Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 gets upgrade for PS4, XBox One

My brother is a fighting game addict. One of the few he swears by to the point he kept his old system just to play it was Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Now he can finally play it on the current gen systems as Capcom is releasing the game for PS4 and Xbox One.

The Marvel vs Capcom series was one of the more popular franchises of the last console wars and the ability to pit Ryu, Chun-Li, Chris Redfield, Strider and Mega Man against heroes like Captain America, Wolverine and Spider-Man made it a major hit. Now the classic game gets a next gen makeover.
