Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds – further impressions

Some of the Marvel characters

MvC3 is looking great after what we’ve seen at SDCC. With a roster of already 16 playable characters, and at least 14 more characters to be announced, it is no wonder that MvC3 is definitely next year’s most hyped fighter (besides Tekken vs Street Fighter, of course).

Dr Doom, Super-Skrull and the Hulk

For those who haven’t been keeping up, the roster now includes:

Marvel: Captain America, Deadpool, Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, Super-Skrull (replacing the Fantastic Four), Doctor Doom and Wolverine

Capcom: Chun-Li, Amaterasu (from Ookami), Chris Redfield, Dante, Trish, Morrigan, Ryu and Felicia

Everyone loves their buns hot and steaming

I must admit, I really dig the comic book styled effects that pop up in the gameplay trailers, obviously inspired by classic Marvel art. The 3D models also look gorgeous.

Trish and her large... scythe.

Gameplay looks fast and hectic. Effects seem to splatter and cover most of the screen, especially in heated moments, and while this can be a little distracting, for onlookers, it must be quite a marvel (pun not intended). This game is definitely NOT for epileptics.

Amaterasu's take down

Despite using 3D character models, MvC3 will still remain as a 2D fighter, with players only able to move forwards and backwards, and up and down. Like previous installments that there will be also a three-on-three tag team mode, where players choose 3 characters which can be switched in-game at any time. This obviously offers a lot of tactical potential to already robust gameplay.

More Amaterasu action

Like Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, MvC3 will use a simplified 3-button representing low, medium and high attacks. The aim is to “knock down the wall of complicated controls and open up the field of strategic fighting to all comers”. While seasoned players may be a little disappointed, I for one am pretty glad, seeing that I’ve relatively new to the fighter genre.

The power of THOR!

Single player will apparantly be ‘robust’ with a story mode which has unique endings for each character. There will also be online multiplayer.

Shaken, not stirred.

I have never been a fan of fighters, but this game might just break that mold. Here’s to more interesting characters and gameplay modes to be announced~!

      I never forayed into the fighting genre since there wasn’t a game that ever caught my attention. (okay I lied, I did play a bit of Tekken 3 when that was popular, but it was easy to button mash, or use the same combo all the time and still win) MvC2 caught my attention one day due to how flashy the fighting was. And it used 2D sprites. And everyone said it’s great. So I purchased it, and gave it a run. Was it worth it? Yeah, it was. I only have about 6 hours of time in the game, and yet I can already respect how deep the gameplay can be. It’s crazy. Unlike Tekken, each character’s move set is relatively limited, but this is actually a plus – everything comes down to timing of moves, assists, the type of assist, and air combos (which aren’t entirely easy for a beginner like me to pull off). And I’m not even a comics fan, and I haven’t played any of the relevant Capcom games either. Imagine if I had! This would be a wet dream!

    ahahah well….MvC looks a bit too hectic and straining to the eyes for my liking….nevertheless the characters they’ve chosen are quite…interesting, especially Amaterasu. That was VERY unexpected. Time to dish out some animal cruelty on the PS3 >.>
