Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Box Art

This game was released on November 15, 2011 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Capcom’s remake of the fairly well-received Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds brings eight new stages, balance improvements, and various interface and character tweaks. The game increases the total number of playable characters to 50, adding fighters like Strider and Phoenix Wright from Capcom, and Ghost Rider and Hawkeye from Marvel universes.

The online aspect of the game – something that a lot of MvC3 players found lacking – is also getting upgraded, including a new Spectator mode. The core gameplay mechanics remain the same, although there are some changes to the way aerial exchange and X-Factor work.
