Marvel vs Capcom 3 cannot be accurately summarized in words - it's a blisteringly paced, 3-on-3 fighting extravaganza that needs to be seen in motion to be fully appreciated. So rather than post another text-heavy account of how the new characters look and play, we headed down to Capcom and had expert street fighter Seth Killian give us the real dirt on X-23, Wesker, Tron Bonne and everyone's favorite (only?) wall-crawler, Spider-Man.
X-23 (NYX #3)
Above: Seth is particularly excited about X-23 - she's not just a girl Wolverine!
Tron Bonne (Mega Man Legends)
Above: Tron Bonne returns from MvC2 with new abilities and better all-around options than her prior appearance
Wesker (Resident Evil 5 version)
Above: Wesker has tons of tricks, notably a pesky teleporting move
Spider-Man (Amazing Fantasy #15)
Above: Spider-Man has been slightly altered to feel "more Spidey-ish," which includes a new web zipline move
Direct feed matches
Above: No talkin', just fightin'. Look at Dante rack up those combos!
Above: Another no-nonsense match with a little Wolverine vs X-23 action
MvC3 is still down for a 2011 release for PS3/360, which leaves plenty of time for even more character reveals. We got Amaterasu, so may we now plead and beg for Vanessa Schneider?
