News Fighting PS Vita Capcom Playstation 3 Xbox 360 Microsoft Sony

The Heroes and Herald DLC mode for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be available for Australian owners this week, Capcom has announced. Heroes & Heralds is a separate mode available via the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Players will choose between two factions – Heroes or Heralds– and will engage in a series of battles with the opposing side to help save the world or take it over. Gameplay in the Heroes & Heralds mode will be altered through the acquisition of Ability cards that range from basic alterations (speed boost) to game-changing, combo enhancing powers (invisibility or ability to pass through projectiles). Cards can be used in online and offline versions of the Heroes & Heralds modes as well as the training mode. Ability cards are based on classic Marvel and Capcom characters.

The mode will also be available packed in with the Playstation Vita version of the game. The PS Vita edition of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will also feature online and local multiplayer, touchscreen functionality, NEAR in addition to the features found in the PS3 version. It also includes a Spectator Mode and Replay function that allows players to watch or share exciting matches over Wi-Fi. The Gold Herald colour option and “Ultimate Controller” (a mode where the PS Vita turns into a controller for the PS3 version) are also exclusive to the Vita.

The console version is now available at stores everywhere. The Playstation Vita version will be available to all Australians on February 23 2012, the same day that the Playstation Vita will launch in Australia. Capcom also released a trailer and the Australia cover art, which you can see below.


Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
