The “Games Software Sales Forecast” included in Capcom’s latest financial report includes launch windows for a handful of the company’s upcoming titles — the most intriguing of which is Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. According to the report, the game is set to launch sometime during the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year, meaning Capcom’s planning to release it some time between January 1 and March 31, 2011.

Capcom’s no stranger to releasing its blockbusters during the first few months of the year — however, this strategy became riskier with the arrival of this year’s first-quarter “second Christmas.” As such, the report states that Capcom “will further refine our long-term portfolio by deploying major titles in each quarter of the fiscal year.” If only every other game company would be so prudent, we might be able to avoid the crushing load of games we have to wade through during the year’s occasional busy release months. How about it, gaming industry?

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 official!

If you’re like me, then this is going to be great news for you!  Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is now official and will be heading to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in Spring 2011.  While it is far off, it’s still great to finally get a third in this great fighting series!

This time around, the game won’t be entirely 2D based.  Instead it will be a hybrid of sorts with 2D and 3D -Think Street Fighter IV.  A representative at Capcom stated, “We’re not necessarily hyping the number of characters with MvC3, we’re hyping quality.  These aren’t just sprites you can plug into the game. This is a full, disc-based release with gorgeous 3D models powered by the latest version of MT Framework. At this point, there are roughly 30 characters in the game, but that number will increase. You can rest assured that Niitsuma-san and his team will be working hard to include as many characters as possible before the game hits next year.”
