In my head I just call it Marvel super Heroes 2, I just allow Marvel and Capcom to let it go because Lego have already nabbed that title.
I honestly don’t compare this to U3 in any shape or form other than the recycled assets. It’s like MSH with a tag mechanic, and Capcom characters, and no RNG. Of course U3 players will be salty, but to me this is Capcom doing what they’ve always done, being lazy, and it’s almost always created a gem. That’s why I’ve been on board from the get go, it’s the added aspect of playing the series from the start, as opposed to just recent years.
I remember for almost five years straight all I would watch would be (3S and) MvC2, the game was busted to hell, a Chinese ripoff of a Chinese ripoff, but every single match there was something new you never even dreamed of, and that’s what kept me chasing the game. MvC3 had promise but U3 ruined it for me, and then KBR became Marvel god with three big bodies, not so happy.
This to me is completely refreshing and I can’t wait to get started, the roster is just a sacrifice we had to make to have such different gameplay.
