With the recent announcements of Amaterasu and Thor at Comic-Con, my excitement for Marvel VS Capcom 3 has skyrocketed. I never expected Ammy to make it into the game, but now that she did, it's practically sold the game for me (along with the announcements of Chris Redfield and Deadpool when the first trailer was released). Of course, it's going to be hard to not see the staggering 56(I might be wrong) characters (!) we saw in Marvel VS Capcom 2, but just over 30 (I think we can safely bet on 32 or 34) could mean that we might see a balanced roster.
At least, it'll be balanced until Omega Red is announced (don't announce him!). Everyone who's played online in MvC2 knows what I'm talking about. Spammers.
I’m also extremely excited about the fact that they’re streamlining the game a bit more. I got into the franchise when I bought Marvel VS Capcom 2 on Xbox Live Arcade, but the steep learning curve still has me stumped (I’m not that good). With the lack of a tutorial mode, it’s been hard to get into. I’m trying, and I can beat the game on hard mode now.
So, of course, I’m going to have a wishlist just like everybody else who cares about this game. Most of my Capcom favorites have been announced (Dante, thank you for coming to the fight!). But I still have a few people to add. Most of my wishlist consists of Marvel characters, so forgive me if you’re overwhelmed by them.
He’s been around since the original and is Capcom’s flagship character. He wasn’t fantastic in Marvel VS Capcom 2, but this all could be changed if Capcom just changed his roster up a bit.
Most RE fans have been crying for the appearance of Wesker and I couldn’t agree more. The man JUST DOESN’T DIE in the series; it would be great to see him in the game.
As long as he’s not a carbon copy of Megaman (I’m looking at you, WAR MACHINE!)
He was a silhouette in the teaser picture that was released when the game was first announced and is arguably Marvel’s most popular character. To leave him out of the game would be blasphemy.
As long as you balance out her moveset, Storm would be a wonderful addition to the MvC3 lineup.
His rising occurrences in the Iron Man movies and inevitable appearance in Thor makes Nick Fury a prime target for a seat in the roster of MvC3.
Another character fans have been screaming for, and if we see more X-Men with crazy powers it’ll be nice to see a martial arts based character. Plus, it’s Daredevil, he’s blind and he still kicks major ass.
Doc Ock has 8 arms. The only problem I could see with letting him in is giving him Omega Red’s moves (DON’T!).
Jean Grey/The Phoenix:
While asking for The Phoenix might be a little much, Jean Grey and her telekinetic powers would make for a very interesting character in MvC3.
That’s my wishlist! There’s a LOT of Marvel, I know. What do you guys think? Who do you want in the game, and who do you think shouldn’t be that’s on my list? Thanks for reading!
