'Fighting games have always been a bit of a poor fit for handheld consoles, but that hasn't stopped developers like Capcom from trying. Remember Street Fighter II for the Game Boy? How about Mortal Kombat?
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is obviously a much more polished port than either of those games -- it helps that the Vita has far more buttons than the Game Boy -- but it stills suffers a bit from a lack of purpose. Fighting fans, after all, will almost always prefer a large screen and the use of their own arcade sticks. And chances are good that they already own the console version.'
