On the verge of release of “Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3,” Capcom-Unity released the change notes for every Marvel character (sans premiering) in this revision.
For players who have followed the competitive “Marvel vs. Capcom 3” scene since its January release, one of the most intimidating characters was Phoenix due to how capable she becomes when turned to Dark Phoenix. In “Ultimate,” Jean Grey’s health decreased from 420,000 to 375,000 (for both forms) and her air TK shot prevents her from doing other special moves such as teleporting.
Wolverine was another character that was challenging to fight against. His reliable dive kick would receive a hit box reduction, making it less of a priority move, and his ‘Berzerker Slash’ is now vulnerable. He did receive some new interesting features such as a rapid-pressing attack called ‘Berzerker Rage’ and his hyper combos can now gain more hits with rapid button presses.
For the full list of buffs and nerfs of all the existing characters in the Marvel side, check out Capcom-Unity. Capcom’s characters are still pending. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be available on Nov. 15 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
