Assuming they rip from TvC:UAS and UMvC3 (just like MvC3 did from TvC), we have to start:
Ryu Chun-Li Alex Crimson Viper Akuma Megaman Volnutt Roll Zero Tron Chris Wesker Jill Nemesis T-Type Morrigan Felicia Hsein-Ko Dante Trish Vergil Arthur Firebrand Batsu Kaijin no Soki Saki Viewtiful Joe Frank West PTX-40A Amaterasu Spencer Haggar Phoenix Wright Strider Hiryu
32 characters and 17 series is a nice start (considering Rival Schools and Final Fight separate from Street Fighter, of course), though I doubt they all would come back. It's almost certain at least part of the missing MvC2 cast would make a comeback as well.
I think if 3v3 sticks around it would be awesome to keep giants like PTX-40A and balance them as taking 2 slots (I thought that would have been neat for MvC3 since the problem with TvC giants was no tagging in a tag game, but oh well), but I assume this game would be as significantly different from TvC and MvC3 as they are from each other. Who knows what will happen, if the game is real anyway.
If Lupinko is dropping hints, it's in the works. There are plenty of CAPCOM characters I'd like to see return, most notably Megaman in some form (Volnutt is my alltime fave) and Soki or a rep that plays similarly. TvC and MvC2 are still my all time favorites. I understood those games -_- ...still learning this one.
Anyway, I need Dante back, Vergil too I guess. Hopefully not the new ones if there isn't an old Dante/Vergil alt costume (complete with voices) that I can use. I don't like those other two guys at all. Nope.
Dante, Vergil, Megaman X, Volnutt, whatever. Just not lil chibi megaman. No thanks. Soki, Samanosuke, Jubei, whatever. Gene. Spencer (yep), Arthur, Jin, Unknown Soldier, Saki Omokane, Strider Hiryu and Hien, Captain Commando, wow...this could be the greatest Vs game ever if they get it right, and they can do whatever they want with their characters which means continued support.
They seriously had to get permission from Marvel to give Captain America a double jump. Seriously wth.....
I am hype for this. Please use the UMvC3 engine. Please.
Dante is a nice check that you can cash at any liquor store. Haggar is a money order. ~loffter
