While Capcom and Marvel were somehow out of touch enough (even stupid enough sad to say) to say that not enough people recognize the X-Men like Magneto and Wolverine, heaps of people are currently saying "Who the hell is Arthur?"

@Aussieroth The irony is quite large there. I also find it a bit funny that they included Ghost Rider instead of Wolverine since he's more well known (I think?)

So Ashly Burch was the mystery actor for Chun Li all along. She's a bit soft (as others have said).

Also Ian James Corlett is a nice surprise and David Kaye sounds pretty good as Jedah (Corlett's not too bad either and Daymond too but everyone else though... that's another story).

I suppose the cast is fine for what it is but all actors and Klein (the director) have proven they can do much better... (not trying to sound mean or anything but still)

If there is one performance I can praise for this game it has to be David Kaye as Jedah. In fact it's probably the best performance in the game.

I'm really not feeling the voices nor the roster choices and that's funny because certain cast members have played the characters in the past (im never gonna get used to English Morrigan , it's just so irking sounding to me) , and that's a bit sad since this series is part of my life since the very first game. This sequel looks rather bland , so i don't think it's a ''must buy''. Not gonna even start with Laura not reprising Chun Li , that's really dissapointing.
TheDayman
said at 8:01 PM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@Swiftie Muggle its weird. Isn't Chun Li usually higher pitched? Ashly Burch sounds like she's doing a straight up Laura Bailey impersonation, not a Laura Bailey Chun Li voice match

By the way, they did fix Dante's face in this game. He doesn't look like his soul has been zapped out if him. That thumbnail image should be left as a constant reminder that it could have been like this, had they not changed it.

So Ashley Burch is Chun Li? Yeah, I'm not feeling her preformance. She was better here than she was for Rise, but her voice sounds a bit to soft for the character. Anyways, voices aside I won't be buying this. The graphics look god awful and the roster makes Fire Emblem Warriors's look amazing (it is getting better, but I do wish it had more diversity). I doubt I'd buy it even if it was incredible (games like this aren't really my style) but me aside I wonder if it'll be a success?
NCZ (Admin)

@Soul-dragon

I don't know why they keep casting Ashly to replace Laura's roles. Rise was a total misfire and Chun Li is not much better. I have nothing against her, but putting her in those roles is just fundamentally not working from a casting point of view.

@NCZ Agreed. I'm glad it's not Alexis Tipon substituting in again but casting Ashly Burch as Chun Li definitley didn't work. I would've preferred someone with a deeper stronger voice and with a more formal tone. I just hope that it's only temporary.

@NCZ Even rush jobs for talented directors don't usually turn out better than this. Unless it was a, "do every session in 2 hours or less because we're not paying more than the union minimum" deal I have no idea how some of the VO was this poor.

@Nightmare Crusher

It wouldn't surprise me at all if that was the case. Just get everything done raw for the sake of it being done without taking the time to finetune and redo things. The whole game seems to have had a really rushed production and the VO is no exception. It comes across as rushed and very phoned in. Such a shame since we know Klein and NGP can do better when they're given the time and freedom to get things right.

The lack of Japanese VO is a big sign of corners being cut too.

@NCZ Speaking of the lack of Japanese VO. They said they were willing to put it in provided that there is enough demand for it. As it stands there's not a huge demand for it right now, but I can say that the majority is very dissatisfied with the voice over in general and it one of the glaring complaints of this game.
CyberGalaxy
said at 5:41 PM on Mon Sep 18 2017
@NCZ

I still can't believe Klein and NGP was in charge of this voice direction. Yet, their names were right there in the credits. The MvC series is one of my favorite franchises and to see one of its entries being rushed and treated this way is unacceptable.

Marvel's larger involvement compared to previous entries in the franchise played a key role to this lack of quality. Their need to cram their cinematic brand in the MvC franchise is completely redundant, because it's a franchise that's already very popular on its own.

I will never, EVER be able to stop thinking about this one comment on the Avengers Assemble page, because while it wasn't specifically made about MVC Infinite, it is the most relevant and scathing evisceration I have ever heard.

True, but it's not like it's the first project where Klein and NGP kinda dropped the ball on VO. Star Ocean 4, anybody?
MasterBlaster

@Shaun Ince

I can see that. The MvC series has never been a HUGE seller in Japan, so it made sense, at least to me to just focus on English VA's.

On the plus side, it's the first game that Capcom has done something like this in a while.
HylianBelmont

@MasterBlaster Yep. I recall Star Ocean 4 being kinda rough as well. Wasn't "horrible" but it was hardly great either.

Also, first MvC game to credit the cast to their roles, if I'm not mistaken. Cool.

It's great to see some familiar and well-known-faces in the cast, even if it is 90% reprisals.
Shaun Ince

@MasterBlaster True, but at least the previous game actually had the Japanese voice over for the Capcom characters. NCZ mentioned a lack of budget when it came to this game. And it shows.
MasterBlaster
said at 12:05 PM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@Shaun Ince

Ain't that the truth?

Using Unreal Engine 4 instead of their own MT Framework engine, an absurd lack of characters (30 in this, as opposed to UMvC3's 50), lackluster VA performances on top of a lack of Japanese VA.

The writing's on the wall--this game had a low budget and was pretty much "holiday" rushed.
MasterBlaster
said at 12:10 PM on Tue Sep 19 2017

Yeah, SO4 was pretty so-so. Could have been much better.

It's just proof that even great voice directors can have their off-days. Especially if the project doesn't have a decent budget.
HylianBelmont
said at 12:58 PM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@MasterBlaster Or a deadline that requires them to rush it, from the look of things.

But hey, Jedah's voice is at least a pretty interesting standout from this game. If anything else
NCZ (Admin)
said at 1:10 PM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@MasterBlaster

Unreal Engine 4 isn't a problem in itself. It's in my honest opinion one of the best engines on the market. It's extremely versatile and easily produces great results. The game looking as sloppy as it does is entirely on Capcom.

What this and SO4 have in common is the dialogue is teeeerrible. No actor can save what they were given by those two games and that goes a long way.

Honestly really glad to see EMH reprisals especially Loomis because he has not voice acted in a long time.

David Kaye voicing jedah is a great choice, nice to see an ocean va from a capcom anime appear in a capcom game of the same property.

Im happy that Burch got to fill in for Laura Bailey again, sure Tipton does the better voice match but 2017 has mostly been her filling for bailey nice to see a change of pace.

wont comment on the race but i will say my least favorite replacement is fred tatiscore as GR, no disrespect but GR was not his best Marvel role, they should have kept Richard Grecio

@HyperVoiceActing I know what you mean. There's people that really want this game to fail. There's already a few people that have the game already and I did see a few streamers stream the game on Twitch. The gameplay is very good. To me the main disappointment was the roster itself. Lack of X-Men characters & Deadpool. Marvel is steering away from those properties & promoting the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

@Shaun Ince

There are a lot of vultures out there obsessed with the idea of certain games failing, but in general, I don't even think the issue with the game is that it looks bad. The general consensus is that it just looks mediocre. Like yeah, the gameplay should be good, but that's to be expected from the series. Everything else is 60 shades of bleh and I think the game is getting scrutinized extra heavily because it's the last straw after Capcom's not-so-hot streak of fighting games in the past few years compared to their competitors.

Answering your question regarding how well it'll do. The mainstream, non-FGC hype is totally dead so while I think it'll get okay reviews (though with definite criticisms dragging it down), I don't think it'll meet Capcom's sales expectations. They're expecting 2 million and when MVC3, a much more hyped, marketed, and received game, only barely managed that, and neither SFV or SFxTK could since, I think it seems like a tall order.
Shaun Ince

I'm sorry but besides one or two actors (such as I think Daymond as Spidey) I'm absolutely not feeling it at all. Most of the voice acting sounds depressingly weak and the direction's not very good either. Chun Li is defiantly not sounding like Bailey or even Tipton, Bloom sounds off which is weird since he's normally good as Captain America, Devall's disappointingly eh (I can tell they're trying way too hard to make Rocket Raccoon the replacement for Deadpool), X's voice isn't very good and everyone else sounds odd.

Also what a disappointing lineup. Where's our good ol Wolverine and Doctor Doom?

Kids these days don't know who Wolverine, Deadpool, and Dr. Doom are. In fact, you could even argue that, when you think about it, they're just functions. So really, if you have characters that kids these days do know and love like Firebrand or Nemesis or Nathan Spencer, it's pretty much the same thing, right?

@Abdullab Well said really. The voice direction (so far) is just so damn weak and it really lets most of these fine talented actors doing the best they can down. Some of these cast members have played these roles perfectly before so it's really disappointing to see them go to waste a bit with rather spotty voice direction.

@NCZ So? It doesn't take long to learn who Wolverine is, and he's STILL one of the three most popular Marvel characters in existence (the other two being Spider-Man and, of course, Deadpool). There's really no reason to not bring in Wolverine or a few other X-Men, it'd be a good way to introduce kids to Wolverine anyway.

@Aussieroth

I don't know. Wolverine may be popular, but when you think about it, Rocket Raccoon is also an animal-themed Marvel character, so do we really need him? We did a great job choosing the character roster carefully, so people can see the teamups they've waited years upon years to see. Like Rocket Raccoon and Mega Man X! Sure we looked at the MCU when deciding the roster, but we also looked at the comics. Fan service is a must after all, and while it was really difficult thinking of characters from the comics to add, we're really happy that we decided on Nova. So if the roster looks like it was decided purely based on who is in the MCU and has upcoming movies we'd like to promote, it's a total coincidence. The lawyers who put the roster together assured us of that.

I'm 90% sure it's Marvel dictating the casting choices on their side. MVC3's cast on their side was mandated by them. Capcom deserves flak for a lot of things surrounding this game but a lot of it is down to Marvel's screwery too.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 3:01 PM on Thu Aug 17 2017
@IndigoQueen

Marvel don't seem to care. They had Paul Dobson and Steve Blum as two people each in 3. Captain America and Chris is the only situation so far where there seems to have been an actual conflict, but that's mainly because their characters are so similar, their voices are identical, and RCS has been voicing Chris longer and been more identified with him so that role probably got priority. Or something.
IndigoQueen
said at 4:57 PM on Thu Aug 17 2017
@TheDayman Since Roger Craig Smith is both Chris and Cap, but didn't have him voice both in the game, I thought there wouldn't be anymore one-actor-voices-two-characters like in 3. But that isn't really my issue, just that they should've went with someone else instead of being lazy and giving it to an actor who already has a role (I don't even know if it's because he voices him in the cartoons, but come on it's not very good).

@NCZ But you're right; Marvel seems like they are to blame for these casting choices on their side. What a shame.

Firebrand and Dormammu have been officially revealed on the MVCI twitter account, and will be shown at Gamescon this month.

While, I'm glad Dorm is back as he was one of my mains, I'm nervous that they're going to recast him and replace his epic theme with generic orchestral music like they did for Spiderman. Firebrand, I can care less about, even though I love the Gargoyle's Quest/Demon's Crest series. Would've preferred a newcomer, preferably a female as this game only has four so far which is ridiculous considering that UMVC3 had more than twice that amount (13).

Honestly it strikes me as some weird combination of things like Roger Craig Smith already being Chris, and the game clearly being rushed and them not being able to get people like Troy Baker or Laura Bailey on such short notice, or going into production at a time where they hadn't firmly established Wingert as the permanent Iron Man and needed someone they could quickly get on call, than any sort of deliberate attempt to snub people. Daymond is voicing Spider-Man because he's the one in the new cartoon and they want to promote that.

@D.A.V.E. Well like NCZ said, there's no consistency when it comes to the casts for certain Marvel games. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 was a hybrid of sorts. Most of the voice actors for the Marvel characters were based off of Wolverine & the X-Men (X-Men voices) Hulk vs Wolverine (For Deadpool) and Earth's Mightiest Heroes (Avengers & Rocket Raccoon) But then you have Paul Dobson as Doom which wasn't connected to any of the previous shows I mentioned above as well as characters like Dormammu & Dr Strange that have voices not based off past reprisals.

said at 4:44 PM on Sun Aug 20 2017

@IndigoQueen

It'd go a long way for sure. Sort out the roster woes a bit, give them more time to polish the graphics and presentation and it might be good for refreshing the game's hype cycle. When they're done for honest reasons, delays are only a good thing and I think it would go a long way if people got the impression Capcom were willing to swallow their pride and do what's right for the game, especially since the overall hype seems pretty much dead at this point. I don't think it'd solve all the game's problems, but it'd be better than throwing it out when it's clearly just not ready.

I do think what's in doubt is if the release date is Capcom's decision or part of their contract with Disney/Marvel.

I remember Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 releasing in November 2011 was executive mandated. But I can't remember if that was Marvel wanting it out for the holiday rush, or Capcom not wanting it to interfere with Street Fighter x Tekken (which came out in March 2012).

But either way you're right, I feel like Capcom tend to be pretty stubborn about things like that and it's getting a bit late to fix all the marketing deals and such they have going on. I honestly can't remember the last major time they delayed a game. Only ones I can think of in recent memory were Umbrella Corps (May 2016 -> June 2016 - not a huge one) and DmC (2012 -> 2013).
IndigoQueen
said at 2:38 AM on Wed Aug 2 2017
@NCZ Agreed. And I think if the DLC characters were added to the base roster instead, that might be some goodwill for the people who are upset about two story characters being behind a paywall. Speaking of dead hype, Dormammu and Firebrand were officially revealed via one of the leaked variant covers by Capcom themselves yesterday and were pretty much confirmed to be shown ingame at Gamescon this month. Other than that, the music is pretty generic, especially on the Marvel side. All of the returning characters themes were replaced by generic cinematic orchestra tracks that sound out of place in a wild and fast paced game like Marvel Vs Capcom. Now I'm worried that Dormammu and Ghost Rider's epic themes from UMVC3 will replaced as well.

Some people believe that Marvel is pushing the September release date to coincide with their movie franchises and such, but who really knows. It could just be Capcom's incompetence again.

I also recall that in 2012, Capcom had already lost the license to Marvel so that may have played a role in UMVC3 releasing less than a year after vanilla.

Yep. And apparently Capcom's bad decision making has been linked to a change of management back in the mid 2000's, so maybe it's time that whoever is in charge get the boot. It's also interesting that you mentioned DmC, which from what I heard didn't meet Capcom's sales expectations. Wow.

So, I re-watched the second story trailer today and noticed that X's voice sounds different from what we heard in the demo. From what I heard, he sounds a bit more serious with a slighter deeper voice, and it got me thinking: what if they replaced his voice actor during development? That would certainly explain his lack of a voice in the very first trailer, lack of any lines in the Ultron-Sigma reveal trailer, and proper gameplay footage showing off his moves like the rest of the cast that got shown.

Now I'm really hoping that this is the case because he DOES sound much better in the second trailer, and if he ends up sounding like that in the release, it would really put some of my doubts at ease about the game. Not to mention, make me really happy that they gave x a better replacement.

With that said, I'm hoping that Capcom is listening to fans by touching up the graphics and models, altering the script and dialogue, and tweaking the character's movesets so that they're in line with what they're supposed to be. Here's to hoping for a decent release.

Fortenium

@IndigoQueen Sincerely hoping so. Mark Gatha is going to be difficult replacing, but is definitely possible to at least get somebody close to his level. The in-game script X is ok, but in-game combat X sounds bad (at least in the footage in June.)

I'd love this game to be good, umvc3 didn't have a proper "story mode" so to see it now but see this game looking mediocre is a disappointing experience...
IndigoQueen
said at 8:33 PM on Tue Jul 18 2017
@Fortenium Agreed. The script for the story is fine so far (save for that part where X shouts "Strider!" in the very first scene even though he's just called Hiryu), but the combat lines... Yikes. I really hope it's just placeholder stuff.

I'm with you there. I want this game to do good, because not only is X, my favorite character getting a chance in my favorite crossover series, but this time we're getting a story mode. Something that was promised yet left out in MVC3. I just hope that the reveals at SDCC can save this game from all the negativity.

If this is what we're in for when we get to full game (based off the demo) it's definitely not worth purchasing. At all. I think I'll stick with Marvel vs Capcom 2 & 3.

Also Megaman X's voice in this game doesn't sound very good.

Is there going to be an option to switch the languages, or is it going to be English only. I'm saying this because Marvel vs Capcom 3 had Japanese voices for the Capcom characters.

I'm very disappointed with X's voice in this game. Aside from the lackluster acting and terrible script, this new guy does not match X at all. He has a completely different tone of voice and vocal range from Mark Gatha, who is heralded as the best voice actor for X.

Even though he retired, the casting director should have went went with someone similar to Gatha or with the same vocal range. Hell, I would have been content with Yuri Lowenthal despite him voicing Beck in Mighty No.9.

As for Zero, I have nothing against Johnny Yong Bosch (he's one of my favorite male voice actors), but I'd rather hear someone else voice Zero instead. After playing FFXV, I think Ray Chase would make a great Zero since he sounds a bit similar to Lucas Gilbertson.

I have no idea who is Sigma, but I have a feeling they went with Patrick Seitz, which was who I was predicting the whole time. I may be wrong though.

Even though he probably won't be DLC, I would like Armando Valdes-Kennedy to voice Vile. When I played Dissidia 012, I couldn't help but notice how similar he sounded to Roger Rhodes. Even more funny is that both Vile and Laguna are like weapons masters.

The demo allows you to change the subtitle language, but not the voice language.

Also, checking the game's Steam page lists it as English-only for audio.

Seems like the game will only be voiced in English. Surprised that's the case for the Capcom characters, but I guess it makes sense considering the low-budget nature of the game and the fact that it seems to be made with NA/PAL in mind first and foremost...

Capcom are not one of the struck companies, and none of the VO production companies being struck are ones they use. As well, the majority of other characters still have their ordinary VAs. The strike or any other union shenanigans have nothing to do with it. Laura was just unavailable because of the game's presumably-hasty schedule, and conflicting with the several motion capture roles she's been racking up in recent times.

Predictable answer from me but I wasn't impressed. I wrote more in the forums but it wasn't a very good demo and doesn't really inspire confidence regarding the game itself. The story and character writing are very underwhelming, the core gameplay was okay but the overall experience wasn't very fun to me. The bigger picture to me is, we're in such a great time for fighting games right now with DB FighterZ, KOF XIV, Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Rev 2, and Dissidia NT, even Injustice which isn't my cup of tea I acknowledge is a successful game. MVC Infinite is just far behind them on every possible level. It simply isn't offering any reason to choose it over so many other excellent options, and I think that's disappointing.

@Jessica Marra

It's a shame. I think the problem with this and Street Fighter V is that so many of their issues would simply be fixed if the developers were given more time. Instead it seems like they're given extremely strict deadlines, and it's bringing the game down.

This game needed at least another year in the oven. With only 3 months left, what we see is basically what we're going to get. A longer development time hopefully would've sorted out its roster problems (e.g. Sigma and Black Panther are DLC, but with their prominent roles in the story mode, it's pretty clear they were supposed to be in the main game and cut for time), and especially the models, and maybe allowed for a better story mode too.

It is a shame that we're losing so much quality VO not only due to the roster cuts, but also just various replacements overtime. Losing Laura Bailey as Chun-Li is just insane to me. I can't help but wonder who's doing the voice direction this time around. New Generation Pictures? But something about this sounds off compared to their usual work.

That's what gets me. The game is 6 years after UMVC3. Having half the roster because you're starting from scratch in a new engine and want a fresh start roster-wise, that's fine. Starting from scratch with a tiny roster and then having 90% of them be people who were already in the last game? What? Why not just reuse the original engine/etc. to begin with and add onto the previous game? It's just ridiculous. Not even beginning to get into some of the choices they made regarding who to keep and who to cut.

Wesker was one of the most iconic characters of last game and you cut him and keep Nemesis? Who, need I remind you, was not a particularly well liked addition to UMvC3. No Phoenix Wright? Come on! Why the hell are you keeping Spencer? Who even remembers that game?Where's Asura, damn it? And just as the cherry on top we have Sigma, one of the MAIN VILLAINS OF THIS GAME AS DLC! Good lord. Monster hunter is cool though.

Marvel is apparently going for MCU shilling, but they can't even get that right. No Black Widow? No Black Panther? No Loki? Really? Yet they bothered to put in Captain Marvel whose movie isn't even out until at least 2019. What is this?

@Nightmare Crusher As for me I'm glad they decided to keep Nemesis, he is a much more iconic villain than Wesker IMO. Of course, I know I'm in the minority here. On the Marvel side, I hate that it's all MCU, with some luck Logan and Wade will be DLC but the rest bye-bye. Also, no Maximoff twins? Really?

Don't worry. I'm sure the absence of the X-Men (the series responsible for beginning the VS series), Dr. Doom (one of the most famous characters in all of comics, and a popular character in MVC), and Deadpool (one of the most beloved additions to MVC3 who recently had a smash hit and well-loved movie adaptation, jettisonning him to mainstream status) combined with the fact that every single character except Nova is part of the MCU is toooootally a coincidence!

@NCZ You know, it's too bad the roster is so small. I understand though. They had to rebuild everything from the ground up and totally didn't reuse assets from a game that's more than half a decade old. There's no way they could have made the roster any bigger, no sir. Now who's ready to fork over even more money for all of the actual new characters who should have been in the game anyway? I know I am.

Yeah, no doubt about that. Not just graphically (though THAT'S a league of its own), but everything about DB FighterZ looks like it'll eat MVCI's lunch to me, on every level. They're even running in the same engine to boot, Unreal 4, yet the gulf is staggering. THAT'S how you do justice to a game like this.

@NCZ ok, I'm sorry, half of this is pretty ridiculous. X-Men got CotA because the cartoon was popular, and they all got into the MvC games because those literally reused assets until 3. There's no grandfather clause here, they were just cheap to add. The rosters have ALWAYS been decided by popularity. Why else would the X-Men we got in 2 be from the cartoon, while in 3 they were mostly from the movies besides X-23? Even Deadpool was technically in Origins. Of COURSE they're focusing on the MCU. Also, Thanos was in 2, but adding him back in is bad now because he's going to be the villain in Infinity War I guess? And Strange was added in anticipation for the movie that wouldn't be released for 5 years! On top of that, we don't even know the full roster, since they're very clearly going to throw announcements up until release. There's criticisms of the game (story characters being future DLC for some reason, the story being stilted and cliche), but "the roster is tying in to what's popular/marketable" isn't one of them, because it's been like that since forever.

All this also ignores that Logan is dead in both the comics and the (like Deadpool) smash-hit film of the same name, and in the comics Laura takes over the role while an alternate future "Old Man" Logan also exists (which the aforementioned film is heavily inspired by). So does CAPCOM ignore this? Can they? Do they basically reskin the characters? But that will upset people, so they'd probably add classic costumes, but then people will get mad it's locked behind DLC. There's literally no right answer there.

"The rosters have ALWAYS been decided by popularity."

Then why aren't Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Sentinel, Cable, Dr. Doom, or Deadpool in this? Do you really think Arthur, Spencer, and Nemesis are people the general public actually cares about? Why is the only character who isn't from the MCU Nova (who's from GOTG to begin with)? Come on son, 75% of the cast is reused from MVC3 and the entire non-MCU cast of that game has been completely gutted. This isn't a "popularity" thing, they're specifically going out of their way to exclude non-MCU people.

"On top of that, we don't even know the full roster"

We do. It was leaked by the same person who leaked the game and the roster reveals at E3 match up entirely.

"All this also ignores that Logan is dead in both the comics and the (like Deadpool) smash-hit film of the same name, and in the comics Laura takes over the role while an alternate future "Old Man" Logan also exists (which the aforementioned film is heavily inspired by).

Why does any of this matter? Just include the characters as they were in the previous games because that's what worked. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Everyone in so far is more-or-less identical to their appearance in prior games.

Well, the leak didn't contain Zero as a specific character and didn't talked about the grandmaster either. We don't know about much of the leak and yet you assume is the whole thing just because of a leaker instead of waiting for more information from Capcom themselves.

Also, you should be grateful that this game is being made and yet you complain for the roster size. You know, your vitriol about it is making me reconsider about it and just accept the roster because if it's like that, then OK, I get it you wanted more but you should be more accepting of what you're being given.

The game needs more time to be released and I find your frustration a bit unnecessary and tiring. It's time you and others should give Capcom and the game slack until more info comes out and it comes out, OK?

@Luigikun The leaker seemed fairly sure they only missed the one Capcom character, who we now know is Zero. Gradmaster Meio looks to be either an NPC or DLC and the leaker didn't have that information.

"Also, you should be grateful that this game is being made"

Really? This game isn't a gift. Capcom is making a product that you have to pay money for. If their work is sub par then there's no reason to fork over the cash.

They have three months left before release, which means they have at most about two months to actually work on the game. That's not a whole lot of time to change things up beyond some polishing. It's unrealistic to expect anything huge to happen.

This is silly. Game companies make games specifically so that people would like to play them. If people are put off by a game, then they have the right to explain why they don't like it, criticize it, and offer feedback. Are there people who do that solely to trash things? Yes. But there are always people who have legitimate issues and simply wish the company would do better.

Imagine how different the game world would be if companies refused to take player feedback into account. Nintendo wouldn't have made Breath of the Wild or Mario Odyssey if they ignored the feedback from Skyward Sword or 3D World. Sony would be selling $600 game consoles with weak first-party lineups. Microsoft would have released an always-online console that doesn't play used games. Bioware didn't have to do anything in response to the Mass Effect 3 ending criticisms, but they did.

Let's not forget that *the whole reason this game exists is due to fan feedback*. It's misguided as hell, but Capcom's pushing of this game's cinematic story mode is in direct response to Street Fighter V being harshly panned for its lack of significant offline modes. In fact, I would even say fighting games are the most important genre to take feedback into account specifically because they are so competitive. Balance patches exist specifically to address community concerns. Harada took feedback from Arabic players when designing Shaheen in Tekken 7. SNK specifically stated that the DLC characters in KOFXIV were due to fan requests. Even Smash Bros. 4 was directly made to compromise between fans of Melee and Brawl.

Bottom line is, if you don't take the market into account, then don't be surprised when your business ventures are received poorly.

"Also, you should be grateful that this game is being made and yet you complain for the roster size. You know, your vitriol about it is making me reconsider about it and just accept the roster because if it's like that, then OK, I get it you wanted more but you should be more accepting of what you're being given. "

Look, here's the deal. Capcom is a business. We're the customers. They want to make money by selling stuff to the customers.

If a business makes a product that customers don't want it, we don't buy it. Simple as that. A business isn't a charity and they don't owe us anything.

I've been very critical of Capcom for the past 6 years or so, but I do that specifically because I love their game series and what they have historically offered to the game community. But if we want to talk gratitude then I do have to give them credit for some things. I am grateful that they localized Tatsunoko VS Capcom and even gave it extra improvements from the original release. I'm grateful that they have re-released their Disney games, Mega Man classic games, Devil May Cry 4, or Dragon's Dogma on current-generation consoles. I'm grateful that they still make Phoenix Wright games even if they're digital only and spotty regarding localizations. I'm grateful they allowed Ryu and Mega Man to appear in Super Smash Bros.

There's no reason to be grateful that between this, Street Fighter V, and Ultra Street Fighter II, Capcom are devaluing their fighting games by releasing subpar entries that are not only worse than their predecessors, but lacking in comparison to their contemporary games in the same genre. I would have loved a new Marvel VS Capcom game because the originals are some of my favourites of all time. But if they're going to do it like this, there's no reason for me to not just get my fix by playing the ones that are already out there.

@NCZ you saying the leak is objective fact invalidates your entire argument. NEVER base your argument on a leak.

Ignoring that, when I said "popularity" I meant "marketability." Wolverine isn't marketable in the way they want, just like Cyclops and Cable weren't marketable in the way they wanted in 3. Also saying "what happened to Wolverine in the comics doesn't matter" is false, because Marvel could easily say "you can't use characters that are currently dead" or something. The fact Logan has been killed in 2 different continuities makes it clear they want him to stay dead everywhere for now, at least the original Logan.

Also yes, people like Nemesis (who we have no offical confirmation on), Spencer (maybe not the reboot) and Arthur, they're all classics and people are asking for an RE3 remake.

Finally, every sequel reuses assets, I've already explained this. MvC2 was nothing but a mishmash of reused assets seasoned with a cactus, a pirate, and a Servbot, plus that boring final boss. You're upset MvCI is doing what all the other ones did.

Son there's nuance to this. If some random anon on 4chan said "wow, my dad told me that goku is going to be in MVC Infinite" then that's not worth anyone's time.

The person who leaked that this game exists also leaked the full character roster. Everyone we've seen so far except Zero (with the caveat that they didn't know the last Capcom character) has been from it, and they also got correct that Black Panther would be DLC and that the roster would focus on the MCU. It's worth discussing.

"Wolverine isn't marketable in the way they want, just like Cyclops and Cable weren't marketable in the way they wanted in 3."

They're not marketable in the way Marvel wants in the sense that they aren't in the MCU, yes.

"Marvel could easily say "you can't use characters that are currently dead" or something."

That'd be stupid and has never stopped them before. Nobody cares that X character is dead in the comics. They just want to see Wolverine fight Dante.

"Finally, every sequel reuses assets, I've already explained this."

Man, the asset reuse is the least of my issues. I WISH they reused more assets. The roster is just MVC3's cut in half with a couple new people sprinkled in. If they're going to do that why not just build it off MVC3 to begin with? It's a waste.

@NAFEDUDE

MVC2's roster wasn't the result of advertising recent stuff. MVC2 was just a fanservice game thrown together as the culmination of the series.

1. Capcom breaks the bank with Street Fighter II.
2. Capcom gets X-Men license and makes a fighting game out of it. As a gag, they throw Akuma into it.
3. "Hey, we've got something cool going on here." X-Men VS Street Fighter is made by mashing up SFA2 and X-Men with some bonuses.
4. Similarly, Capcom makes a Marvel Super Heroes game, and then mashes that up with SFA2 to make Marvel Super Heroes VS Street Fighter.
5. "Hey, why stop there?" Capcom broadens the franchise even further with Marvel VS Capcom.
6. Marvel VS Capcom 2 is made with the intention of featuring every character in the series up to that point, along with new ones. The emphasis on Street Fighter and X-Men is not simply because those were the most popular series at the time, but because they're the ones who had the most representation to work with by starting it all.

MVC Infinite isn't the same thing. I would even argue it's the complete opposite. MVC2's roster was what it was because they actively chose to *include* as many characters from previous games as they could, but the nature of the series' progression meant that things were somewhat lopsided. MVC Infinite is what it is because they're just chopping MVC3's roster in half while going out of their way to *exclude* a significant portion of them.

Like you mentioned Blum, but Wolverine and Taskmaster didn't sound alike, so it wasn't an issue.

And it already seems to be the case with other characters in this game who share a VA. It certainly doesn't sound like RCS is voicing Cap, but he is voicing Chris Redfield once again. So you can't really discount the possibility.

All I'm saying is if it is true, it's a stupid decision. It's insulting both to the original VA and to the players.

Chun-Li off TOMH doesnt quite sound like Alexis, but if there's any recast I'd assume it's her. On that note, however, I'd have to wonder if they're keeping the JP voices for the JP characters (because there's cutscenes where they interact w/Marvel), or if this is prelaid in English entirely. Ideally I'd want dual-language for everyone, although I don't quite think the history is there to assume that.

What I'd like to know is how long the game has been in development. A quick turnaround time is great news if a game has been in development for a long time. But since Capcom had spent much of their time since mid-2014 working on Street Fighter V, I'm not sure when this game would have come into play. I kind of have a suspicion it must've been at some point since last May, since by then:

A - SFV was released
B - Disney started allowing other developers to license their IPs again.

But that's just my speculation, so keep that in mind. From May 2016 to September 2017 is a bit under a year and a half...

For comparison:

MVC3: Mid-2008 - February 2011 = 2 and a half years.

Street Fighter X Tekken: (Late?) 2009 - March 2012 = Slightly over 2 years.

Street Fighter V: Mid-2014 - February 2016 = A bit over a year and a half.

Yeah, it's true. Capcom's fighters last gen were mainly done by outside companies (Dimps for SFIV/SFxTK, Eighting for Tatsunoko/MVC3). This gen with SFV and this, they went back to doing them in-house, but with a good amount of outsourcing. Outsourcing happens literally all the time in game development so that in itself was nothing new, but I remember people noticing it primarily because it's why V's character models were kind of inconsistent in quality. This is probably similar.

tbh I appreciate Capcom's more nuanced casting over simply voice-matching the previous ones. You can tell when you compare the dub VAs to the JP actors; they feel less like referenced sound-alikes & more close to their personal choices. If that makes any sense... ?

@Scrappy-Fan92

That's actually something that's been on my mind a while. People overestimate how often Alexis Tipton replaces Laura Bailey in things.

In the past year or so, Laura Bailey has been replaced in 8 roles due to scheduling conflicts. Alexis Tipton has taken only 3 of them because of schedule conflicts. Platinum the Trinity, Kid Trunks, and Lucina.

On the other hand, there's 5 other roles Laura has been replaced in that went to entirely different people.

Rise (Persona 4) = Ashly Burch
Luna/Diana (Zero Escape) = Eden Riegel
Lagoona Blue (Monster High) = Larissa Gallagher
Nozomi (Shin Megami Tensei) = Karen Strassman
And now Chun Li.

Alexis Tipton is the most frequent person who replaces Laura's roles, but it's not a universal thing. It's not like the Troy Baker/Matt Mercer scenario because in many of those cases, Troy Baker was literally telling the casting directors to get Matt Mercer. Laura and Alexis don't seem to be doing that. It's just a decision made on the whims of the two casting companies that primarily work with Alexis (Funimation and Cup of Tea). Other places just hire whoever.

As a note, there's two instances where Laura was replaced seemingly for creative reasons, not availability (Dragon Ball Kai - Eraza and Naruto - Sarada), since she kept her other roles in those. Dragon Ball went to Alexis and Naruto went to Cherami Leigh. Which again still sticks to what I was getting at earlier.

This is Marvel VS Capcom 3.
http://www.fightersgeneration.com/np8/mvc3u/screens/mvc3u-s43.jpg

This is MVC Infinite.
http://i.imgur.com/N3rovIp.jpg

Aside from MVC3, all of these games are made in the same engine - Unreal Engine. Guilty Gear is even made in an older version of the engine. MVCI simply does not compare to any of them.

Tekken wins in terms of sheer technical prowess, while the rest are stylized enough that even though they don't always push the envelope to the same extent, they still look fantastic both in motion and when paused. MVC3, with its inked outlines, bright colours, and cartoony models, goes for a "comic book come to life" style approach. Marvel VS Capcom Infinite doesn't go for either an especially-realistic or an especially-stylized art style in particular. It's just an awkward in-between stage where the characters look almost like they're made of plastic. This lack of direction makes it feel a lot less flavourful than the other games. Especially note the characters' faces on the lifebars - the expressions are nowhere near as animated as in MVC3. Rather than making a headshot that is custom-made and suiting each characters personality, they simply all stare forward. The HQ stage there is also very empty, featureless, and has few details. Little things like that go a long way into the art direction and personality of a game.

Finally... The faces.

@NCZ - I would have taken a simple "Yes, yes you are." lol

Also I'm not sure if Guilty Gear would really count since it's clearing using 2D animated characters compared to the other games which are fully 3D

Also how do we know they won't polish the model up before the final release? It's not uncommon for that kind of stuff to get fixed overtime

There was a famous moment in the reveal trailer where the game started normally, and then the camera spun around 360 degrees. I will never forget how hard my jaw dropped when I saw that. It's the single best usage of cel-shaded graphics I've ever seen in a game. Just unbelievable.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0CRGnRmVi8

I dunno, I mean, things can happen (after all, SNK prioritized gameplay over graphics for KOF XIV, polished them until launch and are still patching in improvements), but with five months to go and the majority of that likely being spent on debug work, I don't think it's going to be a night and day improvement unfortunately.

God this game looks absolutely awful. Horrible art direction and modelling, character roster is purely based on the same old MCU stuff. Storyline sounds like a 12-year-old's fan fiction of what MVC4 would be like circa 2000 ("Ultron Sigma"... really?). 6 preorder DLC characters is the same old song and dance we've seen with every Capcom fighter for the past several years. Hard pass from me. Completely uninspired sequel with none of the charm and colourful insanity that made the original MVC games as balls-to-the-wall memorable and pure fun as they were. No faith Capcom can deliver a competent fighter in this day and age or that Marvel aren't using this as yet another attempt to shill the MCU.

And besides, i wouldn't jump to the "MCU shilling" conclusion just yet. I mean, there was no way guys like Hulk or Thor would be left out anyway.

Plus, Ultron has his classic look and not his MCU/Spader.

I've also read a lot of weird comic book stories, Ultron Sigma is tame by comparison. I mean, there was a story where Ultron, Red Skull, Loki and Doom fused together, Ultron and Sigma fusing at least makes sense since they are both A.I.

Screenshots are screenshots. The game's visual direction and character roster are lacking and what I've read of the changes to the gameplay so far do not impress me. It comes off as extremely surface-level and simplified.

"And besides, i wouldn't jump to the "MCU shilling" conclusion just yet. I mean, there was no way guys like Hulk or Thor would be left out anyway."

Everyone has their MCU designs except Ultron (who was prominently in the MCU anyway). The X-Men, Spider-Man characters etc. are completely absent so far. Captain Marvel is present as the incarnation that's getting a movie. We already know that Marvel pushed for various characters in MVC3 to promote the MCU (especially Rocket Raccoon and Nova who were complete unknowns at the time), hence the massive influx of Avengers and the minimal emphasis on X-Men and Spider-Man.

Not to mention the fact that absolutely everything Marvel-related is pretty much aping the MCU. Even the comics, where they go out of their way to downplay Fox-owned and non-MCU characters like the X-Men. Considering that and that the leaks prior to the official announcement all indicated that's what they were going for with the game, I'm not holding my breath.
Cazador

@NCZ

And respfully, i'd disagree, from what i've seen the combat is still the classic over the top, fast pace Mahvel style. And a screenshot gives you more than something read.

And again, not of that changes the fact that all the characters mentioned were shoe is anyways. In fact, people would be mad if characters like Thor were left out. So they don't really work as evidence of MCU shilling, especially since Ultron has his comic book look, like you yourself said.

Also, Spider-Man is in the MCU, if he had been announced, wouldn't that be "MCU shilling" too?

Besides, the only ones that were said to be in danger of being excluded were the Fox owned characters, so Spider-Man characters are safe. In fact, Spidey is a shoe in.

Though "characters" is stretching it, since the only Spider-Man characters we've gotten in all eight MvC games are Spider-Man and Venom.

Speaking of, if the other Spider-Man characters we get are Vulture and Shocker, then i can see it as MCU shilling.

Though i do like Shocker.

@Cazador

The reason I don't take screenshots at face value right away is because cherrypicking is way too easy with them. There's a reason why the term "bullshot" is a thing. Too often do they portray scenarios or visuals that are impossible in the actual game, or framed more spectacularly than they actually are. I just think videos and impressions are a better way to judge a game. Screenshots don't always paint the entire picture, since the whole point of them in an interactive medium is they give a very controlled, purely surface-level image.

MVC as a series is one that is very flashy, yes, but it's one that also has a lot of substance underneath it. Pulling off the insane, multihit combos ending in a spectacular super move isn't as easy as it looks, and it's rewarding when it happens.

Right off the bat, we know this game is removing the assists and toning things down from 3-on-3 to 2-on-2, so that's already a lot of extra gameplay nuance gone. You can now switch with your teammates freely mid-combo, whereas part of the strategy in prior games was the wait times between assists and tags which meant you had to time yourself very carefully. Along with that, we have the Infinity Stones which are giving me bad flashbacks to Street Fighter X Tekken. We don't know much about the control scheme yet, but so far what I do know tells me that this game is going to be much more simplified and play down the substance in favour of flash. When being flashy was only one aspect of what made the original games so special.

"And again, not of that changes the fact that all the characters mentioned were shoe is anyways. In fact, people would be mad if characters like Thor were left out. So they don't really work as evidence of MCU shilling, especially since Ultron has his comic book look, like you yourself said."

The X-Men has historically been a massive part of the MVC series. Capcom's crossovers are literally rooted in them. The series began as X-Men VS Street Fighter, and before that with Akuma's guest appearance in X-Men: Children of the Atom. Since then, Wolverine has been one of the most prominent characters in MVC, always displayed prominently in the box and promotional artwork, and being one of the first characters to be revealed. So for Wolverine to so far be completely absent from all promotional material, *along with* the other lines of thinking suggesting more of an MCU influence, that seems like a big red flag to me.

"Also, Spider-Man is in the MCU, if he had been announced, wouldn't that be "MCU shilling" too?"

If he was based heavily on his MCU appearance? Yeah.

"
Besides, the only ones that were said to be in danger of being excluded were the Fox owned characters, so Spider-Man characters are safe. In fact, Spidey is a shoe in.

Though "characters" is stretching it, since the only Spider-Man characters we've gotten in all eight MvC games are Spider-Man and Venom."

Part of the point. Considering how famous and significant Spider-Man is, I always found it strange that MVC3 didn't reveal him until fairly late, and that he was the only one present. Like, Guardians of the Galaxy had more representatives than Spider-Man did. In 2011.

You call all these characters "shoe-ins" and people would be mad if they were left out, but what makes them shoe-ins? Thor was never in the series until MVC3. Cyclops, a series staple, was absent from that game, which collected a lot of fan outcry. Wouldn't people also be mad if characters like him or Storm or Magneto or Wolverine were left out? Why is it that fans of those characters aren't being assuaged right off the bat the way the Avengers are?

While it's true that it is mainly the X-Men and Fantastic Four, who are going to be shafted here, it's pretty clear what direction is being taken here. Like I'm not even specifically talking about this game. As I have pointed out, shaping Marvel media in order to promote the MCU has been the cross-media trend. The comics are downplaying non-MCU elements and characters. The cartoons are based entirely on the MCU. So is all the merchandise. X-Men and Fantastic Four have no cartoon to call their own. This isn't a theory. This is the actual direction Marvel have been taking with their IP in the past several years.

Fair, but just reading about something without visuals doesn't give you a clear picture either.

And from what we've seen, the Infinity Stones aren't like the gems from SxT. If anything, it's like Marvel Super Heroes, which also used the Infinity Stones.

"If he was based heavily on his MCU appearance? Yeah."

MCU Spidey's costume isn't drastically different from his original "Amazing" one. But i guess you could be talking about his age.


"Since then, Wolverine has been one of the most prominent characters in MVC, always displayed prominently in the box and promotional artwork, and being one of the first characters to be revealed."

True, but some folk wouldn't be too upset if that got tone down when it comes to Wolverine, some do think he is overpushed, or used to be. That being said, i do hope he shows up here, because i do at least agree it would be weird not to have him.


"Part of the point. Considering how famous and significant Spider-Man is, I always found it strange that MVC3 didn't reveal him until fairly late, and that he was the only one present."

They wanted to save him for the Tokyo Game Show, remember? Spider-Man is insanely popular in Japan. We'll probably get him revealed earlier this time, the game will come out before the Tokyo Game Show this year after all.

Anyway, while we are on the topic, i do hope we get more Spidey characters this time. Like Doc Ock, who was considered for 3.

"Like, Guardians of the Galaxy had more representatives than Spider-Man did. In 2011. "

The Guardians only had one character in UMvC3, Rocket. And no, Nova isn't part of the Guardians. He has teamed up with them, but he was never a member.

"You call all these characters "shoe-ins" and people would be mad if they were left out, but what makes them shoe-ins? "

Well, it should be obvious, He's a well loved character and people used to think it was a travesty that Thor didn't show up until 3. He is popular and this time people didn't doubt he'd show up in Infinite.

There's also a lot of demands for guys like Loki and Black Panther, so if they do make it, i would not peg their inclusion on just them being from the MCU, there is fan demand for them.

"While it's true that it is mainly the X-Men and Fantastic Four, who are going to be shafted here, it's pretty clear what direction is being taken here. Like I'm not even specifically talking about this game. As I have pointed out, shaping Marvel media in order to promote the MCU has been the cross-media trend.

True.

Though Marvel seems to have eased up on the X-Men, going by some of the other games. Marvel Heroes and Contest of Champions have been allowed to add new X-Men characters again. So, it seems to be improving.

F4 still seem to be persona non grata though.

@NCZ Outside of cap and iron, who else has their MCU design? Thor's in the costume he's had since 2007, Hawkeye's is from 2011 which has elements of what his Avengers costume would look like but doesn't match any of them, and Captain Marvel hasn't shown up yet in the MCU. And the Hulk is the Hulk. I'm not denying MCU shilling, but they aren't just using the MCU designs.

@GothamRed

Rocket Raccoon does too, Captain Marvel's very presence is MCU-inspired, Hawkeye is kind of a hybrid as you say. Anyway though, point taken on the rest.

But regardless I think this is getting a bit hung up on one point of what I'm getting at. To be blunt, comics and Marvel stuff are not really my bag so it's not purely being MCU-inspired in itself that's the issue for me. The Marvel side could consist of a fish on legs and it wouldn't affect me personally.

It annoys me because of what it represents. The entire reason Marvel are obsessed with promoting the MCU and snuffing out the X-Men, Fantastic Four, etc. is pure corporate malarkey and I hate when that becomes the driving factor for creative decisions. And that's why I'm not crazy for the game - I've said enough what I dislike about modern Capcom's business/game handling decisions and the sheer amount of red flags here don't make me think the outcome'll be any different than any of their recent endeavours, but throw in the stuff I don't like about modern marvel and maaaaan I just could not be less interested in the game if I wanted to be. No matter what, I can't shake the cheap, rushed cash-in vibe from it. I've said I didn't like MVC3 because it seemed soulless. Infinite so far is making MVC3 look like Aretha Franklin.

It's not like there were that many F4 characters in the MvC series to begin with, besides Doom and Super-Skrull.

So i'm not entirely sure what the issue with it is now, since for most of these games, we only had Doom.

Chances are we wouldn't be getting F4 characters either way. Plus the only one people really care about is Doom.

I really like the idea of that. It definitely keeps actors motivated to do better & keep up their prowess on those parts.

Most companies have guidelines on how their characters/IPs can be portrayed and try to follow them pretty closely.

Marvel/DC it probably gets blurrier since there are so many different adaptations and re-imaginings and all that. But you can clearly see overall trends which show that there is a desire for consistency in certain areas.

@Fulgore - When MVC3 started development in the late 2000s, the 2006 Fantastic Four cartoon was the most recent adaptation. So I guess they decided they would be consistent with that. Also for what it's worth, Jonathan Klein stated for the Capcom cast they did auditions in Canada and the US, but evidently it didn't work out in that case. They did get Brad Swaile for Street Fighter X Tekken though.
huzaifa_ahmed
said at 12:38 PM on Sun Apr 23 2017
@NCZ By trends & consistency, do you mean one particular VA for a character, or more just general tone? With Disney, they seem to go for the most exact voice-match possible, & it seems to tend to be that way for animated film-> animated series replacements.

I've also heard the idea that Japan tends to be more loyal to their VAs, & while I can consider that possibility, I hear the argument mostly discussing dubs vs. subs, & I think that perception is blurred by the lack of audience understanding of how dub industries work.

Nakamura & Fujiwara for Cap & Stark, f'r instance. They could also cast newer actors & we'd get to see how that market casts fresh dubs (ala Bang Zoom's Super dub).

We didnt actually get full dual-audio - we did get "original audio", but that's not quite the same thing that I want. The Kingdom Hearts games (which are similarly a Disney x JP company) get dual (& even 3-5x) audio throughout the whole game. If we get dubs...why not the Japanese players get everything in their language too? If that makes sense. I think it's a cool idea.

They rejected Japanese voice acting for the Marvel characters in MVC3 because they didn't think it sounded right for Marvel characters to speak Japanese.

@NCZ It may not be your intent, but at least the way it's worded sounds so...*xenophobic* (beyond just really silly). There are plenty of English voices for the very clearly Asian characters in Street Fighter - in this game *itself*. There are plenty of Japanese voices for Marvel characters, there are a few (DC, but still) comic book games with Japanese dubs IIRC.

This sounds like very faulty reasoning (not on your part, moreso on the wording of whoever the writer behind the official statement) & there's possibly more to it.

The Japanese audience prefers watching subtitled movies in their native language. Movie theatres always tend to be subtitled. Most countries in Europe are like this too. They're used to Hollywood characters speaking English.

On the flipside, to put it in a blunt way most native English cultures have it in their heads because of all that they can get by only with English being all they need (especially in the US, which is so much bigger than Europe but has nowhere near the variety of languages) so they tend to want everything to conform to them. The whole idea of denouncing subtitles because "why would you watch/listen to something in a language you don't understand" is something that I only ever seem to see from Americans. It's kind of a shame.

@NCZ Where to begin here...I think I can generally agree with "power corrupts" in the sense of language barriers here. Non-English-speakers have it much harder simply reading/viewing classic Western works of both the arts & sciences. It's very difficult to learn a new language as an adult, & I would say that it makes one an overall stronger person. Language is part & parcel of a work of art, & it makes sense that someone would want to experience something with its language *as intact as possible*. However, as you said yourself, subtitles are only a halfway, & the majority of the audience is still missing something. Subtitles dont technicly alter anything -they simply explain the dialogue- but you do lose some of the intended experience by simply being not fluent in the language of the target audience. (That's why things like Yuri on Ice are mostly in Japanese even though its mostly European & non-Asian characters). The solution to this would be an integration of cultures to the point where no audience or language was marginalized. I love foreign actors, yeah, but I really think that's the dream.

Furthermore...while I still agree with the idea that Hollywood & Western audiences having the most money & influence, makes us the most responsible for what we do...I think that saying that "Japanese audiences prefer subtitles" is, I think, a blanket statement, & one that I feel misrepresents the audience. True, they likely have read more subtitles than the average English-speaker, but there are *plenty* of Japanese viewers who watch dubs (of both animation *and* live-action). Arguably a massive part of their voice-over industry is foreign-dubbing - & while you can argue "that's just because American imperialism & monopoly on entertainment", sure...at the same time, if the Japanese didnt *like* dubs overall, then there is no *way* that the dubs would constantly be using their top-level actors. Chikao Ōtsuka, when defending against the term "seiyuu" being used to denigrate voice actors, was discussing it in the context of *live-action dubbing* - ergo it was a *huge* part of their industry & arguably its major foundation. Aside from just Japan, there are loads of European countries that get dubs of Hollywood works, too, so while certainly there are more of them that learn to deal with subtitles (vs Americans), there is obviously quite a demand for dubs worldwide too.

* Russian anime fandom, despite Russia being plagued with myriad piracy issues, is so insistent about dubs that they will usually conduct fandubs & the majority of the fandom will torrent them (over pirating the originals). Whereas English-speaking fans went from legal dubs to (illegal) subs (then hopefully legal subs).

In Marvel's *specific* case: the actors from the live-action dubs reprised their roles in Madhouse's anime (& JARVIS's actor in Toei's as well), a Japanese product based on a Marvel property - same as the Marvel vs Capcom series. So, I wonder what would keep them from using those actors in a video game. Beyond that, on a personal level, I'm used to your generally enjoying & being supportive of dubs, & with all due respect I am a tad confused here because your comment seems to be in line with people who avoid dubs on principle.

@NCZ Oh man, I apologize for how long & "wall of text" this got from typing on my phone. TLDR: Japan dub industry's huge & they use Marvel dub VAs in the Marvel anime too, so it's odd that they dont do it for a game.
NCZ (Admin)

@huzaifa_ahmed

It's not a sweeping statement, it's fact.

The majority of theatres that carry foreign movies show them with subtitles. Dubbing is usually done for family, child-oriented, or animated movies.

"Japanese people have long preferred subtitles because of their strong adoration of foreign culture, giving foreign movies an aura of cool thanks to the language barrier. The country’s high literacy rate and the nature of kanji, which can convey a great deal of information in a small space have also made subtitles easily digestible."

"In Western countries, however, it’s the reverse that is of course true: Most foreign movies are shown with the actors’ voices dubbed in the local language."

That said dubs of major blockbusters have become more common, but often it's for older viewers who have trouble reading the subtitles, as well as because they can be impractical for 3D movies.

https://injapan.gaijinpot.com/play/culture/2010/09/07/more-western-movies-being-dubbed-as-japanese-tire-of-subtitles/

https://www.angloinfo.com/how-to/japan/tokyo/lifestyle/entertainment/english-language-cinema

Marvel cartoons in Japan are specifically targeted to young boys and exist mainly to sell toys. The movies which appeal to a broader audience including teens and adults are usually watched with subtitles.

Modern console games in Japan usually target teens and young adults and the trend is similar. Call of Duty games are released in both a subtitled and a dubbed version, and it's the subtitled version that sells more.

Many countries in Europe have a similar dynamic going on. Dubs are usually for cartoons or children's media and people prefer watching films and dramas with subtitles. Most cultures around the world are used to consuming media this way and the fact that the US isn't is down to its general disinterest in/obscurity of foreign films and the lack of overall exposure to other languages socially and culturally. This isn't some condemnation of dubs but just an explanation for why it only ever seems to be English speakers who consider it odd to consume media in another language.

I was thinking maybe Kyle McCarley as he has a pretty smooth voice that'd be suited to X's more stoic & also hotblooded design.

I hope that Capcom will bring characters from lesser known titles to this game. For example Linn Kurosawa from Alien vs Predator. Going by history, Resident Evil characters have made appearances in these crossover titles. I hope Leon Kennedy, Ada Wong or Jake Muller get the call up.

As for Marvel characters, Black Cat, Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy) and Carnage would be welcomed additions. Assuming Spider-man is in the game; I like to see Marvel be ballsy and have either Ben Reilly or Miles Morales as the playable web slinger.

Now for the voice track. Will Disney spend the yen and have a true multi-lingual experience with both Marvel and Capcom characters?

Spiderman/Peter Parker to have Scarlet Spider and Spider-Gwen colour palettes? Sure, I guess. As for Spider-woman costume for Peter Parker Spider-man, that would be... interesting.

If Peter Parker and Miles Morales were to be playable in this game, you can't really have both being called Spider-man.
Cazador
said at 12:01 AM on Fri Dec 16 2016
@GothamRed People thought the same of Wolverine and X-23 last time and they ended up fighting very differently.

So you're probably wrong about Peter and Gwen hypothetically similar moves, when history shows us that wouldn't be the case.

And Spider-gwen wouldn't be a costume, since Capcom obviously won't change the VA for an alt costume.

Also, we had Akuma and Ryu in last time, so...

That all said, Miles has powers unique to him, so he could be more likely.
GothamRed
said at 11:40 PM on Sun Dec 18 2016
@Cazador x-23 and wolverine are actually different enough to warrant a split though. Logan doesn't have a claw in his feet like Laura does for one. Those 2 are more along the line of she-hulk and hulk or even batman and nightwing. There's aesthetic similarities, but they don't fight the same way. Gwen and Peter both fight with the same general acrobatic style and have basically the same equipment (at least in terms of what would be carried over). They may Ryu and Ken it, but there's really nothing that makes her different than peter in this context outside of being female (for a roster slot not necessarily character-wise). There's always the chance she could make it, but I'd rather the diversify the playstyles more. Plus even if Capcom hasn't done in the past, they've been adapting more ideas from other fighting games like Mortal Kombat (like having a story mode in V) to appeal to wider audience, and MKX had costumes with different voice clips so who knows, maybe they'll adapt that too. It's too early yo tell, either option is viable.

At least there's actually a Mega Man this time.

On the other side, it's bad that we won't see Dr. Doom, Deadpool and especially X-Men. It's like having any Capcom crossover game or any SF without Ryu. BTW, who would you like to see the most? From Capcom, aside from Akuma ( who will certainly appear due to his "push" in recent time from appearing in One Minute melee for the third and final time, then in T7 and SFV), I would like to see Asura the most, maybe Bison and Pyron, and Carnage and Venom from Marvel.

At first I thought that it was either Thanos or Ultron, or maybe Sigma, but later I thought ( since it's a crossover game) that maybe it's Ultron and Sigma fused. You know like, Sigmultron or Ultronigma.

@baltazzarknight Ultronigma, I like the sound of that.

@NCZ Yeah, I don't like that Marvel is phasing out those characters. And it's very likely that none of them will be in this game. Also without Deadpool, no Nolan North to reprise him :(

I hope they don't do that and at least put a few X-Men in this new Marvel Vs Capcom game I mean, who exactly would replace them if they don't return for this game?

@NCZ As much as I hate it, there is a bright side. No Sentinel.

@shadowlord That may be the one unexpected advantage.
