SDCC 2010: Six New Characters Revealed for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

It looks like that "leaked" Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character roster from E3 is starting to gain some credibility, as Capcom released a new trailer this week confirming four new characters: Dr. Doom, Super Skrull, Chun-Li, and Trish. Check out this footage of all four fighters in action!

In true tag-team fashion, members of the gaming forum NeoGAF have uncovered a batch of screenshots from confirming two more characters: Amaterasu from Okami, and the mighty Thor!



















As with Captain America and Iron Man before, it looks like Dr. Doom is keeping a majority of his moves from Marvel vs. Capcom 2. It could just be the pacing of the game, but it also looks like the good doctor has had some speed upgrades.

I think Super Skrull is a brilliant addition, allowing players to experience the awesomness of the Fantastic Four's powers without taking up four character slots. His Ultra Combos all seem to derive from Johnny Storm, but keep an eye out during his combos as he busts out the Thing hands and the Mr. Fantastic slam. Where's the Invisible Woman action?

Trish looks interesting, a sort of speedier version of her franchise counterpart, Dante, with a little of Darkstalker's Morrigan thrown into the mix.

Chun-Li: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

No word yet if any more characters are set to be revealed at SDCC, but with the game not dropping until early 2011 I expect a slow trickle of character confirmations for some time. I'm still holding out hope for Dr. Strange and Mike Haggar…


  1. Seriously, this game is going to be flippin’ ridiculously awesome.  I can’t wait for it.  I loved, loved, loved MvC2 on my Dreamcast.

  2. Super Skrull looks AWESOME!!!

  3. poor Hulk . . . 

  4. K’LRT!!!!

  5. I’m getting old; that YouTube clip has given me a migraine.

  6. I feel like I’m 10 years old again and wasting my money at the arcades.

    Love it how everyone seems to have the same super combos as before, just graphically better looking.

  7. Where’s the Invisible Woman action, indeed?

  8. I just want Luke Cage in this game. That’s all I’m asking for. Please someone, anyone, make it happen.

  9. i just looked at one of the related videos with deadpool. AWSOME!!!!!!

  11. Oh hells yes to Amaterasu! Okami is one of my favorite games of all time, and I’m super bummed I was never able to finish it since my copy was damaged. I man I thought Thor was going to be my favorite character, but it looks like I’m going to be whooping ass like a rabid wolf with a mystical paintbrush.
