During Comic-Con International 2010, Capcom has been announcing new characters for its upcoming fighting game, Marvel vs Capcom 3. So far the roster has been pretty standard, with one major exception: there’s a big white wolf god on the list.
Amaterasu, star of the critically acclaimed and fan loved PS2 and Wii game Okami was officially revealed on Marvel’s website, and is being announced during Capcom’s MvC3 panel.
In Okami and the upcoming Nintendo DS game Okamiden, the wolf god uses the power of nature to defeat enemies. Capcom hasn’t shown Amaterasu in action yet, but we’re pretty psyched (can everybody say “Please be overpowered so I can kick everyone’s ass with a wolf”?)
Marvel also announced Thor, which brings the total character count so far to 16.
Known characters so far: Chun-Li, Trish, Doctor Doom, Super-Skrull, Chris Redfield, The Hulk, Dante, Captain America, Felicia, Wolverine, Morrigan, Deadpool, Iron Man, and Ryu.
Marvel vs Capcom 3 is set to release Q2 2011.
