Marvel vs. Capcom 3 'future plans' coming at Comic-Con

Publishers of game and comics say they'll have new information on top-rated fighter at San Diego event next week.

Thus far, Capcom has added just two characters to Marvel vs. Capcom 3's original 36-fighter roster, in addition to a handful of new costumes. However, it appears as if the gamemaker still has some future plans for its critical and commercial success.

HULK WANT SOMEONE NEW TO SMASH.

As part of a recently posted schedule for Comic-Con 2011, show organizers have revealed that both Capcom and Marvel will host panels discussing what's next for the crossover fighter. Capcom's panel is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 23, and Marvel's talk will follow shortly thereafter at 12:30 p.m.

"Come to this panel to hear the fantastic news about this legendary fighting game franchise straight from producer Ryota Niitsuma," reads the description for Capcom's panel. "Get an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek, as well as a chance to come onstage to showcase your fighting skills against each other for fantastic prizes."

Meanwhile, Marvel promises to have "some exciting new details about the future of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and other Marvel games via exclusive trailers, surprise reveals, and Q&A with the game creators from some of the industry's top publishers."

Comic-Con 2011 will set up shop in San Diego from July 21-24. GameSpot will be on hand to provide coverage from the event as it happens.

There better be new characters to beat arcade mode with... The Punisher and Blade making an appearance would be the best! Capcom has everyone in their catalog that matters, so Marvel should just add their more awesome characters to the game...

Hopefully this means more downloadable fighters and maybe even new modes to play. So far I'm liking MK 9 better...

A story mode would be nice.

one other thing they really should put a option to fight against CPU other than the story mode

they should make a new game and give the option of adding the new features by DLC for those that already have the game

capcom - so there was this thing with the programming, and it does not allow us to expand the game via DLC, we have to release a new game all together, but there will be a bonus for those who already purchased the game, they will be able to change the hair color of each character to white! because we love out fans ^_^! not gona get me this time @$$ holes!!!

Expect it to be SUPER marvel vs capcom 3 to be announced. No thank you I'll pass on this one.

Venom and the Punisher would be sick, shuma and jill were not as cool as their mvc2 counterparts, "I'm a member of STARS!"

HAHAHA!! People expect this to be DLC! No. If anything new does get released, be prepared to pay another full $60 for it and have the current game you've already paid for become outdated and useless.

Capcom should make a Pass like MK.

Agreed. Capcom's current 'pay per character' downloadable content business model is difficult to digest considering the previous Marvel vs. Capcom offering included 56 playable in-game characters.

Be nice to have more characters for DLC and cheaper.

For some reason I sense the word "SUPER" in the "future plans".

THINGS TO DO: More DLC characters. Cheaper DLC. A couple more gameplay modes.

This game, even from the first- in the arcade, never lived up to expectations. I doubt it will ever become a good game... Just like DBZ.

I've been waiting for new characters for this.

SUPER MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3:SECOND IMPACT."Now with spectator mode,20 new characters, endless battle. I bet this is what it will be like.

I can't say I was ever impressed by the roster in this game...

Yeah, new MvC3 news is great and all, but I'm a little more intrigued by the "other Marvel games" part. Back in the SNES and Genesis days, Capcom put out some pretty interesting Marvel properties like The Punisher, all those X-Men and Marvel fighters, and the X-Men brawlers. I would LOVE to see a return to good comic book games... nothing like this gen's flops that Sega keeps pumping out.

I read a story where someone found code for Doc Oc and Frank West. Will they follow through maybe?

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Hero Edition disc to have 2 new characters, Sabertooth and Dee Jay, along with 4 costume packs and 3 new stages XD of course this is fake, but to be expected from Capcom...

Marvel vs Capcom 3, for such a big title should have far more character variety.... like MvC 2.... dontcha think?

knowing Capcom this is a start of milking MVC3 & yall know it

I am perfectly happy about the roster right now but for goodness sakes..some new characters at least.

FallenOneX

Doc Ock and Frank Wes, or will it be the "Super" version others have already commented about? @ lamprey263 They didn't have to/couldn't do this (extra editions) with MVC2, back then you either released a full game or at least waited more than a year to release an upgrade.

I've learned my lesson thanks in part to Super Street Fighter IV. I bought Street Fighter when it was released and months later they announced the Super version. So now I'll just wait for the definitive version of MvC 3 along with SFvTekken.

Highly doubt anything of value will come of it.MVC3 was a let down.Got bored with it quick.Just not enough characters to keep me entertained.Plus so many foundation characters that fans loved and PLEADED for were ignored.

Honestly, I'd be perfectly fine with a "Super" version of MvC3. That is of course assuming owners of the original game could download the new features at a discounted rate (e.g. the Arcade Edition of SSF4)

Enjoyed the game enough and am interested to see what info they'll release...provided the new content doesn't come in the form of 100Kb downloads again...

TheArcade

Better be about the Fantastic 4, Megaman X/Classic, Dr. Strange, Carnage, Venom, Blade, and/or Black Panther.

Watch them screw people who already MVC3...And say a super version is coming out for 40$...

how bout announcing Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition VS Marvel Ultimate Alliance

lamprey263
lamprey263

haven't picked this game up yet, maybe I should just wait until MvC3 Hyper Alpha Gold Edition Turbo to come out several years later, honestly I thought they'd ignore this kind of strategy with MvC3 since they're already busy milking SF4 and they didn't bother doing this with MvC2

Darth_Nater307

I think I speak for all of the MvC3 community when I say, "Stop giving us stuff we won't pay for (Shadow Battles) & give us some new characters, costumes, stages, anything to alter the appearance of the game!"

some_guy05
some_guy05

how about you include all the characters from mvc2, then that will be brilliant

THE_BIONIC_ARM

I'm glad, it looks like a pretty empty experience compared to MVC 2, which can be bought for a fraction of the price MVC 3 costed at launch.
