Marvel vs. Capcom 3 crossing over to PS Vita - Retail Radar

Amazon France lists product page for unannounced port of fighting franchise; Capcom says it has made no announcements.

Last month, Capcom Europe COO David Reeves said the publisher has at least four games in store for Sony's upcoming PlayStation Vita. One of those may have come to light today, as Amazon France has posted a product page for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds on the new handheld (as spotted by Gematsu).

Like a tiny Phoenix, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may get a second life on Sony's new handheld system.

Amazon France has a decent track record with product leaks for high-profile titles for Sony hardware. Last year, the retailer broke word of Uncharted 3, Team Ico Collection, and Ubisoft's PlayStation 3-exclusive high-definition Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia trilogies before their official confirmation. However, instead of offering the game for preorder, Amazon France's Marvel vs. Capcom 3 PS Vita page simply notes the title is not in stock currently and the retailer doesn't know when it will be.

When contacted by GameSpot for comment, a Capcom representative merely said, "We have made no announcements at this time."

Interestingly, the Amazon France listing is for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, not its recently revealed update, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Set for release on the Xbox 360 and PS3 this November, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will include a dozen new characters, eight additional stages, and a variety of gameplay tweaks and new character moves.

I can asure you it's quite reasonable. Perhaps you can give the game a pass if it excluded for example. Spider-Man, The Hulk, Wolverine, Ryu, or Chun-Li. But some of us prefer a more complete package before we let our wallets do the talking. Gameplay alone is not enough. It's merely a subset of what makes the fabric of the game. Netcode, plot, and roster are what makes up the rest. It's important not to lose sight of that or else devs will deem it okay to put half efforts into all these things. Which is unacceptable, and Megaman's not just "my favorite character" I already told you. He warrents enough entitlement to be apart of the game. Omitting Megs isn't like removing Venom, it would be the same as taking out Mario from Smash Brothers. You can downplay roster appeal all you want, fact is roster part of the reason people buy the game.

@TheArcade I buy games because of their gameplay appeal. You can increase the standard of everything else but gameplay is what matters. I don't penalize myself by not buying a game due to an unreasonable excuse such as "my favorite character isn't there!"

@LastRambo341: I see, so lower expectations on everything else is the standard then?

Amazon France? The same jokers who put Kid Icarus Uprising on the Wii U listings? I'm not buying this just yet.

[Insert fanboy comment regarding how much one hates ports to their handhelds] Oh wait, nevermind. Sony is doing it so it is okay.

@Office_Ninja I heard BlazBlue is already coming to the Vita. It's called "BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II Plus". :D

i already have SFIV and DoA for my 3DS so im good on mobile fighting games for now, plus im planning on getting the Ultamite version for ps3 anyway so no reason to get this.

@TheArcade That is what matters...the GAMEPLAY. @garland51 3rd version is cheaper. Like I said, people may wanna play on the go and do Streetpass

I'll b getting the Vita but MvC3 isnt 1 of the reasons as 2 y i'll b getting it. If it wuz the Ultimate edition i'd get it. Its not so i'll pass.

Pretty cool. A 3DS version would be nice as well!

Would had make more sense if it was Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 but anyways it's still a fine addition, I kinda had second thoughts about most of the changes in Ultimate so I'm glad it isn't that game.

OK, people complain about the 3DS being a remake, port device, at this moment I can think of 5, SSF4, Blazblue, Zelda, Star Fox and that Tales game (IMO Zelda and Star Fox are very good games that deserved to be ported/remade) and maybe there are more but I can't remember all of them now. Now, how many ports have been announced for the Vita now? how many ports existed on the PSP?????

as If there already wasn't a Sh*t Ton of reasons for me to buy a Vita this just added to them. seriously I'd be pretty stupid to pass one up now it's got everything I want. As for the 3DS it's price drop does make it more appealing and I love Resident Evil but I just haven't seen anything beyond Resident Evil on the 3DS that makes me want it.

Haven't tried the latest MvC, but I loved MvC 2, and it's portable, so why not. Just hope they release the Ultimate Ver. instead of the vanilla ver. I am a little disappointed that they didn't include Venom or Mega Man, my fav. characters. Venom's super move was awesome!

More ports? Vita will drown in them, just like the PSP.

Make it an Ultimate MvC3 then I might think about buying it for the Vita

Good to see some portable fighting lining up on the new handheld, hope BlazBlue, Dead or Alive and Street Fighter will join the mix.

Still don't plan to buy a Vita, but this does look interesting.

Well Capcom, gotta say, I'm starting to lose a little faith. First Megaman Universe, then Megaman Legends 3, now rereleasing fighting games that don't necessarily need to be released again. What next?

So, Capcom has time to port MvC 3 to the Vita, but they don't have time to finish developing Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe? Capcom, you are so damn near being my most hated company that it's not even funny.

@LastRambo341: Ask yourself this, whos more popular Venom and Bison or Megaman? I rest my case. It isn't unreasonable at all Megaman is a cash cow. He's one of the best-selling single named game series. To some people Gameplay don't mean didily without motivation, if that's you can think about we may as well be playing the next Capcom fighter using stick figures doing hyper combos. Man, what fun would that be?

they should release it for the 3ds instead, oh wait, the 3ds can't handle such a big game!!! 3ds sucks!!! vita rules!!!

i just love fighters on handhelds

It's cool I guess, but i never really got into fighters for handhelds. I use an arcade stick, so playing a fighter on a handheld is like going back to a controller. It'd be entertaining to have a portable version of this game though.

I don't understand how can you neglect a good game just for one character. Oh well, you can't please everybody,

I love fighters on handhelds, but MvC3 needs more gameplay options similar to 100-man kumite

@LastRambo341: SSFIV: Arcade Edition, MvC 3 & UMvC 3: $40 each on both PS3 & 360. Not that expensive.

I like fighting games on psp, the controls feel good. I like the idea of Ulitamate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on PS Vita. But I also want more fighting games for the Vita such as Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Virtual Fighter, King of the Fighters, Soul Calibur, Blaz Blue, and new franchises fighting games.

Why is everybody tripping on Capcom? First, MVC is not SF SF as ALWAYS put out multiple verisons of the same game since SF2 including SF2 turbo, hyper, champion edition SSF2 turbo ect. mind you this was back in the early 90's SF4 is no different they did the exact same thing, call it what you want but with all of those verisons there were very legit balancing. The MVC has sat on there hand their last 10 years after fans have been crying about a sequel, you get one and then cry about not enough characters, phoenix and akuma so they are going to balance it and add 12 characters....what more do you want? Cause you would have cried if you heard in 2009 that MVC3 wasnt coming out until 2012. Capcom is super loyal to their fans who still endlessly complain.

I personally cant wait to play this among other titles on the Vita, keep em coming....

Fighting games are best on handhelds. I'd certainly buy this :)

@garland51 Maybe people don't wanna buy the more expensive version of the game and they wanna play it on the go? @TheArcade That is an unreasonable statement to not buy the game. I wanted Venom and Bison to be in the game, but they're not. Guess what? I'll still buy it because of the GAMEPLAY, which is the most important thing.
