Concept videos for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 are always exciting, especially when such videos are devoid of characters like Doctor Doom and Vergil. In the video below, pat728 has given us just that as Nova and Arthur team up to throw down.
One of the main strengths of this pairing is the fact that Arthur’s dagger assist leaves opponents in so much blockstun that Nova has free reign to run his high/low mixups–he’s even able to go so far as to attempt two overheads on the same assist if he so pleases. This duo also offers up plenty of situations where Nova will be left with frame advantage in the case of a block, or with the ability to follow a hit with a combo of his choosing.
Additionally, this team has access to some particularly nasty incoming mixups as well as ways to hit-confirm into easy crumples in the event that you want to tag in a third member of the party, who could very well be a top-tier contender, to finish the plate.
Of course, a video like this wouldn’t be complete without some exciting combos, which pat728 has included in bulk, so be sure to check it out below and let us know what you think.
