Watch out for errant Proton Cannon blasts, Marvel fans, these eight awesome new screenshots from "Marvel vs. Capcom 3" may just blast your face off!
"Marvel vs. Capcom 3" producer Niitsuma-san shared these eight images, along with his personal thoughts on them, with Marvel.com and Capcom-Unity.com. Enjoy the images below and visit Capcom-Unity.com for more on "MvC3," and more from Niitsuma-san.
"The screenshots below aren't all of the ones we have," says Niitsuma-san, "but I included some of my favorites below with my own personal comments." Read on for inside details from Niitsuma-san!
1. We explained before that the theme we're going with in regards to the visuals is "Moving Comics," so we wanted the graphical effects to have that "hand-drawn" feel to it too.
2. Of course, "Marvel vs. Capcom 3" is retaining the flashy, over-the-top look, like in previous Versus games.
3. Moves from previous games were also given a more realistic look.
4. Since comic books were originally published in book form, effects depicting the tearing of paper are commonplace in the game.
5. This is also a move that was in the previous games, but it was also part of the debut trailer we had at Captivate.
6. Hulk's move here may seem similar to the previous screenshot, but it's sliiiiightly different. We've been creating the motions one by one, I'll have you know.
7. We're also working hard on the new characters too! Making these characters from scratch is a lot of fun but a lot of work too!
8. It looks like Chris is firing off a shotgun, a weapon he had in the "Resident Evil" games that he was in, but you probably wouldn't have guessed that from the hit sparks that it generated, haha.
"Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds" tornado claws its way onto Xbox 360 and PS3 in Spring 2011. Stay glued to Marvel.com for much more about the game over the coming months. Watch the teaser trailer here, catch up on all the game's details revealed so far here, and visit Capcom-Unity.com for even more "MvC3" goodness!
