‘Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3’ Adds 12 Playable Characters

Today it was announced that Capcom will release Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with 12 new playable characters. Six from Capcom and six from Marvel. This is a great game but with so much potential in terms of DLC, we have only gotten 2 downloadable characters. These 12 new players will reignite the flame for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, giving players a reason to go back and adjust their perfect team. A little later IGN reported a leak of all 12 characters:


  1. Firebrand
  2. Strider Hiryu
  3. Phoenix Wright
  4. Vergil
  5. Nemesis
  6. Frank West


  1. Hawkeye
  2. Ghost Rider
  3. Dr. Strange
  4. Iron Fist
  5. Rocket Raccoon
  6. Nova

Personally I was hoping the Marvel side would have a few better characters like Cyclops or Nightcrawler but this is certainly exciting for fans of the game. One thing that worries me is that the game doesn’t sound like it is coming on Xbox Live or Playstation Network. For the moment it seems we have to buy the game at a price of $40 which isn’t bad for people who don’t own the game, but what about people who already own it and just want the new characters? Hopefully more announcements are forthcoming about the specifics on Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. But for now check out the trailer featuring four of the new characters below!
