Elektra stage in Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Akuma cameo

The Hand's Hideout stage for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was revealed today with the announcement of Storm and C. Viper. This area has long been associated with Elektra from Marvel comics, although it has more remote ties to Psylocke and Wolverine as well.

The ninjas dressed in red can often be seen with Elektra in various artwork though, and you can see them scattered about the newest stage as well. Here's a visual.

Also, PaX, a very eagle-eyed reader, spotted Akuma on the new stage as well, and was kind enough to build this graphic.

Ryota Niitsuma, Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, had said previously that each of the stages were tied to at least one of the characters in game, and it seems like Elektra would be a strong consideration here because of this new background.

Akuma's appearance could simply be a homage to him, as this is a Capcom fighting game afterall, or of course it could mean something more...
