Publisher Capcom has named its key software slate for the rest of the year and beyond and – as was rumoured yesterday – it’s Marvel vs Capcom 3 that’s leading the way.
The game, the full name of which is Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, will be a disc-based retail SKU and will arrive on Xbox 360 and PS3 in spring of next year.
“We are so pleased to be working with Marvel again,” Capcom’s corporate officer and VP of strategic planning and business development Christian Svensson stated.
“Marvel vs Capcom 3 has been one of the most requested titles for us to produce by our fans. Our Capcom development studio is creating the most epic fighting game ever developed and Marvel’s input into that process has been invaluable.”
