Viewtiful Joe and Dormammu confirmed for Marvel vs Capcom 3

Hot out of Gamescom, Capcom just unveiled two new combatants headed to the MvC3 arena. Henshin a go-go, baby! It’s Viewtiful Joe, confirmed for landing! (Even though attentive fans probably already saw him teased in a previous trailer.) The oddball this time around is Dormammu, noted mystical nemesis of Doctor Strange. He’s a rather obscure choice when compared with the rest of Marvel’s roster thus far, especially once you consider that this brings the confirmed character count to eighteen, which not only fills out all of the promotional silhouettes we’ve been teased with, but also more than makes up half the of the 30 promised fighters.

Whatevs, there’s more than enough room for a wildcard. And Dormammu’s announcement makes that leaked character list we reported on even more suspect due to his omission, so there are probably plenty more surprises coming our way. Check out some of our favorite shots from today's batch of new screens below OR or see them all right here!

    @Ded yeah it's a bit weird no-one mentioned it ages ago, after all Dormammu WAS in the trailer, I even mention that he was in it ages ago, but no-one cared. Damn.... I think it's good they aren't using too well known characters, a good descision, meaning Capcom are doing more of a service to us comic fans. I WANT DEVIL DINOSAUR NOWWWW!!!!!!!!!!

    ha a cool choice of a character does this mean doc strange is in?
  • Ded - August 18, 2010 6:56 p.m.

    Uh.. you know Dormammu was shown in the intro trailer months ago? Seemed a bit obvious he was going to be in it...

    @saywhaat - You're a moron. Not only did you do the taboo of yelling 'first,' you didn't even actually say anything relating to the post, making it look suspect you're just trolling around to try and find topics that haven't been posted on yet. Douchebaggery. Both of these characters have been revealed before, now it's just official. If THIS counts as the 'Big Reveal' they were talking for this week, then someone should get kneecapped.

    ...dormammu is obscure? lmao ok? not really but alright I guess
  • lovinmyps3 - August 18, 2010 6:37 p.m.

    I can't wait for this game!!
  • Frosty - August 18, 2010 6:19 p.m.

    I dunno, Dormammu isn't thaaat obscure, he was featured fairly recently in a New Avengers arc. Personally I think it would have been neat to have had The Hood in the game (and possibly Dormammu through him), but that doesn't look too likely now. Oh well.
