Capcom Unity is doing a LIVE STREAM of Marvel vs Capcom 3 right now! What are you waiting for? Check it out! UPDATE: The stream is over, but the archive of the stream is still available.
Seth Killian was on hand answering questions from fans and doing some light character walkthroughs, along with explaining various gameplay mechanics.
• Seth laughed off the statements that Frank West and Human Torch weren't included because of technical reasons, (RAM limitations) saying that they're programmers are more than capable of setting characters on fire, he used Super-Skrull's flame Hyper move as an example. This debunks one of the rumors floating around.
• When they asked the fans which characters they thought would be revealed at Jump Festa soon, most people responded Hsein-Ko and Phoenix. A Capcom employee said to remember that and wait for what happens, saying "If that doesn't happen will it disprove the rumor?"

EBGames.com and Gamestop.com says that if you purchase the collector's edition for $69.99 you will be able to download two playable DLC Characters — Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine.
We are all ready to get our hands on Marvel vs Capcom 3. Most of us have been waiting 10 years to do so. With Marvel vs Capcom 3 just around the corner, I've been checking up on it as much as possible. It seems that EBGames.com and Gamestop.com have the first collectors edition of the game available for pre order. With a price tag of $69.99 that is solid deal. Seeing as every new collectors edition nowadays cost $99.99!
The best part is that the collectors edition comes with 2 downloadable characters Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath! Now I can have my complete Resident Evil Team (Chris, Wesker, and Jill)
Check out what will be in the collectors edition below.
• Steelbook case featuring exclusive art work.
• Comic/Art book- A 12-page prologue comic, written by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, plus campaign art and a curated selection of fan art.
• 1-month Subscription to Marvel Digital Comics, providing unlimited online access to Marvel content.
• People who pre-order through GameStop will receive MvC3 console decals created by Fathead. Also, character cards with a move list and descriptions.
Is anyone going to grab this collectors edition? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
It appears that Ryota Niitsuma, Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, has disconfirmed Sentinel in an interview conducted with Eurogamer Espana (Google Translate link), which was originally written in Spanish.
This normally wouldn't be too big of a deal, but someone posting under the name Lupinko has been leaking information about MvC3 for some time, and has been extremely accurate to date, revealing numerous characters in advance. He claimed Sentinel and Hsien-Ko would be announced, but Niitsuma's statement today goes directly against one of his predictions.
Here's a translated version of the relevant paragraph from RyanCE.
Ryota Niitsuma: Indeed, we could not choose characters that were not on [Marvel's] list, and if there were some we wanted to use Marvel told us "do not pick that, take this one instead." In this sense, we wanted to bring back a couple of characters from MvC2, such as Juggernaut and Sentinel, but we could not.
Many people are currently split over who to believe on this since Lupinko has been so accurate to date, but Niitsuma is the title's producer.
Other things of note from the article include:
• The first DLC package won't be expensive. When asked about the schedule for DLC, Niitsuma said they haven't already planned this, but, "Potentially we could release a DLC [package] every two weeks..."
• Niitsuma talks about the possibility of releasing a balance patch once the game has launched, although Capcom has made other statements like this in the past for the Street Fighter 4 series, saying they can patch the game after wards, if needed.
• There's at least one character to be revealed besides the 36 member roster. This might be Galactus, as an unplayable boss.

Once again, and again and again, Desk shows us that MVC3 is full of some pretty bad glitches, many causing timeouts.
The Zero Glitch is simple, when using Zero's shadow move while doing Sougenmu, use snapback. The enemy and the assist have to be comboed together though, and you need 2 bars. The enemy never comes out, if you have a life lead...you win by time out. With all of the glitches Desk, and Renic have been finding (with much more to come by Desk), this game is pretty broken. Like, these glitches are fairly easy to pull off, even online. Fortunately someone hasn't abused it against me yet, what do you guys think of all of this?

At this point I dont know what to think but it looks legit to me..........what do you guys think?
I REALLY hope this is real becuz M.bison OWNS.................PSYCHO CRUSHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gouki.com got to play Marvel VS Capcom 3 all day. Check out our thoughts and these exclusive gameplay videos.
After playing Marverl VS Capcom 3 all day long yesterday. I sit here today only wanting to play more. MvC3 is one of the most spectacular looking video games I've seen in years. The colors and effects on screen are simply amazing. Capcom, Marvel have out done themselves. Marvel VS Capcom 3 is the sequel fans have wanted for over 10 years.
The character selection is great, there's a ton of classic characters you can use like Magneto and Captain America. The new characters are strange, but I'm really glad that both companies did some reaching. For example The Dog and the Bionic Commando Jimmy from Capcom and M.O.D.O.K. and TaskMaster from the depths of Marvels character catalog. Really cool stuff.
DLC characters in the future also have tons of potential, unless Shuma and Jill are the disc. If they are on the disc we could be screwed, but if not well then that opens the door for more characters to be downloadable content. There was rumor of M. Bison being in the game, but that could have been Photoshoped right? MvC2 had over 50 characters, I expect this roster to grow too.
Something I didn't like for instance were the stages, there's only like 6-7 stages to do battle on. You can't do versus on Galactus' stage, which doesn't make sense to me. No spectator mode is a really bad idea. I think that not haveing a spectator mode turns the game into more of a party game with friends in house, other than playing online. I'm not gonna sit on a blank screen while I wait for others to fight. Why does Capcom go backwards with some of these designs. It's odd to me that you can't do versus against the computer, practicing in training mode and doing the trials will only take you so far. Although the best experience you're probably going to get is online. Get ready for that Dante, Wolverine and Deadpool match up every time. Don't be a Jimmy!
Finally we were lucky enough to capture a few matches:

I don't really get whats wrong with the decision of characters in Marvel Vs Capcom 3.
Now everyone has been anticipating the charcarters for Marvel VS Capcom 3. And they say with every week there should be a new character. But it seems like they are deconfirming more than they are announcing. Its easier for us to cross out a lot of people and get closer to the final list. Also the way they decide if a character is gonna be in it or not doesn't make sense. Like with Strider Hiryu, "Strider Hiryu is popular overseas as well, we took him out of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, because he didn't fit in with its concept." Am I the only one who thinks what the fuck are you thinking. He's popular and you can build more moves onto him. He doesn't fit in with its concept? Look at the game you have tentacle monsters(Shuma Gorath) and a fat head on a jetpack ( M.O.D.O.K). How do those fit into the concept? I'm not a really big fan of Strider but it doesn't click with me that they are deconfirming characters that I believe would be really fun to play (Phoenix Wright, Silver Surfer, etc) Any thoughts on this?

I don't even know why I'm still posting these. Here's another video is Desk showing off something ridiculous. But I think it's worth watching because of Cap's reputation of being a " bad character"
Many people don't play Captain America. He has good strength and techniques but he just doesn't seem to cut it out for most. Behold one of the easiest infinites you will ever see. It is basically sweep into shield slash spam. Can be comboed into super or snapback easily. Requires no meter, assist or xfactor. So far it works on 35/16 of the roster and on some characters you may need to throw in a jumping SS to continue the combo. Enjoy and leave a comment below ;)

A very short interview with Marvel vs Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma was done by Videogamer.com. It talks about why Frank West was cut from the game, and that Phoenix Wright was considered. Check it out.
The interview is very short so I'm just going to paste it below with some added photos.
Given his presence in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Dead Rising's Frank West was a shoe-in for Marvel vs Capcom 3, but that's not the case. Producer Ryota Niitsuma has explained that Frank was cut from the game's roster at a late stage, despite the work that had already been put into his character.
"As for Frank West, he was actually in the process quite deep, and in one of our high quality CG trailers he was actually part of it," Niitsuma told VideoGamer.com at the end of last week. "But we've taken him out, due to the fact that we've foreseen some extra work involved, just from the nature of his moves. We felt we could direct our resources to better use, so we've taken Frank out."
Another Capcom favourite who hasn't made the line-up is plucky lawyer Phoenix Wright. But while Wright may not be naturally suited to the fighting genre, Niitsuma seems happy to consider his future inclusion - provided that MvC3 gains a following.
"Phoenix Wright is obviously a famous franchise - especially in Europe, actually. It would be interesting to see him, although he distinctively lacks the number of moves he might have [in a fighting game]. But if Marvel vs. Capcom 3 does well, he's definitely up on the list as one of the characters to add, given the chance."
What do you Jimmys think? Will Frank West make his appearance as DLC seeing as they put a ton of work in him already? What about Phoenix Wright? I for one have no Objection on his inclusion (see what I did there).
