Marvel Vs Capcom 3 and Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 Leaked To Be In Development

leave a comment »

Ahead of the embargo being lifted on Capcom’s CAPtivate event that just took place, are the leaks that Marvel Vs Capcom 3 and Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 are both in development.

Hold that thought for a second.

Marvel. Versus. Capcom. Three.

Using the minimal amount of motor functions that I can get away with to write this update, I am, to put it mildly, extremely freakin’ stoked about this. Whilst little is known about the actual roster of fighters, the title itself will apparently have the largest roster ever assembled and boasts a visual style similar to that of Tatsunoko Vs Capcom that has 3D fighters locked to a 2D plane. The visual differences will end there however, as the title utilises the extra processing horsepower afforded by the PS3/360 to create some extremely detailed fighters and backgrounds and has the whole schebang running at 720p for good measure.

In terms of a release, the eagerly anticipated crossover title will arrive as a full retail product for 360/PS3 in 2011, and *not* as a digitially downloadable title like the Marvel Vs Capcom 2 conversion did.

The leaked teaser trailer can be seen below:

Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 on the other hand, will be an XBLA/PSN title and should arrive at the end of the year. In regards to the title itself it appears to be more of the same goodness that made one of 2008’s best downloadable titles as good as it was, but with one crucial difference, you can now jump.

Folks may scoff at this, but the addition of jumping is quite a game changer indeed as previously, all you could do to navigate the environment in any manner more complex than running was to use your hookswing.

Fatshark will be handling coding duties on the sequel; it was the now defunct Swedish developer GRIN who coded the original Bionic Commando: Rearmed.

The leaked teaser trailer for the title may be seen at the link below:

I’ll hopefully be able to bring you folks more details on each of these games later on in the day when the press embargo on the event lifts.

Stay tuned.
