Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - C. Viper and Storm Roster Reveal

Who says the ladies are underrepresented in fighting games? New challengers Storm and C. Viper were revealed for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 today, endings a three and a half week lull in character announcements. The previous roster reveals included Jill and Shuma-Gorath via download only, and She-Hulk with Zero,  making four of the last six fighters female. Though the epitome of manliness is still waiting for his name to be called: Mike Haggar.

C. Viper is a relatively new addition to the Capcom brand, born  in Street Fighter IV, and will be the sole new Street Fighter included in MvC 3. She’ll join the already announced pair of Ryu and Chun Li.

Here’s C. Viper in action, said to share a similar moveset as to Captain Commando:

Storm, however, has a history in Marvel vs. games. She was a playable character in the original 1996 X-Men vs. Street Fighter, and though she was only an assist in the first Marvel vs. Capcom, she regained her roster spot in the sequel. Storm joins Wolverine, Deadpool, X-23, and Magneto in representing the X-Men, though fans continue to hope for an even larger presence (Cyclops).

Here’s Storm, commanding the elements and taking names:

Capcom producer Ryota Niitsuma said in a past interview that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was going to focus on introducing new characters, rather than focus on the heroes of past. With over 32 characters said to be included on the disc, and DLC characters arleady being announced, the roster should be more varied and exciting than ever before. New face like M.O.D.O.K. and Amaterasu do so much to bring a new audience, while changing up the way professionals compete. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may be the best fighter ever released.

Excited to see C. Viper and Storm make the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster, Ranters? Are you beginning to worry that your favorite might not make this list? Who’s left to add?

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is scheduled for releases February 11, 2010 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The special edition will cost $69.99 and include two limited exclusivity characters.

    Holy crap how many playable characters are they going to add before the launch! before we know it were going to be playing the likes of canceled comics from the 1950s!(after I typed that it didn’t seem like such a bad idea to make the not so known, playable) lol

    There’s tons of new characters left, in tatsunoko vs capcom a VS Mobile Armor from lost planet and frank west from dead rising where in it and both games have sequals from last year, a new VS and Chuck Greene would fit well, and that game also featured Batsu from rival Schools plus Kyosuke was in capcom vs snk 2 and he originated in rival schools so I say we need a rival school chartacter ans Soki from the Onimusha Series was in tatsunoko vs capcom, and even tho samanosuke akechi is modeled after an actor he can still be in a cross over game and that was proved in onimusha blade warriors, and as far as Marvel Sentry and Fing Fang Foom I would love to see the new model of fing fang foom used
