Akuma and Taskmaster Revealed for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Last week Capcom promised us new character reveals for the very hyped upcoming fighter MVC3 and just as this week began, they delivered. This morning, we got a pair of reveals which you have already heard speculated  if you follow the game closely. Taskmaster of the Avengers and Akuma from Street Fighter have joined the fray, along with the awesome gameplay videos to prove it. You’ll remember the leaked image of Akuma which recently popped up on the nets.

Akuma is very well equipped, sporting a dash and an ultra that ignore projectiles, a diagonal blast and a rapid fire Hadouken super. Taskmaster looks absolutely beastly with his Spider-Man and Captain America attacks, long sword chains, gun and energy arrows. They both look like very interesting and functional additions.

This practically solidifies the last two rumored characters from last year’s leaked list. Those  are, in case you forgot, Hsien Ko from Darkstalkers and Sentinel from X-men. Ko is practically in the game and I am getting more pumped at the very thought of it! MVC3 launches on February 15th for HD consoles. Hit the break for the vids. Shun Goku Satsu!
