Top Ten Most Wanted Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Characters

The announcement of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 from Capcom was quite possibly one of the greatest mass internet nerd-gasms of all time. Fighting fans have been screaming for this game for a decade. License issues barred any hope of it ever happening (and actually got the PS2 and Xbox ports pulled after a brief production run), and the presumed death of 2D fighting games basically made it a fanboy pipe dream forevermore. Well, not anymore. 2D fighters are back in a big way, and Marvel's popularity has skyrocketed since the beginning of the nearly ten year franchise moratorium. Think about it. The last MvC title was released all the way back before the first Toby McGuire Spider-Man movie. A lot has changed since the Dreamcast's swan song. Marvel is now owned by Disney. 8-bit Mega Man is cool again. Yet a few things stay the same, like the fact that Hulk movies still suck, and fans eternally obsessing about who is and who isn't going to make the cut for what will undoubtedly be the most bitched-about fighting game roaster of all time. Marvel and Capcom both share an absurd wealth of classic franchise faces. Will they rely on familiar brand staples and fan favorites, or take a few risks with new or generally unknown cult characters? V.S. series regular Chun-Li is obviously in (her silhouette is on the teaser art), and the much welcomed new comic relief Deadpool made his debut at E3. What else is in the cards is unknown (Gambit plz), but here's a list of ten essentials that Capcom needs to make happen. #10: Blade Dating back to 1973, Blade's character (based loosely on a composite of various black actors, most specifically Jim Brown) came to life in Marvel Comics' The Tomb of Dracula #10. You could count the reasons Blade deserves to be in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 all day. He has a background in street fighting. He's a master swordsman and lethal with throwing knives, so he can counter an assault from Strider. He is a trained marksman who can compete with Chris Redfield's heavy artillery. Most importantly of all, he's a freaking vampire hunter. Blade versus any number of Darkstalkers (Morrigan & Felicia, already having been confirmed) is something worth the price of admission alone. To paraphrase Darth Vader, "It's time to increase the level of black representation on the committee.". Let's get captain flat-top in the game Capcom. Read More

Phoenix Wright, Ingrid Likely to Join Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, But Only If...

The topic of characters from Capcom's Ace Attorney series of Nintendo DS (and now WiiWare) games has come up here and there throughout the development cycle of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, and it seems that the idea hasn't died yet. In fact, it seems more likely than ever now that it could happen. That is, provided certain conditions are met. Read More

Nintendo Reveals First- and Third-Party Holiday Lineup

Nintendo has released the planned publishing schedule as it stands for the Wii and Nintendo DS/DSi, from both themselves and their third-parties. A lot of definite dates are not set in, instead referenced as "Fall," "Holiday," or "November," for example, but nonetheless serves to give us an idea of what the coming months will bring. "This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household." Nintendo also mentions the upcoming black Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and MotionPlus as being available "this holiday season," though they don't get any more specific than that. Hit the jump for the full press release and list of games that will become available. Read More

New Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Arcade Fightsticks Revealed

Following in the footsteps of Street Fighter IV, Capcom and Mad Catz have teamed up to announce new Arcade Fightsticks for Marvel vs. Capcom 2. However, as you can see above, these don't feature different pairs of characters as previously thought, but rather, a large group of heroes squaring off. They will be released this Fall exclusively through U.S. GameStop stores (what? No Canadian EB Games?), Capcom's online store, and Mad Catz's online store. And though no price tag has been attached, they likely won't be cheap if the Street Fighter IV versions are any indication; those ran for $149.99 apiece. Check out the details in the press release after the cut. Read More
