Capcom dropped the official news recently that Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is coming to the Xbox One and to PC. The game will feature some upgrades and fixes as it makes its way to Steam for the very first time ever.
The blog further notes that a physical copy of Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 will also be released in limited supply at retailers for the Xbox One and on the PlayStation 4 for $29.99.
The reason for the extra $5 charge on the physical edition of the crossover fighting game is because it features 10-page exclusive comic book featuring the Marvel heroes (and villains) versus the Capcom characters. The comic book has been illustrated by Marvel artists Sean Chen and Gerado Sandoval. The story covers a little bit of how the Marvel and Capcom has come to a head. I tend to doubt it will have anything to do with Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite, which is due out later this year for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The game on PC has been confirmed to run at 1080p with 60 frames per second. They have yet to detail the system specifications for Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 on Steam, but the Steam page is live with some screenshots of the game.
Right now it's hard to figure out if the game will contain increased graphical fidelity for the textures and asset improvements, but we do know the game will be optimized to run at the standards that gamers have come to expect from current generation gaming. Capcom isn't known to skimp on their PC ports, so it's likely that controller and gamepad support will be included for the PC version of the game. The Steam page does briefly mention full controller support, so it's likely that you shouldn't have any problems plugging in your DualShock 4 or using your Xbox One Elite controller to play Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3.
Another highlight for this particular re-release is that all of the previously released DLC for the game will be made available as part of the package. In fact they've labeled it as the Marvel Vs Capcom: Official Complete Works. I'm not sure if that means it also contains other features not present in the previous releases or if it's just the same game with all of the DLC packed in. Capcom wasn't especially forthcoming about the details of the game.
They will be including both the single and multiplayer modes, however. This includes local multiplayer for people tag-teaming on the couch and online multiplayer for people competing against each other across the globe.
Ahead of the March 7 release for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, expect more details to surface for the PC version system requirements and the total install size for the Xbox One.
