We’ve got less than 20 days before the release of Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Capcom is still rolling out the new playable characters. Here comes the purplish pairing of Marvel’s Sentinel and Darkstalkers’ Hsien-Ko.

Hsein-Ko and her sister Lei-Lei used a forbidden Tensei-no-Jutsu technique to try and bring their mother back from the dead. Hsein-Ko wound up a purple Chinese vampire, and Lei-Lei ended up as a piece of paper on her hat. Sounds like someone got the raw end of that deal.

The two sisters join the succubus Morrigan and kitty girl Felicia representing the Darkstalkers series on Capcom’s side of the Marvel Vs Capcom 3 battle.

Marvel’s new entry is that iconic violent violet robot the Sentinel, Marvel’s premiere mutant-hunting machine. He’s already appeared in Marvel Vs Capcom 2, as well as the X-Men’s solo fighting game Children of the Atom.

Is that all now, Capcom?

Comments

  • Hsein-Ko isnt a vampire, Dimitri is the vampire of the Darkstalkers franchise.

    “Lei Lei is based on “Jiang Shi” which are reanimated corpses that hop around, killing living creatures to absorb life essence from their victims. They are said to be created when a person’s soul fails to leave the deceased’s body, due to improper death, suicide, or just wanting to cause trouble.”

    • Also, to add to the corrections, Hsien-Ko’s sister isn’t Lei-Lei. Lei-Lei is Hsien-Ko’s name in Japan. Her sister is Mei-Ling (English) or Lin-Lin (Japanese). Easy mistake to make. I just get defensive of my favourite Darkstalker. =D
