Latest TGS 2010 Highlights

Spider-Man, Wesker spin onto Marvel vs. Capcom 3

TGS 2010: Comic-book webslinger and Resident Evil antagonist confirmed for cross-universe fighting title, taking roster to 22.

TOKYO--Capcom started off Tokyo Game Show this week by officially revealing two new characters to the ever-increasing Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds roster. From the Capcom side, Mega Man series staple Tron Bonne joined the fracas, while Marvel added Wolverine clone X-23 to the mix. But it seems the game publisher had even more announcements up its sleeve, revealing another two characters at a stage show held at Capcom's TGS booth this afternoon.

Marvel vs. Capcom series regular Spider-Man will make a return, and old webhead will sport his classic red and blue costume. From the gameplay clips Capcom presented during its stage presentation, it seems Spidey will retain many of his moves from previous MVC games, but also looks to sport some new web zip-line manoeuvres that help him quickly get behind opponents. His maximum spider super also gets a visual revamp--Spidey will now zip back and forth from walls, leaving webbing behind him that will encase his opponent, and finishes it up with a powerful foot stomp from above.

Resident Evil antagonist and leather aficionado Albert Wesker was also unveiled and will sport his classic dark coat, dark clothes, and dark sunglasses combo. From the gameplay clip shown, it looks like one of Wesker's key abilities will be a handy teleport that quickly switches his position around onscreen. Three supers were also shown--the first was essentially a counter move that allowed him to drop an opponent mid-super (in this case, Captain America), while the second was a series of fast hits that saw Wesker bounce from wall to wall (a la Spider-Man). The third had Wesker striking his opponent multiple times, before jumping over his head, producing a missile out of nowhere, and dropping it on his opponent.

Producer Ryota Niitsuma was on hand to introduce the new characters, as well as to confirm that the game will ship in spring 2011--as was promised in yesterday's financial report from the publisher. Stay tuned to GameSpot for more Marvel vs. Capcom 3 updates.

    Wesker strikes me as the kind of guy who'd whip out a gun or rifle or bomb in the middle of a fight. if not, then I worry he won't be all that unique a fighter. Dynasty Warriors has a huge roster of characters too, but you can't say they're all unique.

    I think we all knew that Spider-man was going to be in this game. No surprise there.

    I see I need to clarify to people the definition of BS characters. Honestly and truthfully, I was Pissed when I saw a dog in here, I even said to myself "who is making this game, Michael Vick when he played for the Falcons?" And i Never used tron bonne. A better bad guy from Mega man Might have actually been Wiley(mightve) or IMO BASS(rival not bad guy I Know). Let's address this Phoenix wright BS though. Firstly, No person who argues for PW can WITH A STRAIGHT FACE name a potential moveset outside of OBJECTION. PW might have good individual games but why expose him to the fighting game world where a whole genre of PURCHASERS will see him lacking moves and getting pummeled by the like of SpiderMan, Wolverine, Hell even a kid on a kiddie tank and a dog. PW fan base is geared from his genre NOT FIGHTING GAMES. only thing people who want him in really want is a cheap laugh at the expense of making MVC 3 look like a freak show.
    Whew, NOW with that said , I'm gonna need to see Ms Marvel, Venom or Carnage( I dont need both to be sated), M. bison (frpm SSf4 not MVC2), I'm not gonna touch the DARKSTALKERS CHARACTERS who belong here such a Demitri, or L. Rapter and finally Gambit and MAGNETO(toned down of course but nonetheless there). That is all
