I know its a long shot, but i'd love to see Ryu from Breath of Fire in this, that would make me that much more excited for this game!
I still need to see ZERO or MEGAMAN X to be fully hooked... and some classics like Strider / Captain Commando...
im really liking the fact that capcom is pulling characters from every where, instead of just adding a SF characters in more and more. Nathan and Arthur are huge surprises for me its good to see them in this good. now if marvel could pull a random character, from any where like the Punisher or Dr strange. that would be great
To everyone wondering if his old outfit is in the game: it seems like they are only going with pallet swapping (so far at least) He does have an alternate coloration that seems to resemble the old version see image 42
@Everybody! Look I don't care if he's not the original design and even if so what? It doesn't change the fact that 1. He's in the game and 2. he's got some pretty sweet moves. Now right now I'm playing Bionic Commando Rearmed and I know what he looks like and really it doesn't matter to me. It was probably easier to use THE MOST RECENT DESIGN anyways! Also I do LOVE the "Get Over Here!" thing and I like his conversation with Tony. Also @Eagle007 like my friend below me started, Capcom ain't gonna care if you buy their game or not. You are one person against many loyal fans. And unfortunatly guys if you all are looking for characters like Ken, Akuma, and other characters with the same move set, you are out of luck! This game has been confirmed to not have any clone characters at all!
@Eagle007... I think Capcom doesnt give a sh*t if YOU wont buy the game.. Honestly. Nathan look alright... Has a "scorpion" feel when you hear him saying "get over here" hahaha
I respect you for enlightening me and you also took the words right out of my mouth both games are different in gameplay.But agian I say this game has had everyone waiting for a veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrryyyy long time so wouldnt you be pissed if these characters dont balance everything out and just suck ass?Seriousely look at viewtiful joe ultra combos,he has a big cannon in witch only shoots once and doesnt do a significant amount of damage,then theres the combo in which slows the enemy down......-_- seriousely slow?Ok you may like it but i know that if i dont start seeing some more cool and favored characters from succrssful games im gonna b pissed,or just characters in which go with the vibe of the game like think more old school comic book and less child cartoon.
@Eagle0007 I agree that the old model looked better but in all fairness he was a bit too much of a Duke Nukem look-a-like.You never know,there may be an alternate costume for the older model.
@angel62808 Smash Bros. is one of the fighting games that hosts most tournaments.It's fanbase is a mix of young and mature gamers and in true Nintendo style will offer something for all ages.If you think about it Marvel is very similar in that its cartoons are clearly aimed towards the younger market whilst the films are aimed at a more mature audience. MvC3 and Smash Bros. aren't that different in the respect that both are 2d fighters where the rosters are made entirely of characters from different games.That's largely why I made the comparison because Nintendo like Capcom had to similarly choose which characters are in and which are out.All the less obvious characters such as Rob and Ness work well in balancing Smash Bros. so there's no reason it won't work in this. No denying that in gameplay these games are very different.
@MEDzZ3RO:Ok your right but let me ask you this do you not see how different these games are?I personaly believe that MVC in general is a fighting game for the more mature gamers in other words older,although i like smash bros its a bit childish now how often do kids care who appears in thier games other than the main characters in those games?
@Eagle0007 there were people who actually liked that game(myself included). and as much as i would have liked to have the old spencer used, we're just gonna have to live with the new model. and odds are, there will probably be an alternate costume for him and many others.
I can't believe that everyone that has seen this is not up-in-arms about the fact that they are using the New "Rad" Spencer model from the Bionic Commando game that was utter rubbish. I think having Spencer in the game is a great choice but to not use the Classic red haired Spencer that truly is "RAD" is a smack in the face of anyone looking to buy Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This game is a celebration of the best characters and versions of characters that Marvel and Capcom have to offer. Listen up Capcom and listen good - Switch Spencer with the Classic Model immediately. You won't get my money making idiot decisions like this. Seriously, who at the design table at Capcom said, "Let's put Rad Spencer in there and let's use the model from the game that Bombed and nobody liked." Who sits at these design meetings and okays this crap. It's not like the community wasn't vocal about the hate for the newer model. Take a page from the Infamous 2 developers and keep the models consistant with what gamers want and expect. Other than this awful oversight - The game looks amazing! Right the Wrong Capcom.
@angel62808 I disagree,it adds depth and variety.I'm glad Bionic Commando,Okami and Viewtiful Joe are in,they have a wide variety of move sets.Ok so Mudok and the Knight are a bit random but then again the Ice Climbers and Ness work well in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.I see no reason they can't work in this.
@ZapperZrock: Im good, but not a god. Im just a technical fighter if a character gets boring on to the next character and has a strong variety of moves and combo kills. That's right Blanka players i don't cheese with blanka AT ALL! Read it and weep
Oh and to all the people complaining or worring about this or that character being put in the game, don't you know that is what the DLC they will surely have is for? I'm betting that if a missing character is being talked about enough by the public that it is at least on Capcom/Marvel's radar as a POSSIBLE DLC content add-on. Or, even better yet, a SUPER MVC version they can dangle extra characters over customers heads.:P (Yeah, I was a lil bugged by that move with SFV...) But don't get me wrong, it looks like with this game they are offering a VERY big line-up right off the bat, so I won't have a problem with buying DLC in the future if it has more characters I would like to play with.
Spencer isn't a bad addition. As long as they throw in the original version of him as a skin choice it will be even better imo, I just don't like the dreadlocked version they came up with in the new game....
@kid_black_star so you must be a good fighter too. You end up mastering a character then you go random just to learn the others. i might be wrong but thats what i do. learn each characters base moves but your favorites you'll learn their advanced moves. But characters only get old if you dominate in any fight with players not at your level. In the end this will be killer game
From the looks of it looks like Spencer is gonna play a helluva lot better than that horrible Bionic Commando comeback Lol! Words can't even be imagined as to how disappointed I was in that game. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt by me being such a fan of the original NES version, but that game was just awful. I'd like to see Marvel bring in Deathlok to match Spencer, but I highly doubt it by so many characters gettin the axe and yes I'm still pissed that Ghost Rider, Daredevil, and the Punisher got the axe!
@angel62808: :lol: so a lot of people complained about Cody being in Super Street Fighter 4 and a good majority of the game main as Cody or play as him :P sides the only character i think they should just kick of the roster is Modock -___- ive seen many characters who are really good so far. Mostly all Capcom and Marvel know what there doing.
@Kid black star Lol sorry i didnt know the dog was actually a bytch.@ZapperZrock dude i completely agree with you man and i have a feeling there are alot more lame characters to come. @Kid black star:Bro I know your all excited about this game but lets face the facts and in the end these people have to put better characters in it becuase so far im not too impressed with the new characters yeah sure thier are alot of great new additions like Dante and X 23 but viewtiful joe,and the knight........really.....weve been waiting for this game for sooooooo long and were getting lame characters already?Trust me im sure its far from over,i guarentee that when this game is released and everyone buys it each and every person will end up saying to themselves hey....why did they put this guy/chick in and not this character or hey why was this character removed from the game to put in this piece of crap.This happenes alot in fighting games they remove characters from the franchise to add a new one witch sometimes ends up being a crappy decision.I think they should keep everyone from MvC2 and add new ones too but trust me when I tell you it wont happene thats too big of a roster so people will be disappointed.With that being said this problem will affect the sales on this game becuase the word will spread.
@ZapperZrock: All the character's look good so far and sides a character you don't like might be your main for this game :P i see it happen all the time in fighting games
@dohji your taking about that big head MODOK. Yes that is the funniest thing i have seen yet. We get all these great characters earlier now we get some that only a few know anyway. @angel62808 Capcom is kinda losing its touch with its game franchises by Westernizing everything. @both of you i completely agree with you. but we have to wait to see what capcom plans on doing to this game. All i know are their are characters i wont want to use at all in this game.
Now you sound like a smartest guy around this place. I was disappointed with brawl as well, especially when Roy and Mewtwo were gone and Olimar made it in. All your suggestions sound awesome but people today man like crap like this. I'm 20 years old now pretty close to your age which is why we probably think a like a little. I'm telling you with all those characters you mentioned I would say I'm definatly buying this game, but with this roster Idk If I'll be able to pick this crap up. Now I'm seeing a new character on youtube just as wack as these two. I 4get his name but he's a big headed guy sitting in a chair from marvel. All I know is with characters like that Capcom won't be receiving a dime from me unless they put in some more really cool characters in the end
Thank you man i appreciate the fact that im not the only guy whose not blind,i would understand if this game wasnt so far apart from the last one but i was like 12 wen the second one came out im now 18 goin on 19 and im pissed that thier already adding these lame ass characters.Ok heres a couple of suggestions.....The whole fantastic 4,or at least Dimitri from Darkstalkers cuz there are very few of then in mvc2,or carnage,or apocalypse,Blanca,Ghost rider,Leon from resident evil,there are soooo many good characters that can be added and if arent added it will make this game very disappointing.Just like smash bros brawls they took away alot of good characters like roy n mew two to put Rob -_- and kept jiggly puff, I swear if i was a game designer id make all these guys ideas look like crap.SMH
@angel62808 I was just trying to mention this on the sir arthur page but people are giving me crap about it. I guess this is wats hip now a days. People seem to think these are cool characters. Guys like you and me are disappointed but we are the odd men out you know. Capcom did what they were suppose to do I guess. They catered to the fans and more people were routing for wack characters I guess. What we may think is cool isn't anymore.
Ok Amaterasu is pretty good when you see the way hes used but the knight bro theres no excuse,guys im not tryina insult any of you but the fact is wether its darkstalkers or not there are a whoooooooooooooole lot of great characters in both marvel and capcom so that they can go ahead and put in that lame characters....all im saying is that for a game anticipated for over a decade they can and should be doing wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy better.
@ killer690 and Downloadpilot Spencer is from the classic side-scrolling NES game called Bionic Commado. It was really popular back then I suppose. But where the bleep is Frank West or Chuck Greene? Zero and Megman? KEN?!?! If they're not here, I'm gonna sue capcom.
What game is Spencer from? Who is he? Anybody know? :/ Also, I hope MvC has different endings for the characters not just the same animation (like what I've seen for X-23). You know, like how Spider-Man would say "So Close", AND "1 for J.J."?
What the heck is that? Who the bleep is spencer? come on capcom you want to include strider hiryu not this guy whoever he is
To all the guys hatin' on dreddy Spence; chill out. Remember, all of the characters will FOUR costumes each. Spidey's have already been revealed, and if you can play as the Iron Spider, then I'd imagine you'd be able to be red-haired Rad. :]
"just the arm, what cant afford the rest of the suit?" And i thought they wouldn't put Nero in here because of that grab and pull in. Still this adds more challenge to the game. learning the move sets to all these characters is going to be hard.
