Four Marvel vs. Capcom 3 characters confirmed, extra details

May 8, 2010

The newest issue of Game Informer has some new tidbits on the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, including confirming four more characters for the roster in Dante (Devil May Cry), Felicia (Darkstalkers), Captain America and Deadpool.

A few more details on how the game plays and how some characters work were revealed in the article as well, listed below.

  • MvC3 will control similarly to Tatsunoko vs. Capcom in order to be more accessible, but will retain maneuvers like Hyper Combo cancels, Snapbacks and assists, generally aiming to allow strategic fighting to everyone without complicated controls.
  • The game will have the alpha, beta and gamma assist types, just like in Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
  • Simplified launch attacks are universally performed with one button, the Exchange button. Players can slam opponents into the ground by using this button and certain direction to set up combo strings.
  • Players can also hit the Exchange button in midair to tag in other team members on the fly. Tag-ins can be used to counter exchanges from your opponent, providing you use the correct exchange move to input at the same time as your opponent.
  • Deadpool’s teleportation device will malfunction and break if you spam his teleport move. In signature fashion, he also breaks the fourth wall by beating his opponents with his health bar.
  • Chris Redfield uses weapons from Resident Evil 5, such as his shotgun and the “shock stick.”
  • Returning characters seem to have retained their original moves. Wolverine and Hulks’ Supers are shown.

Hitting opponents with his health bar? I’d expect nothing less of Deadpool.
