    Give us Squirrel Girl instead of this MCU garbage.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    That’s a pretty shit roster.

  • NukeA6

    So Capcom wants fans to pay $30+ for characters that should have been in the game in the first place but then offers a roster which looks like it’s a heavily cut version of what UMvC3 offered with but with no X-Men, Deadpool (Marvel’s most popular character next to Spider-Man), Dr. Doom, or any other Street Fighters besides the same two we’ve seen over and over? I thought Capcom couldn’t fuck up any more than they already did these past few years. I should have seen this coming.

    And why does Ghost n’ Goblins have more reps than Mega Man does (not including DLC)? Did they think people would be more happy with Firebrand instead of Zero?

  • Captain Vidya

    Holy shit, that roster.
    >no X-men
    >no Phoenix Wright
    >no Haggar
    >no Joe
    >no Deadpool
    >how the fuck are they gonna do a hunter?
    >filled with MCU crap
    >Sigma as DLC

  • ActivistZero

    i’m willing to be more lenient on the Marvel choices since that maybe a mandate enforced by Marvel themselves, but there is no excuse for the Capcom side

  • Magnifico Ginormous

    Fuck Disney and fuck cinematic universes cancer!

  • Vcom7418

    No Deadpool or Wright = No buy

  • 波大大閪細細

    Loll holy shit this is gonna flop even harder than SFV

  • SinkingSage

    No Jill, no buy.
    Bonus points for Morrigan though.

  • Matz

    Looking at this it seems that this game will end up as another Street Fighter V, an incomplete mess of game lacking even basic content for a Fighting Game and with a bunch of cut content sold as DLC

    Marvel’s roster is not a big surprise to me, they want to force their Cinematic Universe bullshit in whatever they can and they don’t care if they have to kill two of their biggest and historic franchises (X-Men and Fantastic 4) to do it, but Capcom’s side is a disaster:
    -No DMC characters
    -No Phoenix Wright
    -No Haggar or a Grappler like Zangief or Alex
    -We still have Chris Redfield and his Super Saiyan Powers as the only RE rep
    -No Joe
    -No Amaterasu
    -No Captain Commando
    -No Jin

    I expect to see at least 3 of those characters I mentioned as DLC, holding back some popular characters as DLC is a tactic that Capcom is capable of doing

  • malbhet

    I promise that the Monster Hunter will be A hunter in the traditional rathalos armor, and we all know that means the favored variant colors aside from traditional red will be blue and silver. I swear to god that if his/her move sets doesn’t involve a palicoe running onto the stage to lay traps and barrel bombing the opponents then I’m considering this character to be a slap in the face to all MH fans O_O

  • CrimsonColossus

    WOW. If this leak is true then that’s really bad.
    I didn’t think it was possible for the roster to become even more watered down than MvC3, but Crapcom finds a way.
    I mean, if you’re gonna recycle so many characters from 3 then at least recycle all of them. It’d be better than this.

  • Bigfatdane

    Article image features Megaman X, Megaman X is no where to be found in the character list… BS advertisement for clicks.

  • NukeA6

    You missed ‘X’ on the bottom of Capcom’s list.

  • Dom The Elegy

    Last time I checked Dante was from DMC but the roster is a complete trainwreck if this leak is accurate.

  • Dom The Elegy

    Guess they want us to play BlazBlue instead.

  • Dom The Elegy

    Pretty much everyone hates SFV now because of the shit launch, dumbing down of the game and lack of proper support, they announce a different game that actually gets people excited and /this/ is what they decided on for a roster?

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cef134e25a1b98c122b3e52aff96ce22fd40dc4b99903e172d6ef6e40073030e.png

  • Bigfatdane

    Well fuck I did miss it… sorry about that.
    How could I ever oversee a single character like that.

  • Ephrain Estrella

    Monster Hunter is actually the one I’m most excited to see. So much potential in how they’ll end up playing. Could use different weapons for different attacks like Taskmaster, could switch between weapons like Amaterasu, could send smaller monsters( velociprey, vespoids, etc.) like MvC2 Jill, could utilize traps and flashbombs, support could heal with a potion or gain meter with steaks. Can’t wait to see what they’ll do with ’em.

  • Scorching Sirius

    No Amy? :(

  • Mr0303

    If true this shapes up to be another anaemic release from Crapcom with some fan favourites locked behind DLC.

  • sdrawkcab gnitirw

    I would say this was a nice try
    But it wasnt nice
    And they didnt try
    Fuck the MCU and their watered down bullshit

  • sdrawkcab gnitirw
  • sdrawkcab gnitirw

    Oh believe me, you do NOT want Squirrel Girl, at least not the one we have now.

  • sdrawkcab gnitirw

    We havent even had a proper ghosts and goblin games in years
    And these guys wont even acknowledge Maximo,which was great
    I dont get it

  • FrankieL

    Zero X-Men/Deadpool = They done fucked up.

  • nine_ball
  • Personaknight

    Well there goes my hope of seeing Gene from God Hand in a fighting game if even the Okami couldn’t make it back in.

  • Personaknight

    Appealing to the really hardcore Gargoyle quest fans.

  • Personaknight

    The cast may be around the same size, but atleast they will actually release it with arcade and story mode along with whatever the infinity stones offer. That’s already more content than SFV though not by much.

  • Just Some Guy
  • Kiryu

    MCU is one of the biggest abominations.Stopped caring about Marvel a while ago.

  • Dewey Defeats Truman

    A MvC game with no X-Men/Doctor Doom is not a MvC worth playing.

  • Rough

    Is it me or am I seeing a sad and awful trend of Capcom reducing rosters each new game? UMvC3 had around 48 characters while this barely reaches 30. It sucks, but if what people say is true about them treating MvCI as a reboot of MvC1, then quantity-wise it’s sort of an “upgrade.”

    Despite that, this roster sucks donkey dicks if it’s true. Adding Monster Hunter to the CC roster doesn’t even cover how gimped it is, and Marvel side is basically MCU. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/657cd88f034cfda1ccbb4b3d9a2a9b08e0638905ebc6ee3bae52be554be4ddf1.jpg

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    That has got to be the shittiest lineup I’ve ever seen for a fighter.

  • Ephrain Estrella

    The Palicoes could be Capcom’s answer to Rocket Raccon. Traps, Felyne support, stunning weapons vs throwable slashing weapons, Rath-of-Meow tank for a super, hyper mode for another….
    Only problem would be it might be to similar to other character’s attacks.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Doesn’t even have any characters with a cult following; just babbies first waifus, the most popular characters, and shit that are just recent enough. Marvel doesn’t even have any of my favorite characters and are just memes, popularity, and advertisement.

  • Captain Vidya

    The only ones with a cult following are, arguably, Arthur/Firebrand and Jedah. Everyone in Marvel is MCU.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    “would be more happy with Firebrand instead of Zero”
    Fuck Zero. If they were gonna add any other Megaman characters I’d rather have anyone else.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    The actual big sign this is bullshit is that there’s not much of an advertisement for Street Fighter V through having one of its new characters in the main roster.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Too late, you jinxed yourself into NuSquirrel Girl; coulda had this:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7d30e3074b8baa22f076ad5cc427a8e51a9c31a304df4a481eea9ffe7a238fa9.jpg

  • OldPalpy

    So Disney threw their weight around here because of their immense butthurt over the movie rights of X-Men and Fantastic Four but for some reason they won’t do the same to Marvel Heroes and Legends, I can’t warp my head around that inconsistently unless the people behind those pushed back to get those characters allowed meanwhile Capcom is more than happy to behind over backwards for a throbbing dose of MCU bullshit.

  • NukeA6

    I agree but it’s weird with Capcom being really lazy, they chose the least popular character.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Marvel will only allow it if they’re the only ones profiting off of it.

  • NukeA6

    Marvel Heroes was released before they went completely SJW so the X-Men rights tantrums didn’t really happen yet. That’s why Wolverine and the other mutants are in the game.

  • RichardGristle

    I don’t give a shit about Marvel, but that Capcom side is just BAD.

  • OldPalpy

    That does sound about right, that game was release a year before the Days of Future Past movie which did extremely well and probably made Marvel/Disney very salty. It will be interesting to see what they might do to Spider-Man if Sony decides not to renew their partnership, feels like this would produce an entire planet of salt

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    They can’t do shit to Spiderman, he’s their biggest seller.

  • OldPalpy

    For a second I thought that was what the comic looked like now but nope it’s just cute variant cover to trick into you buying Tumblr art garbage https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fe09db84093aec5b23cd2ddce2863e90a2d6b9feff98e11edcc96e22c6a060f5.jpg
    Why is one of the core pillar of Tumblr art ugly noses?

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    No Zero or Wolverine? Fuck off.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Because Tumbler never put in the full effort needed to learn how to draw so they use mirrors and replicate what they see before putting a fuck ton of blush on it. The fact that Marvel kept the Nu shit out of this is the only good thing about it.
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f4a5e0c36d71cc50cbf60f7897eeeaa6aef4421e2018defe0cf26e4ff39cf051.jpg

  • OldPalpy

    True but still it might happen if the fallout is big enough, Marvel wants and needs Spider-Man as the years they have left with their original movie cast is numbered, if they get that ball taken away from them again they’ll throw a giant tantrum.

  • OldPalpy

    They also probably want to make everyone look ugly as shit because that’s so progressive but can’t think of any way to do it with their infantile art which they pray gets seen as being stylistic.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    No, they’d need to know what they’re doing to purposely make something ugly; they just label as something progressive for the brownie points. They don’t need to pray when people these days thinks anything with no skill put into it is art and should be praised as such.

  • AuraMaster DX (austin9568)
  • AuraMaster DX (austin9568)

    Well not surprised on the marvel front because of the whole “no x-men rule” but the Capcom side of things leaves me wanting more.
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7304b9c9e0ce14e4492a53bb6c8134c9409aad796359b52e3a5cd76f359614aa.gif

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    That’s not horrifying part; what’s horrifying is that it kept getting relaunched with the same shit artist and writer that made it sell so badly.

  • bimmyz

    what a fucking joke capcom has become, ever since SFxT they keep fucking up fighting games

  • cowboyjimmy

    no wonder why this game is coming out in sept, copy pasty characters and rushed as hell.

  • 2501

    Jedah is the only thing that has got me hype. Capcom should’ve put him in a versus game years ago. As for the Marvel side… to think that people where once complaining about UMvC3’s roster.

  • 2501

    There’s an obvious reason for Capcom reducing the rosters. You gotta take into account that Capcom crafted every 3D model and attack animation of MvC3’s roster, that is a time consuming and challenging thing to accomplish for 30+ characters.

    All Capcom did in MvC1&2 was take existing sprites from their previous games and put them in a blender. You can’t do that lazy shit anymore, fighting games today need their own art direction, their own assets, their own fighting engine.

  • Zangril

    Since most of this roster comes from UMvC3 all they are doing here is taking the characters from there since they ported it to PS4/XBox1 and changing a few things. From the trailers so far every character coming from UMvC3 has the same movesets/animations which a few minor changes.

  • Don Tworry

    I’d argue some models were made to look worse somehow.

  • Zangril

    Yeah there’s no doubt that they look worse in MvCI. I hope they update the look of the game because right now it looks like Marvel Contest of Champions which is a mobile game.

  • Fenrir007

    Oh god no! I still hear the meowing in my dreams!

  • Fenrir007

    What a pitiful list. It’s like they are holding back the aces to sell you as overpriced DLC packs later on.

  • Fenrir007

    Poor lass… she was so cute and pure.

  • Loli de 42 Ex-Maridos

    if that’s the whole roster it’s a pretty shameful one.

  • mrwizeass

    >Jedah
    Oh look. Another character from that franchise that Capcom doesn’t want to make another game of…

  • Shocker Rider GG

    is shit absolute shit
    however i have my doubts
    first this leak was autorirzed ? why ?
    second jedah is kinda weird , i love jedah but he would boost the age rating due to all his attacks involve blood or even self mutilation
    third the mosnter hunter character is strange due to the fact the producers of that franshise said that they didnt want a character of their franshise in a fighter

    so two possible theories :this is just part of the roster and just this part was autorized to be leaked
    the other is that this is a completely fake roster with the purpose of surprising us or maybe to prevent leaks

    capcom has the last word lets hope they give us something good if not , not even the fact that it has x will make me buy it

  • Shocker Rider GG

    no star gadiator characters
    no rival schools characters
    no power stone characters
    no leon kennedy
    no breath of fire characters
    no zero
    no more obscure characters like gene from god hand
    no onimusha characters
    FUCKING NOTHING BUT THE SAME SHIT AGAIN
    IF THIS IS TRUE NOTHING WILL MAKE ME BUY THIS ILL SPEND MY MONEY IN FIGHTING GAMES THAT WORTH A DAMN

  • Shocker Rider GG

    also where the hell are punisher, iron fist, dare devil , vision, ghost rider, loki, black panther. SOMEONE INTERESTING INSTEAD OF THE SAME SHIT AGAIN

  • Shocker Rider GG

    yeah i also wanted gene

  • Slizzl

    Monster Hunter and Jedah sounds cool, but other than that very standard.
    No Shuma Gorath would be a bummer.

  • VLOCKUP

    Because they advocate fugly as the only true beauty. Tumblr safespaces.

  • Matz

    And why would anyone want to see a new Darkstalkers made by current Capcom?

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    They have a major Monster Hunter game coming out for Switch, could easily be an advertisement for that. The entire Marvel side is just advertising MCU characters– so Spidey gets in but no X-Men.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Considering they literally announced a 6-character dlc pass pre-launch, yes

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    People wanted X, they got X. Zero had an X alt in 3, there is no point to having both. Wolverine is Fox so yeah wait til DLC so they don’t unintentionally market for their current competitor

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    It’s almost like Marvel has multiple divisions and subdivisions, and all of them answer to Disney as well.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    god what did they do to morrigan, she looks fucking awful in whatever their new engine or lighting is

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    that will be DLC, there are 6 more characters being chopped off the roster to be sold to us that we know of, then more after that just like Shit Fighter V

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Chris is honest to god the most boring fucking character in the entire RE series, literally the least interesting person on screen at any given moment. The fact Ultron-Sigma actually bothers to acknowledge him (let alone calling him “Commander Redfield” like what the fuck?) makes no sense, the guy has no powers or interesting qualities except that he is buff. They didn’t even bother to update his clothes to RE6 style.

    RE2 Jill and RE4 Leon are two of their best characters and neither have gotten to fight in 3D.

    And then there’s Nemesis, one of the least-used, slowest characters in Marvel3… Don’t get me wrong, I love Nemmie, but if it’s him or Wesker, it just makes more sense to keep Wesker, to go with RE5 Chris… If keeping Nemesis, why not ditch Chris and bring back RE2 Jill in HD…

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    What do you mean, Capcom just recently ‘celebrated’ managing another 100k sales in 6 months. That brings their total up to 200k sold post-launch!

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Blazblue, Tekken 7 and GG Xrd Revelator are all worth getting.

  • Bret Hart

    No Daredevil and Punisher despite both staring in the popular Netflix show. No Xmen, No Deadpool, No Doctor Doom. Nope not dealing with this shit.

  • tccboss

    After SFV I really don’t care for capcom fighters.

  • Forgotten One
  • No Squirrel Girl for diversity, body positivity and to defy patriarchal standards of female beauty?

  • Sylveria Shini

    This is a pretty sorry looking character list compared to the last one.

  • Rough

    Your horrified at what happened to Morrigan, I’m more so at Chun-li.
    Like, deer lord, this might be the only game where they screw up their golden waifu.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Capcom doesn’t deserve your money. Of course, when they announce a new Megaman game at E3 next week, everyone will forgive them… but they shouldn’t.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    I’m wondering why anyone expected MVCI to be good when SFV was so bad.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Getting rid of the bright and colorful comic aesthetic of the previous games for this ugly, flat-lit, “realistic” style in UE4, that is the stupidest idea they’ve had yet. Nobody thought MVC should look more like MK/Injustice.

  • Zaelle

    I have made the same criticism. I hate when rosters shrink in size. One of the best things about 2 (my fav) was the huge roster. Even if some of the chars play similarly, it still gives people choice to use different niche heroes.

  • ProxyDoug

    Hmm, Gamora and Jedah… Monster Hunter… Is Spencer from Bionic Commando?

  • ProxyDoug

    – The game is still fun you know
    – It’s not like ou deserve better than last time
    – QUIT WANTING TO HAVE FUN!

  • ActivistZero

    RE3 Jill, it was Claire Redfield in RE2

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Yes, supposedly kept in the roster at Combofiend’s request.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Thank you, didn’t even notice that

  • Matz

    One could think after the bad reception SFV got and how it failed to meet sales expectations Capcom would start thinking before making their desitions, it appears that everybody was wrong

  • Forgotten One

    Oh yeah, good idea! Why not stop making games, AT ALL! Why bother with new consoles when we can all play on the old Atari^^

  • Dom The Elegy

    I’d go for Rev 2 which just came out in case of Guilty Gear. Also Accent Core Plus R is different enough from it to also be worth the price. BlazBlue is a fine game in itself but it never resonated with me like Guilty Gear did.
    The best analogy I came across was that Guilty Gear is 90s anime while Blazblue is 2000 anime. That pretty much nails it (also, the music is way better in Guilty Gear).

  • Agreed. No X & Zero team, no buy. That’s an iconic duo right there. =

  • No Wesker
    No Vergil
    No Black Panther
    No Vision
    No Zero
    No Phoenix Wright
    No Frank West
    No Black Widow
    No Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan)
    No Haggar
    No Asura
    No Loki

    NO BUY. 🙄

  • X & Zero both have drastically differing fighting styles, so having both DOES make sense. =P

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Zero has a sword, X doesn’t, to the average person there’s no point to having both.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    Rev2 is an update for Rev1 as well.

  • Forgotten One

    This doesn’t concern the MCU at all, but oh well, let haters hate…

  • mrwizeass

    I don’t care which timeline you pull from. I’ve waited long enough for a new Darkstalkers.

  • Eden

    The MCU is what the roster is based on which is why there’s no X-men, Deadpool, etc.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Yeah but I just can’t see Capcom not using this as a last ditch effort to grasp at whatever attention they can get towards one of their last three cash cows. Now all that’s left is Monster Hunter and half of Resident Evils fanbase.

  • Forgotten One

    As I said, it isn’t. It’s been already confirmed that the roster isn’t restricted to the MCU. If you look at Marvel Heroes, you’ll see the same thing. You have a big roster (X-Men etc. included) and you can still buy skins which are inspired from the MCU.

  • Forgotten One

    people complain without knowing their shit… the level of ignorance in this comment section is unbelievable

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    the head of MVCI didn’t work on SF, he was involved in games like Tatsunoko vs Capcom. also probably a matter of roster space, seeing how anemic that lineup is

  • Dom The Elegy

    Yeah, I know but they are doing a stand alone release on console at least so if someone is unsure and hasn’t got Revelator already that’s the one to go for.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    What’s that got to do with anything? They work for Capcom and their persistence in forcing people to do shit they don’t wanna do with no ability to occasionally do their own thing is what helped run off their talent when they started going bad.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    My point was the focus isn’t on SFV because the head of MVCI has nothing to do with SF, that’s Ono. Although there are rumors that SF characters will be held back to release alongside Mutants so they can do callbacks to “X-Men vs Street Fighter”

  • mrwizeass

    Phoenix Wright played like shit anyway.
    Half of those reasons are why it never pays to buy at launch and wait until a GOTY edition is released.
