Scrooge McDuck will be a DLC characterCapcom did make the NES DuckTales games and Disney owns Marvel now, so it's possible.
Amaterasu is Viewtiful Joe's PetWell, Joe DID ride her in opening two.
Mega Man is absent because...He's going to be in Super Smash Bros. 4/U whatever and they want to make a big to-do about his return to the fighting genre via Smash Bros.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3Several gaming sites have already acknowledged the rumor, and leaking legend Lupinko and sidekick Chibi are dropping hints on who's in, as opposed to just giving us the list. If their hints have been decrypted correctly, we're getting Phoenix Wright, Strider Hiryu, and Red Arremer for certain, with Thanos and Dr. Strange strongly believed to be in.
If there's new Darkstalkers character to be revealed, it would be Lord Raptor.He shows up in Dormammu's ending, along with Wesker, Akuma and Red Arremer/Firebrand. They're playable (especially since Firebrand has been confirmed), sans Raptor - so it's a matter of time that he's confirmed as another DS rep.
Wright's moveset will have the following
Wright will be mute in the English versions outside of Objection/Hold It/Take ThatsHis subtitles and mouth movement will be accompanied by beeps.
Most of the new cast will be replaced before Ultimate comes out.To keep up the "surprise" of new characters, all of the leaked characters will be quickly replaced by similar characters.
There's going to be a reference to Odin's beer, and where you can buy it in UltimateBecause this game needs an equivalent to the Jill Sandwich.
There's gonna be a second Galactus fightWhen you defeat Galactus in MvC3 he says I MUST NOW SQUASH YOU LIKE THE BUG THAT YOU ARE. Then it's the ending. In UMVC3, Galactus will unleash his full power and become a full-fledged SNK Boss.
Doctor Strange's ending will be the same as Hsien-Ko's ending, but real...because that's what I really, really want it to be.
The Nemesis T-Type in Ultimate is a Tricell experiment Gone Horribly RightHere's the Tricell Laboratory stage before and after. After breaking out, Nemesis swiped a Rocket Launcher, picked out his favorite trench coat and wrought an adequate quantity of havoc.
Phoenix Wright is going to be a Lethal Joke Character
Phoenix Wright will not be entering the fray alone.To bridge off of the above "Wright's moveset will have the following" and "Phoenix Wright is going to be a Lethal Joke Character" WMGs, we've already heard that Nick fights without fighting. However, that doesn't mean that he can't have someone else do the fighting for him (loophole!). And because of the Power Creep, Power Seep elements of this series, who's not to say that Franziska's whip couldn't actually hurt one of Nick's foes or that Godot could actually fire eye beams (of course, this means that he'd would have to be voiced by Nolan North) or that a simple Finger Wag from Edgeworth could actually demoralize the opposition? Sure, it sounds weird, but when a former-pro-wrestler-turned-mayor can piledrive a Dimension Lord, nothing is no longer out of the question.
The Poster in the background of the Sentinel Stage = Mega Man's return?The poster in the background of the new Sentinel stage there is a poster with characters from Marvel vs Capcom 2 that aren't playable in 3. All are marked with red stickers that say things along the lines of "apprehended" except for one: Mega Man. Coincidence? Or the devs Trolling us?
Phoenix Wright is possibly the biggest Badass in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3First of all, he's got the least combat experience out of all the characters. Secondly, he can pwn Galactus like the rest of the roster. Lastly, he's basically pulling double duty, both fighting and performing an investigation at the same time.
Phoenix Wright's inclusion in Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is why he only suffered minor injuries in Case 2 of Apollo JusticeHaving only bore a lot of powerful attacks, Wright became more resilient, hence the hit-and-run and flung into a pole only left him with a sprained ankle.
Vergil's resurgence of popularity from being in this game will convince Capcom to bring him Back from the Dead
The reason why Phoenix Wright is in the game is ...Defending the player for the events in Deadpool ending. Hence why they are counterparts to each other. It's going to take an Ace Attorney to prove the player's innocence.
Why Phoenix Wright's Level 3 is the most damaging (i.e 600K) in the game?It's because that the hyper is essentially a mental assault. As many people said, mental breakdowns damages one more heavily than physical harms. Not only that, some of his attacks are indeed inclined with mental assault and Your Mind Makes It Real: In the Courtroom Mode, when he's shown to "throw" the right evidences that he found, he isn't throwing it - he just holds it in front of his hand and a variety of projectiles shoots out from it. Then, his "Objection" is basically telling the opponent to shut up - thus, stunning them. As well as his aura finger attack in Turnabout mode; it's him accusing the opponent as guilty.
The reason "Venom was never an option" according to Capcom...
Phoenix Wright gets assisted by Mia Fey during Turnabout ModeThe gold aura that surrounds Nick when reaching Turnabout Mode represents her spiritual presence, and the giant aura pointer fingers he gets are thanks to Mia using her ghost abilities to power up his signature move (if this is the case, it could be some sort of Shout-Out to Ghost Trick).
The Classic Mega Man will be playable, as a DLC or in a next versionHe got so many cameos and references in U Mv C 3 - from not being slain nor apprehended in the Days of Future Past stage, to appearing in Thor's and Nova's endings.
The alleged "crime" that Phoenix Wright is somehow able to convict everyone of......is being responsible for Mega Man not being added. Seriously, look at the Fan Dumb whining. Everyone is guilty. EVERYONE.
Based on Rocket Racoon's hitting on Ammy...
If the Fantastic Four are added to this or subsequent MvC games, they will play similarly to Phoenix WrightOne character, probably Reed Richards, will be the point man and the other three will come out as assists and in hypers.
Phoenix Wright isn't actually "fighting" anyone.He's arguing with them about how they don't need to fight and/or whether his opponent's goals are reasonable. The button pressing we do is just Gameplay Mechanics. Since a lot of his arguing in his universe is a kind of magic; (Psyche-locks) in the united Marvel/Capcom-verse, this is a lot stronger. Thus, he convinces them that they don't need to fight. Against truly committed evil/alien beings; if he wins an argument, they're comatose for a little while (same period of time if they get physically beaten in a fight), but when they come to they have no memory of the argument.
Maya Fey knows Mu no KenPhoenix Wright is pretty hardy to survive attacks from both Marvel and CAPCOM characters for a normal, but what about Maya Fey? Even if her shield fails or she charges into projectiles, she doesn't even look seriously hurt.
Maya Fey is doing the real fightingPhoenix Wright was having a normal day in courtroom land when a giant robot, a mercenary dressed in red and an evil genius with sunglasses busted in through a window. Wright (and everyone else in the court except Maya) is apparently too focused on the trial to notice, so Maya uses her psychic powers to make it so every time Wright OBJECTS or the Judge slams his gavel, giant blue lasers shoot out the opponents.
Ryu's ending in Street Fighter X Tekken is canon, and Pandora sent Ryu to either the Asura's Wrath or Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 universe.It would explain his appearance in both games (and also why Ken didn't follow). Bonus points for Akuma using his Demon Armageddon to launch Ryu right through a portal to parts unknown in this game, which would probably send him to this game (and also explain why Ryu looks like he's waking up from a bad dream in the intro.) With that said....
Akuma is relentlessly pursuing Ryu in all three games: Asura's Wrath, Street Fighter X Tekken and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.Notice that whenever Ryu is making a crossover appearance, Akuma isn't too far behind? Let me explain. Pandora in Street Fighter X Tekken sent Ryu to the Asura's Wrath universe, where he meets Asura, and promptly gets whaled on by Akuma, who uses his Demon Armageddon to launch Ryu right into a portal and into the next crossover: Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
Dust will either be in the next game, or in DLC.Out of all the women at Deadpool's party in his ending, she's the only one that wasn't in the game. Foreshadowing perhaps?
The "Slain" and "Apprehended" Poster in Days of Future Past is a Sequel HookThe Marvel vs. Capcom game will cover the Civil War Storyline with Capcom Characters. The Poster shows most of the Anti-Registration characters. 'Slain' means that the person eventually died fighting against the Pro-Registration side, while 'Apprehended' means that the person eventually turned him/herself in. Mega Man is still on the loose, hence why he doesn't have a 'Slain' or 'Apprehended' sign
MODOK's moveset is based on a scrapped moveset for Professor XavierPsychic blasts he can charge up, hidden Danger Room-style traps, and a weaponized mobile chair. It's like they were coming up with ideas for Xavier to be a viable fighting game character before deciding to use a more off-the-wall and entertaining choice. Replace Killer Illumination with a Lvl. 3 called "Astral Plane" (or perhaps a brief buff that turns you into Onslaught) and you get the idea.
