During the first day of San Diego Comic Con. Capcom and Marvel announced the upcoming Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. This updated game will retail for $39.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3. The game will add 12 new fighters, along with eight new stages. There will be a host of tweaks to the gameplay and additional features like a Spectator mode to watch online combatant fight.
Now the big thing everyone wants to know, what characters are going to be included. In addition to all the current characters. Strider and Firebrand for Capcom and Hawkeye & Ghost Rider have been officially announced. However due to some snooping fans and a web designer who wanted to work ahead, there were some additional character images found in the directories of the Capcom website for the game. If these images are to be believed then the in addition to the four mentioned we’ll have these characters:
Personally having Ghost Rider and Rocket Raccoon as playable fighters is enough for me. I’m a long time player of MvC 2 and I love MvC 3. The $39.99 price tag isn’t a bad one, I can easily see some Christmas gift cards being used to buy this game. Or just picking it up as a rare treat for myself.
