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.

Street Fighter 4: Koryu is a go! 

Street Fighter 4: Koryu is a mod for the PC version of Street fighter 4. (Named after the famous Chinese Street Fighter 2 mod, which is equally as insane) If you haven't been following the modding scene, they have been finding some crazy stuff. Unlimited focus attack? Check. Shoryukens that spit out 8 fireballs? Check. Manic Balrog smile? Check.

The mod isn't out yet, but I couldn't be more excited for it.

PRE-SBO GUILTY GEAR ACCENT CORE TIER LIST

Here's the latest GGAC tier list from Arcadia.

S: Eddie, Testament
A: Millia
B: May, Potemkin, Jam, Slayer
C: Sol, Ky, Chipp, Faust, Baiken, Axl, Anji, Venom, Dizzy, I-No, Zappa, Robo Ky, ABA, Order Sol
D: Johnny, Bridget

Seeing as last year's SBO came down to a team of Testament/Millia/Venom vs Johnny/Bridget/Zappa, it will be interesting to see what happens this year. How this game constantly evolves and yet manages to remain as balanced as ever is one of the reasons I love it so much. Four more years!

Here's the first match from last year's finals, for reference.

Eff It... Shoryuken!

You're on Xbox Live. You're at an arcade. You're playing at a friend's party. You get matched up with someone that doesn't know the first thing about the game. They pick Ken. They walk right up to you and shoryu you in the mouth. You shake your head and mutter, picking blond white boy out of your teeth. Match continues. You bait the shoryu and punish. He starts throwing out crouching roundhouse and jump back hadoken. You're walking into his “offense”. He gets confident. You make love to a wake-up Ultra. His. You lose. You eat an entire can of salt and vinegar Pringles.

 

Sound vaguely familiar?

 

Think about the reasons why you'd get upset losing to that Ken. There's a disease in your game. Those reasons are silent symptoms.

Capcom's Seth Killian Featured on GamePro.Com Article

Seth Killian, Community Manager for CapcomGamePro.com has a pretty interesting article about community managers, and of course our friend Seth Killian was among the ones featured in the piece.  You've got to respect Capcom for having a community manager, someone who can talk directly to the fans.  The Capcom fighting game community is especially lucky, as Seth isn't just another PR head. He is a legend in the community as a player and organizer.  

This article may give you a better understanding of what Seth Killian's job as community manager really is.   

"The worst kind of day [for somebody like me] is where you may have talked about something you weren't supposed to talk about [and] somebody internally freaks out," he says. Rather than being concerned for his own job or fretting about dirty looks from the PR department, Killian is afraid of damaging his community. "My worry [is] that Capcom will be like, 'Alright, well, we tried this whole talking to fans thing, and it's trouble, so we're going to stop doing that.' Anytime I feel like I've done something that could jeopardize [the relationship between community and company], that's really an awful feeling. Because [this job] is bigger than you."

VERSUSCITY: JAPANESE ARCADE LEXICON

Oichi put together an awesome lexicon of terms that you will hear in Japanese arcades. He has the terms in both English and Japanese, and many of them also have short descriptions as well. Very interesting to say the least, here's an excerpt from VersusCity.

I’ve been working on this for a couple of months during my free time, and it’s gotten big enough that I feel justified in publishing it. Check the top bar for the Arcade Lexicon link, which contains a wealth of common terms used in Japanese arcade games and fighting games. The list contains the English meaning, plus the Japanese word both in kanji and in romaji. There are also notes to describe some of the more intricate terms. As always, if you have suggestions, I’ll be more than happy to field them!

You can also check out our Glossary here on iPlayWinner where you will find a ton of Fighting Game terms, even slang!
