Though Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3’s roster additions were leaked
as soon as the game was announced, it’s still cool to see the new characters in
action, especially when it’s the star of a puzzle-based, lawyer game. Since we
first found out Phoenix Wright was in UMVC3, we excitedly speculated just how a
character known for talking and presenting evidence could beat up the Hulk.
With today’s first videos of Ace Attorney gameplay (plus footage of Marvel’s
top space knight, Nova), the mystery is revealed. TAKE THAT!
Of course that vid gives you just a taste. Here’s the
extended footage of Phoenix Wright kicking ass for the law.
It’s a great bonus to see cameos from Ace Attorney regulars
like Maya and the Judge, and we love that the devs threw logic out the window
by having the action of Wright rustling papers or pointing at someone hit just
as hard as any Hadouken.
By comparison, seeing the reveal of Marvel Comic’s Nova
might not be as exciting, but hear us out. Nova has been underestimated for
years, but in the last half decade he’s become one of the most cosmic-level
heroes, going toe-to-toe with Super Skrulls, Thanos and the Silver Surfer. Don’t
dismiss the Human Rocket as a Green Lantern rip-off, just watch as he decimates
foes with gravimetric blast straight from the Nova Force.
