Say hello to Marvel Vs. Capcom 3’s newest characters

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’s definitely a fifth character in there as well. As usual, Capcom has produced some gorgeous images for the characters, making them look unique for MVC3. Check them out:


Could it really be a Capcom fighting game without Chun-Li? The Venus to Ryu’s Mars, she’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’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’s sometimes helping Dante and sometimes getting in his way depending on the game. In the games where she’s playable she’s a bit more melee focused than Dante which might suggest she’ll be more of an in-your-face rushdown character in MVC3


Super Skrull

Super Skrull, or Kl’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’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’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’s really fast and hard to hit but deals relatively low damage.

    I owned People Online with Joe on Tatsunoko VS Capcom, Now its Time for Marvel VS Capcom 3! BOOYA! Now I need phoenix wright to finish my dream team!
  • Nobody - July 22, 2010 11:12 p.m.

    MF DOOM is spelled with all caps, just sayin'.
  • Clovin64 - July 22, 2010 9:59 p.m.

    I would have preffered DMC3's Lady to Trish personally. Or better yet, Virgil.
  • Ivan200X - July 22, 2010 1:45 p.m.

    It wouldn't be fair if professor X was in... considering all the mind control on your friends trying to compete against you.
  • JayBeat - July 22, 2010 12:53 p.m.

    "her fireball is a Kik(oken)." This is wording that I enjoyed.
  • Conman93 - July 21, 2010 11:52 p.m.

    @cyberninja You can't really. Some of the images are repeated such as deadpool I just want mr wright and ammy and this game will be mine day one!
  • AlpineGuy - July 21, 2010 11:21 p.m.

    I'm pleased to see Viewtiful Joe there. All I have left on my wishlist now is Spider-Man and Phoenix Wright. That said, having Trish in there doesn't make that much sense. She wasn't really that important a character in DMC, and Capcom has so many to choose from.
  • Psylockerules - July 21, 2010 10:11 p.m.

    trish is a plesent suprise and although it makes sense to have the super skrul (4 powers 1 character) i find him dull, chunli well not shocked at and dr.doom i loved playing as in MvsC2 so happy hes returning. i still want wesker, jill valentine, cammy, zack and wiki, dark phoenix, psylocke, beast and some emma frost bitch action please ;)
  • VaneTrago - July 21, 2010 9:59 p.m.

    Preferably Mega-Man X, and you know Magneto will of course be in here. OH and where's the Juggernaut? Speaking of characters who have become more popular since 2000... "Oh I'm the Juggernaut bitch! And I got a bitch with me!"
  • wackdogg - July 21, 2010 9:04 p.m.

    Henshin A-Go-Go, Baby!
  • MrSuitMan - July 21, 2010 8:33 p.m.

    Not TOO excited about Trish (since the DMC quota was already filled by Dante) but still think it's a welcome addition. Now just waiting on my Monster Hunter, Megaman (either classic or X, not fucking Volnutt, Battle Network, or Starforce) and a long shot Amaterasu.
  • GamesRadarMichaelGrimm - July 21, 2010 8:21 p.m.

    @Cyberninja Gave it a whack but it looks like its just a repeating pattern of the already announced characters
  • Cyberninja - July 21, 2010 8:05 p.m.

    can you figure out who everyone is from that ring in the backround
  • SouthTippBass - July 21, 2010 7:49 p.m.

    If I can be an ass for a moment. Seriously, this game looks fantastic, but Chun-Li's legs measure 19cm on my monitor (ankle to hip) While waist to top of head measures 7.5cm. Looks weird, out of proportion. Sexy weird, and sexy out of proportion. Doom looks awesome. :-D
  • gilligan2021 - July 21, 2010 7:18 p.m.

    Also I love that you mentioned MF Doom
  • gilligan2021 - July 21, 2010 7:14 p.m.

    In the strapline you wrote "Chin-Li" instead of "Chun-Li", and unless this is an alternate version of Chun-Li from the Crimson Chin comic series, I believe that it was a mistype. But yeah, super psyched fo' this shit
  • DarkTone - July 21, 2010 6:55 p.m.

    No need fo Trish. Even if Dante wasn't in it. Where the hell is Phoenix Wright?!
  • Ensoul - July 21, 2010 6:53 p.m.

    "...he outline in this newly released logo is clearly that of Mr. Henshin A-Go-Go himself, Viewtiful Joe." What if it's Blade Master Alastor? Huh? Ever consider that? Yeah, you haven't have you... Nah, you're probably right. It's Joe, the points are to pointy to be Alastor.
  • Ampatent - July 21, 2010 6:38 p.m.

    Trish? Hur, hur... boobs.
  • Amnesiac - July 21, 2010 6:37 p.m.

    I approve of all of these. This game is already looking great.
