UMvC3 Vita Touch Controls, Release Date

News Fighting PS Vita Capcom Sony

With the Playstation vita sporting touch screen capabilities, it would make no sense for companies to not take advantage of these new control schemes for a Sony handheld. In the case of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, the game will allow full touch control of fights if one decides that the game may be easier or have a better experience than the use of traditional buttons.

Within the game, this is how the touch control can be used, according to Andriasang:

  • Move forward/backward by dragging forward/backward
  • Dash forward/backward by flicking forward/backward
  • Duck by dragging down
  • Jump by flicking up
  • Change characters by tapping and holding the icon of the new character
  • Call on assist character by tapping the icon of the assist character
  • Attack by tapping anywhere but the icons
  • Execute your Hyper Combo by tapping the Hyper Combo Gauge

In addition to touch controls within fights, one can actually use the Vita as a Playstation 3 controller, which Capcom dubs “Ultimate Controller.” It will also allow players to assign special attacks and execute them with the simple touch of a panel on the Vita. This is what was implemented for Super Street Fighter IV 3D, released for the Nintendo 3DS at its launch this year. You can see how it will look like on the Vita end below:

In other Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Vita news, it has been announced that the game will be a second choice for those who choose to get the First Edition bundle, which comes out on February 15 for North American markets only, one week before the official release on February 22. This is also the release date of the game, so, if you decide to purchase a Vita, there might be a game waiting for you to play… after the battery is charged, of course.

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 DarkspawnI 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!
