Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Cheats

Things change, and time passes, but fighting games remain the most resolutely old-school of video game genres. There’s really just not much to change, not much to develop. The pixel counts increase, the move animations are more fluid, and the special abilities are more spectacular, but when it comes down to it, a gamer from 1995 could easily pick one up and figure out exactly what to do.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3, despite its many bona fides, falls squarely into this category. And one major way in which it will cling to the old-school is in the inclusion lots of codes and unlockable characters and content, which you will need either prowess or know-how to unlock. This page is a repository of know-how. Below, you’ll find cheats, codes, guides to unlockable characters, and lists of trophies and achievements.
