Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to Decide the Fate of Two Worlds Next Year

Marvel vs. Capcom fans have been waiting a long time for this. After last year’s PSN and XBLA re-release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and 10 years since the original version hit arcades, a third installment has finally been announced.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, in development for PS3 and Xbox 360, is the first true sequel in the popular crossover fighting game franchise in a decade, as I already mentioned. Built upon an advanced version of the MT Framework engine also used to power Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2, MvC3 is said to blur the lines between 2D and 3D graphics (like Street Fighter IV, I presume) with a “living comic book art style.”

Other than that, the game sounds like vintage Marvel vs. Capcom, complete with an evolved three-on-three tag-team fighting system, over-the-top combos and a roster of over 30 characters.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is slated to ship in spring 2011.
