Marvel vs. Capcom 3 due Q2 2011 on PS3, 360

Long-rumored comic-book crossover fighting game will arrive next spring, with three-on-three tag teams, Evolved Vs. Fighting System; full trailer inside.

by

Following months of rumors, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds has finally been confirmed. This morning, Capcom officially announced that the collaboration with Marvel Entertainment, the comic publisher that was bought by Disney last year, will arrive in spring 2011 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3's character roster...so far.

Like previous installments in the series, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be a fighting game that pits characters from the iconic comic book canon against heroes from such game series as Resident Evil and Street Fighter. The upcoming title will sport the "Evolved Vs. Fighting System," which will include aerial combos, hyper combos, and other new combos. It will also feature a three-on-three tag-team mode that will let players use each character's combat techniques in tandem.

Unfortunately, the Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds announcement did not offer a roster of which characters would be featured in the game. However, several personalities were shown off in a trailer accompanying the game, viewable below. On the Marvel side, these included The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and Wolverine. Capcom-wise, Ryu (Street Fighter), Morrigan Aensland (Darkstalkers), and Chris Redfield (Resident Evil) were on display.

No rating information is available for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which is the first new entry in the series since 2002's Marvel vs. Capcom 2. (That game was ported to the PS3 and 360 last year as a downloadable title.) Its engine will be an updated version of Capcom's proprietary MT Framework engine used in last year's Resident Evil 5 and in Lost Planet 2, due out May 18.

so yeah.. I've matched some character pictures up with the shadowy figures in the background of both of the offical MvC3 pics. there are only 2 guys I'm not sure of.. You can clearly tell that Trish from DMC is in it. and Dante.. and Wesker.. I think this might be a pretty good game

I see - Deadpool, Felicia, Capt America, Chun-Li, Dante [DMC3], Doc Doom[?]. The silhouette near chris could be Wesker? Either way im hyped for thislol. Fighting fans have been waiting tiiiiiiime for this game. Lets hope its all worth it!

Capcom find old cows to milk with this & SF series ....I hope the music is better than MvC2 (it was awful). Anyone agree the backwards compatability issues with the Xbox 1 version of MvC2 running on X360 were a joke. Glad I kept my Xbox 1 for original games, the download version was obviously planned as to 'cash-in'... sorry...to get back on track...at least the wide roster allows for most people to find a favorite char.

Is anybody even going to use any of the 30+ chars? I can just see it...Magneto, Storm, Cable or Sentinel. Oh yeah 4 v 4 battles! (I hope)

F Thaa Bs Lets See 56 Chars Again But Balance It More,I'd Personally Like To See Capcom Use Tha Same Graphics But Make The Chars Look Like Their Alpha Counterparts Due To The Fact Its Always Been That Way[Not Knokin sf4]I Would Like To See Either All Alpha Chars Or Most Of The Sf4 With A Few More From Either Ex Or Sf3 Some More But Thats Just Me

given that's it's roster is deep, for it's next gen debut they should keep the original roster and add a ton of new fighters but knowing capcom they'll charge us for new fighters as dlc instead of just taking the time to put everything they can in the game from the start,think sf4 to super sf4(LOL) it would be nice to see new gameplay while not changing the control system and finally what took them so long?

also i think, but its a streatch , that the character below him (morrigans right) is Zarathos. (or the original ghost rider in his own clothes in his true demon form)

hey, behind morrigan in that group picture looks to be a skrull. specifically one of the early first characters who possessed all the powers of the fantastic four (note the long arm, and thing like hands as well as what looks to be pointy ears).

@Sam-OS Amen brother! This is a dream come true but Capcom PLEASE come full circle and release a next gen Onimusha AND Capcom VS SNK 3. I would be happy to each and every individual in the world if this happened.

@ BlueFlameBat My god, you're right. within a week of SSF4 i was done with it because of that crap. paying for the marvel license may just be too much of an excuse.

YESSS!!!! my only worry is that some older characters get axed. We wont get everyone from mvc2, but getting their recent franchise characters only would be bummer kinda. Capcom has lots of great tittles and franchises that im sure we'd all like to see come out soon like plasma sword or strider. just wanna see some people we havent seen in a while.

@method115 - In the movies or comics hulk maybe the ultimate badmotherfungus... but i was referring to magneto in the game. I assume you haven't played MvC2... coz back then, mag's pwn every one with his very hard to pull (read : almost impossible) infinite hits... except for cable, who can kill 3 character with just 3 supers.........at once.... But Hulk rocks too... coz he can... throw rocks at you.

@ ThePhantomGamer I really hope not jill was by far my favourite Capcom character and joint favourite with spiderman @ Henninger your wish list can go on as long as you want being in the age of DLC I can see capcom putting polls up for which characters we want added after also any marvel films that come up will probally lead to themed downloads for example say ironman2 was coming out after mvc3 was released they could add whiplash or nick fury as I believe he makes an apearence

Heard their isn't going to be any hyper active fighting. :( It may play more along the lines of Street Fighter IV than any Marvel game in the Versus Series. Is this accurate can anyone confirm? I rather enjoyed the hyper activity of X-Men: COTA, MSH, X-Men vs. SF, MSHvsSF, MVC1 and kind of MvC2.

Sirbobislost, most likely they replaced her with Chris.

I agree with u Sirbobislost. I have no words for the joy that has taken over my mind!!! I love the MvC series & have been waiting just as long as the rest of u on this game!!! Please Marvel bring me Carnage. Or Ghost Rider or Punisher or Deadpool or Doctor Strange!!! The list could go on 4 days with me & this game!!! I dont think i've ever been so excited 4 a game before!!! Now the year long agonizing wait can begin!!!

Yep, just played TvC as Ryu and his Shinku Hadouken in the MvC3 video is definitely identical but in gorgeous HD. Looks like MvC3 is deffo gunna be in the same style as Tasunoko. 2D lovers are weeping but love it in 2.5D!

So many characters I wanna see in this...Dante, Wesker, Thor, Carnage, Virgil, Phoenix....only 2 suggestions to capcom, please make this game as balanced as possible and oh yea...PLEASE DON'T WASTE A CHARACTER SPOT BY INCLUDING ROLL!

@ method115 Not really. There is a small list of characters in the Marvel U. that can take on the Hulk single-handedly. Among them are Hercules, Sentry, and Abomination. Thor can hold his own as well. Plus, I think bigfruit was speaking of the fact that in the past, Magneto has been a powerhouse in the game, and dangerous in the hands of a skilled player. All I have to say is, I have no idea if I'm pissed that this took 11 years or that I have to wait one more. Either way, about damn time.
