The most recent issue of Game Informer has leaked out, and inside were some of the first actual gameplay details of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 along with the first in-game screenshots and some more confirmed characters.
From the sounds of it, those who played the most recent entry in the Vs. series, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, will feel right at home with Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. The title will be using the same control scheme as Tatsunoko vs. Capcom to try to remain more accessible, but moves like Hyper Combo Cancels, Snap Backs, and Assists remain fully intact.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will also features simplified launch attacks using a single button called the “Exchange Button.” These launch attacks can be countered if the other player successfully predicts the exact attack the player will be using.
Four more characters have been confirmed for the line up. Although in the past, they had been strongly hinted at. From the Marvel side, Dead Pool and Captain America were confirmed. On Capcom’s side, Dante and Felicia were confirmed as well.
Capcom also detailed some basic details for a couple of characters. Chris Redfield will use a Shotgun and a Shock Stick from Resident Evil 5. Dead Pool has a teleport move that starts to malfunction if it is overused.
A few more details were announced about Dead Pool that could make his move set fairly interesting. Dead Pool will have moves that will break the fourth wall. For example, Dead Pool can pull his own health bar from the top of the screen, and then beat his opponents with it.
You can check out the first leaked screen shots after the jump.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is slated for a Spring 2011 release on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
