Capcom has finally revealed Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, along with a release date, a batch of screenshots, a handful of videos and a list of the game’s new fighters.

Fighting game fans have been speculating on the existence of an upgraded version of Marvel Vs Capcom 3 for months, and today at the San Diego Comic Con, Capcom made things official: Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 hits the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this November.

The new game features a host of balance tweaks and alterations to its predecessor’s gameplay options, but most importantly, it also features twelve new combatants.

Representing the Capcom side, we have Strider Hiryu, Firebrand, Vergil, Frank West, Phoenix Wright, and Nemesis.

On the Marvel side, the game boasts Ghost Rider, Nova, Dr. Strange, Hawkeye, Iron Fist and Rocket Raccoon.

Taken alongside the original game’s 38 fighters, this brings the total Marvel Vs Capcom 3 roster to a nice, round 50 characters.

Pricing details on Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 have yet to be revealed, though Capcom claims the game will be “mid-priced” once it reaches retail. Whether or not the company is exploring the possibility of releasing the additional content as downloadable content for the original Marvel Vs Capcom 3 — much as they did with the recent Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition — is anyone’s guess.

You can find a gallery of the game’s brand new screenshots below, footage of the game in action embedded above, and a handful of additional video clips on the official Capcom Unity YouTube page.
