If you thought Marvel Vs Capcom 3 couldn’t possibly get any better, well think again, as Capcom and Marvel have announced the release of Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 for PS3 and XBox 360, complete with new characters, a refined upgraded fighting system plus 8 new stages and modes all at a fantastic price. The next instalment in the exceptionally popular series adds 12 new challengers to the Marvel Vs Capcom fighting arena, introducing zombie slayer Frank West taking a break from Dead Rising to show off his strength, as well as Rocket Raccoon, taking a break from saving the cosmos to grace us with his prescence. Also included in the character options are Phoenix Wright, Vergil, Nemesis, Strider and Firebrand representing Capcom, and Nova, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Ghost Rider and Hawkeye in the Marvel corner.
There are also a whole host of enhancements and features implemented into Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 to improve the games balance and online functionality. Of particular note is the fan requested Spectator mode which allows fighters to watch online matches together, planning their next moves and exploiting their enemies weaknesses. If all that is not enough, there will also be free DLC available after launch in the form of Heroes and Heralds; a new single and multi-player mode where players can unlock new abilities with upgrade cards, customise characters, and choose whether to be friend or foe to Galactus as he tries to take over Earth and its lands.
