So now that the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Edition has been revealed, some fans are left wondering why there is a new edition coming for the fighter so shortly after the release of the game. After years of waiting for Marvel Vs Capcom 3 fans are getting more than they bargained for with another edition just around the corner. Twelve characters and new stages are great, but many are wondering why this just wasn’t offered as DLC instead. Recently, Ryota Niitsuma said that this was completely out of the Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 team’s hands according to Joystiq.
The producer for the game claims that the Earthquake that hit Japan shortly after the game’s release earlier this year left the team’s development schedule in shambles as well. Deciding to go forward with a disc based option seems to be the best choice for the developer at this point, and Niitsuma claims that there is some content included in the Ultimate Edition that was originally planned for DLC, but it’s about half and half.
I know one option I’d pay good money for is the spectator mode, how a modern fighter can launch without it is really not understandable. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 was revealed just a short while ago, with a subsequent reveal of all 12 new characters from the Marvel and Capcom regimes. The game is scheduled for a fall release.
