With Capcom announcing their new Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 title today, the Internet's aflutter with who the new characters could be. With 12 new fighters (six Marvel, six Capcom) being added to the ranks, there's a lot of potential for greatness, here.
Even though Capcom was looking to keep things relatively secret, the full roster of new characters got leaked anyway: we can expect Nova, Rocket Raccoon, Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider and Hawkeye will be entering the fray. Their character portraits have been leaked via a flaw in Capcom's web site, which you can take a look at below.
A couple of these characters are long-requested, as Iron Fist seems to be a natural fit for fighting games, and Doctor Strange's villains (Shuma-Gorath and Dormammu) have long been part of the franchise. None of these additions really surprise me in terms of fighting ability: I can definitely see some awesome combos already.
Here's the full list of additions, and a trailer! What do you guys think about the additions? Can you see any cool new team combos out of these new fighters?
- Frank West
- Phoenix Wright
- Ghost Rider
- Dr Strange
