Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Adds 12 Characters, Spectator Mode and More in November

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 launches this November, an enhanced re-release of the epic crossover fighting game released on PS3 and Xbox 360 earlier this year. The Ultimate version will feature eight new stages, a refined and rebalanced fighting system, an online Spectator Mode, and 12 new combatants, including the likes of Ghost Rider, Hawkeye, Firebrand and Strider.

It’s a bit shady of Capcom to already be re-releasing a game within the same calendar year, especially when features like the Spectator Mode and gameplay refinements seem like they should come to existing owners as part of a free patch. But at least it’ll be carrying a cheaper price of $39.99, so if you trade in your old copy you can probably get the new edition for around as much as Capcom would likely charge for this content as DLC.

Up top is a new trailer introducing the new fighters while also getting players reacquainted with the existing roster, and below are four gameplay clips spotlighting the four newcomers that have been announced thus far.
