Niitsuma Tweets About UMVC3 – Patch Coming Before the End of the Year

UMVC3 producer Ryota Niitsuma answered a couple questions about UMVC3 on his Twitter feed today. The first came from zyayokuhotenjin who asked if there would be a patch to fix all the infinites and bugs found in UMVC3 thus far. Niitsuma responded simply by saying that a patch would be coming before the year is over.

VINO200x wondered if the game would have a lifespan comparable to Street Fighter IV, with multiple iterations past Ultimate. Niitsuma said this would not be the case. There are no plans to release any version of MVC3 past ultimate at this time.

However, for those of you hoping for balance patches, you might not want to hold your breath. When he was asked about what would be done about overpowered characters like Wesker, he responded that it’s a difficult problem, but they are already working on many things for the upcoming patch and it’s hard enough to get it out by the end of the year as it is. Of course, he didn’t outright come out and deny that there would be balance fixes, but I have the sneaking suspicion that Wesker will be removing his shades for some time.
