New Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Screenshots from TGS

Who would win in a fight between The Incredible Hulk and Mike Haggar from Final Fight?  Or between Wolverine and Akuma?  If you’ve ever been a fan of both Marvel comics and Capcom’s library of games, these are questions that you’ve undoubtedly asked yourself at some point, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds was happy to provide answers.  Now, come the 18th of November and the release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, you’ll also be able to see what happens when Ghost Rider picks a fight with... Phoenix Wright?  

The Tokyo Game Show, starting tomorrow, has provided us with some new screenshots of two of the new characters being added to the UMvC3 roster; Iron Fist from Marvel Comics, a martial artist superhero who I am not personally familiar with, and Vergil from Devil May Cry 3.  Vergil should be a great addition, allowing for some heated grudge matches between the DMC brothers, and I can see Iron Fist being a worthy counterpart to the kung fu mastery of Ryu and Akuma.  

In addition to the new characters, the developers of UMvC3 have made some tweaks to the intensely chaotic fighting of the game; according to the press release ‘Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 offers re-balanced gameplay that will provide accessible depth for both newcomers and pros alike.’  It will be interesting to see how some of the game’s more enthusiastic advocates take to such a re-balancing, but if it makes UMvC3 more accessible to newcomers and in general more fun to play, then I’m in favour.
