We knew it was coming eventually. With the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 earlier this year, there was no question that Capcom had expansion in mind somewhere down the road, adding new fighters and features to keep the latest entry in the series fresh for the fighting community. And lo and behold, not even a year later, we have Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, a quasi-sequel that features tighter balancing, new backgrounds, an interesting new sub-mode with the final boss and twelve characters that help mix up the roster a little bit. Now it’s just a question of whether you want to fork over $40 for it. Unfortunately, Capcom didn’t provide the option to simply upgrade the game via downloadable content, as they did with Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition earlier this year. This is a sorely missed opportunity, as many angry fighting fans will be grumbling as they hand over their hard-earned cash for the upgrade. But fret not, for it’s an upgrade that is worth the cash in the long run.
