Are These The Remaining New Fighters In Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3?

Fans combing over Capcom’s website following the announcement of Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 have unearthed eight new character images that could very well be the rest of the update’s new lineup. Frank West? Iron Fist? Rocket Raccoon!? Yes, please.

This morning Capcom outed Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, debuting four of the 12 new characters coming in the November retail release: Ghost Rider, Strider, Hawkeye and Firebrand.

Now a reader named Joey directs us to a series of character portraits located on Capcom’s servers depicting popular Marvel and Capcom characters in the same style as those previously announced. Capcom fan favourites like Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney, Dead Rising‘s Frank West, and Resident Evil‘s Nemesis mingling with Marvel’s Iron Fist and Dr. Strange.

Are they legit? We’ve reached out to Capcom for comment. I can say I’d be completely satisfied with this lineup, and if there can’t be Squirrel Girl, Rocket Raccoon is a suitable replacement.




  • Can they PLEASE release this as a DLC update pack, like SSFIV Arcade edition? I’m not buying another freaking disc, I payed $100 for the last one…

  • >:(

    Okay but where is juggernaut and sabretooth? I heard rumours of elektra ages ago and that was exciting but seems unlikely now.

    Phoenix and frank ftw though 🙂

  • Capcom are lucky they put in Phoenix Wright as I will now get this game.

    However, I gotta say, people asking for this to be DLC. Remember how Capcom charge AUS$7.50 for each character? well times that by 12 and you get AUS$90. Seeing as this is a budget title it’s RRP will probably be like $74.95 and most likely stores like JB will sell of for $69 or so. In the end it will be a tad cheaper.

    That said I kinda wish they would stop with the re-releases.

    • When they released SSF4AE, you could update the SSF4 disc to AE with a $20 DLC pack, rather than buy the new retail disc.

      All I want is the same courtesy shown to those who already baught MvC3

  • Hmm something doesn’t feel right…

    Oh that’s right, no Females!

    Would they actually release 12 new characters with no females? hmmm….

  • What? After I paid $70 for the original, and then another $15 to unlock two DLC characters that were already on the disk?

    Good luck with that.

  • Capcom are really pushing their luck with this. If there is a cheaper DLC upgrade option for those who already have the game then fair enough, but I will be thinking long and hard before forking over my earth dollars for *another* retail release.

  • I only care about Phoenix Wright, but not enough to pay $100 for him. I hope they release him as standalone DLC but I’m not holding my breath.
