Possible Leaked Characters (Strider and Frank West)

if this is legit, Capcom got my money. Both Strider and Frank West sounds like great additions to the game even though they should have been in from the start. 
 
I just hope they earn money by doing this so they can keep supporting the game.

I thought Capcom explicitly stated that Frank West was not coming to Marvel Vs. Capcom 3?

Probably true and probably happening.

They pulled the same shit with SSFIV and Ibuki's kunai in a dodgy cameraphone shot last year-ish. It's all completely staged. I welcome Phoenix Wright, regardless.

Yeah apparently Frank West was messing up the game's performance somehow? Guess they got him to work. 
 
The lack of Strider was pretty much the only thing holding me from buying it. That and money I guess.  Now if I could just get Hiyato in there...

I don't think so.  They said they were working on him but it didn't work out.

I bet it's fake.

Looks like the fixed Frank's face going by his portrait. Nico Bellic Frank was awful in TVC.

Nice. Now where's Mega Man?!
 
Also, who are they going to get to balance them on the Marvel side of things, I wonder?

I want Pheonix Wright.

There is never going to be a megaman.
 
I bet this is fake because I have a feeling they are always going to do one Marvel and one Capcom.

@GlenTennis: What if they do a Marvel character pack and a Capcom character pack?

I know that it's fanciful wishing on my part, but a man can dream, can't he? Oh well, Zero is close enough anyway, I suppose he'll continue to do.

I'm with you on this one. Even if it is true, I don't think they would announce 2 Capcom characters without 2 Marvel characters. The roster would be unbalanced. "
That doesn't mean they can't leak it.

@PrimeSynergy:  but who knows how far along these characters are. Strider may be barely functional and West done, so then west would be pared with a new marvel character.

Looks hella fake, if you ask me.

Altho the HUD life bar portraits look completely new, that image of Strider Hiryu on the field is just his Namco X Capcom artwork
 

They just rotated the knee to face left in Photoshop

  
Still, brand new 3D models for Frank and Hiryu's faces makes me wonder.  If this is true, I'd love to see what two Marvel characters come in.  Probably Doc Ock and Elektra if the rumours are anything to go by, and frankly, all four of them would kick ass.

Wow, the two characters I REALLY didn't want...

Pretty obviously fake.

@FUN: This can't be true, look at Frank West's head it looks sloppy as fuck

Indeed.

its fake besides capcom has some copyright issues with strider

#27 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2690 posts) -

Fake, but it wouldn't surprise me if hes going to be a DLC character.

This is why I gave up on MvC3 and it's community. People just want MvC2 and what I hear from CAPCOM Unity that Mega Man and Venom might be DLC as well.

Let us also not forget that after the game released, it was found that unfinished data for both Frank West and Doc Ock was found on the disk. It is quite possible that these two, along with Strider and an additional Marvel character (Let's go Gambit!), could be the next batch of DLC.
