Is Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3: Arcade Edition Being Prepped?

During the Marvel Video Games panel back at New York Comic Con this year, I had the opportunity to ask Seth Killian, the Senior Manager of Community at Capcom, a question about Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Since everyone was afraid to ask this question, I decided to step up and bluntly ask him what has been bothering me (and many others) about Capcom’s marketing scheme.

“Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 certainly looks great! However, is it safe for consumers to purchase this game or will we be seeing an Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3: Arcade Edition released within the next six months?” I asked. “This interview is over…” Seth laughed. Then he stated, “No, this is definitely the definitive version and there’s no other edition being planned.”

Whether Seth was telling the truth or trying to dodge a bullet is still questionable. The intention for asking that question was to make it clear that there are many people infuriated with UMvC3’s release within the same year as the original MvC3 and it clearly shows based on the lackluster sales it’s had so far (via VGChartz). The audience in the room was shocked at the fact that the question was even asked, compiled mainly of one response: “Oh S**t! Did he really just ask that?!”

Let’s be realistic, this is Capcom we’re talking about here. I love the company. They’ve put out some of my favorite titles of all time. However, it’s no question that Capcom has been a bit carried away this particular generation by releasing an improved edition for their games more so than any other company.

What do you guys think? Will Capcom ultimately resort to an Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3: Arcade Edition? Sound off what you think in the comments below!
