TGS10; Spider-Man and Wesker confirmed in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Submitted by on Saturday, 18 September 20103 Comments

It looks like Wesker has some unfinished business to settle with Chris Redfield. Capcom has revealed Wesker and Spider-Man as playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Finally, Spider-Man has been confirmed. Considering how popular the character is it’s weird that we had to wait so long to see him. His gameplay mechanics should be instantly familiar to fans of the versus series, although he does have some new tricks. Notice that Spidey can web across the screen faster than ever now.

Wesker, if you don’t know for some reason, is the main antagonist of the Resident Evil series. It’s really neat that he’s in the game now, especially with all his moves from RE5 intact. In the video below you’ll notice that he can teleport like a madman and that one of his Hyper combos is a counter move.

Wesker and Spider-Man aren’t the only new characters announced for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Earlier this week Capcom revealed Tron Bonne, from the Mega Man Legends series and X-23, the female clone of Wolverine. You can read all about them here. Unfortunately, Capcom hasn’t released artwork and screenshots for Wesker and Spider-Man yet. Well give an updated once that happens.

On September 22nd, Capcom is bringing Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to Chicago. The TGS build will be playable for the first time outside of Japan. It’s going to be awesome.

  • Deadpool
  • Captain America
  • Doctor Doom
  • Super-Skrull
  • Thor
  • Dormammu
