Updated: Niitsuma - Jin Saotome and Captain Commando not considered, Blade was a candidate for MvC3, Dr. Octopus before Green Goblin Ryota Niitsuma was recently talking to his fans on Twitter where he discussed watching the Avengers and being inspired by Loki's presentation. Here are some of his thoughts. Hit the jump to see the whole conversation.

Niitsuma: After the release of Avengers [in Japan], I have been hearing many recommendations... including Loki. I wonder how Loki would function in a fighting game...

Fujixgame: I really wanted to see Loki in fighting game... is what I say, but he would have a difficult syle [to implement]. I selfishly ask for Blade instead!

Niitsuma: Blade was considered for MvC3. We had no objections to his style implementation in a fighting game, but we were trying to avoid a glut of sword characters in the game.

9q_: What about the Green Goblin?

Niitsuma: We were trying to avoid the color green.... just kidding. Elements involving the Spider-man universe are delicate, and Dr. Octopus was considered before Green Goblin was.

9q_: Somehow I can understand the use of the word "delicate" to describe the Spider-man universe... Thanks for holding this interesting discussion!

Niitsuma: No problem, glad to be of assistance to various requests.

MAMESpider: Considering the subject of movies, Lizard was never considered as a candidate???

Niitsuma: Hm, that idea wasn't considered very much. When we considered pushing universes, it was decided that "The Avengers" would get a stronger push than the Spider-man universe.

senzu_1048596: Jin Saotome and Captain Commando... were these two characters ever considered as candidates for MvC3 or UMvC3?

Niitsuma: Sorry, they were not considered. We wanted to focus more on new choices in the roster.

It is possible Niitsuma will talk more later, but it looks like this is the closest we will get to knowing about behind the scenes discussion regarding character inclusion in MvC3.
