Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Character Reveals

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
The Tokyo Game Show 2011 is in full swing, and Capcom has shown up with a large arsenal of trailers and screenshots for their latest two Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 characters.

The first new character to be introduced is Marvel's Iron Fist. Daniel Rand has been trained by the legendary Lei Kung the Thunderer, and has been infused by the superhuman energy of the dragon Shou-Lao the Undying. This combination gives Rand the power of the Iron Fist, enhancing his natural abilities and allowing him to summon and focus his chi. Strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, reflexes and senses are all intensified to extraordinary levels, and his martial arts skills become more formidable.

The second new character is Capcom's Vergil, the identical twin of Dante (of Devil May Cry fame). Unlike Dante, Vergil has embraced the devil, and seeks to claim the entirety of their father's power for himself. Players wanting to know more should play Devil May Cry 3 to learn the outcome of his quest.

Capcom wasn't happy just showing you random footage of the two new characters in action. What can be a better way to demonstrate their fighting skills than having the characters fight each other? The first gameplay video shows Iron Fist, teamed with Ryu and Iron Man, taking on Vergil and his team, comprising of Chris Redfield and Hulk.



In the rematch, Vergil, teamed with Trish and Dante, takes on Iron Fist and his team, Doctor Doom and Super-Skrull.



Finally, a new trailer for the game confirms all of the revealed fighters so far:



Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is due to be released on November 15th in North America and November 18th in Europe. Check out the details for the pre-order bonuses here.
