Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

Box art for the highly-anticipated Marvel vs. Capcom 3 video game was released this week; interesting to note that not a single female Marvel character made the cut for the box:

Meanwhile, Capcom represents three.  Add to that, the only playable female characters on the Marvel side that have been revealed are She-Hulk and X-23.

I’m genuinely kind of perplexed.

    That is a shame. But you have to admit, being able to play as Shulkie is VERY cool.

    • Shulkie is an awesome addition, no doubt about it. It’s just too bad they don’t throw in more variety as far as playable female characters. X-23 seems like a pretty random choice, too.

        Two words – downloadable content. It is a way for Capcom and Marvel to milk more money from the game, in the pretense of adding characters they could not originally put into the game. I hate DLC.

      • I don’t see why they couldn’t originally put them into the game. If they want to milk some DLC, then leave out an extremely popular character like Deadpool or someone and put a female in his place, then make people download his character for $$. I guess we’ll see when the game comes out whether or not you have the option to download other female superheroes (which still sounds a little skeevy to me in a number of ways).
