Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds features a number of modes for you to delve into including offline battles, challenges and an extensive online multiplayer mode. The first thing you’ll need to do once you’ve chosen your preferred mode is pick your characters.
There are plenty of characters to select from at the outset of the game, with more available to unlock the deeper you progress through the storyline and develop your fighting skills. You’ll find that trying different combinations of characters is useful in developing your skills, and when you find a trio that suits your fighting style, you’ll soon be unstoppable.
Marvel vs Capcom 3 differs from other fighting games in that you have the ability to call on your teammates in the middle of a brawl to back you up. To do this, tap the L1 or R1 button and watch as your ally leaps on-screen and performs a devastating special attack. Calling on your partners at the right moment is vital to surviving battles, and can help you master eye-popping combination attacks both on the ground and in the air. Alternatively, you can switch to another character if your health is running low by holding down the L1 or R1 button.
At the bottom of the screen, you'll find Hyper Combo Gauge. Fill it by performing attacks and blocks and, once it begins to glow, you can pull off a powerful special move using a combination of button presses and movements with the left stick. Each character has different attacks, so it’s a good idea to hit the training room before your first fight and learn the moves. With a little bit of practice you’ll soon be dishing out knockouts in their droves.
