Looks like we called it. Well, most of them at least. Capcom has just officially revealed 4 new characters for MVC3, 2 from Marvel and 2 from Capcom, but after looking at the trailer there%26rsquo;s definitely afifth character in there as well. As usual, Capcom has produced some gorgeous images for the characters, making them look uniquefor MVC3. Check them out:


Could it really be aCapcom fighting game without Chun-Li? The Venus to Ryu%26rsquo;s Mars, she%26rsquo;s the delicate flower of the Street Fighter series, the delicate flower with thighs like redwoods that is.She uses so many kicks that even her fireball is a Kik(oken). Har har.

Doctor Doom

One of Marvel%26rsquo;s sweetest supervillains, fan favorite Dr. Doom was a shoe-in to return. We can only hope Victor Von Doom retains his awesome floating recliner kick that he had in MVC2. Fun fact: Rapper MF Doom takes his persona from Dr. Doom and even wears an identical mask when performing.


A recurring character from the Devil May Cry series, Trish is an on-again off-again ally that%26rsquo;s sometimes helping Dante and sometimes getting in his way depending on the game. In the games where she%26rsquo;s playable she%26rsquo;s a bit more melee focused than Dante which might suggest she%26rsquo;ll be more of an in-your-face rushdown character in MVC3

Super Skrull

Super Skrull, or Kl%26rsquo;rt if you want to impress the ladies, is a Marvel supervillain from the Skrull Empire who has been infused with the powers of the Fantastic Four. As is the case with all Skrulls he%26rsquo;s got the ability to shape shift and hypnotize people, though his weakness stems from the fact that his Fantastic Four powers are transmitted to him via a beam broadcast from the Skrull home world, so all you have to do to beat him is hold him in your left hand.

Viewtiful Joe

Above: Just in case you're blind, he's the one on the left. No, your other left

While he hasn%26rsquo;t been officially announced yet, the outline in this newly released logo is clearly that of Mr. Henshin A-Go-Go himself, Viewtiful Joe. Anyone who bothered to play Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom has a good idea of what Joe will likely play like, so get ready for a tiny character who%26rsquo;s really fast and hard to hit but deals relatively low damage.
