So we’ve seen some information on the characters, combat and visuals in the upcoming fighting game mash-up Marvel Vs Capcom 3. What we haven’t seen though is much in the way of the game’s storyline. This newly released trailer may change things a bit. In the trailer, a handful of confirmed characters do battle over a vial of…something. Whatever is in the vial must be hella important though because we see the ominous Wesker, the powerful Magneto and the almighty Hulk doing battle for it.
What’s more interesting is that throughout the course of the battle, an obvious allegiance is carved out. There seems to be a ‘good’ side and an ‘evil’ side judging from the affiliation of various characters. This is arguable though because Wesker and Magneto are both villains in their respective franchises but they wound up facing one another as rivals.
I’m uncertain what Capcom is going to do to pull some kind of a story together from the expanse of universes encompassed in this game, but we will see when the game hits HD consoles on February 15th. Hit the break for the trailer.
