TGS: The scoop on Marvel Vs. Capcom 3’s new fighters

I’ve got a hands-on interview with Seth Killian on Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, but our Internet is so jank here in Tokyo that I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get it to you. For now, take this nugget that I gleaned from Seth in the midst of our chat. 

As you might have guessed, Tron Bonne plays a lot like she did in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. Other than a new Level 3 super (which I think we got a look at in the Tron Bomme/X-23 reveal trailer from yesterday), she’s going to be the same lego torturing hot-bot jockey that you know and love.

X-23 is going to be something else. She will not be a Wolverine clone, though she does have some “brutal rushdowns,” and “some exciting unblockable techniques where if you’re able to attack high she’s able to assist low.” She’s also “one of the fastest characters in the game” and though she can “reattach limbs,” she wont be using that skill; severed limbs would push Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 out of the T rating category.

So quadriplegic fans, no limbless teenage mutants for you here.
