Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be arriving on the PlayStation Vita as one of the many launch games for Sony's new handheld. I went hands-on in a couple of matches and, shocker, UMvC3 is pretty identical to the console versions. The huge fighting roster will remain the same and there will be both local and online multiplayer.
So what's different? Well the obvious addition is in touch screen controls. The touch screen stuff wasn't available in the demo I went hands-on with, but basically you'll just touch your character a series of times to get him to perform a variety of attacks. You'll also touch the X Factor or Hyper Meter bars in order to activate them during battle.
You'll have the option of playing UMvC3 with either touch, button input or a combination of the two. It's up to you and you won't have to worry about balance issues as Capcom will have separate matchmaking lobbies setup so players don't have to deal with touch screen players if they don't want to.
The last thing you should know is that there's going to be some additional gameplay modes added in just for the PlayStation Vita version. What are the modes? Capcom wasn't ready to spill the beans just quite yet. Enjoy the Vita screens in the gallery and see some Vita gameplay at the end of trailer above.
