Marvel vs. Capcom 3 online experience will be bare-bones for now

Capcom special adviser and community manager Seth Killian has spilled some dirt on the online play of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and how it compares to other current Capcom titles.

In response to the development process of MvC3‘s online modes, Killian stated: “There’s still a lot of back-and-forth internally about it, frankly. So, at a minimum you can expect your standard online modes where you can have a friendly match or a ranked match, as well as your offline modes.”

This may not be a surprise to many, as other Capcom fighters such as Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV arrived in stores with the bare minimum as well.

Killian gave some hope for future developments, though, as he went on to suggest that MvC3 could progress like SF4 and SSF4 in respect to patched modes. “You want to meet all the player expectations,” he said, “but if there is something that you want to do that you’re not able to get to–patch it later.”

Hopefully, some more light will be shed on this matter at Tokyo Game Show this September.
