« MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3: NEW CHARACTERS AND GAMEPLAY DETAILS  »

 

 

In the new issue of GameInformer confirms not only new characters but also game play details for the next installment of CAPCOM's VS. series.

NEW CHARACTERS

  • DANTE from Devil May Cry
  • CAPTAIN AMERICA
  • FELICIA from Dark Stalkers
  • DEADPOOL

According to SRK, Dante will be of his DMC3 form, and uses his Devil Trigger in battle, along with juggling his opponents with dual pistols. He can attack with his guitar, Nevan as well.

Captain America has a shield projectile and cartwheel dash.

Felicia can summon a cat-girl partner in battle.

Apparently Deadpool can beat his opponent with their own life bar and his teleportation device will "spaz out" if you over use it. 

Chris Redfield can attack with an assortment of weapons from Resident Evil 5 such as Submachine Guns, Grenade Launcher and even the Satellite Laser. He cannot summon zombies and whatnot.

 

GAME PLAY DETAILS

 

  • Tatsunoko vs Capcom controls combined with classic Marvel vs Capcom 2 type game play in an effort to make the game accessible to a larger audience. 
  • 3 on 3 Tag Team combat with Alpha, Beta and Gamma assists and Hyper Combo cancels.
  • EXCHANGE Button allows for simplified launchers across the board for all characters. Also allows players to slam opponents down to the ground to extend combos but can be countered with the correct counter inputs similar to throw teching in Tekken. Press the EXCHANGE button in mid-air to tag in other team members.

Deadpool and Cap. Awesome. Always nice to have your predictions confirmed. My only question now is whether they'll be using classic Steve Rogers Cap or the new Bucky Barnes Cap. There's a pretty big difference, I mean Bucky uses guns, and since Steve Rogers isn't technically Cap anymore I'm kinda hoping they'll use Bucky. I'd be very interested in seeing how they change the play feel from Cap in MVC2 to 3, especially if they change Captains. Also hoping Captain Commando will be back. Loved that guy.

"Tatsunoko vs Capcom controls combined with classic Marvel vs Capcom 2 type game play"

O_o? So, something like:

A B C
E P1 P2?

Whatever the case may be, I'm certainly looking forward to how this "Exchange" mechanic works out.

Sweet, Felicia was confirmed. I really enjoyed using her in Darkstalkers so I was hoping she'd be confirmed.

As for the controls, I was hoping they'd go back to six buttons since I wasn't overly fond of how the attacks in MvC2 worked but I did like the controls in Tatsunoko VS Capcom so I'm fine with that announcement. I dunno, for some reason I just didn't like the four button layout in MvC2, it just didn't feel right to me.

They'll probably still be using Steve, especially with the movie coming up.

Also, any chance the Game Informer article has the official logo. The oe from that fansite that we're using at the moment looks like ass to be honest.

Those predictions are so far so good! These are great additions. Felicia I never really played her in what little time I played MvC2 nor have I played Darkstalkers. But they need more Darkstalkers cast members and female players for balance in MvC at that, which have been Felicia and Morrigan. Cool to see Deadpool doing something where he breaks the fourth wall in the video game universe as well. Dante sounds like he'll be good or at least be fun to watch. Chris seems like he'll be the Cable for Capcom side. Strong cast thus far. I'm sure next announcements will have Chun included. I forgot who the other guesses were. I think Thor will be announced for obvious reasons. ;) Can't wait to see artwork and gameplay.

@Steadiestshark I saw that screen with the Daily Bugle. But it's pretty much a given he should be in this. He's an icon of Marvel after all.

Kinda hoping they do the Yun and Yang thing for Cap. I wanna see the new Bucky style cap in MVC3. That's awesome to hear about Deadpool and Dante.
