New Marvel VS Capcom 3 characters were announced at the 2010 New York Comic-Con, and they will definitely make Capcom fans happy.
First up is the hero of the Bionic Commando series, Nathan “Rad” Spencer, who will be making his debut appearance in a VS fighting game. This is a bit of a surprise, considering that the reboot of Bionic Commando didn’t exactly do gang busters. Naturally, Nathan will be able to use his extendable Bionic Arm for his attacks.
Arthur from Ghosts N’ Goblins, a classic Capcom character, will also be appearing in the game as a playable character. And, naturally, he will appear in his underwear at certain points.
And since there are two Capcom characters, inevitably we will learn of the two additional Marvel characters as well. Which should be revealed later on during the show.
Here is Arthur in action!
And here is Nathan in action!
Update: The two new Marvel characters look to be . . . Magneto and MODOK!
Additionally, Spider-Man will be getting four costumes that all aesthetically look completely different. Including the Iron Spider Suit, Black Symbiote Suit and the neon green Spider-Man costume from Dan Slott’s “Big Time” comics. Sadly they didn’t tie them into Spider-Man: Shattered Soldier, which would’ve been cool too. And it’s unknown if this different suits have any different moves attached. So sorry, no mechanical Spider Arms. 🙁
