Looks good, but I'm going to miss the wet paint look of Shuma's old hyper. Glad to see him, though.

I don't think I'm ever going to come around for Jill's design choice. Why in the name of hell did they not go with her brunette look?

Shuma's cool, wonder if he'll be kinda the same as in 2; looking forward to seeing how different Jill's gonna be from MvC2

FroggyMan77 said on February 2, 2011 at 5:10 p.m.

See, here's the irony I've been seeing with many peoples' opinions on several characters.

People complain about Sentinel only getting in BECAUSE he was popular in MvC2.

People complain about Strider and Classic Jill not getting in DESPITE being popular in MvC2.

Make up your damn mind, people.

And then there's the complaints about Shuma getting in because of a stereotype that the Japanese have tentacle fetishes. That's like saying that everybody who likes Haggar only likes him because they have a fetish with overly muscular, mustached men, who always walk around with no shirt. Do you people want to be labeled like that? As people who enjoy oogling at shirtless muscled men?

And correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that Shuma's playstyle was popular among people for being somewhat unique.

#16
cvs said on February 2, 2011 at 5:11 p.m.

@6 He didn't suck in the original marvel super heroes game or marvel super heroes vs street fighter.

With the RE5 Jill Valentine, her play-style might be different than her MvC2 predecessor.

@18
When you say people complain, you mean two guys on the internet right? Seriously I think the vast majority of us, are excited for the inclusion of these two characters. People only ever talk about all the hate a character gets because they only see the negative comments. I can count like 7 positive comments out of the 22 comments listed so far, and you don't notice them.

#23
Otter_of_Death said on February 2, 2011 at 5:23 p.m.

@mark_morrison

In all seriousness, most of us would have rather had Venom. I'm not even worried they'd give us a post-Brock version, cause I can't see that happening. Everyone who hears Venom immediately thinks of Eddie Brock the Lethal Protector, and that's who the people want. I have no doubt that's the version they would have used. My only complaint about Venom in MvsC was that they didn't capitalize on his Spiderman-esque abilities.

But Marvel Super Heroes fans will be the first to tell you that Shuma is insane fun to play with and his design is solid. Sure, I would have wanted other characters, but that's true of Sentinel, She-Hulk, and Felicia. I'm not going to let that bitterness overshadow my love for Shuma.

Or any tentacles for that matter.

#24
Osbjorn said on February 2, 2011 at 5:24 p.m.

On a merry note, this roster has exceeded my expectations, I beats the mvc2 roster by a long shot, so much variety, so much randomness, so much modok! The only thing i'am sad about is the exclusion of frank west but we are probably going to get him as dlc good times!

#25
WillHadoForFood said on February 2, 2011 at 5:24 p.m.

Never liked Shuma-Gorath, but I love me some Jill. Nice to see she has her RE5 Necksnap in aswell. I am not a hater of old-school Jill or Nina Jill-iams. She is my favorite character in the Resident Evil series and I'm just glad we get some version of her. Hope we get some vids soon!

#26
cvs said on February 2, 2011 at 5:25 p.m.

@29 Well,you asked when's the last time i saw him,and that is the last time i saw him, in 2010,which is recent.Thanos would be cool also for this game btw.

#27
NWAndroid said on February 2, 2011 at 5:29 p.m.

@mark
Neither the upcoming nor the previous Venom are the same as the one from MvC2. Also, even with people in Marvel supposedly being down with Shuma's inclusion, someone in that company let Capcom do it. Also this isn't MvC2, so he's not going to be a straight rehash.

On another Venom/character related note, I kind of wish they would add the upcoming Venom. It's like the birth of Captain America except instead of a normal soldier Flash is black ops, and instead of a serum it's the venom symbiote. Good stuff.

#28
Kurow said on February 2, 2011 at 5:29 p.m.

If someone already have access to Jill and Shuma that only means that they are on the disc and Capcom is going to be a bitch with priced unlock keys again...

#29
WillHadoForFood said on February 2, 2011 at 5:31 p.m.

@34 I'm with you. I'm picturing Cammy, with some gunplay (skorpions and sniper rifle), and a Sonson-like wall-run. We'll soon find out though.

I wonder if she will have summoning at all like the exicutioner manjini in the comic?

WillHadoForFood said on February 2, 2011 at 5:37 p.m.

@40 I doubt it, but that would be awesome! Really curious as to what her specials and hypers could be. One will involve guns, but in an exaggerated way. As for the others? I'm hoping for some really unique ones. Summoning of the Executioner would be sweet.

#37
DeathQuote44 said on February 2, 2011 at 5:39 p.m.

This is literally torure, considering the fact that my pre-order was just canceled. Like, TODAY! I'll still get it when it comes out though, not really that big of a deal.

#38
Osbjorn said on February 2, 2011 at 5:41 p.m.

@45
He's pretty cool but yes your probably right. In an interview nitsuma said shuma gorath was a must and that makes me question a great many things about life

#39
NWAndroid said on February 2, 2011 at 5:41 p.m.

@36
Or Capcom gave them those images and it had nothing to do with unlocking from the disc. Not that it matters, on-disc locked content has been explained, detailed, and rationalized by the gaming industry tons of times, including Capcom. Would you rather have to wait longer for a large download and pretend like they didn't finish this content months ago, or have a speedy download and accept the fact that regardless of how they give it to you this stuff was completed months ago?

#40
ajch22 said on February 2, 2011 at 5:41 p.m.

@18

Sentinel is not popular, he is broken, that's why he was used in all tournaments, it had nothing to do with his popularity (which he lacks).

Shuma is not really popular, I really believe that I could count with one hand the people that wanted him in, but he still got in, but for some reason, it doesn't anger me.

As for classic Jill and Strider, they were both good characters AND were popular in that game, that's the reason people want them back.

#41
J said on February 2, 2011 at 5:43 p.m.

The characters are not on the disc, the person who first showed that Galactus bossfight looked at the files on the disc and there were only very small placeholder files for Shuma and Jill, i.e. not the actual characters themselves.

#42
Shareware said on February 2, 2011 at 5:44 p.m.

I've been picking up Shuma a bit more in MVC2 and I gotta say...

I like him. He could be a really unique character in this.

You don't like him, that's your biz, but he's been kind of a favorite villain of mine for a bit and hasn't seen enough spotlight. His inclusion (even though Capcom pushed for it) makes me think he might go back to his old awesome ways soon.

He was one of Doctor Strange's most powerful enemies (motherf***er made a VOODOO DOLL OF EARTH), and he deserves a comeback. This might be a sign of one.

#43
Osbjorn said on February 2, 2011 at 5:46 p.m.

@willhadoforfood
You thinking cammy mixed with deadpool? She will definatly have a quick 8 way air dash, but no teleport. She will probebly fire guns straight and at an angle. Let's think hypers.
1.Deadpool/dante gun hyper
2.Command grab that looks like cammy's ultra 2 but it's a grab
3. Level 3 Summons executor manjini and finishes it off with a
rocket launcher(can be either a chainsaw or excecutor manjini or big bug thing) That would be so old school!

#44
Super_Shoto_Fighter_4 said on February 2, 2011 at 5:48 p.m.

I'm happy with the new Jill and Shuma being in the game. Jill looks more up to date with the times. I'm a huge Resident Evil 1 fan but that game is older than MvC2 itself.

Osbjorn said on February 2, 2011 at 5:51 p.m.

@gambit is my favorite x men character next to wolverine. But i can see why marvel would want to promote other characters, frankly it was in neither of capcom's or marvel's best intrest to promote gambit or cyclops. Plus there is a lot of xmen characters in the game already. Also you gotta remember fan demand is a third of what decides the character roster according to seth anyway. It will effect dlc you know that

Shuma Gorath was included because he must be some kind of capcom inside joke character. You got a admit he is kind of hilarious looking for a world threat.

#52
WillHadoForFood said on February 2, 2011 at 6:01 p.m.

@53 Cammy and Deadpool's illegitimate daughter? Yep, I could see that. As far as the hypers go, sounds good to me? The guns hyper is all, but guaranteed, Cammy CQC ultra is my favorite ultra animation in SSFIV (I love when Cammy breaks your neck and says, "To late!", would be a great shoutout to MvC2 Jill's Nemesis summon. I am seeing something in her arsenal that involves a sniper rifle and flash grenades too since those seemed preferences in her arsenal in RE5. Maybe she'll even have a herb (healing) assist like in MvC2?

#53
Cortez said on February 2, 2011 at 6:05 p.m.

@Otter_Of_Death

It should be obvious. They went with their more recent looks and for Jill it's her RE5 look.

Also, her new move set is based on her RE5 version.

Chris and Wesker have their RE5 looks too.

#54
Cortez said on February 2, 2011 at 6:08 p.m.

@Osbjorn

Shuma is there because he's popular in japan.

He's also extremely powerful.

#55
Osbjorn said on February 2, 2011 at 6:08 p.m.

@63
Herb assist? I think it needs an upgrade to make it more functionable it kind of sucked in marvel 2. If it healed a bit more then it would be invaluable.
@62
Dude I think it might be just speculation
It's a guy on neogaf quoting a friend of his who got the information from a friend of his. But even so it is the
most sound speculation i have ever heard in my life cause it just makes so much sense

#56
Osbjorn said on February 2, 2011 at 6:10 p.m.

Is he really popular in japan? man they like the most random stuff

#57
Otter_of_Death said on February 2, 2011 at 6:11 p.m.

@ Cortez

That's not really a good excuse. The fans clearly wanted a definitive version of Jill, and it's not even a consistency issue. In the hands of a good writer, they could have explained her recovered appearance. Buy some hair dye and your practically done.

#58
Nep said on February 2, 2011 at 6:11 p.m.

Awesome, I cannot wait to see Shuma in action. Sure his background sucks and he's a minor Dr. Strange character, but he's easily one of Capcom's MvC2 favorites and it's nice to see him back.

Chaos dimension looking as awesome as ever.

#59
cordova said on February 2, 2011 at 6:12 p.m.

@otter of death
It's just for the sake of keeping everybody in the RE5 timezone. But yeah with REvaltions coming out they should have gone with the look from that game

#61
Utils said on February 2, 2011 at 6:14 p.m.

Arturo (Sabin) would rack up so many wins in MvS with a team of Shuma and Green Dan. He'd be over 20 wins with that team. It was disgusting. Just to mess with people.

Dan Hibiki and Shuma Gorath.

Arturo if you're reading this I dare you to main Shuma in your first tourney!

#63
Cortez said on February 2, 2011 at 6:15 p.m.

@ajch22

Wrong there kiddo, Sentinel is popular with the MvC2 competitive players, that's why he's back.

Shuma is a fan favorite of the games too and he's popular in Japan.

As for Strider, he hasn't been in a game in years and Dante pretty much replaced him anyway.

#64
WillHadoForFood said on February 2, 2011 at 6:16 p.m.

I'm glad Shuma fans got him in. I really would have prefered to have seen Doctor Strange make it in besides him. Why is it the good doctor gets no love? Just for fun how many people would have prefered to seen him than Shuma?

#65
Cortez said on February 2, 2011 at 6:19 p.m.

@WillHadoForFood

Because Gorath is more visually unique and he's veteran of the series.

Strange isn't good at physical combat anyway.

#66
Osbjorn said on February 2, 2011 at 6:21 p.m.

@75
Doctor Strange would provide some intresting options but i'm going to have to go with shuma gorath for this one just because shuma is a non humaniod character so it makes the cast more diverse and weird looking. Nonetheless dr strange would have some intresting tricks and would make a great addition to the roster

#67
Shareware said on February 2, 2011 at 6:23 p.m.

I've seen the majority of your posts.

If someone gave you a $70,000 dollar car for free you'd sh!t on it and find some way to complain about how much they suck.

I'm sorry that the fact I disagree with you insults you so much. I didn't think you cared about me. It's touching, but you've gotta move on and find other people, hun.

Plenty of fish in the sea.

#68
Cortez said on February 2, 2011 at 6:24 p.m.

@Osbjorn

Except revelations didn't exist when this game started development.

So their RE5 looks was the logical choice. Especially since Wesker is in the roster.

#69

#70
WillHadoForFood said on February 2, 2011 at 6:26 p.m.

@76 I understand Shuma is a veteran, but Doctor Strange could have had unique gameplay and had alot of visually stunning moves with his spells just like Shuma. I know Shuma is big in Japan (at least as far as Marvel characters go), but was he ever that popular in America. He sucked in MvC2 and I don't know alot, if anyone, who likes him 'cus of the comics. On top of that it would have been nice to see him in since Dormammu is in aswell.

#71
Otter_of_Death said on February 2, 2011 at 6:28 p.m.

Remember in the flashback in RE5? Before Jill fell into the Ocean? Wesker and Chris both looked as they do in MvsC3. There's no reason in the world they couldn't have modeled this game after that part of the timeline.

#72
Utils said on February 2, 2011 at 6:29 p.m.

@73

You don't know Arturo? He goes by Sabin. Anyway, that's what he was do. He'd pick percieved low tiers and rack sup high wins. I think Wong was with us at the time, I don't remember. Maybe it was some other Asian guy, I dunno. And they'd take turns with that and just rack up wins.

Arturo LOVED doing that. Pick low tiers and rack wins all day. And that was one of his favorites: Green Dan and Shuma Gorath. Just ask him about playing near Busy Bee mall. This wasn't at Chinatown. It was back in highschool days.

#73
Cortez said on February 2, 2011 at 6:30 p.m.

@cordova

Carnage sucks and he's just a Venom knock off.

Might as well have Venom or better yet, Green Goblin who's Spidey's archnemesis.

Even Sandman would be a better choice than Carnage.

#74

Every now and then he'd hold the start button to have Dan explode and give the other guy a fighting chance. That was just mean.

@Otter_Of_Death

Aside from the fact that's a minor part in the game? Fact is, with Wesker and Chris going with their RE5 looks, it made sense Jill would too to match.

They're remaking her moves anyway.

@81

He does have a following in the US because of his appearances in Marvel Superheroes, MSH vs. SF and even MvC2.

Hell, Shuma was the one that killed Strange's master and He recently appeared again in the comics.

Gorath also has the advantage of being a non-humanoid.

Besides, Gorath is DLC.

#79
cvs said on February 2, 2011 at 6:44 p.m.

@89 True,which means,if you don't like him,then don't buy the character.

#80
WillHadoForFood said on February 2, 2011 at 6:49 p.m.

@89 and 90

I'll still buy him with Jill when they are released (have to since Collector's was sold out and had to preorder Standard). I'm just saying I don't like his playstyle, character, etc. I can't see myself getting into him even if he is tweeked. We're just going in circles with this discussion though, so to each their own.

#81
Otter_of_Death said on February 2, 2011 at 6:51 p.m.

@ Cortez

Your shifting the fence. The argument wasn't "which version of Jill was got more screentime," the argument was whether there exists a more iconic version of Jill that is compatible with the RE5 aesthetic. Not only does such a version exist, but she's on the cover art of RE5 Gold. That says something right there about what the fans want.

Again: there was no reason in the world they were tied to this crappier version of Jill, new moves or not.

I've been playing Shuma-Gorath since I was a wee little lad at the arcade in MvSF back when there were Arcades in every state. And I actually did good with him! He's a definat get in about a year or so for me... Hate being poor. Can't get a Job because, hmm, Band takes up a LOT of time...

BTW 100 and 101 comment 'tis mine.

101 be on Jill. I'm glad Jill is getting a remake, mostly because that means that Frank/Chuck have room to get in a long a ways later on in the years! ^__^ Wewt! And, Jill looks to be a mixture of Cammy, Deadpool, Cable, Jill, Chris, and Psylocke...

Looking at her grab on Iron Man, it looks like she'll have some of Cammy's Moves Implemented on her.

Probably a regular grab.
