Fighting game community Shoryuken.com recently discovered an anonymous Twitter account that professed to having deep insider knowledge about Capcom’s upcoming crossover fighter. The tipster’s Twitter page has since been deleted, but not before the user could reveal what they alleged will be the final roster for Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
According to the source, who went by the Twitter handle klennox22, the last set of character announcements will include Phoenix, Sentinel, and Taskmaster on the Marvel side, plus Hsien-Ko, Mike Haggar, and Akuma representing Capcom. Galactus is listed as the game’s final boss.
One character that apparently won’t be in the game, however, is Dead Rising’s Frank West. “The creative deadline was in September. Frank was pulled about two months prior, and there was no time to add a new character in his place,” read one of klennox22′s numerous posts on the matter, continuing, “Shuma-Gorath was removed from the game to even the sides, and the decision was made to offer him as DLC.”
Shoryuken preserved an archive of the account’s posts, so whether these leaks prove legitimate or not, they’re definitely worth a read for Marvel vs. Capcom fans. Give it a look and let us know what you think.
