New Marvel vs. Capcom 3 trailer + roster rumors

Posted by: Jeremy at 12/16/2010 1:08 PM
Capcom has released another entry in the ongoing saga that is the trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The rendered trailer, which first debuted at Captivate earlier this year, keeps getting additional footage added to it every couple of months. The latest footage shows that Magneto has interest in a little something known as the T-virus. I am still hoping that all of this footage gets chained together into one giant clip before it is all said and done, possibly as the intro movie to the game.You can check it out below.

In other MvC3 news, the final roster is rumored to have been leaked by someone “close to the project” on Twitter. An account by the name of klennox22, which has since been deleted, revealed some intimate details regarding the project and the characters yet to be unveiled for the final version of the game. According to the leak, the final roster will stack up as follows:

Capcom side
  • Akuma
  • Albert Wesker
  • Amaterasu
  • Arthur
  • Chris Redfield
  • Chun-Li
  • Crimson Viper
  • Dante
  • Felicia
  • Hsien-Ko
  • Jill Valentine (DLC)
  • Mike Haggar
  • Morrigan Aensland
  • Nathan Spencer
  • Ryu
  • Trish
  • Tronne Bonne
  • Viewtiful Joe
  • Zero 
Marvel side
  • Captain America
  • Deadpool
  • Dr. Doom
  • Dormammu

  • Shuma Gorath (DLC)
  • Spider-Man

That is 36 playable shipping with the game and 2 announced DLC characters... not a bad number. The leak claims that the next character reveal will happen this coming weekend at the Jump Fiesta event in Japan. I guess that means that we only have a few more days left to see if their is any substance to his / her claims...
