As is Capcom tradition, new characters for their fighting games are revealed through an agonizingly slow trickle process. We get that it%26rsquo;s a surefire way to build hype for games that can be a year (or more) away from release, but when you%26rsquo;re waiting for a sequel to a game released a friggin%26rsquo; decade ago, %26ldquo;aintsy%26rdquo; is just one of the words to describe it.
Above: Do you see Mr. Fantastic in there?
So we guess it%26rsquo;s natural for those impatient fans to take it upon themselves and %26ldquo;leak%26rdquo; their own dream character rosters onto the internet. Take this one found on French gaming sitePS3Gen(translated by comics websiteNewsarama):
Spider-Man, Hulk, Wolverine, Mr. Fantastic, Captain America, Iron Man, War Machine, Elektra, Thor, X-23, Magneto, Dr. Doom, Shuma-Gorath, Emma Frost, Deadpool, Super Skrull, Taskmaster, Juggernaut, She Hulk
Ryu, Mike Haggar, Frank West, Chuck, Spencer (Bionic Commando), Dante, Chris Redfield, Morrigan, Arthur, Amaterasu, Albert Wesker, Zero, Chun-Li, Viewtiful Joe, Trish, Tron Bonne, Hsien-Ko, Akuma, Felicia
Yes, you probably also think that this is bogus based your own %26ldquo;insert charater x, PLZZZ!%26rdquo; reaction, but sharp-eyed commenters at Newsarama quickly pointed out that at the San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, it was revealed that Capcom was to avoid using the main cast of the Fantastic 4 at Marvel%26rsquo;s request, making Mr. Fantastic%26rsquo;s appearance on the list a little suspect.
While there certainly have been legit character rosters for fighting games that have leaked prior to their release, and we%26rsquo;re fine with eating our words if this one turns out to be true, this list looks a little, um, sketchy.
Get it? Comics! Sketchy! Comedy gold!
