Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 initially released a number of years ago as an extension of the regular Marvel vs. Capcom 3 release. Just this past December though, not only did we get the reveal of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, but surprisingly got a re-release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for PS4 in December and later for Xbox One and PC. There has been a call for a balancing patch for years and sadly that still isn’t happening, but a patch for the PC version is coming out regardless.
As revealed by the Steam listing for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, a patch update is coming soon to the game on PC. While you may be hoping for some big changes, this isn’t really doing all that much.
-Adds mouse support for menu navigation. (wheel scroll functionality also included.
-Improved compatibility with DirectInput controllers
The two changes coming in this update are simply making the experience smoother controller wise, as you can now use the mouse to select in the menus instead of a controller, as well as the DirectInput compatibility being improved.
The post does end with “please stay tuned,” so now the question is whether that just means on information for when this update goes live or if they are potentially working on additional patches moving forward. Odds are, we won’t see anything too substantial on any changes with the game considering we have Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite said to be coming sometime this year.
However, there’s likely different teams working on the two, so they could always be working on additional issues that could help. Netcode has also been a complaint, so it would be nice if we could get a fix that could help to improve that. Either way, the announced patch will be coming sometime in the near future, so keep an eye out for it.
