Earlier on, players were greeted with a patch update for Marvel vs Capcom 3 that fixes a few bugs and introduced a nice health nerf to Sentinel. Along with that patch, it included preparation data for Event Mode. Event Mode is now finally open for players to mess with today… But what is it exactly?After hearing about Event Mode, I was like “Oh man, I wonder what would be in it. Maybe like special battles under certain conditions like Smash Bros!” I was about half right and probably more disappointed because of it. After loading up the game today, you will be greeted by a message saying that you can now play Event Mode. Event Mode is found under the Online menu in Marvel vs Capcom 3. Event Mode is basically a list of challenges that have special conditions such as beating Arcade mode with your life continuously depleting or earning a certain amount of wins in a row online. So far, from the 17 events introduced, it all revolves around completing arcade mode under these conditions or beating a certain number of players online (which I believe can be done outside of ranked matches).
I found this to be a little disappointing but then again, what was there to expect? And honestly, does it really matter all that much in the end? It does add a bit of re-playability for those who enjoy beating up on the computer and those that play online. You also get titles for completing these tasks in Event Mode as well. If I had to make a comparison, it would be as if you’re playing Halo 3 with skulls active to handicap yourself. There are currently 17 events at the moment with an assumed 50 total by the end. I am not too sure if you need to do these events to unlock more since you have to do one arcade run per event that requires it but I think it might be safe to assume that based on how it was distributed, more events should become unlocked as time goes on and Capcom slowly releases them.
So, I think it is also safe to assume that people will be boosting each other up for these online events. Whew joy!
If you have yet to pick up Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds… Well, what the heck are you waiting for? It’s a great fighting game even for those that don’t play a lot of fighters and even more for those that do.
