Marvel vs Capcom 3 in development since 2008

By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 22 April 2010 23:51 GMT


Looks like recently announced Captivate 2010 darling MvC3 has been in development a lot longer than one would think.

According to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 producer, Ryota Niitsuma, the fighter has been in development since 2008, and the delay was due to some legal issues before Capcom re-acquired the Marvel license to make the game.

Speaking with GameTrailers, Niitsuma said the delay  had more to do with massive growth and new IP between the two companies, and contract negotiations just took quite a while.

So far, there will be around 30 characters in the game, and more will likely be added to the roster.

Hulk, Iron Man, Wolverine, Chris Redfield, Morrigan Aensland, and Ryu have been confirmed.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is expected to hit stores during spring 2011, and will be a console only release for Xbox 360 and PS3.
