Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Announced @ Capcom’s Captivate 2010

This is it folks, after a decade of demand Capcom has finally given in…

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 3 IS IN DEVELOPMENT!!!!!

Here’s the reveal teaser, via YouTube.

From the looks of things, it appears that the 2.5D  SFIV engine will NOT  be used, dashing our hopes of maybe getting high-res 2D sprites a la BlazBlue Capcom is stating that the game will be played with 3D characters on a 2D plane, but that an advanced version of the MT framework (used in games such as Lost Planet 2 and Resident Evil 5) will be utilized.

Described in the press kit as a “living comic…with a deep story”, MvC3’s announcement today is a big deal and it’s mainstream success might open the door for more games in the VS. series or hopefully a completely original fighter.

Capcom’s Seth Killian had this to say “It’s important that game’s have strong stories for Marvel, with fighting games it’s not as essential as an action game or role playing game but we are very much insisting there be some cohesive kind of story for this game. We actually have a subtitle for the game that means something this time. In the coming months we will be giving you more information about.”

As far as characters go, it appears that the following are confirmed to be in the game:

Wolverine, the Hulk, Iron Man, Street Fighter’s Ryu, Darkstalker’s Morrigan, Resident Evil’s Chris Redfield, Captain America, Super Skrull, Chun-Li, Deadpool, Felicia, Dante, Frank West, Mephisto, Black Widow and Doctor Doom.

Now if only Capcom would give us another Darkstalkers! Hey, I can HOPE….

Check back here for more news from Captivate 2010 … I’m sure Capcom has more surprises for us.

Quick note to anyone who’s reading….

Sorry for the lack of updates lately.

I know that there’s not much to read about on the internet, and when I fail to post news, I realize that I’m contributing to the lack of words floating around the innard-webs.

From the depths of my bosom, I apologize, and will strive to post more stuff – more often.

Real life just has a tendency to get in the way…that and my recent quest to 1CC the PS2 version of  Espgaluda.

(The 4th boss is kicking my ass, but I’ll get it soon…my scores though, are beginning to soar well over 14+ million…Yay…)

Deathsmiles (360) US Release Looms – Preorder NOW!

Posted in Game News with tags , , , , , , on April 15, 2010 by Mat$kat

Cave’s killer horizontal shmup, Deathsmiles, is finally getting released stateside.

It’s up for preorder on Amazon, and Gamestop’s sites. I advise purchasing two copies…one for a friend – our dollars are our votes for Cave to localize their games and send their awesome shmups to the US.

Deathsmiles has been localized by Aksys games, who you all may be familiar with for their involvement in the US release of BlazBlue : Calamity Trigger, and the famous Guilty Gear series.

Check out Aksys’ website HERE.

Everybody get out there and buy the damn game.
