Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will debut at Comic Con in San Diego next weekend, according to insider sources.

An anonymous tipster for comic site The Quarter Bin claims that the title is an expanded version of this year's crossover brawler. There will be 12 new characters included, bringing the roster up to a total of 50 fighters.

The source doesn't reveal who those might be, but given that Frank West and Doctor Octopus files were spotted on the original disc, they seem likely inclusions.

The title will apparently be a similar release to Super Street Fighter IV, suggesting you can expect a budget price tag.

As spotted by Siliconera earlier this week, the listing for Capcom's Comic Con presentation in the show schedule adds further fuel to the fire.

"Fighting fans! Come to this panel to hear the fantastic news about this legendary fighting game franchise straight from producer Ryota Niitsuma," it reads.

The panel kicks off at 7.00pm UK time on Saturday 23rd June for those who wish to mark their diaries.

We've put in a request with Capcom for further comment and will update if it offers any clarification.
