Capcom Takes You For A Second Ride With “Ultimate Marvel VS. Capcom 3”

Completely out of left field, Capcom has announced an upgrade to Marvel VS. Capcom 3, entitled Ultimate Marvel VS. Capcom 3.

According to Amazon, the new game features

  • ULTIMATE ROSTER: Twelve new legends from Marvel and Capcom join the fray, bringing the total roster of characters up to 50.
  • MORE LEGENDS: Includes the first fighting game appearance of some of the most iconic and celebrated characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes, including Strider and Firebrand from the Capcom side and Ghost Rider and Hawkeye from the Marvel universe.
  • NEWLY BALANCED: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 offers re-balanced gameplay that will provide accessible depth for both newcomers and pros alike.
  • ENHANCED MODES: After many fan requests, Spectator mode is now available as part of an overall improved online experience along with other new modes and enhancements.
Additionally, the new game will come with an Amazon pre-order bonus of
Pre-order Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and get the New Age of Heroes Costume Pack; First Strider, Dr. Doom Doomwar, Classic X-men Sentinel, and Mechanical Akuma. Access code will be e-mailed within two business days after your order ships. Offer valid when shipped and sold by, while supplies last. Limit one per customer.
While Capcom loves to update their fighting games, Marvel VS. Capcom 3 was presumed to be a weak sales game. Additionally, tweets indicated that the title was finished, with only one costume pack released, and two characters added. Ultimate looks to add Hawkeye, Firebrand, Ghost Rider, and Strider. Amazon has the trailer.
The game will release November 15th, 2011. No word if, like Arcade Edition of Super Street Fighter IV, the game will be available as DLC for a discounted price.
