Mega Man fans might have to make do with just Tron Bonne and Zero when it comes to MM series reps for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3...
The unveiling of two new characters at the Consumer Electronic Show today, Mike Haggar and Phoenix, and the abrupt removal of a leaked Akuma screenshot, support a leaked character roster from a few weeks back that had a few glaring character omissions, most notably Mega Man himself.
The roster leak, hailing from a now defunct Twitter account but archived over at Shoryuken, has been spot on as of late with a 100% accuracy of all recent announcements. According to the original leak, Mega Man was ruled out early in the game's development because he brought nothing new or unique to the game. To compensate, Capcom put in Arthur as a replacement because he shares a similar play style with Mega Man.
If we seriously consider the accuracy of these leaks, then things aren't looking too hot for Mega Man. It's a pretty complex saga, all these leaks. Reader Steven Chase has compiled all relevant information in a great post over at his website, so do go their if you're seeking out more, in-depth information concerning the "predictions" of that ominous Twitter leaker.
While Mega Man may be MIA now, there's still a sliver of hope that he might be included as DLC in the future. Maybe. I'm sure if there's enough demand, Capcom will look into it.
