As many Marvel vs. Capcom fans know, there is a slight difference in roster size from Marvel vs. Capcom 2 to Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. The second series installment came loaded with a massive roster of 56 playable characters, while Marvel vs Capcom 3 tops off at a character count of 38 (including the two downloadable MvC3 characters).
For those bad at math, that’s an 18 count difference in characters. While this may be due to the fact that the previous two titles in the series consisted of 2D character sprites instead of 3D rendered models, this still comes as a disappointment to many fans. We here at Game Rant have decided to list a few characters that we believe would be cool additions to Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
We’ve selected 10 characters, five from Marvel and five from Capcom, who we feel are missing in the game. Perhaps they’ll be available down the line as overpriced DLC. Take a look:
We know that the game already has Zero to represent the franshise, but damn, the series itself is named after this guy. Besides Street Fighter, the second face that comes to mind when thinking of key Capcom characters is Megaman. He was good enough to make to the first two games, why not the third? Capcom believes he offers nothing unique. We disagree.
Blanka (Street Fighter)
Anyone who has played any of the Street Fighter games will remember how annoying it was to face Blanka, especially when he electrifies his whole body, forcing you to learn some technique or just how to launch a fireball. We think it would be cool if that same playable annoyance appeared in MvC3.
Vergil (Devil May Cry)
The more calm, collected (and more sadistic) older brother of Dante, who despises humans. Vergil’s fighting style is more strict and refined than his Devil May Cry counterpart. On the bright side, he is less “smart assy” than his younger brother. If you haven’t guessed it yet, he is everything that Dante isn’t and would make for a great addition to Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
The characters in the Monster Hunter franchise hunt and kill monsters, turning their flesh and bones into armor and weapons, just so that they can repeat the process. I’m pretty sure that any of the Monster Hunter warriors will be able to handle themselves against the other combatants in MvC3.
Chucke Green (Dead Rising 2)
Others may prefer Frank West but Mr. Greene is a Motocross Champion and a handy man of death. His MacGyver-esque skills are how he combats the zombie invasion and that makes him a little more worthy than West (a photographer) at earning a spot in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster. Any man that can take on a horde of zombies by himself and survive, should be able to join any fighting arena that he wants to. Do you not see the double chainsaw paddle in his hand?
