Alongside all the great content already hitting the PlayStation Vita today, Capcom is releasing Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for the titular handheld.
For those who don’t know about the fantastic Marvel vs. Capcom series, imagine taking all the greatest characters and fighters from both the Marvel and Capcom universes and mashing them together in one giant fighter.
While Capcom might have some raised some ire among gamers over their decision to release Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 so soon after the release of the original, the decision seems to be a good one.
The expanded roster is worth the $40 asking price alone as it adds 12 new characters to the roster bringing the total character above 50. Some of the new characters include fan favorites Phoenix Wright and Rocket Raccoon.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 also adds some much needed balancing tweaks to the main game that make the game far more competitive but easier for new players to ease themselves into the mayhem. Players can also watch the other fighters duke it out live over the Internet with the game’s Spectator mode.
The game’s transition to Vita suffers no harm as its a nearly flawless port of the console versions. The only difference is that players can take the game on the go with them. It’s going to be my preferred version as I love playing fighters on handhelds over consoles.
The reviews so far confirm my suspicions that the game has turned out to be a great treat for portable fighting fans. You won’t want to miss this one, folks. Let Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 take you for a ride.
