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 above, those of you who can't view the vignette can have a look at these screenshots taken from the video.
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:
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
