The new website for Capcom’s Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is now live and along with that, your first gameplay footage live from E3!
While it retains the similarities of Marvel Vs Capcom 2, it’s also sadly looking quite like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom with an extremely over the top plastic look. Although Capcom has admitted that some of the characters are not finalized yet, so hopefully by the time the game gets released they’ll be less stiff and plastic looking.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will feature four attack buttons and two assist buttons, but unlike MvC2, the four attack buttons are mapped as light, medium, heavy, and “exchange.” The new “exchange” button is the game’s universal launcher attack which will send your opponent into the air and set them up for more devastating combos. It can also be used in conjunction with the directional pad to bring in a team member to do additional damage.
One new feature added to MvC3 is that when you’re down to your remaining character, a red X will glow next to the characters name giving him a boast in the amount of damages he/she deals in order to make comebacks a bit more plausible (especially if you’re down 1-3!).
MvC3 hits the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Spring 2011… in the meantime, enjoy these early gameplay footages.
