    “Marvel vs. Capcom 3″ adds two new ladies

    Today, Capcom announced two new characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 – Ororo Munroe, better known as Storm, and Crimson Viper, a recent addition to the Street Fighter franchise. They’ll be joining She-Hulk, Magneto, M.O.D.O.K., Spider-Man, X-23, Dormammu, Thor, Deadpool, Hulk, Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Doom, Super-Skrull, Zero, Arthur, Nathan “Rad” Spencer, Wesker, Tron Bonne, Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu, Dante, Ryu, Morrigan, Chris Redfield, Felicia, Trish and Chun-Li in what is quickly becoming a fighting title that will live up to its predecessors based on rosters alone.

In fact, we may be getting closer to completely negating the concept of the uncanny valley in gaming, and that should be welcomed. (This certainly explains why it’s taking so long to create this game – I have to wonder, however, if the character models that fit into the “random people walking around” category are going to suffer and ruin the overall effect – we’ll just have to see.) Watch the video below to see how the process works (men with 1940s hairstyles are involved) and get a look at
