    no - but i did hear initial character count is low 30's. if i had to guess, season pass would be 6-10 characters split across marvel & capcom. really hoping cyclops makes his long overdue return.
  • According to the Game Informer impressions, hope might not be lost for X-Men/FF characters: "[Creative Director of Marvel Entertainment Bill Roseman] wants to make sure fans of all of Marvel properties, including X-Men, were happy. “That heritage is not lost,” he told me." Also, Ryce (who leaked this game), says X-Men and FF characters will be DLC:
    I didn't plan on sharing this just yet, but with the incessant Fox ban discussion I thought I should speak up.

    Yesterday, I was told with complete certainty that X-Men and Fantastic Four characters will be coming… as DLC. It's a done deal.
    fwiw, i heard the same thing

This announcement was incredible. What a way to start the show and UMvC3 available tonight was the sweetest icing on the cake. I was in tears.

There was Ultron at the end too.

Definitely looks like 2v2 with Infinity Gems and maybe assists.

Doesn't seem to have X Men either.


The Steam equivalent of the drunk friend who keeps offering to pay your tab all night.
