Just a day ago Marvel Vs Capcom 3 finally released. In that day’s time many are enjoying the great new fighter, but some people have decided to find secrets hidden on the disc instead of practicing air combos. What they found, were two characters hidden in the disc. Dr. Octopus from Spiderman lore, and Frank West of Dead Rising were both found on the disc although neither of them is playable…at the moment.
It’s unclear at this point if these are just characters that were going to be included in the game but were scrapped, or if they will be coming as downloadable content in the future. The important thing is, they’re in there. Frank West was rumored to be included in the game in January and was said to be canned because of work that needed to be done to include him. Doctor Octopus however is a different story entirely. There has been no mention of the super villain up until now.
I guess time will tell if these two characters were just old code that wasn’t cleaned up before launch, or if they will be playable characters unlocked in the game’s future. The first DLC pack has already been announced and it will contain two character, Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath.
