MadCatz is set to release a new Tournament Edition joystick for Marvel vs Capcom 3, featuring some nice art from Shinkiro, who is the same guy who did a lot of the Tatsunoko vs Capcom art as well. The TE is limited to 5,000 units and will cost 159.99 according to Kotaku.
What do you guys think?
So we're about two weeks out from Marvel vs Capcom 3 finally being unleashed into the wild, and outside of any other potential DLC character announcements, we know the full roster of the game as well. Even without DLC characters, the game sports an impressive cast of both old and new faces from both universes, but are you satisfied?
I saw this on the Keystone IRC chat via Engadget today and thought it was pretty slick. This is more or less and casing for a netbook that turns it into a min-arcade cabinet -- it's even laced up with Sanwa and Seimetsu buttons! That said, I'm not sure if most netbooks out there are juiced up enough to play games like Third Strike or even older CPS2 games, but it's worth checking out either way.
The kit will be available in March and will go for about $349 plus shipping. Check out more details by clicking here.
Marn announced today that he has been released from his contract with Evil Geniuses per his request. Marn was the first SF4 player to be signed to EG, with Justin Wong and Ricky Ortiz signing shortly there after. Details of why he left are unknown at this time but this is what he had to say on Facebook:

Melty Blood development studio Ecole Software will be in attendance at Hydra GP next week, a Melty Blood-focused tournament over in Akihabara. According to Andriasang, Ecole is set to make an announcement for an all-new game at some point during the event. The teaser doesn't give a hint as to what it'd be, but considering it's set to be announced at a fighting game tournament, you can safely assume that it'll be some form of a fighting game.
The event kicks off on February 6 at Club Sega in Akihabara. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more.
Crosscounter is back with yet another episode of The Excellent Adventures! In this episode, the guys are once more joined by Flash Metroid.

We reported last friday that Star Gladiator and Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness would be headed to the Japanese PSN's Games Archives, and now there's word that those lucky jerks over in Japan are getting yet another gem from Capcom's fighting game library: Darkstalkers 3, or as it's known over there, Vampire Savior EX Edition.
So far there's no word on a release date or a price for the PS1 port. As Siliconera points out in their report, Star Gladiator and Darkstalkers 3 have at least a shot of making their way over to the US PlayStation Store as both titles have already been localized. One can hope, right?
The team behind 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience just released a new teaser trailer featuring Gootecks and Mike Ross and they talk about the arcade scene and how there is nothing else like it.

GameSpot held a 64-man pre-release tournament for Marvel vs Capcom 3 recently, where IPW's own Haunts, Darry and RogerDoger were in attendance. The first of several videos highlighting some of the matches from the event is up on YouTube, which you can find below. Other videos will be released every Friday leading up to the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3, so that'll give us -- me especially -- something to hold us over until the big day.
The first video showcases several matches from the tournament as it rounds down to the top 16 and also includes some choice words from the one and only Seth Killian. Give it a look!
I have seen the future. It wears a curley moustache.
Today, I drove up to San Francisco and met up with Haunts and Rogerdodger to play in GameSpot.com's Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament. Despite having been present at, and doing commentary for, more than one event since Evo where the game was playable, I hadn't gotten any time on the buttons. My exposure to the game was limited to drooling over match videos, then acting offended and claiming a severe mental disability brought on by a recent stroke when my friends mocked me for sitting with my mouth as open as a barn door while salivating down the front of my shirt.
I finished Top Eight.
UPDATE: Capcom has confirmed with Shacknews that more character announcements are coming, and they could be coming soon. Speaking with Shacknews, a Capcom representative stated, "All will be revealed in the next couple of weeks."
ORIGINAL: Capcom announced Hsien-Ko and Sentinel just yesterday, but it looks like Capcom is gearing up for even more announcements. On the characters page of the official Marvel vs Capcom 3 site, an image, seen on the left, suggests that you follow them on Twitter and Facebook for further character announcements.
Considering the apparently full launch roster has already been announced, these characters would have to end up being DLC. Capcom has hinted several times that more DLC characters could be in the works, so it looks like we might be hearing those announcements soon enough. Who knows, maybe we'll end up getting Strider after all?
If you are a Capcom fighting game fan and want a blast from the past, PSN has a double dose coming your way. Capcom Playstation One classics Star Gladiator and Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness will be available on Playstation Network in Japan on February 9th. Both titles will be priced at 600 Yen each. There is no word on availability in other territories, but we'd be surprised if these don't get a wider release soon. Now, where's my Rival Schools!
