Henshin A Go Go, Baby! Viewtiful Joe Thread
ULTIMATE Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - OFFICIAL


Nemesis Assists, Range of LVL3, different Versions of Rocket Launcher Shots, and the range on ALL command grabs(Check if unblockable, too). Guile’D


Assists for Hawkeye, Ghost Rider, Dr. Strange, Fire Brand, and Strider


Assist for everybody new. New alternate colors.


  • Can he cancel Setsuizan or Raikouzen with a lv.3 buster?
  • Does command dashes seem slower?


  • How much faster is j.:h: is? Can you sj than forward or back air dash into j.:h: and is it fast enough so that the beam comes out? (kind of like MVC2).

  • Does j.:s: still causes a ground bounce?

  • Kef


Check for invincibility/super armor on any of Nemesis’ specials and normals/command normals, also check if tentacles are hittable and if they destroy projectiles or not. Grape



I doubt he will be, but if he is…

Other than that. I want to see more Ghostrider/Strange/Nemesis info.


I’m guessing you can’t make it to NY fight club? It would be nice having other SRK’ers report character changes there. Any info requests regarding V. Joe, Ghost Rider, or She-hulk should be directed towards me for now! :slight_smile:


-Thor’s normals (are they still ass)
-Anything X-23 related (talon dives, is her level 3 still unblockable, are her loops still intact)
-Wolverine (is his still retarded)
-Does Storm do seemingly more damage
-Anything Firebrand related (assist, first impression, comparison to other character, etc)



Weskers new move where he throws his sunglasses at the opponent and receives a speed boost. the inputs and overview would be nice. thank you.


Chun-Li: Does Kikosho( :qcf::atk::atk: ) OTG? Do any of her moves OTG?
Ryu: Ryu’s Hadoken and Tatsu assists while he’s powered up in Denjin Mode( :d::d::atk::atk: )


Check on Hsien-Ko for speed changes on movement and attacks, combos involving her multi-hit attacks (Pendulum, j.:h:, s.:h:) to see how severe her hitstun decay is, is canceling out of Pendulum possible via :s: or otherwise, test duration of Rimoukon.

Test range on Nemesis’ Lv. 3, test his health with a few different characters to see if it’s as low as we think it is. BONUS: See if he says “S.T.A.R.S.” or has a special opening with the RE characters.

Test Tron’s Servbot Launcher to see if it shoots any faster.

I’m sorry it’s a lot, but whatever you test, thank you. Noble Cactus


Somebody just make a UMvC3 Q&A thread plz. In a similar format as the old one. PM me when complete and I’ll sticky it. It’ll be nice to keep it organized this time again.



I can change this over to that, or just sticky this one. Though it’s relatively specific.

Also I’ll be updating the list before I sleep tonight.

I’m working on converting this over to a general QA thread, go ahead and continue with the requests while I get everything else compiled.

  • Nemesis: check if his tentacle specials are command grabs, or if they can be blocked. My theory is that there are some long range tentacle normals, but he also has command grab ones.

  • Nemesis: test if his punch rush super has super/hyper armor (like does it last the entire attack or just the first hit or two?)



Check if the medium TK feint on hit is still 1 frame link.

And if they show Iron Fist, please tell me everything @____@

EDIT: Also, check how broken air liberation is with Dormammu lol


fixed title


Thank you good sir. I should have the format and such set later this evening.


Akuma’s tatsu -> Still giant retarded beats everything invisible hitbox surrounding his whole body? Still recover so fast that you can just mash cr.L xx another tatsu after it with no chance of any non-invincible assist or other attack to stop it?

Chun’s Legs -> Still crazy random ass hit boxes flying all over including somehow behind her, above her head, and 1/2 character distance in front of her past where her sprite stops?

Dante’s Gun Super -> Final hit still have a hulk+juggernaut size invisable hitbox surrounding his whole body so that even if you block it and teleport above his head as the final blast thing goes off you get magically hit by the air near him?

As you can tell I think the hitboxes in marvel 3 are the best ever! They all totally make complete and utter sense. Certainly not troll worthy by a long shot.


[S]Spider-Man: Niitsuma said his “webs” are faster and he can cancel his specials into “webs” but made no indication WTF he meant by “webs.” I’m assuming it’s his web glide (UB,UF,DB or DF+H+S) but a definitive answer would be nice.[/S]

She-Hulk: How much armor does she have in her new special? 1-hit? 3-hits? Also does she recover fast enough for any sort of followup?

Hulk: How much armor does he have in his new special? 1-hit? 3-hits? What are the effects of charging it? Does he recover fast enough for any sort of followup?

Spencer: Does the floating state his Death From Above new special puts the opponent in count as your 1 ground-bouncer per combo?

Storm: Can she still call assists while floating?




She can do air specials into other air specials. I think that some guy did air crescent scythe into L talon dive.
