Rumor: 'Marvel Vs Capcom 3'?
Posted By: John Manalang - Friday, July 25, 2008 3:02 PM

Here's a hot buzz fighting game fanatics won't want to miss. During Comic-Con, Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige was asked by IGN if a new Marvel vs Capcom title will soon see the light of day, as he replied, "Yes. And maybe sooner than you think."

Of course, there is no way that Feige's statement above could be a confirmation of a new working title, as much as we hope it was. The last Marvel and Capcom character brawl, which started with X-Men vs Street Fighter in 1998 (US), was the coin-op favorite Marvel vs. Capcom 2 in 2000.

As far as current projects, Capcom's polishing up Street Fighter IV for its US release next year, coming to the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. Check out our hands on demo of the game from last week's E3.

IGN: New Marvel vs Capcom title on the way?

Isn't Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom based on anime characters vs. capcom characters? no marvel characters in that game. but the new graphics look like the new prince of persia game coming out. it still looks sick

Wow........sure hope is true. Not a lot of info but is good enough to keep me believing...

Is that Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom?

Posted by btnkdrms - Friday, July 25, 2008 6:17 PM
Oh ... BTW

for the one or two ppl on here praying that the game sticks to its 2D roots - Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was 3D with 2D sprite animation Over top of the invisible 3D models.

I would like to see them go for that and make the character models as high res and tasty looking as those backgrounds - crunchy sprites give me gas

No SF4 graphics please.

Some games just need to stay PURELY 2D.

Posted by Juicelee - Friday, July 25, 2008 4:37 PM
i would love to see this game get made with twice as many characters, street fighter 4 graphics AND online play

it would be the end of the world for everyone

Posted by jmanalang - Friday, July 25, 2008 4:32 PM
me too

I think I pee'd a little.

Posted by jgny32 - Friday, July 25, 2008 4:14 PM
Please for the sack of god and everyone else MAKE THIS GAME!!!! i love this seris i have the whole collection. $80 for mvc2 and it was worth it i would pay $100 for mvc3

Posted by Slash5150 - Friday, July 25, 2008 3:56 PM
If they do make an MVC3 my only request is that it stays strictly 2-D

Posted by lionheartx8 - Friday, July 25, 2008 3:49 PM
This is arguably the greatest arcade fighting game sans street fighter 2, and definitely my all time favorite, if capcom decides to grant over a million gamers their dreams and create the sequel ill be first on line, in fact imagine this game online! Im curious as to the new things they could add to the already incredible game, hopefully itll be even more characters! Dante vs Deadpool! Thor vs Wayne Holden! Hopefully they put in the muay thai king Sagat! TIGER UPPERCUT!

Posted by Valentinog - Friday, July 25, 2008 3:47 PM
I hope the Rumors are true...Ive been waiting for this title for so long. This game is going to be the ULTIMATE BADA** FIGHTING GAME OF ALL TIME!!! Cant wait.

i hope it's true.
