithful customers out of a couple of extra bucks again.

It's all about the money for Capcom.

and you wouldnt do the same? its a smart move considering you know they'll pay for it. Dirty but smart no doubt

... I would try to give my customers the best possible experience I can give them for 50 bucks, and then move on to my next project.

So I wouldn't have given them a mediocre character-roster just so I could make more money by releasing all the cool characters later on as DLC.

But hey, that's just me.

I'm a firm believer of giving great value for money, and considering the feedback from the game-community that companies like Capcom and Activision and EA are getting for their greed, which will also mean more and more player will be less inclined to buy their games at full-price cause they know they're basically getting an incomplete game, it wouldn't surprise me if these DLC-tactics are actually counter-productive for them in the long run...

It's not a scam if people are asking for dlc. It's just being smart. If you release all the good characters now how many people would have bought the new characters they added.

I haven't heard of a lot of these new characters but by putting them in along with good ones like Strider it means I can look forward to characters like Megaman, Gambit and Venom, while enjoying the variety of characters we are getting.

A lot of the characters people asked for were in Marvel 2. I want Gambit and Venom as much as anyone but if i wanted the whole Marvel 2 cast i'll just go play Marvel 2. Characters like Amaterasu, I would never have considered her for a versus game but look how good she turned out to be along with others.

IMO by not releasing all the good characters at once, the game will constantly be fresh as the good characters are added in and that is needed if this game is expected to last a decade like Marvel 2.

I think if capcom decides to adds Mega Man, it might stir up more flames from hardcore Mega man Fans. In addition,I think by adding mega man it might serve as a reminder that why Capcom never released a nextGEN mega man game.

Another possibility: could be that Capcom knows that if they add mega man to the DLC most hardcore gamers/mega man fans would buy it just to see mega man in action; even if it not a full mega man game. They'll still buy it.

According to Capcom he got just about as many requests as Strider, Mega Man had the green light too. But they decided to shit on us and pull out a forgotten character trapped in the abyss of the many NES games. Firebrand filled in Mega Man's spot.
