Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of two worlds
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: fate of two worlds (MVC3) is the sequal to Capcoms Marvel vs. Capcom 2:age of new heroes originally released in 2000. Ten years finally passed and a follow up was born directed and produced by Ryota Niitsuma. Featuring an all new revamped version that kept fans of the series and new enthusiasts alike waiting hand and foot for release date (Feb 15, 2011). The series had got its title by collaberating the North American hero icons (Marvel) and the Japanese hero icons (Capcom) in one game to fight to the death with no real background story as to why or how they even got into such a battle. Unlike the predicessors of this installment MVC3 has added a storyline in which our heros from both factions are trying to defeat a team of Marvel villians assembled by Doctor Doom that decided to team up with Resident Evil's Albert Wesker, in hopes of ruling the universe. While this alone sounds very interesting, what really lets the series excell is its unique style of gaming. Although its a fighting game, intstead of a one- to- one fights its three on three, each team with their own unique ways creating combos, or special moves, and each character having three special ways to contribute to the battle. I mentioned that its team oriented, well each three man (or women) team is customized by the player allowing you to make any team you want, based off of the characters given in the character selection screen. In the game you have two main modes offline and online. Offline mode allows you to play the story mode which is coined "arcade mode," play with friends locally, go to training mode, or do missions in which players are required to win certain fights or pull off certain senarios; There is also a gallery in which you gain character models, and artwork only viewable in game. In online mode you can battle for leaderboard rankings, or friendly matches including tourniment styled battles, gain titles/trophys and download new content for the game. The object of MVC3 is to defeat each stage of teams. Example: round one, thats a stage in where your three person team will fight another three person team. You win by diminshing all three of the other team members life bars. This is accomplished by six buttons, the four hit buttons and the two assits buttons, you use these to create combos and attack the apposing team. There is usually seven rounds in "arcade mode" then a boss battle which will always be Galactus because he is the big "destroyer of worlds."
