So, Captivate 2010.

US Okamiden (Okami, but on DS! and Chibiterasu!), Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, Dead Rising 2 info...

MvC 3: Fate of Two Worlds coming this Spring 2011, to PS3 and 360... so, downloadable then?

Also, some character art to start the speculatan...

Oh, and the legality scan... well, speaking of many worlds, proof that the multiverse is truly infinite from Excalibur 49, courtesy of a mad Sorcerer Supreme:

At the very least, this explains that one Mikel Midnight fanfic.

And I'm loving Iron Fist's completely ineffectual head punch.

Kotaku has some good roster guesses:

I'm so pumped for this game . I'm a huge fighting game fan and the vs. series is one of my all-time favorites.I REALLLY hope Cyclops makes it in the game. I loved what Capcom did with him in past games.

Also, I still find it strange that there isn't any sign of Spider-man anywhere.

That would reeallly suck. You can't really properly represent Marvel without Spider-man.

I wouldn't worry. THQ used him for their SHS game last year.

SHS = Superhero Squad, right?

I think that's different because they licensed the entire Squad universe, not individual characters. :\

The Super Hero squad game, yea. Spidey was also in that crappy EA fighter while still licensed to Activision.

Anyway, hopefully he's in the game, it's hard to imagine MvC3 without him.

The original press release at c2e2 said it was going to be a disk based release not download.

I am quite excited for this but disappointed Capcom hasn't tried to negotiate for a real prize. Tatsunoko vs. Marvel, anime characters vs comic book characters. No geek, gamer or otaku would not buy a copy, it essentially becomes a license to print money for all three parties.

Taking a look around at some other information I found this.

"And unlike previous Marvel Vs. Capcom games, this latest iteration will have a strong storyline.

"It's important that game's have strong stories for Marvel," Baker said. "With fighting games it's not as essential as an action game or role playing game but we are very much insisting there be some cohesive kind of story for this game."

No! Don't do it! A storyline is what killed Mortal Kombat vs DCU. None of Capcom's other Vs. fighters had one and this just smells like a bad idea.

Midway's financial woes are what killed Mortal Kombat vs. DCU. It was actually the most playable Mortal Kombat game ever, with an extremely solid engine.

The storyline was silly, but it reveled in that silliness and turned it into a kind of bizarre strength. If Capcom is sensible enough to do the same thing here, it'll work out.

Here's who I'm hoping for as playable characters.

For Marvel
*Squirrel Girl
*Rocket Raccoon
*Fin Fang Foom
*Arnim Zola
*Howard the Duck
*Anarchist from X-Statix

For Capcom
*Samonosuke from Onimusha
*Jean Reno from Onimusha 3 (not that I've gotten to play it but come on it is Jean Reno)
*Little Nemo

Because if Shuma-Gorath can make the cut anybody can.

Seriously, they need to put in:

Hawkeye (Clint, not Kate)
Molly Hayes from Runaways
Namor (he doesn't get representation)

I mean, in M vs. C 2 had TWO Wolverines (seriously, that was unfair right there), they can ditch the bone-claws one and go bring in a Marvel character that hasn't been used yet.

MvC2 had two Wolverines to keep them from having to animate another character for Marvel. There's no other reason.

To determine whether your favorite character's going to be in the game or not, you need to ask yourself a very simple question: could you come up with a fighting-game move set for them that doesn't already involve the stuff that the Hulk is going to be able to do? What does Namor, as a flying brick, bring to the table that the Hulk doesn't?

You have a point.

Technically, Molly Hayes and Namor would have the same powersets of super-strength and invulnerability. Still, it would be cool.

Shadowcat and Hawkeye I could see both being unique, although Shadowcats phasing ability would definitely cause a few gamers to call her a "cheese" character and broken. Hawkeye however could have an interesting moveset using bows and arrows.

Any ideas on if Thor would be different from Storm?

Shadowcat's phasing would probably work a lot like the "dodge" from the older King of Fighters games, which was pretty well broken, yeah. It meant projectiles were completely useless.

Storm tends to be in fighting games and Thor doesn't. Since Thor is more prone to hauling off and decking people, I'd imagine he'd be more of a brawler with some pyrotechnics involved.

Molly also has the fact that her sprite and therefore hitbox will be smaller than the adult characters setting her to be more like Megaman and Roll but with a more meele base. I'd set her up as more of a charge fighter with less stamina staying power

Namor would be harder. You might be able to make a striker/assist based movelist for him but that'd be a bit of a stretch and out of character.

I'd say Kate's Hawkeye would make better fighter then Clint since she has more obvious meele skills that wouldn't look as improvised when translated into the game. Either way they'd be ranged based characters that will be labled as spam and cheese.

I had the wacky idea of the Power Pack being in as Roll's opposite number; two of them onscreen at once (Katie with Julie floating above her or Jack with Alex floating above him; could go vice-versa with Jack and Alex), swapping out with a move but sharing a single lifebar so that mechanically they're a two-styles character like SFA's Gen and have a full-height sprite due to one character flying above the other. Their normal and special moves would be individual attacks or two-character teamups, while the super would naturally be all four at once.

A little strange and very unlikely, but I'd actually like seeing them more than Molly.

Squirrel Girl. Put her in as a total joke character...

...who has an impossibly long (like fifteen to twenty steps) and difficult combo that sees her back off, belt out a "CHRRT CHEET CUK CUK CUK!", and then have the Squirrel Army stampede through, blotting out the entire screen--including the HUD interface graphics--before leaving the opponent out cold from an unblockable automatic one-hit KO.

Thus satisfying both the people who think she should be invincible, and the people who think she should be slaughtered by anyone more powerful than your average mugger.
