Capcom announces Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom has been announced as a re-release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, though this new version will include twelve new characters and eight new stages. Capcom officially announced Strider, Firebrand, Hawkeye, and Ghost Rider, but a leak stated that the remainder of the cast will be Phoenix Wright, Vergil, Nemesis, Frank West, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Rocket Racoon, and Nova (which Capcom has now confirmed). A few other tweaks have been made to the game, including a balancing of character abilities, and a spectator mode so players waiting in the lobby have something to look at other than the time remaining in the current match. The MSRP will be $39.99, which isn't all that bad a deal for gamers who didn't purchase MvC3 upon its initial release. No word yet if the new characters or stages will be made available as DLC for those who already own MvC3 (but here's hoping).
