Phoenix Wright and Nova

The last two character reveals appeared at the Tokyo Game Show in September. A month later, the New York Comic Convention sees two more characters confirmed for the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster - enter Phoenix Wright and Nova.

Rumours of this character joining the game's roster have been circling for months, and now that his appearance has been confirmed, Capcom's Phoenix Wright doesn't need much of an introduction. The defence lawyer has starred in his own series of games since the appearance of the original Nintendo DS and even inspired several spin-off games. His associated catchphrases expressing his "Objection!" and encouraging players to "Take That!" are implemented into the game, and Maya, his spiritual sidekick, takes on a whole new role.

Those of you who can't view the footage can have a look at these screenshots taken from the video.

Marvel's Nova inherited the supernatural powers of the last surviving Centurion of the planet Xandar's elite Nova Corps. He was then tasked with the protection of the reconstructed planet. The character has superhuman strength, increased stamina, durability and agility, sharpened reflexes, and the abilities to fly, generate energy and regenerate health.

As with the last character reveals, Capcom wasn't happy just showing you random footage of the two new characters in action, so the characters are fighting each other again. The first gameplay video shows Phoenix Wright, teamed with Viewtiful Joe and Spencer, taking on Nova and his team, comprising of Wolverine and Taskmaster.

In the rematch, Nova, teamed with Thor and Sentinel, takes on Phoenix Wright and his team, Haggar and Wesker.

Finally, a new trailer for the game confirms the updated roster:

Nova looks like he fits in very well! Phoenix Wright looks very tongue in cheek. Great additions to a great looking game. Builing on the success of the others, Capcom at their best!
Achieving is something that everyone has to do at some point in life. Does it matter what?

I agree Nova looks very promising as does Phoenix Wright to my own surprise, I was really into MVC3 and this will definitely be on my list as well but I agree with everyone else that I am glad I waited before buying MVC3 now the UMVC3 is coming out next month

Rocket Raccoon and Frank West don't have videos but they are still on the website.

I do have MvC2 on my X-Box and played it a lot on my friend's PS2. Never did play MvC3. Heck, I'd never seen any footage of it until Evo earlier this year and that was highly entertaining. Based almost PURELY on the Phoenix Wright gameplay vid though me thinks I'll be getting Ultimate. Looks like it'd be fun regardless.

Confirmed no.Actually it was more revealed: if you looked at the TGS trailer, Capcom revealed the image of every single character in the game. Including the final 2 pics of Frank West and Rocket Raccon. Evidence once again came from the trailers released again where their pictures were shown

Also:

"No Alibi, No Justice, No Dreams, No HOPE!"

The Phoenix Wright Trailer was one of the greatest trailers i've ever seen. He's so badass

You could always trade in MvC3 for credit, that's what I did when this was announced - got £13 back which makes this new version pretty cheap (£25-£13=£12) about what I expect dlc would've cost if not more.

Anyway looking forward to getting this update - love that they've added a Days of Future Past inspired stage (X-Men fan).

CrankyBauer24 said:Wish this would be included as DLC to those who bought this before the other version of this was madeIt's just the same thing with Street Fighter 4 to Super and then Arcade Edition. Really don't know why MVC3 to UMVC3 gets more shit about an upgrade. Oh right, no Megaman...

Well anyway, I'm glad Phoenix Wright remains true to his representation in his series. It'll be a blast to play as him. As for Nova, he just looks very... boring. I'm all for non-mainstream characters like Nova and Rocket but Nova isn't really showing up on my hype meter. He has a higher chance of being played by me than Nemesis does though.
