There Is Still Some Hope For A Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Video Game

There Is Still Some Hope For A Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Video Game News PC Gaming  Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Marvel Capcom

It’s been quite a while since Marvel vs. Capcom 3 came out on PS3 and Xbox 360. While Marvel vs. Capcom 4 won’t be out anytime soon, Marvel is aware that fans have been clamoring for it.

Polygon interviewed Marvel Games vice president Jay Ong. The site asked him about the likelihood of another Marvel vs. Capcom game being made and his answer wasn’t a straight no.

He said: “There’s nothing we can say at this time. Let’s just say that we hear that a lot. We love our fans and we certainly want to please them. Beyond that we can’t say anything at this time. But who knows what the future holds?

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 initially came out in 2011 and was met with critical acclaim. It may not have had a big roster like the second game, but it had names such as Deadpool, Rocket Raccoon and others before they became Box Office stars many years later.

It’s great to see that Marvel is back on board making AAA video games again. For the past few years, they had only concentrated on mobile video games. With Spider-Man PS4 announced at E3 2016, there will be more Marvel games on the way. Hopefully Marvel vs. Capcom 4 is one of them.

      Characters we want in MVC4 (new and old 66-80 or 100 total is enough)…

      Ryu, Wolverine, Morrigan, Iron Man, Chris Redfield, Incredible Hulk, Dante, Deadpool, Captain America, Felicia, Dormammu, Viewtiful Joe, Chun-Li, Doctor Doom, Thor, Amaterasu, Trish, Super Skrull, Spider-Man, Frank West, Psylocke, Axl, Magneto, Nathan Rad Spencer, MODOK, Maximo, Zero, Squirrel Girl, Storm, Rashid, Jill Valentine, Shuma-Gorath, Jean Grey(Phoenix), Phoenix Wright, MEGAMAN X, Cyclops, Captain Marvel(Carol Danvers), Captain Commando, Strider Hiryu, Hawkeye, Hayato, Taskmaster, Hsien-Ko, Sentinel, Kyosuke Kagami, Ghost Rider, Nemesis T-type, Doctor Strange, Vergil, Iron Fist, Mike Haggar, Nova, Rocket Raccoon Albert Wesker, Samanosuke, Blade, M. Bison, Venom, Asura, Loki, Nilin, Gambit, Black Widow, Leon Kennedy, Black Panther, Urien, Ustanak or Jack Krauser, Man Thing, Green Goblin, Shirogane Rekka, Songbird, Takeda Shingen, Black Bolt, Jack or Rouge, Punisher, Nina, Jin Saotome, Nick Fury, Juri, Blackheart, Harp Note, Enchantress, Namor, Lord Raptor, Luke Cage, Tron Bonne, Sinister, Buletta, War Machine, Bass, Falcon, Gene, Thanos, Tabasa, Moon Knight, Talbain, Howard the Duck, Bren Turner, Cable and Ingrid or Ruby Heart.

      Include directional attacks/command normals like 6A, 6B, 6C, 6D, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, etc. Replace X-factor with a new comeback mechanic similar to Blazblue Chrono Phantasma called OVERDRIVE, and take notes on the Takemikazuchi battle especially Saya to implement it on the Silver Surfer while helping Galactus, and that Cosmic Eater needs to move more, or make Living Tribunal, Eternity, Beyonder, or the Celestials as Final Boss/es. especially teleporting himself on the left not staying in right stuck to his feet. Also do some extensive research on Megaman just like Masahiro Sakurai did. TAKE NOTES ON THIS COMMENT CAPCOM! AND LEARN FROM IT!

        There are already 80 must have characters. There is no way we can fit in Chris Redfield,Felicia, Dormammu, Amaterasu, Nathan Rad Spencer, MODOK, Maximo, Squirrel Girl, Rashid, Jill Valentine, Shuma-Gorath, Captain Marvel(Carol Danvers), Captain Commando, Strider Hiryu, Hawkeye, Hayato, Hsien-Ko, Ghost Rider, Nemesis T-type, Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Mike Haggar, Nova, Rocket Raccoon, Samanosuke, Blade, Asura, Loki, Nilin, Black Widow, Leon Kennedy, Black Panther, Urien, Ustanak or Jack Krauser, Man Thing, Green Goblin, Shirogane Rekka, Songbird, Takeda Shingen, Black Bolt, Jack, Punisher, Nina, Nick Fury, Juri, Blackheart, Harp Note, Enchantress, Namor, Lord Raptor, Tron Bonne, Sinister, Buletta, Falcon, Gene, Thanos, Tabasa, Moon Knight, Talbain, Howard the Duck, Bren Turner, Cable and Ingrid as DLC. Directional attacks and OVERDRIVE are good ideas. But after the 80 must have characters get featured there won’t be room for that many more. 100 characters would be great, but that is really pushing it.

          At least we can test it. There is no way we can determine how powerful PS4/Neo, Xbox One/Scorpio and NX or how far we pushed these consoles to the limits.

            The budget is the real concern.

    5 Reasons why MVC4 should happen…

    1. I’m sick of the Smash Bros 4 era we lived in it’s time for the king of crossovers to be back! (Also disappointed for no Ice Climbers or Snake and same Final Smashes for clones) Niitsuma should have helped Sakurai…

    2. UMVC3 still exists in EVO. Why on earth didn’t Disney or Marvel stopped this like Nintendo attempted to stop Melee Tournaments LOL?! We need MVC4 badly…

    3. I’m sure Disney wants to spread to joy and influences of Marvel as like with Star Wars. They have good movies!

    4. Sony duh see Spdiey in Civil War? Also MVC should redeem itself and win back the crowd just like Bringing Karin and R. Mika back in SFV… Who knows old characters like Blackheart and Venom can come back as well…

    5. This petition if you want MVC4 support and sign! https://www.change.org/p/walt-disney-i-want-mvc4-to-happen

    5 Reasons why MVC4 should not happen…

    1. After the release of this game (Contest of Champions), Marvel banned all X-Men & Fantastic Four characters (Deadpool included) from appearing in any new games. The only exceptions are remasters or ports of games made prior to Contest of Champions. Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch can still be used, but only on a case-by-case basis. So while yes, Marvel can use those characters in games if they wanted to, it’s more of the fact that Marvel doesn’t want to. They only want the Avengers, Guardians, Inhumans, or any other franchise they can use in the MCU to be associated with the Marvel brand. This is why Marvel is distancing themselves from the X-Men & the Fantastic Four. If that is true that it don’t have Wolvie, Deadpool, Magneto, Sentinel, Storm, Cable, Cyclops, Gambit, Blackheart, Psylocke, Jean Grey, etc. NO DEAL! Also Capcom you better put back Jin and Hayato!

    2. Same goes for Megaman characters especially if it doesn’t include a playable true blue Megaman like Classic, X, or Rock Volnutt. (It will be the reason to jump ship to Smash 5 again)

    3. Niitsuma and his team should not be involved! Aside from ruining the control schemes for competitive players/MVC2 fans(Although I’m impressed with implementing the entire roster with unique movesets and diversity), His excuses(especially removing Megaman or not putting Black Panther) is intolerable. I want new developers and a new director that has the power of giving the fans what they want(like Masahiro Sakurai) while implementing unique movesets(like Ryota Niitsuma)

    4. DC Fans hyping up Injustice 2! Let us wait for their release of that game and it’s copies sold before MVC4 comes to fruition. If Injustice 2 beats Marvel’s butt in terms of video games MVC4 will come lol if not and they still won’t listen then all hope is lost.

    5. Fox fans vs MCU fans arguments… SFV “failing”… Negative Nancies saying it won’t happen…
