After nearly a decade of speculation, Capcom finally confirmed the fan-demanded Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 at their annual Captivate conference in April. Until the game's release date next spring, Capcom and Marvel are going to be happily teasing players about the full lineup of fighters. Captivate revealed a handful, but an article in the latest Game Informer adds four more playable characters into the arena.
Deadpool, Felicia, Dante and Captain America are the latest additions to Marvel vs. Capcom 3. These four join the already known Iron Man, Morrigan, Ryu, Hulk, Chris Redfield and Wolverine.
That's just a fraction of the game's entire cast, too.
"Right now," said producer Ryota Niitsuma back in April, "we're aiming to have, at least, more than 30 characters in the game, but we're still in the middle of development and going forward until a release date, we'll see how many we can fit in. We'd like to add as many as possible."
The demand from fans, in addition to to changes in Marvel's planned rollout of comics and movies in the coming years, are said to shape what will eventually become the final roster. That roster remains in flux, however, and both Capcom and Marvel said they're paying very close attention.
