We’ve seen some returning favorites, and new additions, since the game was first revealed last year, but Capcom has finally revealed the last two characters that will ship on the game’s disc. Hopefully you’re a fan of X-Men and Darkstalkers – because those are the two franchises that will be getting the last character spots in the already extensive roster.
The final two additions are none other than X-Men‘s infamous mutant-hunting robot, Sentinel, and Darkstalkers‘ very own female with gargantuan appendages, Hsien-Ko. The two characters fill up the remaining spots on Marvel vs. Capcom 3‘s roster, and while some may have been hoping for others to make the cut, there is no denying that these two fighters are bound to shake things up a bit. Trailers were also released showing off the new combatants in action. Fans of the franchise certainly won’t want to miss these.
The trailer showing off Sentinel’s armada of abilities can be located below:
Darkstalkers‘ femme fatale, Hsien-Ko, can be seen clocking fools with her massive hands just below.
Not too shabby, huh? These additions are certainly stellar for the series, but they come clouded by the fact that some fan-favorite characters that won’t be making the cut. Fighters such as Mega Man and Venom won’t be joining the brawl at this time around, which doesn’t make much sense considering they are two of the biggest faces for both Marvel and Capcom. Sure there’s always DLC, but very few of us want to dish out an extra $5 just to lace up our boots as Frank West or smack down some fools as Juggernaut.
Sentinel and Hsien-Ko finish off a rather robust roster, and even though it only fulfilled 3 out of our top 5 character wish list, it’s certainly livable.
How do you feel about the final roster additions? Who do you wish made the cut?
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds will be releasing on Xbox 360 and PS3 on February 15th.
