Okay, so the big reveal of more playable characters in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 isn’t exactly a surprise, given that images of most of the characters were leaked last month right about the same time the game was announced. Still, it’s one thing to know their identities, and another to actually see them in action.
In a pair of new Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 teasers released during Gamescom, two of the aforementioned playable characters show off their moves in a fast-moving, tag-team brawl. In one of the unlikeliest duels in fictional history, Marvel’s sorcerer supreme, Doctor Strange, squares off against the Umbrella Corporation’s bazooka-wielding brute, Nemesis.
In the game footage, the pair are assisted in their efforts by the previously introduced new additions to the game’s lineup: Hawkeye, Ghost Rider, Firebrand, and Strider.
Oh, and we’re fairly certain Doctor Strange uses “Spell-o-vision” as one of his attacks, but we might’ve heard that wrong. (We’re pretty sure it’s not “Smell-o-vision,” because that would just be ridiculous.)
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will hit shelves in November as a new retail package instead of online DLC, so if you’re eager to beat down your buddies using the ol’ Eye of Agamatto, get ready to drop $39.99 for the opportunity.
