You're missing Paula from Dino Crisis. She's the one other recurring female character in the series, so I feel she warrants a mention. Also Oyu from Onimusha 2, and Princess Tiara from Gaia Master. The latter was actually considered for TvC.

Itsuno said whatever he is working (90% sure it is DMC5) will be announced sometime this year. So it is pretty much a lock for E3 or PSX.
Fixed that for you. Unless he's showing off a DMC kart racer or something we won't see anything at TGS. That era is past.
 
^Which pooh sister was in MVC1? I think Tong was....There's Tong, Pei, and Sai. (and Nang) I'd prefer their teacher with the wind powers, Xi Wang Mu, over them all. She can do everything they can plus more. Like turn into a energy panther

if you dig deeper you could also list Strider's sister Mariya and his ally Sheena
 
Which one? There are like two or three rosters.
Sorry, this one

So... this showed up at GF
Take with a HUGE grain of salt

- A SF2 character who doens't are Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Guile or Gouki[A gift of the 30th anniversary of SF2. Some hints appoint to be Blanka, because of Yoshinori Ono's requests, and also to be a desired rival of Hulk, since Marvel Super Heroes VS. Street Fighter]


MARVEL SIDE:

There's some especulation because Steve Rogers, the Captain America. Since the latest reveal of Cap. America being a Hydra agent(And because of that, Capcom of USA could want to avoid a Nazi element in the game, for esports safe move) the staff are discussing if Captain America should be removed or changed into U.S. Agent.

The fate of that discussion will be revealed in E3, when the first stage of the character reveals will be exposed. One of those 3 things will happen: Steve Rogers will be maintained, or replaced to the U.S. Agent or there will be no Captain America character in the game.

X-Men will be represented in the initial roster in a good number. This is counting the potential DLCs. We don't know who will be in the initial roster and who will be dlc.

X-Men:

- Wolverine(With the classic MVC1 suit, not the MvC3 one)

- Ms. Marvel
- Adam Warlock(He will be the counterpart of X, being the important Marvel character in Story mode, especially because of the infinity gems. Imagine him as the good counterpart of Thanos when using the gem supers.)
- Black Widow
- Thanos(He will not be a boss character, but he will appear in story mode as one of the last enemies before the real final boss. The joke "thanoscopter" will appear but not exactly like all people are used to see in the HQs)
- Stan Lee(A secret joke character who will use Dan's clothes.)


- Fantastic Four
[ALL DLC]
?



Bosses[Actually, regular characters who serves as sub-bosses in story mode]:

- Ultron[Classic design]
- Sigma[Irregular hunter X design]

Final Boss:

Irregular Ultron[He will have the mixture appearances of X5 Sigma and classic Ultron. Unplayable. Two forms. One who reminds Sentinel and other who reminds a bit the final boss from X7]
Seems way too random IMO
 
Sorry, this one

Seems way too random IMO
Yeah, "Death Vanguard" for DMC, Captain America Nazi thing, Stan "The Dan" Lee, and the specificity of some info vs the vagueness of others like "A BoF rep" (yet he "knows" about Cap Nazi/US Agent discussions, Adam Warlock story counterpart).

The whole thing is pretty stupid.

The Steam equivalent of the drunk friend who keeps offering to pay your tab all night.
What often takes place at press events? Journalists obviously get tons of information. Do they usually get extensive hands on experience with the game as well?
Some years ago Capcom had that Hawaii thing for press (like in...08 or something, around the SF4 days), sounds like what this is.

Captivate or something. It was mostly hands off from what I remember hearing on the bombcast.

So, uh, I've been kinda rediscovering my love for fighting games for a while now.

Grew up playing Street Fighter 2, Melee and Tekken 3, but only Smash managed to keep me (and also the vast majority of my friends) hooked over the years. Enjoyed a ton of Guilty Gear/BlazBlue but ultimately stuck with playing through the singleplayer content of those because I find other people to play with turned out being extremely hard. Pretty sure I also played at least one entry of every major fighting game series over the years, even if it was just at a friend's house for a couple of hours (MvC2 as well but I'll be getting to that later). As mentioned before, Smash was the big one for me and I played 4 for a solid year at a decently competive level, but ultimately stopped to free up my gaming time for singleplayer games again.

So, that's where I stood a few months ago. Stayed the hell away from SFV because I didn't think the game would be worth a purchase for me, despite finding the prospect of a new and fresh SF tempting. Played a bit of Xrd SIGN as well.

Now, another thing that ultimately kept me away from non-Tekken/Smash FGs was that I struggled with directional inputs on a gamepad. Not being able to reliably hit the motions and something about how I'd have to roll my thumb across the d-pad just put me oft. Well, I finally got myself a cheap arcade stick three weeks ago and OH BOY this changed everything for me. I'm keeping up with FGs enough to know that a good amount of pro players use a gamepad, so I don't wanna add fuel to the fire if that discussion is still a thing, but at least for me it felt like actually being able to play and enjoy these games again. Ended up downloading and playing every FG I ever bought on PSN. Even SFV, which I bought earlier this year because it was dirt cheap + all the Season 1 DLC, which I'm kinda playing primarily now at least until Xrd Rev2 and Tekken 7 are out.

OKAY, this is where you guys come in, finally. Sorry for the long rant. With my rekindled interest in everything Fighting Games I remembered MvCI and the re-release of MvC3 on current gen being a thing. Only having played MvC2 on PS3 for an unremarkable amount of time/being unable to redownload it and remembering playing like two round of MvC3, I wonder if this series would be something I could get into it. Gotta be honest, as a spectator, I kinda struggle to follow what's happening when watching a match. Also heard that the games are notoriously(?) unbalanced. You see, despite having a good grasp on FG mechanics and terminology, I feel like a complete casual when it comes to MvC.

My questions now:
How's the online in MvC3 on PS4? Is the netcode decent enough? Decently populated? If not, is the singleplayer experience good enough to toy around with team combinations and such? Is balancing actually bad or is that just a meme at this point?

Essentially, please help me getting into Marvel. ;__;

Sorry to hijack this thread, I didn't expect this post to end up this long actually, but I happened to see the article on EventHubs (lol) regarding imminent news on MvCI and ended up reading the last 10 or so pages of this thread during lunch break.

Hope you people can answer my questions and that perhaps I can join the crazy speculation/hype train going on here. If anything, X being in Infinite is already a strong positive for me, haha.

I can give you a more casual-medium level view point. The netcode is decent enough. It's not A+++, but it gets the job done so long as both connections are good. The numerous arcade difficulties and training options do help with training with all options. I would say it's unbalanced but not so much so as MVC2. There's just a lot of effective stuff, but there is a counter to most of it as well. Even now some surprises happen within the scene.

About time for some new news on this game, it's actually been way too long even for how early the first videos were.

And I'm not talking about that list where the majority of the characters most people wouldn't even know of.
 
Freeform : Speedball. Cloak and Dagger is a very close second but I really really want to see Robbie in a fighting game and it will 100% never happen.

Netflix : hard question. I could be safe and go Iron Fist but lets go nuts and say Misty Knight. maybe with Colleen Wing as a part of her moveset as well.
Because if I can't get one Nightwing in a certain game, I could settle for the other ;)

ABC : an even harder question because there's so many random ABC Marvel characters I might want to see that show up and then are either killed or fade into the background, never to be seen again. Basically there's been so many characters I probably forgot someone cool. Probably Crystal but Ghost Rider and Mockingbird could be in that list as well...not sure really

Mahvel fans must have felt so salty the past few months with Injustice news and reveals coming left right and center.

It's like a man dying of thirst watching a man drown.
Considering those Injustice fans had to deal with something very similar its more like watching someone dehydrate in a part of the desert and then be rescued and hoping they see you and rescue you as well.

or something like that. I don't do "top of my head" analogies well
