I'm in a hotel in France right next to the border with Switzerland with Dawgtanian, Dieminion & F-Word in preparation for Beat By Contest this weekend. The groups for the solo tournament have just been announced and are as follows. The tournament will see a number of Japanese in action such as Tokido, Sakonoko and Mago along with a number of high profile European players like Luffy, StarNab, Dawgtanian and F-Word. Dieminion will be representing America; Justin Wong, Marn and Ricky Ortiz were expected however none will attend.
Hit the jump to see the groups!
Andriasang has some new information (via Famitsu) on Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition's online capabilities, and it looks like spectator mode is in. According to the report, up to six players will be able to watch a match at the same time, and you'll also be able to switch between the standard and 3D views on the fly by tapping X.
Speaking of the 3D view, what do you guys feel about it? Would you ever play in that view, or do you plan to stick to the standard view?
1UP managed to score an exclusive trailer for Mortal Kombat's recently-revealed Liu Kang, and unlike the last Liu Kang video, this one is (almost) pure gameplay. Also shown in the video is what appears to be some kind of alternate costume for Johnny Cage. Find it embedded below!
Isedelica uploaded another video that contains all the combo rankings contained in Marvel vs Capcom 3. Most of you are probably familiar with anything up to 50-100 hits by now, but what happens when the hit counter goes over 199?
Tron Bonne has a loop versus Sentinel as well, running the counter up to 999-hits! Details aren't contained in the video but it looks like it has something to do with hitting him when he is called in as an assist. Check out the entire video below.

NetherRealm Studios' Director of Art, Steve Beran, has an excellent article over on the PlayStation.Blog detailing how the team comes up with all of those crazy and gruesome fatalities. The article isn't going to tell you anything about the game that you didn't know, but the insight into the creative process is pretty neat. You can give it a read by heading over to this link.
Yo! Wanted to let everyone know I am uploading a bunch of Marvel vs Capcom 3 casual matches we had recently. The theme was to try our best not to use Sentinel the entire night and mess aorund with some new team combinations, though I'll say I did break the rule after a few salty matches. Either way, you guys should check these out as they have a nice mix of characters and some solid play as well.
I've embedded a handful below, but keep checking our YouTube Channel for more updates as there is a lot more on the way!
Alright so I wanted to give you guys a look at the 1UP.com Marvel vs Capcom 3 SuperGuide, which just went live today! We have about five characters up total, with a lot more on the way -- tons of updates coming this week! The idea behind these guides is to give everyone a sense of what each character is capable, how much of a learning curve they have, and some bread and butter combos to get your started. Each character will also have a quick combo video to give you an idea of some of the timing involved with a lot of their sequences.
Below are links to a few of the characters we've finished, and you can bookmark the guide for future updates here.
So now that many of you have the game in your hands, whether you grabbed it at midnight release or this afternoon, we want to get your thoughts on the game so far. Many people have had a chance to play it even before release with it being playable at numerous events thanks to Capcom, but now you actually get to grind it out in training mode and play against others.
So what's on your mind? Having fun with it? Everything you expected and more or is something lacking?
IGN's got the scoop on a brand new character reveal for Mortal Kombat, Noob Saibot, by way of a trailer over on their site. Going by the video, it looks like he retains some of his classic moves, but with a few new ones and a few twists on old ones. All in all, I think he actually looks pretty awesome. Check out the video of Noob in action after the break and let us know what you think!
Desk has been on a roll in 2011 so far releasing some insane combo and execution videos for Super Street Fighter 4. He just uploaded a teaser video for Marvel vs Capcom 3, and of course a game like this with such a wide open combo system, one can only imagine what he is up to.
The first batch of DLC for Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be available starting March 1st! Leading the way will be a new costume pack, which appears to feature new alternate outfits for Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Ryu, Chris Redfield, and Dante, as well as the first Shadow Mode DLC pack. The Costume Pack will cost $5 on PSN or 400MS Points on Xbox Live. Also on the way are the first two DLC characters, Jill Vallentine and Shuma-Gorath. Capcom Unity implies that these will arrive on the 1st as well, but we've heard reports of March 15th. We will keep you updated when we get clarification.
A bunch of screenshots for the new alternate costume pack can be found in this image gallery! What do you think?
