As reported earlier by us that Capcom won’t be releasing demo for Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, but at that time Capcom didn’t give out any specific reason for it.
Recently on the official Capcom-Unity forums Christian Sevensson had a word or two on the reason behind not releasing the demo for the game.
Here is what reasons Christian Svensson gave:
The very first reason was schedule, Sevensson said “If you wanted a demo, you’d have had fewer characters, less polish or some other tradeoff in the full game because the game absolutely had to ship within this fiscal year (business reality).”
“Demos take time to make, test and submit and they aren’t cheap which would mean something else would have to be cut or reduced to have time in the schedule and budget to do it,” he further added.
“Secondly, historically our retail fighting game releases have not had demos and we don’t believe that has hurt sales or long term consumer feedback if the experience is good (and in MvC3, it is great).”
“Lastly, we have made the game available to play at literally dozens of events around the world, so sampling opportunities have existed,” said Svennson.
“It doesn’t mean everyone who would want to try it has had the opportunity, but I would venture a guess that literally hundreds of thousands have since we announced the title back in April.”
