Because the game is coming out next year, i figured it would be best to request this feature now. Combos, based off the initial gameplay trailer, involve your partner tag canceling. However deep tag canceled combos will get may change during development, but so far it looks like the partner gets to chain for a small period of time.

Pair play is a feature that allows four players to fight against each other. Two per team. I think this would be a fun option because it encourages teamwork.

    I agree, Tekken Tag always has this as an option in the series.
    I'm not saying it should be the tournament standard, but IT IS a selling point towards potential mainstream buyers and not too mention, it's just fun.

    That shit should be in any fighting game to be honest, tag system or not.
    Being able to play with your scrubby friends and having fun, instead of destroying them for 15 minutes and then playing something else would be a nice addition to any fighter if you ask me.

    This is a good point. Offline and online pair play would be a great way to teach casuals about the game instead of straight up beating their ass. It would also take the pressure off of learning two characters at once.

    I mean don't get me wrong, I doubt that many people would make use of this but having a lot of modes is never a bad thing in a fighter even though the competitive community won't give shit about them, but thinking back when I was playing Tekken 3, I'd go through all of those stupid modes, unlock everything and only got mildly competitive when I saw that a couple of my friends had Tekken 3 winner stays on sessions on the weekends, which led me to trying to learn the game with a Prima guide xD.

    The abundance of modes and unlockables alone is what's gonna make casual players tell their friends that this game rocks n shit, and I feel like pair play is not only a gimmick but enriches the game.
    Hope they put in a ton of modes and unlockables and make it a game that appeals to all gaming crowds.

    As an added feature to the game I wouldn't be opposed to this idea. Players with similar playing styles can make a lot of noise being on the same page all the time, and it would be interesting to see what kinds of combinations grow from it.
    I'm sorry. Humor me!!

    SFxT had this option both offline and online, it would be at least weird for Capcom to not add this once more, especially since MVCI is 2vs2 instead of MVC3's 3vs3

    Something like this was in Street Fighter x Tekken. I'd love to see it again for Marvel, specially since they are making a push to be more casual and open ended for casual fans... I knew so many people 3 weeks after the launch of Vanilla who sold and quit the game and never returned because of the learning curve and online being so unforgiving, (It's okay by me tbh). But then they had already beat arcade mode and unlocked the vanilla unlockables and had nothing left to do, being too scared to play online. Hoping more modes and a deep story mode is in to help casuals stick around and eventually stay for the long haul. (For me, training and mission mode was enough, but more is always better right?)

    It would amazing to see Duo Team Attack make a return. That way, both players control both characters and mixups similar to that of Cross Assault can be achieved.

    I agree. Would love 2v2 4 players. But not just tag... how about 4 characters at same time on screen like SFXT? 2 share a common metre.

    Unlike in SFxT where in simultaneous 2v2, projectile people used to win, here people can use teleports and all sorts of things to stop zoners which were OP in SFxT 2v2.

    Lol, basically infinite Duo Team Attack. Much salt will be had once we discover the equivalent of Duo War Machine in this game.

    With all the Marvel movies I don't doubt this game will sell well.

    This mode though would possibly be the icing on the cake, it would add that smash party game feeling. The more people involved the less competitive things tend to be because each individuals competitiveness streak differs but thats what the casual audience would love about it.

    One person could be really good while the other sucks, it would still be fun on both ends even in all four players suck.

    Honestly one of the most fun i've had with a FG was doing pair play on SFxT, didn't matter if my friend was bad or good at the game, even the losses were fun.
    This absolutely needs to be added in MvC:I.

    Pair Play tag teams were extremely common in SFxTK online. I did it pretty often.

    So now that more gameplay has surfaced, what do you think of the potential for pair play in the mechanics? The new Counter Switch seems great because it encourages cooperation from both players to save one another.

    It's honestly a no brainer to add pair play. Playing with a buddy on the same team in SFxT was one of the funnest experience i had in a FG.

    Plus, casuals don't like going online, however having a buddy makes the experience more social and less intimidatingto go online and you have a finger to point why you lost lol.
    Though MvC:I seems a game too fast for co-ordinating attacks, unless you have really grinded it with a friend before. If anything it's atleast fun and there are plenty of opportunities to call in your partner.

    It is literally the easiest thing ever to have people with controllers press the home button. We've had 5plyr local matches in WWE 2k16. Four guys in Tekken Tag 2. NBA Jam. Perfect Dark. We have never an issue ever playing with four guys on Xbox One. Should be the same on PS4.

    I have never heard of or experienced this specific criticism. Ever.

    Four arcade sticks, hitboxes, third party wired controllers. The console does not have enough USB ports for that and hubs have the potential to add extra input lag, which will probably be 6.5f again.

    I never factored in input delay in USB hubs because I figured they just pass through the signal from the console but you could be right.

    Now Tech Talk gotta test USB hubs... We'll see "gaming" hubs advertised on tournament streams.

    So as the days get closer to launch, Capcom being quiet about gameplay modes concerns me. We have not heard anything about modes besides what was announced in the press release and the Story/Versus demo.

    We should continue to make a push for it on social media. If not at launch, then as free dlc.
