Oops indeed! Marvel and Capcom have a huge panel planned for the San Diego Comic-con regarding their upcoming crossover collaboration Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
. In addition to the new characters that were announced yesterday, it was expected that more could possibly be announced during the planned panel. Thanks to a leak from Marvel.com, we already know who is going to be revealed.
Last night, images surfaced from Marvel.com depicting Marvel’s Thor and Capcom’s Amaterasu (from Okami) as playable characters in the game. I think that Thor has pretty much been a “gimme” for the roster since Marvel has the movie coming next year, but Amaterasu is perhaps the biggest surprise yet. Okami’s protagonist is, after all, a wolf and not a traditional “human” fighter. It will be very interesting to see how she plays in the game.
The leaked screenshots and images are shown below, but they are all pretty small. Hopefully Capcom and Marvel will release some higher-res versions today since the information has already been spread. Also, don’t read too much into the silhouettes shown around the character art as I did. When I first saw them, I got excited and assumed we could deduct who was left on the roster; it turns out that these shadows represent all of the characters that have already been revealed. :(
