Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3’s expanded roster is full of
wonderfully strange additions, and now one of the most confusing finally gets
showcased in these new trailers. Some might have thought adding Phoenix Wright was niche, but that’s nothing compared to Rocket Raccoon. Perhaps 99% of
readers haven’t heard of the space-faring animal-man, but those dissatisfied
should find solace in today’s other gameplay reveal for Frank West.
Dead Rising’s Frank looks pretty accurate in his trailer,
with zombie throws, wrestling moves, and baseball bats. It’s great that his
rest pose is always holding his camera and it seems he even does damage by
taking an opponent’s photo. Though we like his specials that included combo
weapons and chainsaws, our favorite has to be shoving a Servbot head on an
enemy and then helicopter spinning them. Now that Frank’s finally in the game,
he looks to be fitting in great.
If that trailer of Rocket Raccoon looking like a total
badass didn’t sell you on the character, we don’t know what will. A very minor
character until a few years ago, Rocket joined the Guardians of the Galaxy and
attempts to keep the cosmic peace. The outwardly cute alien is an expert in
most weapons, making him a dangerous (though loyal) operative. With his big
moves and short stature he could end up being a real challenge, and we hope the
rest of the gaming world comes to love him as much as we do.
