Still more awesomeness coming to Marvel vs Capcom 3: Spider-Man and Wesker confirmed

Capcom’s keeping the hype train rolling steadily by revealing the cast lineup for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 bit by bit. While Tron and X-23 were shown not too long ago during the press-only days at Tokyo Game Show, Capcom unveiled two more roster additions on the two days the show was open to the Japanese gaming public. One of the additions is completely expected, the other is a bit surprising. Gamespot took videos of the character reveals, and they both look to be great additions to an already awesome-packed cast.

First off is Spider-Man, who looks to play very similarly to his incarnations in previous Versus series installments. Seeing as how Spidey is generally regarded as the “face” of Marvel Comics, his inclusion in the game isn’t much of a surprise, but it’s nice to see it confirmed anyway.

Meanwhile, in a somewhat more surprising addition, everybody’s favorite double-crossing, genetics-manipulating, shades-and-trenchcoat-wearing super-human, Albert Wesker from Resident Evil, is now on the roster. If the footage show above is anything to go by, he’s going to have some very cool supers, including a counter-attack that can be used to retaliate against other characters’ super skills. Another interesting note: he’s also the only character currently on the Capcom side that is the exact antithesis of “heroic.”

As cool as these confirmations are, every new nugget of information Capcom feeds us for this game just leaves us craving for more. We’re sure that we’ll be seeing several more reveals in the next few months, but until the next get of characters is shown, we’re still stuck here salivating like Pavlov’s dogs.

    Hm, so the Vanquish guy is gonna be in MVC3? ... Oh wait, that's just an ad...

    @Rubberducky please, just, no...your ignorance astounds me. anyhow I aren't that surprised with SpiderMan . it's like wondering if Ryu will be in a Street Fighter game, however the lack of lesser known Marvel characters like for example the Black Panther or Toxin. Plus Cyclops would be nice.

    Have to agree with AGENT JORRRG - Wesker is a bit OP :)
  • AGENTJORRRG - September 21, 2010 6:31 a.m.

    Wesker being in it is a bit unfair isnt it? Wesker DOES NOT die. EVER.
  • GoldenMe - September 21, 2010 6:31 a.m.

    And your video player contibues to be horrible. Still great trailers though.
  • bball42242442 - September 21, 2010 4:17 a.m.

    oh btw Carnage>Venom actually i'd even rather have Mysterio than Venom
  • bball42242442 - September 21, 2010 4:15 a.m.

    i really would like Ghost Rider or Daredevil but idt either will happen, oh wellz
  • RUSSO - September 21, 2010 3:49 a.m.

    It's so nice that Wesker passed from a normal human army man in Resident Evil 1, to a mutated superhuman in Resident Evil 5. Is just unbelievable.
  • Rubberducky - September 21, 2010 1:55 a.m.

    Thats no joke, Batmans the best, I don't care who owns him!
  • Cyberninja - September 21, 2010 1:40 a.m.

    ruberducky thats a joke right?
  • NightCrawler_358 - September 21, 2010 1:32 a.m.

    Spider-Man is in it! i knew it all along!! also i was hoping for Wesker, and Capcom delivered.
  • ventanger - September 21, 2010 1:27 a.m.

    Yeeeassss... now just need Venom
  • Rubberducky - September 21, 2010 1:24 a.m.

    I'm hoping they announce Batman, he's my favorite comic book character!
  • MrSuitMan - September 21, 2010 12:58 a.m.

    Damn! Spidey with that pose and walk in 3D looks weeeeeeeeeird.
  • Heyexclamationpoint - September 21, 2010 12:50 a.m.

    I'm holding out hope for a secret version of Spider-Man: douchey emo black suit Spider-Man from the third movie. Instead of walking he'll be strutting all over the screen, his super move would have him dancing to a jazzy soundtrack and then punch MJ in the... uhh, nevermind...

    I liked how some people thought Spidey wouldn't be in the game. Lol. Morons.
