New Player Introduction

Welcome to Marvel vs Capcom 3. This is Shoryuken.com's Hyper Guide, a constantly evolving bible for all things MvC3. The goal here is to integrate text and video to give you everything you need to succeed in MvC3. Players will find this fast and punishing game difficult to put down, but we recommend doing so once in a while to study the Hyper Guide!

Marvel vs Capcom 3 was released by Capcom in February 2011 and is part of Capcom's Versus Series. Marvel vs Capcom 3 was the first of the franchise to be released only on home consoles. In November of 2011 a whole new update with additional characters and modes called Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 was released as a separate retail disk.

Terminology

Throughout the guide there will be a lot of jargon thrown around and, unless you know what these terms are referring to, it might be difficult to understand some of the more complex lingo and slang used. For example, what is Hit Stun and Block Stun? What do we mean when we use the word "frames?" So before we begin, please take some time to look over the glossary to familiarize yourself with some of these terms so the rest of the guide will make more sense.
