I have to admit I was a little bit confused when I saw Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 surface on Steam. I wasn't keeping close tabs on the series and as far as I was aware this game launched six years ago. And besides, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is just around the corner. It turns out that this particular version of MvC 3 didn't launch on PC all those years ago but Capcom has finally seen fit to give it to us now. In terms of fighting games this is right up there with the best of them, featuring an untouchable roster of superheroes and Street Fighter favourites.

An old game naturally means old requirements. Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 was designed to run on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There's no doubt about it, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a cinch to run by today's standards. The minimum requirements for UMvC3 is basically a decade-old PC.

If you want to ensure you can max Ultimate MvC 3 out at 1080p / 60 frames per second however then you probably need to be hitting the recommended specs. Any DirectX 11-capable graphics card should do the job, provided it's got at least 1GB of VRAM.

Nothing else should pose too much of a problem, everything about Ultimate Marvel versus Capcom 3's system requirements is geared towards the low-end. Marvel vs Capcom Infinite however is probably a totally different story.
