Hsien-Ko and Sentinel Confirmed for MvC3

By Dog of Thunder, 5 years ago
As mentioned in my article yesterday on the simple control scheme, the rumored inclusion of Hsien-Ko from Capcom's Darkstalkers franchise and Sentinel, from every X-men fighting game since X-Men: Children of the Atom, has been made official.

In this corner, not seen since Vampire Saviors, is Hsien-Ko, a young woman turned into a Chinese Vampire when she and her sister attempted to revive their mother, which sounds a little familiar.



And in this corner, Sentinel! The twenty story tall mutant hunting killing machine that first appeared way back in X-Men # 14 (1965). Since then Sentinel has been an unstoppable force on the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 tournament scene. As you can tell from this debut trailer, the killing machine is still capable of crazy juggling:



One feature Sentinel has lost is his unflinching nature on the first hit of a combo. He will be easier to combo against in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and the change to the combo system which reduces the stun timer on successive hits means players do not have to fear his infinite combos for a second straight game.

You can enjoy both of these characters first hand when Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is released on February 15th in North America and February 18th in Europe.
