New MvC3 trailers show Viewtiful Joe and Doromamomu(sic) in action

Breaking news in the "Well duh" department: Capcom has released some new Marvel vs Capcom 3 gameplay trailers of the recently revealed Viewtiful Joe and Dormammu. Let's check them out shall we?

From the looks of Viewtiful Joe’s vid he seems like a near identical copy of his Tatsunoko vs Capcom version. He's a relatively small character, so like Ameratsu, his strange hitbox might make him a little more difficult to juggle. His quick attacks and launchers make it seem like he’ll be even faster and more combocentric than before. His trademark spike boomerang and bombs return and should be big parts of his arsenal; they'll help offset the miniscule reach of his tiny limbs. As before, Joe will need to punch or kick the bomb if he wants to move it around after it drops just like in his games.

Dormammu, a Dr. Strange villain, is one of MvC3’s all new characters. His video shows him using a lot of projectile options to hit opponents after knock down and for catching them after they’ve been knocked away. Most of the combos we see in the video seem to take place from a standing/crouching position, so Dormammu may not be as aerial minded as Viewtiful Joe. You have to admit his "Ghost Rider goes to a space wedding" look is pretty intimidating though.

It seems like Capcom is going to be stretching out these character reveals for as long as they can, so expect gameplay videos to accompany each character announcement. Judging from the quality of these trailers and the smooth gameplay, MVC3 definitely looks like it’s on schedule and should have no problems meeting its March release date.

    GamesRadar, I love you, but for the love of fuck, fix your video player or use an off site one. It's the only player I know of that if you pause, it never starts again, and if you scrub, it goes back to the start. Please, get the tech team to write some better action script code. Also, MvC3 looks awesome. Can't wait.

    I'm a little surprised at how much i can't wait for this game to come out.

    @juicenpancakes Yessir! I'll def be playing SSFIV and BFBC2. We might have to bounce around from console to console so if I'm not on a GamesRadar tag I'll be playing as "Pseudo Bread" on XBL.

    Oh, I'm not that big of a Marvel fan; I really thought it was Ghost Rider. He'd be good for aerial chain whip attacks though, if he were in.

    I swear this game looks more fantastic every time I see it, can't wait. -- Mr. Grimm, will you be playing any 360 tonight in the 24 hour marathon tonight? I hope so!

    Dormammu looks awesome, even though the fireball rain attack seems like it can be pretty cheap, covering the screen and all. Regardless, this game will rock.
