  1. a developer said that there would be no characters from the fantastic 4 universe, so Dr. Doom is a no go.

  2. if its not in 2d it’s just going to be a lame duck. The reason that it’s such an epic game is the sheer speed that it ran at. That and the popularity of the new hd revival on ps3 and 360. you would have thought they’d get the gist of it.

    Seriously. Imagine Marvel vs Capcom 3
    in hd styled blazblue glory!!!

    MMMMMMmm.. superfluid 2d animation…

    now that would be amazing!!

  3. yea but with the new found success of Tatsunoko vs Capcom for the Wii which plays very much the same as the MVC series, it seems they’ll go in that direction of 2D-3D.

    I personally don’t mind if the game runs at the same speeds as MVC2
