Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 updates! Vita and Heroes and Heralds

Nothing celebrates a morning like news of UMVC3 features, today we have news on not only the Vita version of the game but also on Heroes and Heralds mode finally arriving.

First up, Heroes and Heralds arrives December 19th for the 360 and PS3. The ability card mode has been long in the making and managed to tease players even after the fact. It’s a wildcard mode allowing players to concentrate their focus not only on combat but on timing and skill to use these cards to the best of their ability.

A few effects:

  • Invisibility
  • X-Factor Burst
  • Super Armor
  • Projectile Invincibility
  • Jump Increase
  • Team of One
  • New Combo Chains
  • Speed Boost
  • Assist attack stun
  • Jump Increase
  • Special attack cancels

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 just turned into a mess again with all these new features. Even the most rehearsed Youtube characters can’t rely on chains with invulnerability, invisibility and other increases in a match going active when they don’t count on it. As the game passes into Month 2, it will only get added life with these updates. Check out the trailer for teasers of this in action.

Next, if you own a Playstation Vita and wish you could get in on some console gaming goodness, you don’t have to wait longer. The Vita version of UMVC3 is coming and it’s looking good. Capcom has an entire mini gallery out to showcase the progress of it. Check it out below.

PS3 price drop

Starting today Sony has dropped the price of the PlayStation 3. The 160gb model is now 249.99.

If you need more storage, the 320gb model is now available for 299.99. Interestingly there is also an 320gb Infamous 2 bundle that includes 30 days of PlayStation prime for 299.99. That maybe the one to get if you are in the market, I believe supplies will be more limited.

Also worth noting, the new price point makes the “entry” level PS3 cheaper than the Vita. The Vita is priced at 299.99, which is a bit on the steep side for a handheld. The Vita seems to be feature rich but Nintendo has dominated the handheld market for over a decade and struggled to sell the 3DS at 249.99. Will consumers respond to features and applications or are the sales going to depend on the quality of the games released?
