From MTV Multiplayer:
Ryota Niitsuma, Producer for MvC3, on how many character will be in the game - “More than ‘Street Fighter 4.’ ‘Super [Street Fighter 4]’?we’ll see. Right now we’re aiming to have more than 30 characters in the game but we’re still in the middle of development. Going forward to the release date we’ll see how many we can fit in. We’d like to add as many as possible”
Seth Killian - “‘Marvel vs. Capcom 2’ had 15 years of sprites to steal from and just sort of throw them in the game?These [‘Marvel vs. Capcom 3’] characters are all not just brand new, but extremely brand new. This is a brand new engine, purely brand new assets, everything else?Bear with us before we can come up with a final number, because they’re all from scratch.”
So how many of you would be willing to wait extra time so that Capcom could reach a higher number a characters. I for sure think that the number of characters in this game should at least be comparable to MvC2…and “roughly 30” is not comparably imo. Don’t get me wrong, even with 30ish I think the game will be great, but I just hate to think of the characters that would might get left out simply due to time constraints. I honestly would just rather wait for capcom to have the turkey fully cooked cuz though I’m hungry I don’t want to eat a meal that’s half cooked…ya dig? Plus once the game comes out, it is OUT. No revisions, no turbo or championship editions with the VS series…so I would really rather see them do it right the first time, since it will be the last mvc game we’ll see for a loooong time to come. How many of you would mind waiting another 6 months? Year? 2 years?
Assuming that capcom will not release other characters later (they said on 4/20 that they had no plans for dlc for this game)
