Mega Man Legends 3 eShop Bound

Capcom announced that the upcoming Mega Man Legends 3 Nintendo 3DS game will be getting a Nintendo eShop exclusive prototype version when the service launches this summer. Aptly titled Mega Man 3 Legends Prototype Version, the downloadable game will allow players a sneak peak of Mega Mans next open world adventure.

Mega Man 3 Legends Prototype Version will feature one core mission, but once players finish their assigned task the game will open up unfinished areas along with a debug menu that will grant special moves and abilities.

Capcom is also inviting 3DS owners to voice their opinion on the game through it’s Unity Web site.

Screens and video of the blue bomber in action are incoming – stay tuned!

Super Street Fighter IV SpotPass Alert!

Notice a little blue dot glowing this morning on your Nintendo 3DS hinge? Capcom was nice enough to send out the first “gift” SpotPass this morning – a special gold Blanka figurine for Super Street Fighter IV 3D’s StreetPass mode!

Here’s the code for those without a WiFi connection – DmdkeRvbxc.

Keep them coming Capcom!

Pat Robertson Upset Over Marvel Vs. Capcom 3

700 Club founder Pat Robertson has voiced his displeasure with Capcom’s latest brawlfest Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. “Capcom has purposely ignored our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in their final lineup of fighters” Pat continued during a recent rant “Why is the fate of two worlds in the hands of second rate gods like Thor and Amaterasu when it’s obvious Jesus should have been made playable?”

When asked to comment, Thor, the god of thunder, only had this to say “Jesus? We cool.”

Capcom has decided to honor Robertson’s demands and will include Jesus in an upcoming DLC pack. Capcom wouldn’t comment on which version of Jesus would be playable, but early production work indicates 3D Jesus will at least be an alternative costume.

* WORK IN PROGRESS

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is now available for the PlayStation 3 and XBox 360.

Marvel Vs Capcom 3’s Missing Crew (Capcom Edition)

With almost 40 playable characters, Capcom is obviously trying its hardest to pack as many virtual brawlers as possible in its upcoming fighter mega-mix, Marvel Vs Capcom 3. While we completely appreciate the company’s efforts, there is always room for improvement.

This super nerd post is a listing of our 5 favorite Capcom characters that are suspiciously missing in action (Check out our Marvel Edition from a few week’s back). We’re trying to go original here, so only characters that have not appeared in a Versus title qualify for this list.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Samanosuke (Onimusha) – A shining gem of Capcom’s last generation efforts, the lead of the first Onimusha adventure would make excellent Marvel Vs Capcom fodder. Capcom already featured the samurai in the often overlooked Blade Warriors, so an appearance in the Versus series should be a given.

Samanosuke’s samurai sword would be his main weapon, but we wouldn’t mind seeing some bow or elemental attacks in the mix.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney) – If anyone has a chance of making into the hopefully long list of upcoming DLC characters, everyone’s favorite portable lawyer Pheonix Wright has to be at the top of Capcom’s list. Mentioned in multiple interviews about the game, Mr. Wright’s  iconic look and “Objection” catch phrase would fit perfect in the Versus universe.

Phoenix Wright’s finishing move might be visually tricky to pull off, but our idea would see Phoenix literally “throwing the book” at his foes.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Edward Falcon (Power Stone) – Don’t remember Edward Falcon? This all American pilot was one of our favorite characters from the cult classic Dreamcast brawler Power Stone. Don’t let Falcon’s boyish looks fool you, once powered up, this red suited bruiser turned into an anime inspired mech that packed a serious punch with a barrage of heat tracking missiles that would swarm towards his competitors.

Honestly, any of the Power Stone crew would make fine additions to the Marvel Vs Capcom 3 roster – in fact, let’s get an official reboot going Capcom, this cult fighter deserves another day out in the sun!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Barry Burton (Resident Evil) – Did you really think we’d leave S.T.A.R.S. supply man Barry Burton off the list? Marvel Vs Capcom 3 may already feature the holy trinity of Resident Evil characters (Chris, Jill and Wesker say hi) but Barry’s awkward dialogue and bad-ass beard would be a welcome addition on the Capcom side of the line up.

Barry’s special and move set would be predicable but fun – all Capcom would need to do is take Barry’s Mercenaries Reunion animations and add those classic Burton-isms like “master of un-locking” and “You were almost a Jill sandwich”.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Scrooge McDuck (DuckTales) – Before you roll your eyes, hear us out. Sure, the richest duck in the world isn’t directly a Capcom character, but the NES classic DuckTales is one of our all time favorites and with Disney owning Marvel, licensing Mr. McDuck wouldn’t be the nightmare everyone would expect.

Scrooge would feature his signature cane/pogo stick as a weapon, and we’re sure oversized money bags would be the perfect visual punch for a super move. A guest appearance by Uncle Scrooge’s meddlesome nephews would be another nice addition, but if we don’t see a safe swimming ending scene they’ll be hell to pay!

Marvel Vs Capcom 3’s Missing Crew (Marvel Edition)

With almost 40 playable characters, Capcom is obviously trying its hardest to pack as many virtual brawlers as possible in its upcoming fighter mega-mix, Marvel Vs Capcom 3. While we completely appreciate the company’s efforts, there is always room for improvement.

This super nerd post is a listing of our 5 favorite Marvel characters that are suspiciously missing in action. We’re trying to go original here, so only characters that have not appeared in a Versus title qualify for this list.

_________________________________________________________________________

Hawkeye – With a rumored upcoming appearance in this summer’s Thor flick and a co-starring role in next year’s Avengers, Clint Barton A.K.A. Hawkeye should have been a lock in for Marvel Vs Capcom 3. This O.G. Avenger’s moves would have been easy to implement – there’s always room for projectile sluggers in Capcom’s over-the-top fighting games.

Hawkeye’s special move? A barrage of explosive arrows is the easy pick, but maybe a few signature trick arrows would be better fan service. A Ronin skin swap would just be icing on the cake.

_________________________________________________________________________

Daredevil – The man without fear would be a perfect fit for the Marvel Vs Capcom universe. A master of hand-to-hand combat, Daredevil could also carry his custom built billy club that screams 40 hit combo! Daredevil’s special move should highlight the fact that our hero is blind – maybe a lights-out “justice is blind” combo?

Matt Murdock deserves a spot – maybe a Pheonix Wright Versus Matt Murdock court room battle is in order?

_________________________________________________________________________

Kingpin – The Versus games always seem to be lacking in the villain department, and who better to fill the baddie void then larger-than-life Wilson Fisk A.K.A The Kingpin. A nemesis to both Spider-man and Daredevil, Kingpin’s size and girth would work well in the world of medium sized grapplers.

Kingpin may not sport any real “super” powers, but his huge hands could be force to be reckoned with in close quarters.

_________________________________________________________________________

Black Widow – Another M.I.A. Avenger, the Black Widow should have spun her way into the Versus universe a long time ago. Natalia Romanova has been a long time staple of the Marvel comic world and with a recent silver screen spot in Iron Man 2, she’s the fem fatale fan boys have been clamoring for.

Another martial arts master, Widow could use her brawn and brains to take opponents down. Maybe Natalia deserves a leg heavy grapple for a finishing move?

Oh, and including the Widow on this list gives us a reason to post a pic of the amazingly hot Scarlett Johansen…

Wow Wa Wee Wa!

_________________________________________________________________________

Norman Osborn – This is a no-brainer. The original Green Goblin, Norman Osborn is the ultimate villain that is literally howling to be included in the Versus series. Pumpkin bombs, the goblin glider – Mr. Osborn’s arsenal is both impressive and deadly.

If anyone deserves a spot as the next DLC character, the Green Goblin needs to be at the top of Capcom’s list. A Spidey versus Green Menace grudge match would just be dreamy.

_________________________________________________________________________

And that was the first edition of The Forgotten Few – Marvel Vs Capcom 3’s Missing Crew. Check back next week for our thoughts on the Capcom side of the roster – the NES, PlayStation, Dreamcast and Handheld eras will all be well represented.
