Capcom’s Christian Svensson offers an explanation towards the lack of Spiderman villains in the upcoming fighting game, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Venom at least should been in MvC3 Just like megaman(either X or original) should of been in MvC3 Capcom has fallen off, everything about $$$/DLC these days.
Marvel gets the final say for their characters. Nothing Capcom could do about that but as for Megaman, after seeing his picture in one of the stages it's obvious he'll be DLC.
Capcom does send and discuss a list of characters to Marvel on who they want but Marvel has complete control on who goes in and who doesn't. I read on a translated site that Capcom wanted Gambit from the beginning but Marvel said no. Stupid guess but I reckon Hawkeye is only in because of The Avengers movie.
I wish the Sinister 6 was in there. I know Marvel controls every character in there based on their upcoming movies the avengers,thor, etc.
I've always wondered what the criteria for allowing Capcom to put in or leave out certain Marvel characters is. Like how do Marvel decide what characters they want in and out? I'm really curious
I wonder too but I think Hawkeye is for The Avengers movie. Ghost Rider was a no brainer because of the movie next year.
From what Seth Killian said in an interview, the character has to be relevant. So they only put in characters that they have plans for in the comics or in a film. I'm sure you've notice a lot of the characters in the game have been in recent movies. There's Thor, Captain America, The avengers film, X-men first class, the new spiderman film, Ghost rider sequel etc. Gambit on the other hand from what i've heard doesn't have any major plans and Venom is no longer Venom but anti-venom so they don't get priority. They are probably other things that decides who gets chosen, characters like Storm, Sentinal and Magneto can't be removed from a marvel game.
... because they are MARVEL characters. Marvel OWNS them.
They should put Carnage in one of these games. He would be sick. Mysterio would be a fun character too.
Don't worry guys. They'll make Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Arcade Edition (or something of that nature) in the near future. That way everyone gets his or her favorite character and Capcom rakes in the cash. History is in my favor and you know it's coming. I am prepared for the numerous disagrees.
so basically , POLITICS got in the way of the perfect MvC3 game. 'ooh well the movie has this, the movie doesnt this, the '..STFU and let them add all of them Marvel.
can't play just so they can make a plug for stupid ass movies
Because capcom are turning into another activision! Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!
Doctor Octopus would have been amazing. But I guess we'll have to settle for Rocket Raccoon. (sigh)
