I'm watching the footage from Treehouse yesterday, and I'm going to have a really hard time picking a main team. All of the characters they're showing look fantastic. The animations, colors, and designs are all just stellar. If they introduce an endless grindable mode I'll eventually level them all to the level cap.

Hnnghhhh I've waited so long for a great sequel, and it's almost here!

are we assuming characters like Colossus and Cyclops who are in the story mode are DLC or hidden characters?

Late game unlockables. Deadpool shows a character can appear without joining you right away. Cyclops and Colossus are heavy hitters so it makes sense that they don’t join your team until later so they can have a bigger impact in the overall plot before they join

So uh.. did the website just drop this bomb and it just flew over most of our heads? On the Heroes tab:



Meaning.. each character doesn't only have 4 abilities? There's more but you can only equip four of them? So.. like previous MUAs? Or is this generous wording?

EDIT: I just watched the IGN Live Twitch stream that Absent Breeze linked above... in that video, around 7:34:30 or so, they mention "I want skill #1, #4, #6..."

Holy shit. This game is apex Marvel.
I just watched it and yeah, this is a bombshell for me. I was already pretty excited but there was a nagging in the back of head about how only 4 moves may still feel just a little limited.

My only thought is maybe not everyone has the same amount of moves and that’s why they had been constantly saying 4 up till now? Otherwise I can’t think of why they wouldn’t mention this sooner!

I like Deadpool's X-Men costume with the apron and toque :v
... Toque?

I'm happy that the costume features additions to the model, and isn't just a palette swap/reskin. That'd work for most costumes for guys like Spidey or Wolverine, but I'd like other stuff you can't pull off with just a new skin, like Cyclops with/without his hair, Nightcrawler as a pirate, Starlord's old comic outfit, Blade's dumb goggle look, and all that.

Oh is this the dlc costume? Where did you find it?
It's from the Nintendo E3 press material:

Yes, like a cook's hat. Sorry if I used the wrong word :p I'm not sure if that's how you translate it to English.

Haha, no, I looked it up, and it's actually my bad. Apparently "toque" is in fact the formal name for a chef hat. In Canada (on the west coast, at least) it only seems to refer to knitted caps ("beanies" in the US).

I really hope Spider-Man has an alternate Fisherman/Archery costumes.

This game seems like the perfect marriage of UA1 and UA2, incorporating the great qualities of both. They've also done an excellent job with content and customization options. The news that there's more than 4 special moves available for each character broke me. I can already see myself attempting to max out every effing character in this game.

I really like that we have a Fantastic Four pack, glad they aren't being left out entirely.

Also really like that we get another X-Men pack, I wonder how many character we get, also hoping for some story content/cut scenes. Really want the Fantastic Four and the new X-Men to have some interactions with the rest of the cast.

Hoping for Rogue, Gambit, Iceman, and Cable.

Leaning towards hidden characters for me.

They'll probably show up as playable in the base game later in the story.
I'm hoping this is the case, but I could definitely see them being DLC. Especially now that we know there will be additional story elements in the DLC, I could see Cyclops and Colossus going off on a side/supporting mission and encountering other heroes there.

Kamala Khan looks so freaking amazing. Then you have Wolverine, nightcrawler, Starlord, just the whole cast looks great.

So Marc who was in the tree house yesterday syas that there is even more characters that be revealed before launch.

He’s the story writer for the game and the guy who did the majority of roster picks so his word is gospel
