Following the announcement of Capcom’s Viewtiful Joe and Marvel’s Dormammu as playable characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3:Fate of Two Worlds, Capcom did their usual dance and made exhibition videos of the newly announced characters.
The videos feel both new and familiar at the same time, with Viewtiful Joe playing like his Tatsunoko vs. Capcom incarnation with subtle changes in his arsenal such as a faster Desperado shot, Shocking Pink, and Voomerang.
Dormammu also brings back a few memories by sharing a handful of similarities with Marvel vs. Capcom 2’s Blackheart, utilizing both towering pillars of energy and meteor showers to control space and push opponents back just like our dear Blacky would.
Capcom finished off the pair of videos by adding a third one as a summary of previously announced characters. It’s nothing new or special, but it sure is a nice way of putting the sheer volume of characters in a bite-sized perspective.
Look for the nostalgia inducing characters to make their presence known in Spring 2011.
