In non-related E3 news, we heard some buzz from Capcom a deal with DC that was close to completion (as of April 2006). In the original agreement, the first planned game was to be none other than DC vs. Street Fighter. At this point though, the licensing hasn't been finalized and we aren't sure whether this it's at a halt or is still in the works. We confirmed this news with both sides, Capcom and DC and discussions between the two was/is in the works. We really, really hope this game comes out, because as much as we love Marvel characters, DC characters are our favorites. Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, yeah, this would be awesome.

We reported two years ago that Capcom was planning on a DC vs. Marvel vs. Capcom and as we know today, this won't happen only because of the complexity in the legalities between not two, but three companies. Yes, it all comes down to money and the royalties that Marvel charges now because of it's current high demanded IP's, it's not as profitable as it once was.

In more non-related E3 news, we finally discovered from Marvel reps. the reasoning of why there was no X-Live feature in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for the Xbox. Marvel at the time wasn't too familiar with how the Xbox Live online service worked and thought that Capcom was going to make residual income off each game played online, hence they wanted royalties based off how many times a gamer would go online for battle. We suspect that there's more to it than this, but this was how the Marvel representative interpreted reasoning of why the deal fell through.

Next up, JAMMA 44th AM Show in September 2006, Tokyo, Japan. In the same month, Tokyo Game Show 2006. We'll be there for both shows and have a full report and hopefully videos also.

I've said it before and I'll say it again Marvel is nothing more then a greedy pack of bastards (just google marvel vs city of heroes)

You know I used to hope that Capcom would have a fighting game with DC characters when I was younger, and I kind of gave up on the idea. This is cool news to me, I'm eager to hear more about it haha.

Yeah I remember that lawsuit. Cryptic made their character creation engine just too damn good, and it was insanely easy to have your very own [insert favorite Marvel character here] look-a-like.

As for the topic at hand, I wonder if they'll be staying with their 2d roots or going full-on 3d with this one. Not sure how it would do in Japan, but if the comic fans get behind it, then it will do well over here whether it's 2d or not.

Since Batman is insanely popular in Japan, I can see DC vs Capcom being a hit.

What interesting about City of Heroes is DC gave them like a 100 page book of what not to use, for the game and the character creater, while Marvel gave them stacks of books with what they couldn't use. Cryptic also enforced names and what not. What it all came down to is Marvel wanted to have their own super hero MMO and wanted to shutdown CoH, so they wouldn't have compatition and also cause they didn't want to have to check CoH everytime they made a new comic character.

My money's on it being 3d, because if there is one thing Capcom hates doing its drawing new goddamn sprites.

If they can keep the gameplay 2d like the classic VS games and just use 3d graphics this game could, potentially, be the shit.
