#1
Phoenix and Mike Haggar were officially revealed this morning for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Here's HD versions of the intro movies for both fighters.

Phoenix Reveal Trailer (720p)



Haggar Reveal Trailer (720p)



It appears that one of those leak lists are getting more and more accurate, right down to the whole "Dark Phoenix" bit.

We can probably assume that Sentinel and Hsien-Ko are going to be revealed sometime in the near future too.

I was really hoping that a shark would bite-catch the victim at the top of Haggar's L3 before the piledriver. Can't have everything I guess.
 
#10
Oh, right. That Phoenix. She does look really fun to play.

Haggar doesn't really look like my cup of tea, but I do really like the Amaterasu skin you see at the start of that fight.

YES! Hottie redheads, invade! Viper+Phoenix is a really strong, fast and agile duo, or so it seems. Now, who is gonna be my 3rd? : )

Awesome effects in the trailer, graphically phoenix is a BEAST.

I think a big character that can cover for her and take damage for her would be extremely beneficial. Sentinel is hopefully good.

Why the hell is Chun-Li speaking english?
Because this is the English version of the game.

I'm assuming she was speaking Japanese in the old videos as they were the Japanese version.

Am I the only one being delusional thinking it meant Phoenix Wright :'(. And yes I don't know anything about Marvel besides the most known characters.
Hmm, I'll try another edit.

Yeah, my bad. I see someone edited it already, I just assumed people would realise that two Capcom character wouldn't be revealed at the same time, it's always one and one.

Phoenix will be top tier. That heal super does so much regeneration. Plus, did she teleport? Fuuuuuuck.
Yeah but did you also notice her health bar drains after that? Not only that, you must have five levels of energy to actually revive properly. I think it's a fair trade off, when you combine the health drain with any potential hits that may happen.

Hmm, I'll try another edit.
NOT PHOENIX WRIGHT seems to be the only one that will work. >_>

It should be obvious though.
Phoenix Wright != Phoenix.
Two chars confirmed: one from each side. Haggar -> Capcom. So it leaves Phoenix to BE from Marvel side. It cant be a Capcom/Capcom reveal.

She's kind of reminding me of Spiral a bit. Teleport, stationary projectile, run away or rush down potential.

Phoenix seems pretty interesting. I like the dark mode, but I wonder if you can turn it off once you activate it; it healed her to full (5 bars consumed) and then slowly started to kill her.

Technically shouldn't she be speaking Chinese?

It's not like Japanese is any more authentic for her then English.

Hell, she's an Interpol agent. Her main three languages should logically be Chinese, English, and French.

No, it's Phoenix Wright. He failed to get his badge back after AJ, and decided to have a sex change, which was botched so badly it gave him superpowers.

They changed that since SFIV. Hope they have language voice options. I wish she spoke Mandarin instead of Japanese tho.
Capcom characters will have Japanese and English voice options... Marvel characters only English.

Ohhh...that's what I get for completely ignoring SFIV.
Namco seems to be the only developer who cares about characters speaking their native languages.

She's been speaking Japanese since forever ago though. It'd be just plain weird if she started using Chinese/Mandarin.

Phoenix looks seriously awesome, they did a great job with her.

Haggar is just a little underwhelming, and that voice doesn't seem like the best match. It's ok, just like I said, underwhelming.

Nirolak said:
Oh I see.

Perhaps they decided to change it randomly. o_O
If I remember right, they said there was an option to switch most of the Capcom characters between Japanese and English, akin to Street Fighter IV.

Edit: Beaten multiple times while I was rewriting my Haggar comments.

Capcom characters have dual voice options JPN/ENG. Marvel characters are english only.
My new question is that the Spanish videos that revealed some new colors had a female battle announcer. Where'd that come from? Not that I mind.

Indeed, Tekken 5 did it the best. REAL fucking Mandarin for a Chinese character. Still no Cantonese for Hong Kong characters tho. :(

haggar's basically Zangief.... disappointing.
Not really. Just from the trailer I already thought they did a good job of differentiating them (given that Haggar already has lariat and pile driver etc).

Would actually like to see Haggar in SF5 or something.

You say this like I actually ASKED for Haggar. >_>
I remember it exactly, you came in with a gun to a nun's head and said hagger better be in the game or you would set this nun on fire and throw her off of a bridge into shark-infested acid.

That's what you said i'm sure of it I have perfect memory.

Expected thanks to the leaks, but nice additions.
How did those kinds of leaks happen in the first place, anyway? You'd think after the whole SSFIV roster got exposed before it was even announced they would have stepped up security or something.
