Watch Fighting Game Masters at EVO, Play Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PS3

Wes Phillips's Avatar Posted by PR Manager, Capcom

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.

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.

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.

I love this game. But I want to get my hands on Mortal Kombat 9 now. Please show us an interview with NetherRealms, if you have one. If you don’t have one, go make one now! I will probably sell all my games for MvC3 and MK9.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is nothing but a button masher. Tekken 6 and Super Street Fighter 4 are going to ‘still’ be the best, even know Marvel vs. Capcom 3 could already be made. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was lame, so i bet anything Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be lame and doll after awhile too. I’m not one to say there doing wrong making a poor game or not but capcom could be making so type of resident evil remake not a cheesy fighting game you’ll only enjoy for 5 whole mins.

I find it odd that Melty Blood is included but not BlazBlue.

Games looking awesome, but i got a question for after release:

Would you keep on adding new characters for sale on PSN?
or Stages?
alternate costumes?

how we will get motivated to keep playing it after we beat it the first time?

and such strange random questions ^.^’
