Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character announcements this week, other stuff Capcom mentioned that new characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be revealed week, as their Europe team left this message via Twitter.

GamesCom begins this week in Cologne. Now doesn't that seem like a good time for some more Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character announcements?!

Also, Capcom's Christian Svensson and Rey Jimenez made some posts on the Unity Boards concerning the characters who have been ruled out and future titles.

Why isn't Capcom listening to fans who want Phoenix Wright and Ghost Rider in MvC3?

Sven: The roster is fairly final at this point and has been for a while. That said, your questions and suggestions may play a role in future decisions.

You guys had complete access to the entire library of Marvel characters, and you left out people like Daredevil and Ghost Rider, that's stupid.

Jimenez: That's quite the assumption there. Capcom did not have complete access to all Marvel characters. Also, and this was probably said before, Marvel has final word on who ends up in the game on the Marvel side.

Do you guys plan on releasing these games? Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Final Fight 4, Street Fighter 5, Street Fighter 3rd Strike HD Remix, Street Fighter X Tekken, Resident Evil 6?

Sven: We've announced MvC3 and SF X Tekken. I can't comment on the others. Beyond that, you'll hear about several new titles before the end of this calendar year and more still at Captivate early next year.

Finally, Yoshinori Ono made a potentially interesting post via Twitter recently, it reads:

How's Yun and Yang coming along for Super Street Fighter 4? ;)

Ono: I'm left speechless...

This could be reading into a simple post WAY too much, but it's possible Ono couldn't say anything more about these characters because they're going to be added to the arcade version of the game.

At the same time, this could be way off track and he's simply not able to comment on this subject for other reasons.
