Akuma pops up in retailer’s Marvel vs. Capcom 3 artwork

Okay, okay, we get it: Akuma is going to make an appearance in Marvel vs. Capcom 3!

Following a series of rumors and leaks, retailer Shopto.net has added a piece of artwork featuring the little devil to its listing for the game. The fighter appears alongside other confirmed characters, and has a MvC3-style appearance, lending credibility to the image. The image is apparently taken from the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 comic book that folks will receive with the pre-order of the game.

With the game out in February, there’s not much more time for Capcom to wrap up the character reveals for the game. The Japanese-language development blog for the title has the game’s producer Ryota Niitsuma hinting at more reveals as soon as next week, with the remainder by month’s end, spread across web and print sources. We’ll keep our eyes peeled.
