THE BUZZ: Capcom took time out of its busy schedule to squash a rumor that an upcoming Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3X is in the pipeline. Senior Vice-President Sven, Capcom’s lover of all things punch infused, put the issue to rest when Capcom’s own message boards began reporting via NeoGaf that yet another entry might be in the works. The claims were based on a piece of artwork revealed with the Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom name overlaid over a huge yellow X. Sven made the point as fine as possible saying, “Just got back from GDC so I’ll make this short: that is completely fake.” and proceeded to close the thread.
EGM’s TAKE: So Sven says Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3X is not going to happen. Are we suppose to believe Capcom has better things to do then make new editions of existing games for yearly re-release? We wouldn’t be shocked one bit if this rumor is based off some new guerrilla marketing tactics to gauge interest and find out who’s gullible enough to pay for this game, yet again. That would be us, right here, in front of the line with the cash in our hands.
