Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
The Vita is getting in on the brawling action early with the launch of Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The updated re-release includes the new on- and offline Heroes & Heralds mode, available today as a downloadable update; eight new stages; a tweaked fighting system; 12 new fighters (six for each side); and a six-player Spectator Mode. The Vita version also includes touch screen controls, a Near-only Gold Herald color option, and the ability to fight and share replays anywhere via wi-fi. Also, any DLC purchased for the PlayStation 3 version can be shared with the handheld version.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s free Heroes & Heralds DLC is now available for the 360 and PS3. The new mode, playable on and offline, pits the Heroes and Heralds factions against one another as the heroes battle Galactus’ heralds to save Earth from annihilation. Fighters are customizable through the use of Ability cards, which affect the combatants’ stats and powers with enhancements ranging from speed boosts to invisibility.
Objection! The most dogged attorney in the industry, Phoenix Wright, will be joining the roster of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Wright won’t be entering the fray alone, however, as Marvel hero Nova will also be entering the brawl. Both represent just two of the dozen new fighters that will be battling alongside and against the original’s lineup.
