I remember how a few years ago, Niitsuma stated that if he was in charge of a new MVC game, he would try to bring back every character from at least the Capcom side.

Damn.

I would gladly pick BB Hood, Hsien Ko, Donovan, Anarkis or Sasquatch over Jedah.
Well good for you. Jedah fits a pla style niche that Capcom doesn't have and a better design than the rest of these characters. BB Hood, Hsien Ko and Anarkis have already been in a VS game, let some body new in. Also he's the big bad of a game, and not a rando jobber like Sas (even tho I'd love Sas too.)

Even as a Monster Hunter fan, a Hunter was the last thing I wanted to see repping the brand on a roster of a game like this. Not when someone like Rajang could be a nice "big" char, or a Felyne Prowler as an opposite for Rocket.

Ah, well...hopefully, what we get is fun to play. But so many losses...

If no X-Men at launch was bad, now we get no Defenders...

Daredevil and Psylocke were my most wanted characters since Ultimate, it seems this won't happen anytime soon.

This can't be real. No Scarlet Witch and Black Widow? Seriously? You can't fit the full members of the Avengers in this?

Companies like making money, I don't get the shock or anger here
You think they money they'll make from DLC will balance out with the initial purchases? I imagine making a quality product would result in a better profit. The word of mouth compounded with previous games having a poor reputation can't possibly be worth it.

People still seem to have the weird idea that game companies are their friends and want to make games FOR them.

I'm willing to bet that the game still sells just fine, even with a disappointing starting roster.

Uh it's cool if you like Jedah I'm just personally disappointed with it

Disappointing roster, it lacks that spice of obscure picks like MODOK or Shuma. Everything hinges on gameplay, though, and roster issues can be ameliorated with DLC.

Damn.
The only reason I actually want him back 6 months ago because I had a gut feeling we would see so many cuts.

This list really emphasizes how great and unique some of the UMvC3 characters were on the Capcom side. A lot of them not being included is just heartbreaking.

Viewtiful Joe
Amaterasu
Phoenix Wright
Vergil
Wesker

All such fun/interesting characters to play as. DLC plans better be massive for this... I want that crazy 50-character final roster!

The Capcom side is missing a character, but it’s probably someone like Frank West.
This list is "safe" as fuck. I am disappoint.

I can understand the first part being weird...

But the second part? Who the fuck is Capcom making this game for if not for their customer base? Capcom sure as shit isn't making a game that Capcom and Marvel want to play... they have to make a game that most people would want to buy and play.

If the reaction we see in this thread is what most of other people feel then Capcom has failed in this product.


I am one of the biggest VS fans out there along with being a HUGE Capcom fan along with being a fan of Marvel superheroes AND I like fighting games. I am dead center within the demographic of people who should be buying this game day 1.. this game does not excite me enough to put down $60 on it day 1. Like I actually have to pause to think about it. This roster is not a good look for Capcom at all and I am also one of those people who think game play matters more than roster. It does matter more.. but roster still makes a big chunk of what makes fighting games sell.

Roster in it's current state shows a lot of diverse gameplay styles so I'm fine with that and it still looks like the game will be fun, so I'm definitely still in even if the demographics are not ideal (but we knew that would be the case, with MCU base and no X-Men/FF).

What's the word on Doom/Super-Skrull/Silver Surfer, though? Still likely the three for the first season pass?

Yep, I'm out. Was going to go all out for the collector's edition, but nope, not worth it now. If anything, maybe it won't sell and I can pick it up anyway for cheap.

Strange timing as I just got an email from Marvel that I'll be getting a free pass to E3 (I got the offer as a Marvel Unlimited member, I entered thinking why the hell not). Do not sure how I'm supposed to feel right now.

Perhaps poorly worded, but I meant that game companies do not have your best interests in mind, only theirs.

The fighting styles presented are fine. Nemesis being back is dope. I guess my main problem is that it's 28 characters. I expected a lot of veteran characters just not that few newcomers. If it was 32-36 cool but eh
