Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) takes the cake for trolling its fans. This game in itself is a giant troll to those people who bought the original one. They released UMvC3 less than a year after MvC3, and packed it with what should had been in the original version. This is not saying UMVC3 isn’t a fun fighting game, but there is a lot about it that ticked off a lot of people. The one thing that stands out in my mind though is how badly Capcom trolled its fan with the lack of Mega Man.
Fans clamored and hoped for Mega Man to return to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but it was to no avail. Some speculate the fact that it might be because the creator of Mega Man had left; but the most insulting piece came when they announced that Mega Man X would be a skin for Zero. Also, they included a level that teases Mega Man not being caught or deceased unlike some other unlucky Marvel vs. Capcom 2 veterans. It just seems like they are completely teasing and giving fans everything except returning the blue bomber to the fray.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was a huge troll in 2011 for good reason. It was an update to a game that wasn’t even a year old, and the game was full of content that really should had been in the first release. While its still a good game, a lot of people felt that it was a ploy to fix mistakes and just cash in on the fans. Capcom… I hope you’re proud, because you are one of biggest trolls of 2011.
