With the announcement that come out of PAX East that there will be a update for Super Street Fighter 4 leaves a question what about marvel?? Does Street Fighter need to be more balance?? Those are the question on people minds right now. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is one of the biggest fighting games still being played online and in the competitive scene. So why did they say no to a update for the game??


Fans have been asking Capcom employees about the possibility of an expansion to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for some time now. Being that Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 will be getting yet another update, the UMvC3 players are curious as to why their game still has not seen any iterations passed Ultimate.

Over on Twitter, a follower asked Ono why SF4 has been updated so frequently and UMvC3 has not. Ono replied stating that there are rights issues that get in the way of further expanding it and that all of the MvC3 rights are not owned by Capcom.

Furthermore, a similar question made its way to the Ask Capcom forum in which Sven stepped in to shed some more light on the matter. Not only does Sven mention the rights issues but also states that those who originally worked on MvC3 are now busy with other projects.

Sven had to say.

I understand the desire (for a UMvC3 update) however as it stands at this moment three things are true:

1. Eighting has no bandwidth to work on anything MvC3 related and has not since that team rolled off the project.

2. Our internal people who worked on MvC3 (like NeoG but others as well) are working on other projects and are not available.

3. We currently have no rights that would allow us to make another expansion.

Given 1 and 2, there’s no point in addressing 3 right now.

Whether this situation changes in the future remains to be seen.
