Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 glitch opens the door to a series of exploits

A recently outed glitch in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 centering around X-Men member Nova opens the door to a wave of additional game exploits, according to a series of YouTube videos posted by industrious players.

To trigger the glitch, players must use Nova to deploy his special Human Rocket attack as a Delayed Hyper Combo, an attack that deals high damage. This will cause Nova to disappear, making him invulnerable, and players will have to restart the match or wait for the timer to run out in order to continue the game.

YouTube user EndlessComboz has discovered that this glitch causes a domino effect of other problems, including camera glitches, hovering characters, and an exploit that allows players to infinitely combo a character without killing them.

Polygon has reached out to these YouTube posters as well as Capcom for clarification on what platforms the glitch is present on. We will update this story with more information as we have it.
