Depends on if they're paired with same company characters, alternate company characters or both.

Street Fighter X Tekken did same company, but also picked some weird and awesomely unexpected combinations, both for humor (Zangief/Rufus, Ibuki/Rolento or Yoshi/Raven) and just in general (Sagat/Dhalsim, Bob/Julia).

Cap and Iron Man are a given.

Someone working on Mv C 3's "story" doesn't give us a ton to judge this on either way.

Felicia and Morrigan, assuming both make it in. As long as they don'the add any villains in, the Darkstlakes are likely to group with each other. Hsien-Ko and Lord Raptor would just be wrong. Lol.

Or, if they take a page from Project X Zone, Morrigan and Demitri, or Morrigan and Chunl-Li. Alternately, Dante and Demitri

If Jon makes it in they might pair him up with Felicia. But he won't so I guess we won't have to worry about that.

I would really like Jon Talbain to get in. Also, I'll go ahead and jump on the Ry (Breath of Fire) a Kyosuke trains. Woo woo! Disappointment!

I hope Firebrand stays.

Still need the Iron Man/Morrigan flirtfest that will inevitably happen in the story.

Heck, let's shoot for the stars.

Roy and Roberto for the "two awesome dudes from a game Hashil likes" team.

Being a bit more realistic, I would like to see Batsu make it in. Wasn't he in Tatsunoko?

@Known Unknown: Though if Winter Soldier makes it in, Cap/Bucky would also work. But Iron Man/Captain America is the most likely team.

Spider-Man depends, i can see him and Agent Venom/Flash Thompson.

And since it's officially 2v2, i'm hoping for Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

It's a longshot, but I'd be so happy if Lynne from Ghost Trick made it in as a Puppet Fighter with the help of Sissel. She may not be the protagonist, but she has a better shot than him on account of not being an incorporeal ghost.

[up][up]Yup, he was. He had a cool level 3 where he did one of 3 combination attacks depending on who his partner is.

Oh boy here we go with the brand new character wishlists. Not counting characters who've already appeared in previous Mv C entries.

Capcom:

  • Samanosuke though I can see them using Soki instead from Cv T
  • Captain Commando since Captain Marvel's already there
  • Laura Matsuda or Rashidoooo, in the vein of C. Viper
  • Leon Kennedy, he's always been cooler than Chris
  • Date Masamune or Sanada Yukimura
  • one of the Power Stone guys
  • Frank West
  • Miles Edgeworth
  • Ryu from Breath of Fire
  • someone from Monster Hunter, probably a dude in Rathalos armor or a girl in Kirin armor

Marvel:

  • Black Panther
  • Winter Soldier
  • Kamala Khan
  • America Chavez
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Miles Morales
  • Blade
  • Luke Cage
  • Moon Girl with Devil Dinosaur as a Tron-alike (long shot)
  • them not ditching all of the X-Men

If they actually do ditch all X-Men and FF-affiliated characters I imagine a lot of tourney people are going to absolutely riot. It's not like the SSB 4 Snake situation where a character beloved in the tourney scene was absent because of licensing issues. Marvel actually owns these characters, they're just not going to let them in over a stupid grudge.

I mean, if they cut down the mutant roster to the bare essentials that's one thing. Previous Mv C games suffered from a glut of them. But ditching characters like Storm, Phoenix, Magneto, and even Wolverine? That would upset way more people than it's worth. The X-Men are still hugely popular in their own rights, and Marvel still makes money off of these characters when it's not in film form. Would be a colossally idiotic move. Then again Perlmutter has shown himself to be incredibly petty and Stupid Evil at times. If they absolutely must, then I'd rather see the X-Men characters turned into DLC than blacklisting them completely.

[up] Captain Commando was in both MvC1 and MvC2. Also, the Monster Hunter dev team apparently shot down the idea of a single individual Hunter character in MvC3, as they didn't want to imply that there was a single main character/weapon-style (why they didn't go for the obvious plan B of using either a Palico or one of the monsters as a character is beyond me).

Woops, put him in there before I added the "no returners" rule. Anyway if not a human then I can see them using an actual Rathalos. Especially since the rumored movie is going to use one.

Dec 3rd 2016 at 6:35:46 PM

I can't help but think that Breath of Fire Ryu has no chance because of the name conflict with Street Fighter Ryu.

Therefore, I'm holding out for a Fou-Lu announcement.

Dec 3rd 2016 at 6:37:34 PM

I do not want to see America Chavez anywhere near this.

You know, I'm not sure how it'd work, but I would love it if they could use MCU Quicksilver, and just make him a straight up expy of X-Men Quicksilver.tongue

Who else? Isn't that the $25,000 question.

I don't find her that interesting either but apparently a lot of people do and it's not like an appearance here couldn't be a good opportunity at her making a mark for herself, like Carol's other appearances can with her. After all the Iron Man films salvaged Tony's character when his comics depiction was basically Fuhrer Stark.

[up]She also has the same "Boring powers" issue as Kamala.

If you just need a physical fighter put in Iron Fist or Luke Cage.

No offense, but just because you keep saying that over and over and over and over again doesn't actually make it so. Multiple people in this very forum and other sites I've seen across the web have expressed interest in having Ms. Marvel as a character.

[up] True, but Chavez just has flight and enhanced strength. That's...dull compared to at least Iron Fist.

Again, a lawyer who has nothing resembling fighting ability at all made it in as a playable character. "Boring powers" is a non-existent argument for this franchise.

Dec 3rd 2016 at 7:29:37 PM

[up] Well there's also the fact I don't care about Chavez compared to Iron Fist but that's straight bias. That's not really a good reason to exclude a character.

[up][up][up]

No offense, but you just proved that you don't know anything about America's powers, it's not just strength and flight. In fact , her powers are flashy enough to fit perfectly in a Marvel vs Capcom game.

Same with Kamala Khan, who's power is not just stretching. Again, no offense, but it doesn't seem like you are a good judge of their powers, since their powers can do more than what you're saying.

[up]

Ok, then just say that it's because of personal bias. But don't claim it's because of "boring powes", when you don't know what their powers are.

By the same token, respect that other people have a different opinion than yours and do want characters like Kamala and America in the game.

And making false claims about their powers won't change their minds either.

[up] I just said I don't care about Chavez, who's a C lister at best. Khan on the other hand is being pushed heavily.

I'm looking at this from a surface perspective. "Ok, she's boring, never heard of her, oooh, Venom! He's evil again! Use him!"
