OBJECTION!

I’m not really a fan of Marvel VS Capcom 3, nor am I even vaguely interested in the upcoming Ultimate upgrade- however, this trailer is something to see. Of course it debuts Capcom’s popular gaming lawyer, Phoenix Wright, using his courtroom skills to lay waste to some of the galaxy’s most deadly villains. Seeing Doctor Doom finally pronounced GUILTY is indeed priceless. Heheh. Oh, and afterwards there the trailer for Nova thrown in for good measure… ho-hum. There should be more news and footage of UMVC3 and other fighters from Capcom, particularly Streetfighter X Tekken, over the weekend as NYCC kicks in. Stay tuned then!

Hawkeye’s getting quite some billing for a guy who shoots arrows- hype for 2012′s Avengers?

Though this fighting game bombshell may have been intended for a reveal at Comicon just a day or two from now, Amazon kinda let the cat out of the bag when it posted the item on it’s online catalogue. Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3, which is due in mid-November, will add in 12 additional characters to the original roster, to a total of 50 combatants to choose from.
For now, four of the new fighters have been unveiled- from Marvel it’s Ghost Rider and Hawkeye, while Capcom brings in Firebrand (from Ghosts and Goblins) and Strider Hiryu. Aside from the new characters, the game will feature gameplay rebalancing to make the game more accessible to various levels of players, and enhanced modes such as the much-requested Spectator Mode. Speaking of spectacles, check out this hot upgrade’s trailer.

The Mash-up gets even madder!

Have to say, I didn’t get Marvel vs Capcom 3- not my style of game, none of my characters in it. We’ll see in the added fighters if there’s a reason for me to give this a look. Let’s see what else this game has in store in Comicon later this week. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: Game site Giant Bomb has posted information on the whole roster slated for this Ultimate upgrade. To see all 12 of the upcoming combatants along with character art, head on over here. All I can say is- I have no use or interest in this sausage fest. Moving on then…
