First blurry screen of Yun and Yang in Super Street Fighter IV and leak of C. Viper in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

While we were already 99% sure Yun and Yang we're coming to SSFIV, this blurry screen (Via Shoryuken) is the last 1%. It may not be much to look at, but it's the final nail in the coffin for all you R. Mika, Elena etc. fans. Eagle eyed fans have also picked out C. Viper in some silhouettes from MVC3's official site.

SSFIV Producer Yoshinori Ono has built a reputation for leaking little tidbits on his Twitter account, and his most recent pic from the SSFIV arcade testing clearly shows the two blank spots on the character select screen filled up with the two new characters. The left arcade cabinet shows a knocked down character in clothes that could only be Yun's, while the right cabinet shows an incredibly Yang like charater on the select screen. While the pic on the right is a little harder to make out, it's clear he's a Guy-styled character, and the only viable candidate for someone that looks like that is Yang.

EventHubs has also run a story breaking down some new silhouettes that were posted to MVC3's official site. A clever reader quickly identified one of the silhouettes as C. Viper, matching up her SF4 art perfectly. C. Viper should be a good fit for MVC3, as she's one of SFIV's most combo heavy characters.

While I'm fine with C. Viper in MVC3, I'm a little let down by Yun and Yang; interestingly enough we ranked Yun as one of Street Fighter's worst characters. While I don't necessarily agree with the rest of the list (Dudley? Eff you Wilde!), I've gotta agree that Yun and Yang have always sort of felt like Street Fighter's equivalent to Poochie the Rappin Dog: "We're two cool kung-fu bros with sweet baseball caps who shred around Shanghai when we're not kicking butt! EXTREME!". The upside is that the game is definitely getting new characters, which means if they sell well (no way will these be free), we can probablly expect more, less X-TREME characters.

    It's great that SSFIV is getting the twins. I'm not so sure about the C. Viper in MvC3 though. Nice character and all but she's in SFIV and SSFIV. I know, not many people care for the SF Ex series but there were some cool looking characters from that part of the franchise that definitely need some love. Poor Skullomania. I may never see a 'Day of the Dead' inspired stage for you.`_^

    Yeah, if true, all very disappointing. Yun and Yang are dull, never played them in SFIII.. And C.Viper taking up a valuable place in MvC3?? Please noooo...

    And not a shit was given that day. At least that's how I feel.

    @TheGoods, how would they bring back Charlie if he's dead in SF cannon by the time of SSFIV?

    no skullomania? suck it up oufour! don't cry!
  • TheGoods - September 3, 2010 10:38 p.m.

    Charlie could've been brought back to the canon in a big way here make him like Guile but faster and easier to control, Gil could've been usefull in SSIV also Oro would've worked, I don't see how Yun and Yang are going to get people to shell out $2-4, Charlie, Gill or Oro definitely could. Assuming you have to pay when these guys become available.

    Aww man I was hoping the new characters would be D Eagle and The Blondie or the Black Guy from Street Fighter 2's opening. Also Crimson Viper in MvC 3 really? She hasn't quite earned her stripes for that. Not saying she can't eat at the grown ups table, but MvC could be the showcase for so many other cool Capcom characters.

    "It's the final nail in the coffin for all you R. Mika fans" Well, shit.

    Hey GDar, I've got a question/observation, maybe you can help. In the MvC3 videos we've seen now, it's mostly featured Spider-man's stage, and in the background you can notice a remarkably acrobatic photographer. He jumps literally 15 feet in the air to follow combatants, dive-rolls, and takes photos while standing with one knee bent and the other leg straight out, which is a classic Spider-man pose. If my suspicion is right and this photographer is actually Peter Parker, does that mean that amounts to his appearance in the game, and Spider-man won't be a controllable fighter? Recaptcha: klitcam colonensis. Wow. Just. WOW.

    Yep this kinda blows, We need Rolento because of the Final Fight connections already in the game and we need Alex because although he wasnt the best character, he was supposed to be the main man in SFIII

    So instead of interestign characters we get twins? fuck why?
