Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Why Frank West was cut, Phoenix Wright considered A short, but informative article was posted by VideoGamer.com this morning explaining why Frank West was cut from Marvel vs. Capcom 3's roster, as explained by Ryota Niitsuma. It reads:
"As for Frank West, he was actually in the process quite deep, and in one of our high quality CG trailers he was actually part of it," Niitsuma told VideoGamer.com at the end of last week. "But we've taken him out, due to the fact that we've foreseen some extra work involved, just from the nature of his moves. We felt we could direct our resources to better use, so we've taken Frank out."

Another Capcom favourite who hasn't made the line-up is plucky lawyer Phoenix Wright. But while Wright may not be naturally suited to the fighting genre, Niitsuma seems happy to consider his future inclusion - provided that MvC3 gains a following.

"Phoenix Wright is obviously a famous franchise - especially in Europe, actually. It would be interesting to see him, although he distinctively lacks the number of moves he might have [in a fighting game]. But if Marvel vs. Capcom 3 does well, he's definitely up on the list as one of the characters to add, given the chance."
So it sounds like Frank West was in the episode 2 trailer, but was cut at some point after wards, and that Phoenix Wright has a shot at being a DLC fighter.
