Capcom Holding Marvel vs Capcom Stage at Jump
Could additional character announcements be coming?
This year's Jump Festa will see a slightly different type of "manga" as Marvel vs Capcom 3 gets some space in Capcom's booth.
Capcom previously announced that the game will be playable along side Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and Monster Hunter Diary. Today, it revealed that the game will also have a stage event. This will take place on both days of the show, from 12:00 to 12:45.
Stage shows tend to be Capcom's location of choice for fighting game character announcements, and with 10 characters still waiting to be announced for MVC3, versus fighting fans may want to be on the lookout when Jump kicks off on the 18th.
Other stage events in Capcom's booth include a Monster Hunter Portable 3rd special stage, a one day Sengoku Basara 3 special stage, and a Monster Hunter Diary "Let's Poogie Race" tournament. See the full schedule here.
Capcom will be giving away goodies to those who sample games at the booth. Items include a Monster Hunter Portable 3rd clear file, a Monster Hunter Diary post card set and a Marvel vs Capcom 3 B3-sized poster.
