We all have tough lives. School, jobs and relationships are all things that have to be juggled in our day-to-day. But how many of you have to balance your responsibilities as mayor with hitting the gym, all while hatching a plan to thwart the plans of your daughter’s kidnappers? Exactly.
We’re all going to find out just how much rage that lifestyle would result in now that Final Fight‘s Mike Haggar seems to have been revealed as the next fighter in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
Long time fighting favorite of Capcom fans and the star of the Final Fight series among numerous other fighting titles, Mike Haggar was revealed in what may or may not have been a planned move on Capcom’s part. Pictures of the company Halloween Party were posted online at Capcom-Unity, with various shots of employees working and partying around the office. One such employee just happened to be working at their desk when the photo was snapped…
While no official announcement has been made, fans of Capcom’s most infamous brawler will immediately recognize the character on screen as Mike Haggar. Big, bulky, with a single suspender has been the accepted depiction of Haggar for 20 years, so there’s no mistaking his identity. The question may lay in whether the image is from MvC 3 or some other Capcom project we have yet to hear about. We’ll take the odds and assume that this means Haggar will soon be announced as a fighter for the Capcom side in Fate of Two Worlds, bringing some much needed brutality to a game that seems to have more than its fair share of flash and glamor.
Haggar now joins the Marvel Vs. Capcom 3’s large cast of already-announced fighters and is another example emphasizing that characters both old and new are being gathered for what Capcom believes will be the game that puts Street Fighter IV down for the count. MvC3 really is shaping up to be a gold standard in fighting games, and the addition of a classic brawler from many a gamer’s childhood memories is a welcome one.
The looks we’ve had at gameplay already show off a complex and varied fighting style, with it still being difficult to tell who the remaining fighters will turn out to be from the released Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 roster silhouette. Here’s hoping that the next fighter revealed will be coming from the Marvel side, but it may be too unlikely to hope for Beta Ray Bill. We can hope, though.
We still await an official announcement of Haggar’s inclusion, but whether he finds time away from the fast-paced world of boat repair to step into the ring, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 will be coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 in the spring of 2011.
