Shadow Charlie, Juggernaut, Iceman and Dr. Doom - Marvel vs. Capcom Origins character profiles

Once again Capcom and Marvel have updated their blogs with new character profiles for Marvel vs. Capcom Origins.

Today, they talk Shadow Charlie, Juggernaut, Iceman and Dr. Doom.

Shadow Charlie

First appearance: Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter (1997)
MvCO appearance: Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes

Before we start talking about Shadow, let's quickly recap Charlie's backstory.

Charlie's name is first mentioned in Guile's ending on Street Fighter II; it was only mentioned in the Western versions though - not in the original Japanese text. A few years later (before, canonically) Charlie joined the main cast of fighters in Street Fighter Alpha. His fighting style is strikingly similar to Guiles's, and as it was revealed that Charlie is actually Guile's supperior, it all started to make some sense... right?

Anyways, in X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Charlie's ending shows that he is captured by M.Bison.

In Street Fighter: The Movie and cartoon TV series, Charlie then becomes Blanka... LOL!

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle director wants his company's version of the game to be casual and friendly

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle director wants his company's version of the game to be casual and friendly JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle director Hiroshi Matsuyama, wants his company's version of the game to be as casual and friendly as possible, he told Joystiq at the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 event held last week.

When asked if he hoped that All Star Battle, the new JoJo's fighter being developed for Namco, would be accepted by the competitive fighting game community (or if that was even a goal for the project), Matsuyama responded via translator that he "actually prefers JoJo to become a game that casual users can pick up and play, because if you appeal to the 'maniac' users too much, it becomes too niche, and the people who can play this game become very limited."

Do you guys think this is the right strategy, is it the right move? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

Svensson covers why specific Capcom fighters have never been re-released, if Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles product was considered

Svensson covers why specific Capcom fighters have never been re-released, if Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles product was considered Speaking via the Capcom Unity boards, Christian Svensson responded to questions about specific fighting game titles and why they haven't been re-released. If you're curious why a certain game hasn't resurfaced yet, this is a good place to check on the reason.

Svensson also briefly talked about why he thinks Capcom never touched the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Hit the jump to read everything.

Wade: Have you guys at Capcom ever at one point considered doing anything with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series?

Svensson: I don't recall TMNT ever coming up in discussions. I suspect that's in part because I don't think it was ever as big in Japan as it was in the States.

Japanese gamers out of luck when it comes to Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, PSN Europe release delayed

Japanese gamers out of luck when it comes to Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, PSN Europe release delayed Enjoying the re-release of the original Marvel vs. Capcom and Marvel Super Heroes? Well, not if you're in Japan. As it turns out, the title isn't available to gamers in the land of the rising sun.

This isn't the first time Capcom has skipped that market with one of their re-releases as Final Fight Double Impact and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix were not made available over there, either. This is despite Daigo Umehara claiming that SSF2T HD Remix would have been a hit if it was released in Japan.

If gamers are willing to jump through a few hoops, they can import Marvel vs. Capcom Origins with a US PSN card or U.S. Region Xbox Live account.

Things aren't completely uneven though, as Japanese gamers recently saw a re-release of Capcom vs. SNK 2 on the PSN, which is something Svensson said they're looking into bringing over to the U.S. side.

Closing this out, Capcom UK's community manager for Street Fighter X Tekken, Dawgtanian, noted that the PSN Europe release of MvC Origins wasn't available yet, but it is up on XBLA.

Fans wanted bigger breasts in Dead or Alive 5 says director - Team Ninja initially tried to tone down sexuality

Fans wanted bigger breasts in Dead or Alive 5 says director - Team Ninja initially tried to tone down sexuality The debate whether Dead or Alive 5 is too sexual has been a constant subject in our community, but when Team Ninja toned down the sexuality in their latest release, the fans responded that they didn't like the change of direction.

Dead or Alive 5 director, Yohei Shimbori, commented on how things played out.

"We were getting feedback from the overseas offices to tone down the sexuality -- to tone down the sexiness of the game, and of the characters.

"We actually got a lot of feedback from people who were playing it, saying, 'We want bigger breasts. Make the characters more like that.' That was kind of surprising.

"There's definitely still room for having sexualized aspects, if you have a solid fighting game system there, there's nothing wrong with having beautiful characters as a layer on top of that -- that's another layer of entertainment that there's a need for. If there wasn't a need for it, people wouldn't have responded to the alpha demo like they did, and send us feedback."

Noting that Team Ninja learned some things with the release of Ninja Gaiden 3, they cited that it's very important to have the power of the series behind you, honoring what existing fans want to see.

Shimbori added that fan feedback hasn't changed much over the years, that players want cool, unique characters, entertaining stages, and a balanced core gameplay system, and apparently expect to see large breasts.
