Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3: New Characters Rated by Hype
1. Frank West
a level up system straight out of Dead-rising and a dynamic move-set with shades of Jill from MvC2 and his previous appearance in Tsukamoto vs Capcom. This is the character I've been looking forward too most and he looks like alot of fun to play.
2. Strider Hiryu
The Marvel Vs Capcom 2 God comes into the fray, totally bad ass and super cool the only character with two Level 3 hyper combos.
3. Dr. Strange
This is Strange's first foray into the world of fighting games, he has incredible hyper combo's and some long range attacks that really make him a power house. It's especially nice to see Strange after playing against his enemies in the last several Vs. Games.
4. Phoenix Wright
The most controversial of the new characters, Wright also has the most dynamic and original move set and play style. This is a character to be feared and respected when in the right hands.
5. Rocket Raccoon
Traps, and a whole lot of guns on a tiny package. It's like Cable meets B.B. Hood.
Firebrand is quick and powerful, he's fully at home in the air but I haven't seen too much of his game-play since his initial release, definitely one to watch.
A gruesome merciless power house of a monster. He's a tentacle monster with Swagger like Haggar.
I was initially super pumped for Vergil but after his reveal I couldn't escape him on any of the live streams. Vergil's tough, but over exposed at this point leading to hype deflation. Still a powerful and viable character and Katana's are just better.
Swag on Cosmic Captain Falcon, Nova's super viable, and looks top tier but some of his moves feel like they've been brought from other characters in the game.
10. Iron Fist
I love my punchy characters and Iron Fist has some dynamic power ups he just doesn't stand out as much as the Raccoons with automatic weapons, zombie fighting reporters, Lawyers, and demons.
11. Ghost Rider
He's a bad ass with a flaming skull, looks entertaining and viable with long range attacks and a bad-ass motorbike..
Hawkeye has a lot of fan service, especially in his Hank Pym Hyper but he's not different enough from Taskmaster too make me want to put him on any of my teams.
