Spencer, Arthur, Magneto & MODOK confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • October 8, 2010 at 6:44 p.m. PDT
Update: An image showing Spider-man's new alternative outfits has been added into this story.

Spencer from Bionic Commando and Arthur from Ghost 'n Goblins, and Magneto & MODOK from the Marvel universe were confirmed as playable characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 at New York Comic-Con 2010.

Hit the link below for more screen shots and information.


Click images for larger versions

• Arthur has all the attacks and specials he had in the original Ghost 'n Goblins games.

• Spider-man is the first character they're showing who will have alternate costumes. Iron Spider, Symbiote Spidey, and the new Spider-Man costume from the upcoming "Big Time" comics.

• The plot of the game is that Doctor Doom, with the help of Wesker, has assembled a team of villains together that could destroy both Capcom and Marvel's worlds. As such, it's a "Battle that will decide the fate of two worlds." i.e. Fate of Two Worlds.

• The lead battle designer for MvC3 is the same person from Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

• There could be a Marvel Super Heroes 2 if there was enough requests for one, but currently there are no plans. This is a pretty standard answer that Capcom gives, though.

• New game modes will be announced once more characters are revealed.

• Marvel will officially announce two new characters on their side at the Comic-Con panel tomorrow (Saturday) at 10:45 a.m. EST tomorrow. This is likely Magento and M.O.D.O.K who were accidentally leaked.

juanrock said on October 8, 2010 at 4:45 p.m.

@cornwad

i agree, why the hell would they chose that aweful version when they have a much cooler one!

#12
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 4:45 p.m.

I love this Nathan if you don't like him don't play him and his alt colors are just alternate colored outfits of his dread look

#13
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 4:48 p.m.

It's not his Alt Corn it's his outfit
Bionic SHORYUKENNNNNNNNN!!

DjKyuubiRyu said on October 8, 2010 at 4:49 p.m.

OMFG this is gonna $UX cuz Capcom got the most silly lookin character,WHY CAPCOM WHY!!!!!!!! we want MEGAMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#15
juanrock said on October 8, 2010 at 4:49 p.m.

@Ex_Ein

i have nothing against this one, but the game he is from is not very good and the other one is a clasic, guess wich one i wanted to play

#16
Skogen said on October 8, 2010 at 4:49 p.m.

This is starting to come off as Capcom whoring out their new catalog. What's next? The main character from Dark Void?

#17
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 4:51 p.m.

Juanrock it's actually a pretty decent game(I almost platinumed it) it was dodgey at times but still handled well and was tons of fun especially coming off rearmed

Skogen you know bionic commando and ghost and goblins have their roots in 20 year old games

#18
puertorican12187 said on October 8, 2010 at 4:52 p.m.

WHY THE HELL IS IT SPENCER FROM THAT CRAPPY X360/PS3 BIONIC COMMANDO GAME? WHY ISN'T IT REARMED SPENCER?

GODDAMMIT CAPCOM.

#19
Faethon said on October 8, 2010 at 4:53 p.m.

2 additional wasted slots...

#20
Oroku_Saki said on October 8, 2010 at 4:53 p.m.

I'm just hoping we get a symbiote. I'm patiently waiting for Marvel's announcement tomorrow.

Blackapino1984 said on October 8, 2010 at 4:54 p.m.

Guys check it out.

Magneto and MODOK

#22
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 4:54 p.m.

Cornwad
Yes I'm pretty sure because I like the fact Capcom's not just relying on call backs to their old days and actually are trying new things (he like DMC and Bionic Commando and Dead Rising 2)

#23
GerarRv said on October 8, 2010 at 4:55 p.m.

Yeaaah, Finally Arthur.

But THAT SPENCER? ARE YOU SERIOUS? Bionic Commando 2009 it's a good game...But that spencer sucks, sucks over 9000.

#24
Megadautilus said on October 8, 2010 at 4:55 p.m.

These are the best reveals yet people!

We aren't getting classic mega man dammit! Capcom has way to many small characters.

#27
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 4:56 p.m.

Oh lord are you serious blackaPino? that looks like it's crap and just ruined my day

#28
irrenmann said on October 8, 2010 at 4:57 p.m.

The 2009 Bionic Commando game was not very well received, but it did have its moments. However, many players even in that one used the costume that made Spencer look like the NES version of the character. I hope that is an option in MvC3.

#29
CBX said on October 8, 2010 at 4:57 p.m.

@#25 well no ones forcing u to buy the game when it comes out...

#30
Blackapino1984 said on October 8, 2010 at 4:57 p.m.

I'm excited for Magneto. I never really used him in mvc2 but, MODOK. I mean really?

#31
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 4:58 p.m.

Cornwad
if you look at the pictures of in game you can see that they have an alternate color of spencer...but it looks like 2009 spencer

#32
cuttyb1987 said on October 8, 2010 at 4:59 p.m.

Wait they dismissed JIN hell naw I need him apart of my T Bonne Doom group man so now Marvel needs to announce Gambit and Storm then cuz I'm getting worried about this list honestly
I'am happy for Arthur

#33
Tortured said on October 8, 2010 at 5 p.m.

@25
I disagree I think these are great additions

I just cant get over them choosing this spencer over the classic one

#34
Wishpig said on October 8, 2010 at 5 p.m.

Argh... Bionic Commander... MODOK??? So lame!

Oh well, Arthurs' a cool surprise. He deserves his spot.

#35
Faethon said on October 8, 2010 at 5:01 p.m.

OMG MODOK!? Why on earth could they possibly add this character to the final roster!? Indeed, the dissapointments keep on coming! Arthur, Spencer and MODOK, 3 totally wasted slots! Damn it, I want Phoenix, Psylocke and Storm from Marvel's side! And my hopes keep fading away!!

#36
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 5:01 p.m.

Blackapino my stomach hurts at both of those characters

CAPCOM HOW COULD U!!!!!!!!

#39
DudeMeister said on October 8, 2010 at 5:02 p.m.

lame...
should've gone with spencer's rearmed design.

also i agree with megaman belonging in this game. not that i'm a megaman fan myself, not even in the slightest. but you just can't represent capcom without megaman, it just feels weird.

#40
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 5:02 p.m.

Cornwad those are his alt colors instead of having a black/red spiderman they just gave him a full alt as his alternate colors

#41

Spencer, Arthur, and Magneto are all good. But MODOK... really?

#44
Blackapino1984 said on October 8, 2010 at 5:05 p.m.

I'm sorry. Spencer looks like fun to play though. I mainly have feelings of nothing for MODOK.

http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/action/ma...

Haven't watched the Arthur vid yet

#45
DudeMeister said on October 8, 2010 at 5:06 p.m.

modok?
uhh, that suddenly makes me consider if i still want to buy this game :(
but magneto's welcome, anyway.

#47
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 5:07 p.m.

Battle Network Megman is also out(live blog said it)
Meaning only: Original, Star Force and Volnutt (maybe XZ) or a completely new design will be there and the director did say one megaman will be in MVC3

#48
camseyeview said on October 8, 2010 at 5:07 p.m.

hmm who wants to bet one of the villains is going to betray dr doom?

i mean come on multiple villain egos working together will sooner or later snap..like ganondorf did with bowser in brawl..

but sweet for more characters, but why not rearmed spencer...maybe an alternate costume scheme?

#49
Blackapino1984 said on October 8, 2010 at 5:08 p.m.

OMG I have to play Arthur too. My list of characters just keep growing.

#52
Loghorn said on October 8, 2010 at 5:10 p.m.

Arthur & Magneto = Awesome.

M.O.D.O.K & the Nathan Spencer from PS3/360 Bionic Commando instead of the one from Rearmed 1 & the upcoming sequel = LAME.

Catalyst here's a little something on the selection process:"TQ says that what they try to do is make a mixture of characters that are mainstays like Wolverine, Cap and newer characters with interesting mechanics like Deadpool and Super Skrull." from the live blog

#57
Faethon said on October 8, 2010 at 5:14 p.m.

OK Capcom, you can kill us all now...
Weird choices...

Loghorn I hope you know the one in the upcoming sequel has a mustache and isn't being developed by the same team as Rearmed 1, most of those guys went to Might and Delight while the more higher up guys and the guys who gave you dread spencer are working on Rearmed 2 at Fatshark

#60
Meanguy said on October 8, 2010 at 5:15 p.m.

Catalyst or any other admins theres a error in Magneto you wrote Magento

#61
camseyeview said on October 8, 2010 at 5:16 p.m.

well ex gin im just saying since well wesker is the kind fo guy to do it, but maybe they can give us a better twist like

IF apocalypse was in it taking over weskers body somehow like mind control or something

i mean come on wesker is a little too obvious to betray dr doom

#62
Le_Shad said on October 8, 2010 at 5:16 p.m.

Blackapino1984 said on October 8, 2010 at 5:16 p.m.

Spencer: How much of that suit is bionic?
Tony: Just the arm? What? Can't afford the rest of the suit?

I like.

#64
DimmuMaiden said on October 8, 2010 at 5:17 p.m.

YEEES spencer actually i like the nes bionic commando but the xbox 360 and ps3 sucked for me so i dont care too much of spencer but cool he is in,irony indeed, i was making fun with my pals about a fight modok against xavier,looks like marvel shut me up and they added one of my favorite villians lol and arthur too awesome to say something about him, i hope he isnt hard as a f#$% to use as his game jk, AND HELL YES my Babe MAGNETO is back >:D time to make people suffer online :D

#65
Faethon said on October 8, 2010 at 5:18 p.m.

I just saw Arthur's gameplay video and, honestly, i found him really realy interesting! But, I insist, that Spencer and MODOK (cannot believe it yet!) shouldn't make it in the final roster. In addition, the game needs more female characters! Especially from Marvel's side! PLZ Capcom, bring us Psylocke, Jean and Storm!

#71
juanrock said on October 8, 2010 at 5:21 p.m.

awesome aditions, modok is a great villian and magneto obviously is great, but the game is still a sausage fest, they should really add a few more girls

well granted its a fighter, but maybe its time we can get atleast a decent story with the story mode instead of like

bad guy: i want to rule the world!

FIGHT!

it just seems like a better then the things we see with SSF4

and seriously everyone stop bitching and moaning its pointless and immature..

Had a feeling Arthur would be in. There were enough requests for it that I recall. Still need more female characters me thinks. not enough in my book. Felicia, Chun, X-23, morrigan, Trone bonne That's all? Hmmm

#82

cretin said on October 8, 2010 at 5:29 p.m.

the character specific pre fight quotes (a la spencer and iron man) sound like a really cool idea.

#86
Blackapino1984 said on October 8, 2010 at 5:29 p.m.

I like the way Spencer plays. :( I'll wait and see what MODOK can do. I may like him afterwards.

#87
camseyeview said on October 8, 2010 at 5:31 p.m.

is it just me or will modok and arthur be hard to hit due to their size?

i mean granted modok can be easier to hit due to his floatingness

but sitll

love the idea of arthur's fighting moves. still cant wait to get this game

I'm Loving This Game! Woooooo!!

OMG everyone is complaining about M.O.D.O.K just like they did with X-23. And Look At Her Now. She's One Of The Strongest Characters In The Game.

People. Stop Complaining Please, Just Play The Game For What It Is. It's MVC3! Its Gonna Be Awesome!!

#91
camseyeview said on October 8, 2010 at 5:35 p.m.

#94
gammabolt17 said on October 8, 2010 at 5:37 p.m.

For my Capcom team:

Chris/Wesker/Spencer (Maybe Haggar if he's in, but I love Spencer's faux-Scorpion style)

Marvel team:

Hulk/Super Skrull/Iron Man (IM will probably be replaced with future reveals though)

#95
Ex_Ein said on October 8, 2010 at 5:37 p.m.

Spencer is not like scorpion when you consider he zip lines around the screen and when he does the zipline on the character he can pull himself toward them and not the other way around and plus Spencers way cooler

Darts said on October 8, 2010 at 5:38 p.m.

@105
X-23 is a terrible written character, who is in this and other things for male fan service.

M.O.D.O.K is a beloved character in the comic book community, with decades of stories behind him(Come on, he was created by the King himself!). He is here as fan service for actual Comic Book fans.

#99
camseyeview said on October 8, 2010 at 5:39 p.m.

yeah so the scorpion comments need to stop...

plus x-23 is a rather tedious fighter if your fighting against her

shes fast and can chew you away if your not up to speed
