A couple of weeks ago the first batch of downloadable characters was released for Marvel Vs Capcom 3. Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath were the first two characters available at a price, and if rumors are correct, there are more in the works. The originator of the rumor leaked a full roster list last year which all ended up being confirmed for the retail release of Marvel Vs Capcom 3, so they could be on to something here. The characters below are noted as future downloadable content and the informant also claims there will be downloadable stages in the game.
Please keep in mind that none of these characters have been confirmed or denied by Capcom at this time. No mention of future DLC has come from the Capcom camp, so please make a mental note that these are not confirmed characters for the game, no matter how cool they sound.
Update: These rumors have been denied by Capcom so it looks like the list below is just speculation for now. Christian Svensson of Capcom told EventHubs:
I read a rumor that all of these characters would be the next DLC fighters made available for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Is this legit?
Marvel: Dr. Octopus, Juggernaut, Elektra, Apocalypse, Iceman, Thanos and Ms. Marvel.
Capcom: Frank West, Phoenix Wright, Megaman X, Gene, Talbain, Strider, Gail.
Svensson: I’ll save you all the trouble… not legit.
Frank West – Dead Rising
Gail – Dino Crisis
Gene – God Hand
Jon Talbain – Darkstalkers
Mega Man X – Mega Man
Phoenix Wright – Ace Attorney
Strider Hiryu – Strider
