Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a 2.5D fighting game developed by Capcom for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. It features 3v3 tag team-based battles and an elaborate single-player story with unique endings for each character.

MvC3 includes a lot of playable characters from both Marvel and Capcom universes, such as Iron Man, Hulk, Deadpool and Wolverine from Marvel, and Dante, Ryu, Chun-Li and Wesker from Capcom worlds. You can find the full list on the official website.

The game has a simplified control scheme with 3 buttons for light, medium and hard attacks, as well as a new Exchange button used to launch enemies into the air and switch characters in the middle of an air combo.  Marvel vs Capcom 3 also offers a Simple Mode that allows noobs inexperienced players to execute some special moves much easier, but severely limits the overall number of specials and supers available.
