Marvel vs. Capcom 3 – Galactus cometh

Submitted by on Wednesday, 9 February 20112 Comments

There are a couple of things that you should know about end game bosses in fighting games. For one their health bar will be considerably larger than yours and will decrease at an alarmingly slower rate. Secondly they will have a host of cheap and powerful moves at their disposal which will ultimately frustrate and annoy before killing you.

Something tells us that Marvel vs Capcom 3 doesn’t intend to break either of these principles. Have a look at the planet eater that will have you throwing your controller against the wall.

To date the Marvel vs. Capcom series has seen bosses such as Onslaught, and Apocalypse making Galactus a somewhat logical progression.

In short Galactus is a giant planet eater and with Earth being the tastiest of all planets it is up to you and your select group of fighters to make sure the third planet never reaches his small intestines.

From the looks of things you’ll have to go through a pair of silver-surferesque villains before you even reach Galactus. Oh and they’re going to go ahead and fight you at the same time. There is a silver lining here however because this pair will share the same health bar.

After dispatching the silver ones it’s on to the big, purple one.

This is where your frustration will begin to boil over. Take a look at the practically screen encompassing attacks that he brings. With a single attack totaling the equivalent of about 200 hits you’re definitely going to want to make quick, clean work of the initial villains.

If that wasn’t enough Galactus sports a health bar that is roughly one and a half times the size of  your own and no doubt it will trickle rather than flow down to empty.

So what do you think of the purple-headed planet eater (don’t forget to click through the gallery below) and who will you choose to defend our planet?
