Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Reveal: Haggar and Phoenix

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Reveal: Haggar and Phoenix

By Christopher Monfette - Posted Jan 07, 2011

Yesterday, we pulled back the curtain on Marvel vs. Capcom 3, offering a few first impressions from our hands-on time with the title, and today we can officially pull back to the curtain a bit further on two of the super-secret characters who’ve made the roster this time around. Please give a warm welcome to Marvel favorite, Phoenix, and Street Fighter staple, Haggar!

We can already tell the first question on your lips, “Can Phoenix turn into Dark Phoenix?” and the answer is a resounding, “Yes!” In fact, Dark Phoenix is the single most powerful character in Marvel vs. Capcom history, transforming upon your death when all five super-move bars are filled. As Dark Phoenix, you’ll fire off a tremendously powerful onslaught of dark energy that’s virtually unblockable, but you’ll also have a countdown lifebar that’ll drain rather quickly before you revert back to Phoenix. So there’s an incredible amount of strategy involved to make the transformation worth it, requiring that players exercise restraint and not use their super-moves, live long enough to fill up their bars completely, and then sacrifice a life in order to transform.

Overall, Phoenix is a ranged character – a “rush down” character – capable of using fireballs. Her assists aren’t exactly the most powerful as the rest of her moveset is fairly beefy. There’s no doubt in our minds that she’ll be a (very frustrating) fan favorite.

And speaking of “beefy,” the muscle-bound mayor, Haggar, makes his appearance this time around. An extremely powerful grappler, Haggar exercises a series of highly effective grabs and piledrivers when at close range. He’s a big, burly, bumbling figure, so don’t expect a massive amount of nuance. Just go in swinging, but be aware that you make a pretty sizeable target. Haggar generally works best when paired with long-range, projectile-assist characters and smaller, faster allies such as Arthur.

Check back with G4TV.com as the roster for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 continues to grow.
