TGS10; X-23 confirmed in Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Capcom revealed two new playable characters today. Tron Bonne from the Mega Man Legends series was the first character announced. She was featured in the trailer released a few days ago but hasn’t been shown in actual gameplay yet, until now. The second character revealed was X-23, a female clone of Wolverine. X-23 is the first female character to represent the Marvel side.
Unlike Wolverine, X-23 has claws in her hands and feet. The differences between the two characters are pretty apparent if you watch the footage. We also get to see Chun-Li get pummeled by X-23 and that’s just not right.
If you’re unfamiliar with the character, X-23 is actually pretty interesting. Her origin comics provide a unique take on the well known Wolverine origin story. The comics are a good read and we highly recommend checking them out.
[Update] Capcom unleashed a bunch of gameplay videos. The TGS trailer is gonna take you for a ride…
