Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Rumored for Comic-Con Announcement

Today we've got a rumor fresh from The Quarter Bin, who says their sources "close to the project" have spilled the beans on a big Capcom announcement for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 at Comic-Con. And the winner is... Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. [We didn't see THAT coming... ~Nick_Tan]

If true (and given Capcom's penchant for re-releasing the same game over and over again, it definitely sounds likely), MvC3 will be another victim of the re-release machine. But like it or not, as long as this particular business model keeps raking in the dough, you can bet your ass that Capcom will keep doing it.

But as for what's "new", the Ultimate edition should have at least 50 characters, including the ones already released as DLC, plus a bunch more that have yet to be announced. You can be sure that they'll provide a lot more details on the roster when the actual announcement hits at Comic-Con later in the week. Oh, and the price for the re-release is supposed to be $39.99, just like SSFIV was when it first hit the shelves. We'll have more info as it comes out during the convention.
