FOLLOWING a lengthy absence, the Marvel vs Capcom series is returning for its third outing entitled Fate of Two Worlds.
Building upon the success of the second instalment, Fate of Two Worlds utilises an advanced version of the MT Framework engine, previously used in Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2.
Once again superheroes and Capcom characters go head-to-head in three-on-three battles.
Capcom’s UK product manager Karl Reader says: “Marvel vs Capcom 3 brings together the greatest names from both universes in epic three-on-three tag team battles. The game art style brings to life the distinctive style of comic books whilst remaining faithful to the original character visuals. It’s true fan service.
“It’s been over 10 years since Marvel vs Capcom 2 first appeared on the Dreamcast, so anticipation and demand hasn’t been this big since our blockbuster launch of Street Fighter IV back in 2009.”
Wolverine or Wesker?
For fans of Marvel, playable fan favourites include Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine while the Capcom roster includes the likes of Street Fighter's Ryu, Resident Evil's Albert Wesker and Devil May Cry's Dante.
With over 35 fighters to choose from – each having their own unique ending to the game – players are spoilt for choice.
To support the game, Capcom is running ads on the Disney XD and Marvel websites to target younger consumers, while TV ads will appeal to older gamers.
Retail pre-order goodies include t-shirts and comics, while a GAME UK sampling tour will pull in more buyers. There will also be a steel book special edition.
