Capcom has seemingly went all out to make sure that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will give you a superior online experience to that of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. A list of improvements from the Capcom Unity Blog can be seen below:

#1 Spectator Mode added! Up to 6 players can watch battles while 2 battle.

#2 Before having a match, you can check out your opponent’s information and decide whether you would like to battle against him/her or not for Player Match and Ranked Match.

#3 In the last game, it was difficult to tell who had bad network manners, but in UMVC3 skull, silver, gold icons will be shown.

#4 Looked over the retry features for matching and made matching better than the last game.

#5 In the last game, if matching was unsuccessful, you were brought back to the top menu screen, but in this game, it will bring you back to the screen where you can search again.

#6 In the leaderboards, there’s a new button/feature which will take you to the rank at which you are positioned, and a cursor to make viewing easier.

All of these tweaks and additions should definitely make for a superior experience, and perhaps idiot quitters will eventually find that not a single person wants to play with them.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is due for release next month on PS3 and Xbox 360.
