I hate rumors as much as the next gamer, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to know the gossip on everyone’s lips. Speaking of gossip, an ex-Twitter user claims to know the identities of the remaining unrevealed characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3‘s diverse roster.
As we know, sometimes these rumors turn out to be true, as the recent C.Viper reveal was rumored many months before Capcom’s confirmation. Perhaps the case will be similar with some of or all of these characters. The supposed characters are as follows:
- Hsien-Ko of the Darkstalkers series
- Mike Haggar of the Final Fight series (previously rumored)
- Akuma of the Street Fighter series
- Phoenix of the X-men series (previously rumored)
- Taskmaster of the Avengers series
- Sentinel as seen in the X-men series
Of these rumored characters, the one I’m most interested in is Hsien-Ko. She was quite a technical character in the Darkstalkers games. Akuma is believable because you can never have enough giis in a Capcom fighting game. Phoenix was rumored a few months back, similar to C.Viper, a now confirmed character.
Competitive gamers everywhere should pray that Sentinel is truly just a rumor and won’t appear in the game. He was easily the cheapest most overpowered character in MVC2. Of course all of these are to be treated as rumors until further notice. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 releases for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 15th.
