Wes Phillips and Sid Shuman discuss Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s new characters and gameplay tweaks at E3 2010.

Hello PlayStation Nation! This is a big weekend for fighting game fans, as the world’s best descend upon Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for the EVO 2010 World Fighting Finals this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

EVO Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

Thousands of contestants from over 30 countries will battle it out for fame, glory and cash in Super Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter II HD Remix, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and a couple non-Capcom games… Tekken 6 and Melty Blood: Actress Again.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for PS3 Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for PS3

Registration for the event is officially closed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a piece of the action. If you can make the trip to Las Vegas, admission to watch the event is free.

We’ll also have the E3 build of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 available to play on PlayStation 3 for anyone who shows up! This will be the first time the game is playable for the general public.

Did I mention that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 just won Best Fighting Game at E3?

If that wasn’t enough, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma and Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono will both be on hand to greet the fans.

G4

Can’t make the trip? Capcom and G4 have teamed up this year to bring the action into your home. G4TV.com will be streaming 45 hours of matches over three days, including the Super Street Fighter IV Grand Finals on Sunday night with special commentators Adam Sessler (G4’s X-Play) and Capcom’s fighting guru Seth Killian. (Big ups to the crew at Level Up for producing the stream.)

Also, during the live stream one lucky viewer will have the chance to win a limited-edition gold EVO fight stick furnished by the fine folks at Mad Catz.

Gold EVO Stick

It all culminates with a special episode of X-Play on Tuesday, July 20 at 6 p.m. PST entitled X-Play vs. Capcom: EVO 2010 World Fighting Finals. (Check your local listings.)

So much awesome to fit into one weekend, but I think you can handle it.

MvC3 is looking great! I wish I was in Vegas this weekend so i could try the game out for myself, but I’ll be watching the G4tv.com live steam.

Evo 2010 is gonna be so Hype now that the Level Up crew is taking over stream this year!

YaY i am hoping for wesker(RE5) megaman x and zero, viewtiful joe, and possibly juri and seth from SSF4. the only character they cannot forget i mean u just can’t forget is akuma.

i am buying this day one even if i have to find pennies in the street lol.

here is a question that im hoping but betting it wont get answered but lets ask, whats the button layout for this game?

at 2min50sec, Wes Phillips say: Dante is my favorite “Marvel” character…
But Dante is a Capcom character. lol

anyway, this is the same vidz i see from youtube over theses last 2 weeks (the same fight same characters) over and over again.
You should give us more insight* ^^

This game LOOK SO GREAT!!!
Good Job DEVs
count me IN!
And yeah, why not sell this game into PSN too
cuz i bought marvel vs capcom 2 and it would be great to have the “collection” on my PS3 hard drive.
thanks!

+ Rhino136 on July 8th, 2010 at 2:50 pm said:

Game looks fun but it does not look “every bit as good as the trailer”. The designs for Hulk and Ironman look pretty bad, and Captain America looks less than impressive. Wolverine, Chris Redfield, and Dante are the only ones that look awesome if you ask me(graphically).

I can’t wait for EVO. Quick question. Last year Sony sponsored the event, why not this year? Given that the PS3 has been the platform of choice for most the fighting games there, why not have a huge presence like at the L.A. Fight Club?

expect a timed or exclusive demo of marvel vs capcom 3 on ps3 come on sony, capcom or marvel make it happened before the released date of this awesome game:-)

+ Berae on July 8th, 2010 at 7:35 pm said:

It looks awesome but I wish you would have changed some moves of characters that were in the old Marvel VS capcom because right now like iron man hes doing the same moves as he was like 10 years ago, changes would have been nice. it’s like the new Mortal kombat, they are using the same moves too again with the old characters.


39

+ nahum24 on July 8th, 2010 at 8:18 pm said:

That game looks so awesome and i love Dante’s amazing moves in that game. I hope they would add Nero, Trish, Gloria, and Lady from Devil May Cry 4 on MVC3.

+ King_DX on July 8th, 2010 at 9:29 pm said:

A few quick things from somebody who stood in line for hours to play at E3.
Chris is already overpowered.
Guile better be in this game.
Side note sure would like to see DeeJay, Balrog or Bishop.
I hope Iron Zangief makes a return.
If Gambit makes a return, lets see some stat changes to him.
Please keep server bot away from this game.
If we see Megaman it should be X.
Frank West seems like a waste of a character, if hes in the game.
That is all.

+ angelspawn77 on July 8th, 2010 at 9:49 pm said:

looks AWESOME!!!! Cant wait for this game! By the looks of it im gonna love using Dante, i loved whooping up on demons in dmc with insane combos, I wonder if the controls for Dante in this game will be relatively the same as in the dmc games? If so then im gonna kick some major a**. Deadpool is looking awesome too, I would have liked if they had put in Leon instead of Chris though :/ Hopefully they add Leon too, cant wait to see more characters.

+ ClearClover on July 9th, 2010 at 1:48 am said:

Can’t wait for MVC3.

It’d be awesome if they added Wesker, Amaterasu and Zero (MM Zero) to Capcom’s side.

Domino would be cool for Marvel side, she’s got luck superpowers, how cool is that?

Hope it doesn’t have less characters then Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE KEEP BB. HOOD!! She was one of my FAV characters!!Who you know brings out an ARMY OF GOONS with ROCKET LAUNCHERS AND OOOZZIES AND AK’S as a SUPER COMBO…:p and if she isnt in it..PLEASE ADD THAT TO A HOT CHICK CHARACTER COMBO – like BLACK WIDOW :p

+ rmx687 on July 9th, 2010 at 9:35 am said:

I don’t like how they talked about the new visual style bringing comics to life, because the Marvel characters do not look like comic illustrations at all. In fact, that’s what the original X-Men vs. Street Fight -> Marvel vs. Capcom 2 series did best, that was exactly how they looked in the books and this is not it.

Honestly this is all coming off as Capcom recycling fighting engines again. Mortal Kombat is going to destroy the crap out of this game.

+ QuietstormRB on July 9th, 2010 at 9:35 am said:

Game looks fantastic day one purchase for me. I’m looking forward to seeing Spider-Man in action. Will some/all of the characters have alternate costumes? Symbiote suit Spider-Man FTW!!! The original Iron Man costume there are so many possibilities.
