Updated: Hsien-Ko, Sentinel in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 26, 2011 at 4:35 p.m. PST
Even more updates: Hsien-Ko, from Darkstalkers, appears on the character select screen of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and there's another image of her in the timeline. Also, a higher quality image of Sentinel in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was added into this story from the same German magazine, ConsolPLUS. And there's a blurry shot of Galactus below as well.



Click images for larger versions

For those of you with doubts still, there's also this video up on YouTube by KingLofiOne showing the Sentinel image in a magazine, this clip also has the character select screen image of Hsien-Ko, but it's really blurry.

Man, I wanna make "not going to miss him comment."

It looks legit, but the size seems a bit off.

WHY THA HECK CAPCOM KEEP CREATING ALOTS OF NEW CARACTERS IF THEY BRING BACK SENTINEL, STORM AND MAGNETO? seriously , for me, that was HUGE fail.

It says "Arthur" instead os "Sentinel" on the Health bar. what's THAT all about...

icejohn said on January 26, 2011 at 9:39 a.m.

its real and if its not, does it mattter? we know hes or it is in, just show em already capcom before all the leaks kill the hype

#16
Kapwan said on January 26, 2011 at 9:39 a.m.

I think this is fake, Arthur is clipping through the sentinels leg. I've never seen that happen with any of the assists before. If it is real, then sadface because I didn't want Sentinel coming back to Mahvel, unless he was an unplayable boss character or something.

#17
Otter_of_Death said on January 26, 2011 at 9:39 a.m.

@ snoooootch

Being that Arthur is on screen at the same time (and is merging into Sentinel's leg), it would appear Sentinel is acting as an assist in the pic.

#18
Shareware said on January 26, 2011 at 9:39 a.m.

Meh, who cares. I HIGHLY doubt that they left Sentinel HALF as broken this time around, and the rest of the cast is great.

Can't wait to see more Mags Storm Sent online now, because anyone picking them thinking "HURR I'LL PICK DA BROKEN TEAM EASY VICTORY" is gonna get broke.

#19
AXel_KL said on January 26, 2011 at 9:40 a.m.

Oh come on!If the guy would take a picture of the character wouldn't he be more careful so that the name of the character on the lifebar is visible?Jesus...
The rest looks really legit tough

well first off the size is way to big...no one is that big in the roster and two, his body is going through Arthur's body, they would never allow that. i mean i know you can get on the other side of the screen, but i think its fake.

i mean i dont mind if he is in the game, but i doubt that image is real. there are just alot of things off on it

#22
DarkCyclone said on January 26, 2011 at 9:41 a.m.

Anyone who's denying sentinel's inclusion now is just a fool. Plain and simple

#23
ChunLiSexBeast said on January 26, 2011 at 9:41 a.m.

They were both photoshopped.

No one scene the John Cena photoshopped picture on Capcom-Unity?

Impressively done, made me think he was actually in.

#24
Hiakimaru said on January 26, 2011 at 9:42 a.m.

@ Snoooootch

But sentinel could be assisting, and if you look at his feet, there is arthur.

#25
ShaftyCakes said on January 26, 2011 at 9:42 a.m.

It's fake. Look at the lack of portraits on the right side of the screen.

I made an entire thread in the forum section (in the MvC sub-section) pretty much prooving it's fake.

He would've been cool but I think Capcom replaced him with Modok...

#26
Shareware said on January 26, 2011 at 9:43 a.m.

@22

The clipping would be ass hard to fake compared to a paste-on, and Sent has ALWAYS been the biggest.

The glare blocking the name is just for hype.

#27
Troppop said on January 26, 2011 at 9:45 a.m.

@14

IF (note "IF") it were to be real, he may not neccessarily be played and have the same abilities that he had in MvC2.

I'm not that into MvC2, so what exactly made him so good in MvC2? Lots of infinities? Good pokes, zoning?

Either way, I've always hated the good ol' MSS combo, let's hope this game is more balanced and sincere apart from MvC2.

I think it's legit. And Lupinko once again may have proved to be true. A very dull scan though. And dang! I can't see the names on the right side because of the light reflection.

#30
frankegg99 said on January 26, 2011 at 9:45 a.m.

@camseyeview
i agree capcom and marvel would not let anything like that happen,this is fake...and the drones arent even the same as eachother..and the one closest to sent..isnt even fully visible i mean it looks good..but totally fake and if this is real well then f@#k mvc3 its just a flashy mvc2 which would kinda suck cause it looked to good

#31
Oroku_Saki said on January 26, 2011 at 9:46 a.m.

If he is in the game, I'm cool with that. If he isn't I'm still cool with it. Game will be here in a few days anyway, and I'll be able to play to my heart's content.

Ksizzle said on January 26, 2011 at 9:47 a.m.

Why is sentinel merging with arhur? If you look at any mvc3 clip, assist characters are always in the background.

also, look at the combo count for sentinels ground assist, looks a bit small. theyre usually huge.

and the convenient glare on the right side...lol

i'll wait for a confirm.

@28

Yeah, i'm hoping he isnt like in MvC2 but still, like in Street Fighter, lots of poeople uses Ryu,Ken,Akuma, in MvC3, as you said IF (note the "IF" :D) sentinel is in, lots of people will be using Sentinel,Storm,Magneto.

#38
CrimsonClaw said on January 26, 2011 at 9:50 a.m.

I don't care if he's in, I just hope he's balanced! I liked MvC2, it's awesome to play and even more awesome to watch but when you look at the massive character select screen and only about 2% of characters and viable you know something is wrong. Please Capcom, don't make the same mistake, give us a game that answers to longtime fans and beginners alike because NEWSFLASH: Some people actually like playing as more than 5 characters.

#39
Icytor said on January 26, 2011 at 9:50 a.m.

"sighs" MvC2.5, now with more chesse and Mags/Storm/Sent teams. Buy now and you'll get 3 characters that are almost as good as the team above, but will still never beat them.

#40

OMG IF THIS IS REAL I'M NEVER going to pass on this game for any reason.

Hiakimaru said on January 26, 2011 at 9:51 a.m.

Some people might be think, "Hes not in cuz i was already said hes not going to appear" but remember in the begining, "No Akuma,Ken" what we got with TaskMaster?? no comments.

#42
Amputechture said on January 26, 2011 at 9:52 a.m.

Calling BS on this since Arthur is clipping through Sentinel and you can conveniently not see Sentinel's name (not even make out a last letter like you can for MODOK at the bottom) Now I'm not saying Sentinel's not in, just this particular "scan" is.

#43
Otter_of_Death said on January 26, 2011 at 9:53 a.m.

@Hiakimaru

For the record, Capcom never said the other shotos weren't in the same. He merely stated that there differences are not as pronounced in crossover games.

Nyoronoru said on January 26, 2011 at 9:54 a.m.

It is BECAUSE Arthur is clipping through Sentinel that makes it legit. That's what happens when you call an assist and walk through them.

Something like that would take an enormous amount of time and skill to fake.

#47
Shareware said on January 26, 2011 at 9:55 a.m.

@48

That's what I'm sayin'.

Could still be fake, has a lot working against it, but for now I think it's real.

#48
ShaftyCakes said on January 26, 2011 at 9:57 a.m.

I just find it so funny that people are complaining about Storm, Mag and Sent being back. Capcom obviously took the time now to balance them out so it won't be just similar teams the entire time.

#49
DarkCyclone said on January 26, 2011 at 9:58 a.m.

lol it's Sentinel you idiots. What kind of shopper would be bothered to add a clipping glitch in the graphics where he's layered through Arthur. It's designed too beautifully to be a fake

IT IS SENTINEL YOU IDIOTS

halo said on January 26, 2011 at 10:01 a.m.

I don't mind Sentinel at all, i find it silly to argue that such characters are overpowered in a game of Marvel Vs Capcom! THAT is the reason why casuals play the game and unless you haven't noticed that's what this series is mostly about - casual fighting with overpowered characters which take the entire screen! It's part of its charm and also a deliberate approach from Capcom since the first X-MEN vs Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes so get used to it

It's real everyone, stop denying whats soon to be reality. There were a lot of you who said that the Akuma Leak was a fake and photoshop but yet he was announce so after the picture was shown. I really wanted another character besides Sentinel and Lei Lei but owell can't wait to pick up my collectors edition of the game at launch.

#60
boobee_cakes said on January 26, 2011 at 10:07 a.m.

If this was shopped, then color me impressed, but this looks legit to me. It's pretty hard to fake clipping to that detail, and they got it right.

Nothing seems off to me. Arthur is in play, he called Senti to assist. The glare was just unfortunately, an excuse for deniers. The clipping happened because he's an assist, and he's a pretty big character, and Arthur is a tiny one.

Sturmgeist13 said on January 26, 2011 at 10:09 a.m.

The good thing is that neither Magnet nor Storm seam nowhere near as broken as in MvC2 so I doubt Sentinel will be any different. I'm pretty sure that someone else in the roster will be better than at least one of them.

Also thank you Niitsuma for making this game happen but, you're a damn liar, "No Jean Grey/Phoenix", "There will be no more Darkstalkers characters other than Morrigan & Felicia", "The are some characters that Marvel didn't let us use such as Juggernaut & Sentinel". Looks like Ono's troll virus is spreading the Capcom producers, I don't care as long as I get my MvC3!

Yay sent is back in hahaha now i can beat up on him and practice combos on him as well but yeah anyone saying this aint real is in serious denial hahaha the texture is just perfect for the game. Anyways I don't think that the magneto and storm and sentinel teams are gonna be that intense like they were in mvc2 I know they will be massively toned down so fear not everybody we can get revenge on those people now hahaha

#66
Cammystrike said on January 26, 2011 at 10:12 a.m.

@24 That Cena one isn't comparable in the slightest to this. For the simple fact that the person that photoshopped the Cena picture took an in game model of Cena from that new wrestling game that's coming out and added a bit of shadow to it. Simple enough right, but with Sentinel there's never been a 3d render of him done before so he would have nothing to edit to make a fake. The guy would have had to create a 3d render of Sentinel himself, and if he's capable of that he'd probably be putting his talents to use rather then trolling people online with them.

You already saw what happens when someone tries to re-skin a 3d model (Green Goblin) or edit a sprite to fit the MvC3 art style (Hsien-ko). They both came out horrible. In other words this is legit. This is the whole Akuma leak all over again, people swore it was fake, but what happened? Besides what does it matter anyway considering we already know Sentinel and Hsien-ko are in the game anyway?

#67
EX_Machina said on January 26, 2011 at 10:17 a.m.

Why is he even in this game? He's the least interesting and least relevant Marvel Character ever created. I'd rather have 10 more Shoto Clones than this dull insipid robot with no personality...

#68
Vampireplatypus said on January 26, 2011 at 10:17 a.m.

The only thing that makes me second guess this is that I remember reading in an interview somewhere that they had a huge problem balancing hitboxes. The example they gave was Hulk and Amaterasu and how hard it was because hulk is so big compared to her. And well....that Sentinel is reallllllly big.

The clipping proves that it is real! The Sentinel model is pretty large. It would be pretty weird if there wasn't any clipping. Also it would be pretty hard to shoop that anyway.
Now all thats left is Hsien-ko

@66 How is he a liar or even trolling, its like telling or founding out someone you have a surprise for them but you can't expose it until the right time, but the person who the surprise is for, keep asking what kind of surprise it is by asking numerous questions. If the person keep asking questions and finally figured out what the surprise is, the person that has the surprise is going to deny it and say no because of whatever particular reason it may be. In order to through the person off is by making statements or rewording to convince you that its not the surprise that you thought it was.

1)There is no deadlocked proof that this is real.

2) You know it will be hilarious when so called fans of Sentinel get their asses obliterated from trying the same sh!t as in MVC2.

3) Lupinko - 1, Capcom - 1,000,000

Who cares?

I doubt this is fake...the leaked list we saw a long time ago got most of the characters right anyway, so I wouldn't be surprised if I see mr fantastic, elektra, emma frost, juggernaught, franke west, and hsien ko. (supposed remaining characters in the leaked list)

I know Frank West has been disconfirmed a million times, but if Sentinel is true, then why should we believe in Capcom anymore?

#91
lmnotreal said on January 26, 2011 at 10:33 a.m.

It's not real you idiots look at the damn names on the screen, i don't think sentinels name is iron man or arthur, not to mention it definitely not an assist because there's no other visible characters. Fail editing is fail.

#92

I found it on the net.

#93
Bibuki said on January 26, 2011 at 10:34 a.m.

Oh god no. Why intentionally add broken characters? I mean they could balance him since it's a new game, but really he'll most likely do insane chip, like storm. And it's not like he's an interesting character with a personality. That's by far the lamest addition to the game. Actually the only lame addition in my opinion, as long as Storm and Phoenix are balanced.

It's almost as if Capcom always has to take a few irrational decisions to make sure their games are not perfect.

#94
