The PS Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will largely be the same experience as its console-captivating big brother, save for the touch controls, however Capcom has snuck in a few little extras to whet the whistles of anyone who may be on the fence about purchasing a Marvel vs. game for the third time in one calendar year.

In addition to sporting Heroes and Heralds mode out of the box, Vita's UMvC3 variant also includes a spectator mode for watching online matches, as well as the ability to record and save match replays, a feature sorely missed from the console release. Players will also be able to import DLC from their PS3, as well as "trade content" with other Vita owners. Which content specifically is tradable, however, is still up in the air. Let's just hope it isn't Pokemon-style character trading; we don't trust ourselves to not accidentally trade Sentinel for a second Hsien-ko.
