For the time being, Mega Man isn't playable in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Fortunately, the blue bomber hasn't been given the cold shoulder entirely. According to new UMvC3 footage and screens from around the community, Mega Man and pals will guest appear in both Nova and Thor's ending cutscenes:
Nova's ending not only manages to sneak in Mega Man, but also the likes of Roll, Proto Man, Zero, and Beat -- all decked out in traditional Nova Corp. threads. Veteran of vanilla MvC3, Thor's touched up ending now features a nod Mega Man, Ryu, and Morrigan. So far, only footage of Nova's ending has surfaced, viewable here. Thor's should be coming along soon. In the meantime, here's a few comparison shots.
And now, the million dollar question: teasing or trolling? It's times like these I'm reminded of Destructoid's recent Seth Killian interview: "When I questioned Killian if we'd see more DLC past Heroes and Heralds mode he responded 'We'll see.' So Mega Man and more DLC for UMvC3 has neither been confirmed or denied. The dream still lives... at least for now."
All's not entirely lost just yet, it seems. Still, it's best to continue to rally support and raise your voice. Something's gotta turn out right for our blue boy!
Now ain't that cute...ReplyDelete
I suspect high trollery on this one, Capcom isn't on my favs for nowReplyDelete
I've been saying for a while now that Megaman as a DLC character is extremely likely, and this just adds to it. Thor's ending in particular has Megaman as a part of the MvC3 universe. Capcom's been teasing this for a while, and I still don't believe that the "Days of Future Past" poster was a dummy, either.ReplyDelete
Also, those Nova Corp outfits look so spiffy on the Megaman crew!
Isn't that Blues and Forte? Not Zero and Roll? XDDReplyDelete
This is ridiculous!ReplyDelete
A lot of us supported X getting in, and what did we get? X as a card, in a mode where all the cards are NPCs.ReplyDelete
I honestly can't tell if this is teasing or trolling, but for now I'm leaning towards "trolling" with a side of "half-assed 'compensation'".
Picture was already posted to the Mega Man wiki:ReplyDelete
Unlike your post you can see Roll's face in this one :)
WOW HE MIGHT BE DLC. This is what we mega man fans have been reduced too grabbing at the scraps of capcom and smiling at a MAYBE.ReplyDelete
Aww, Roll looks adorable. :)ReplyDelete
I really want to believe that these are hints toward Classic Megaman being added later, but I just don't think they are.ReplyDelete
Is it just me or does Nova Roll have "a larger chest".ReplyDelete
X is DLC in UMvC3!ReplyDelete
Revelations that have come out of thisReplyDelete
a) If one looks at vanilla MvC3, a good chunk of the cameos (doctor strange, nemesis, ghost rider) ended up getting into the game. Megaman's making a BIG appearance in the cameos. Definitely starting the hype train.
b) Furthermore, they had all their dlc already planned out. You know it's most likely the case as well.
c) The fact he and Roll are ALIVE in both endings means that the Days of Future Past stage doesn't mean shit.
d) The oddity of Zero with them in the Nova Corps ending means Capcom is DEFINITELY saying 'Fuck you' to the canon(as if Zero's original ending didn't do that already). Anything's up in the air now.
Verdict: Keep making noise. They DEFENITELY want Classic support, not X.
And now, the million dollar question: teasing or trolling?ReplyDelete
The answer is trolling.
Niitsuma told us that X would be fit in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Now, here he is:
Niitsuma is truly trolling us after all. >_<
Lol to Nova's ending. The Nova Man team, with Proto Man as the Gigamix "Shield Surfer" and Roll Galactus' Nova herald... or Zero with flaming hair?ReplyDelete
This makes me more hopeful for the blue bomber to be DLC. Phoenix only had an ending cameo a few months ago, and now he is in the game. Let's hope for the best.ReplyDelete
Protodude, I wish these pics were called out as spoilers and separated from the front page. The game hasn't even come out yet, and I'd have liked to see endings for myself.ReplyDelete
We oughta do something similiar to the whole get me off the moon Mega Man Legends 3 movement if we want to get Mega Man for MvC3.ReplyDelete
Who's with me?
