Earlier this morning, Capcom revealed a set of gampley videos touting two new characters for Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Phoenix Wright and Nova. In one video, the characters are seen fighting in the new "Days of Future Past" stage, themed after the "imperfect" future seen throughout the X-Men lore. What's interesting here lies midst the background, as Capcom may have inadvertently snuck in a little Mega Man tease.
Take a good look at that poster. It's an obvious homage to a particular Uncanny X-Men comic, yes, but that's not the point. If you look on the poster closely, you'll see multiple Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 characters listed as either "Apprehended" or "Slain"... except Mega Man.
The general consensus that's currently setting the net ablaze is this is an implication that Mega Man will be headed to UMvC3, likely as future DLC. Of the MvC2 characters displayed, he is implied to be the only one "alive."
Alas, we can only speculate for now. No doubt his presence in the game would be welcomed by MANY; fans have been rallying for his inclusion ever since the vanilla Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, after all. Hopefully, there's some grounds to this tease. I'd really hate for this to turn out to be a cruel bluff. Only time will tell! UPDATE: Roughly five minutes into this video interview, Seth Killian admits the poster was thrown in just for fun, in spite of the fact Capcom knew people would jump all over it. Hm, anybody else smell that? I kid, I kid.
