It’s just over 4 years since the release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The latest entry in the Marvel series has enjoyed considerable tournament support in Australia, certainly more than we saw back in the days of its predecessor MvC2. Sadly Capcom’s support for the game ended a few years back, due to the licensing complexities and constraints that come with a game involving Marvel’s brand. Players have drifted away from the game as expected, yet even in 2015 the top players made the effort to travel and compete, ensuring that UMvC3 would continue to make noise in the way that only the Marvel Vs. games can.
The appeal of the Marvel series transcends many of the game-specific divides within the AU FGC. FaYd from Sydney is best known for his contributions to the Tekken scene and he exhibits a passion for Marvel some might not expect. After the jump FaYd rounds-up the 2015 Australian majors circuit for UMvC3 and we provide a summary of results along with our picks for the AU UMvC3 MVPs of 2015.
This Saturday at the new Shadowloo HQ aka Shadowlogic in Footscray, Melbourne, everybody will get the chance to win a plane ticket to Japan to participate in SBO 2012! All entry fees for Marvel will go towards the plane ticket for the winner, so come down and support our boys!
