No, you should definitely get this one because that "super turbo arcade edition" will most likely not happen.
The only reason they made this one is because they planned on releasing DLC for MvC3, but couldn't because of the tsunami and earthquake in Japan.

I bought it, I think its worth it. The new roster changes the play of the game, I was at first Iffy but after a few rounds I fell madly in love with racoon rocket, nemisis and nova. I yet have clocked enough exp to give a full review. I enjoy it immensely.

This one is a definite "get", if you are a Comic-Superhero-type collector, 2-D fighting game lover (which, I like far better than 3-Ds, such as Soul Caliber <which was a great game, but just not as fun>), or anyoone who wants some fast paced action.
This version is more difficult in some ways, and it did take me a day to like it way better than MvC3:FoTW.
I used the following post I copied and pasted (it is my own work though, so I'm not stealing anyone's thunder.) But this explains a lot about the differences. (It would be the third time now that I answered a question with this.
CTRL-V coming up:
The new characters are very cool, on that merit alone it is worth it.
The DLC from the previous (sans Shadow Battles) carry over and with a bonus for Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath. There are way more costumes (6) available for all of the other characters.
There are new challenges that you can get titles for.
Galactus mode is pretty cool, (hold L1, Select, and push X while the "cursor" or "selection" is on "Arcade")
That is unlocked from the beginning if you had a save file from the original, or after you earn 30,000PP
They tuned the characters in a dramatic way. It is done more realistically than in Original. There is a profile section unlocked already (mine was, anyway) and it shows you the stats of each character, there is model mode, and color change right from that menu.
The Stats in the Bio are actually (I'm pretty sure, being a comic collector for 21 years now) based off of Marvel's own Power Level System; the thing is, though, that the stats REALLY matter and make a huge difference. If someone has low stamina and they are again, let's say Hulk, they low stamina character will go down quick.
The power levels on the original, for me, were tuned too balanced. This one is more realistic (well, in a fantasy world "realistic", anyway) and when they tuned the stats some characters are really $crewed over. They tuned this one to be less balanced, which I think is good, poor Phoenix Wright, he's basically the "Dan" (Street Fighter Reference) of UMvC3.
It is way more challenging in that aspect, as if you choose the characters you loved your whole comic and/or gaming life and they are not really that strong compared to the others in UMvC3 (Arthur Vs. Iron Man, for instance, pretty much means you have to play harder if you want to be Arhur; that was just an expample.)
None of the characters are invincible, though, any character can win against another, it is just more (or less, depending on your choices) difficult to beat.
Another thing I like is that you have to do actual button/stick moves (Hyper Moves/Combos) to actually pull off a "Team Combo" or a "Hyper Combo" instead of just pressing two of the buttons on the top of the control.
This version is much more than just an update/upgrade, it really should be MvC4 (But it they did that I WOULD want many more features, even with how sweet this game is)
So MvC3:FoTW, I give a 4.0/5 and UMvC3 I give a 4.5/5; the only reason it is not a 5/5 is because the story mode is still pretty lame. Just beat it with Captain America, you'll see what I mean.
