Capcom wasn’t content with having the biggest announcement
at Nintendo’s Tokyo Game Show press conference – it needed to crash Sony’s Vita
conference as well. After blowing the lid off Nintendo’s event by revealing
Monster Hunter 4 for the 3DS, the publisher took to the show to announce that its
upcoming brawler, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, will be out for Vita launch in
Japan (and, we assume, America as well).
The Vita version will apparently feature an experience that
they claim is identical to the console version, including
online multiplayer over the PlayStation Network to let players fight
competitively on the go. The main difference between the versions will come in
the Vita’s controls, which will be enhanced with the option to play with the
handheld’s touch screen. While we’re sure this isn’t going to be of interest to
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 elitists, it will likely provide a more streamlined way for
casual gamers to get involved.
