Spider-Man And Albert Wesker Confirmed For Marvel vs. Capcom 3

By Ishaan . September 18, 2010 . 4:48am


Tron Bonne and Viewtiful Joe got their own fancy character intro movie, and you couldn’t possibly get Capcom to stop talking about the fact that X23 is in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. But for some reason, of all characters, Capcom chose Spider-Man for an under-the-radar stealth announcement at TGS.


But wait! They did the same for poor Albert Wesker, too. And if it weren’t for Gamespot, we would have had no idea. Amazing.



Strangely, as of the time of this post, there’s been no mention of either of these two characters on any of Capcom’s official Tokyo Game Show coverage on Twitter or their community websites or even their press page.

  • Wesker was my #1 request for the game, although I would’ve rather he have been a boss. There’s always hope that the boss is the Sentry.

    Still, now that it’s got Dante, Deadpool, Wesker, and Amateratsu, if the rest of the characters are just Dhalsim over and over again, I’d still be happy with the game.

    • Shuryou

      But so many Dhalsims would be a… YOGA CATASTROPHE!

      Also, Albert Wesker’s moves are much much cooler than I had expected. Great job there.

  • Natat

    Damn, I was getting kind of worried Spidey wasn’t going to be in the game. Relieved to finally see him in the game. Wesker looks amazing, too.

    well…..spider man is a must have character

  • capristrider

    MVC3 without Spider-Man, impossible! I always knew he be in (imagine a “DC heroes game” without Superman). Anyway to quote TAG TEAM -“Whoop There It Is!”

  • Spider-Man was originally supposed to be revealed awhile ago with Viewtiful Joe at SDComic-Con but since Activision was “soon to be releasing” Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, they had to delayed his reveal so it wouldn’t steal spotlight from Activision’s game…think they had a deal or something like that. Because of that, they had to show off Dormammu even though they wanted to reveal him later(most likely with Wesker) since he was the boss character of the game.

    I like how they’ve updated the look of Spider-Man’s moves. Maximum Spider looks especially amazing. The new Webzip move looks like it’d be interesting.

    I’m pretty happy about Wesker, also. :)

    • Yea, Maximum Spider was THE reason I got into the original MvC. I saw it at an arcade and thought it looked amazing. Plus, all the character sprites were just so gigantic and colourful and well-animated.

      Watching a combination combo with his Web Assault + Mega Optic Blast from Cyclops in MvSF was another crazy awesome highlight.

  • WESKEER!!!!! that’s it, now i have my teams completed.

  • YoFace

    Now if Wesker had that kind of agility in the RE games, then just maybe he’d be able to take over the world easier. Just saying.

  • krokounleashed

    Indeed. Play RE5.

  • Damn! Spiderman is so Badass!This game just keeps amazing me.

  • Jayred_Potter

    O.O There are no words for how perfect this game is going to be. NO WORDS!!! Ok there are a few but still, I can’t wait to get my hands on this game

  • Seriously people… someone needs to fill me in on what everyone else is seeing here… all I see is 60% of the screen is BLACK at all times… then when the “Super Moves” happen the screen is 80% all BLACK. How does this look “good” to you people?
