How did Capcom gain the rights to X-Men characters for MVC3 then? Clearly other companies are licensed to use those characters, no?
MUA2 sucked, but none of the XML games did, so they should keep THAT franchise going. It's been years and people STILL want it.
They can use them because Marvel gave them permission to do so, but they can't make games based solely on them as that's Activision's territory.
Also, you guys forget about this?
This is awesome. Free to play, and the chance to actually play as characters from the comics. Nova and Squirrel Girl are playable. Let that sink in for you.
Only unsure thing is that Dr.Doom is the main villain? That makes it sound like it's heroes only, or that Doom won't be playable? EEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHH.
Glad the made it free to play, there will probably be a lot of good stuff locked though and you'll need to pay to unlock it but I like that way much better than subscription.
Cant wait to play as Thor in an open world! Or Nightcrawler, or Spidey its been too long without a free roam spidey. Its gonna be pretty tough choosing a character to play as though :P
