Win stuff: Capcom lays down MVC3 shadow character guantlet!

Thursday, 22nd April 2010 17:35 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Capcom’s pointed out that no site’s yet guessed all the characters shadowed in the just-released Marvel Vs Capcom 3 announcement artwork. Get it right and we’ll give you something. Not sure what yet, but it’ll be Marvel Vs Capcom 3-related. OK?


So far, no website has guessed all the #MvC3 shadows correctly!

Go on, then. Who are they? have a look at the images below. We’ll get some copies of the game from Capcom if you can sort it out. Maybe some other stuff. Who knows?

Stick your guesses in the comments. We know you’ve already had a bit of a stab at this when the game was first leaked, but let’s seal the deal. Close the book. Waste the puppy.

Help us help you help us. For the win.

The game’s out next year.

    Could the third shadow in Capcom be Crimson Viper? Not sure but the pony tail makes me think of her and the air is high enough for her weird haircut…

    ^3 i dont agree with. In which 2 i know are wrong.

    I’m 100% sure on all but 2 of them myself.

    #13 5 years ago
  14. Patrick Garratt

    OK. Let’s get them into two lists, both left from right. Marvel first, then Capcom.

    #14 5 years ago
  15. Gekidami

    Left to right in relation to this pic Pat?
    Because in the other one Marvel and Capcom characters are mixed.

    i dont know who they are exactly yet but i do know one thing, the artist of the the 2nd image sucks ass. If they are gonna pay somebody to do the art at least pay somebody that can draw. Anatomy on all the characters is bogus, there is no dominant light source (in the line work), the line-weight is all over the place, and the characters are not proportioned correctly. All that on top of the fact that the artist feathering technique is non-existent and detail is not carefully placed.
    The colorist (if not the same guy) did an okay job with the light source but the brushing isnt very professional.

    I will figure out the shadow characters soon enough.

    @18 – Awesome!

    @15 – Yep, that one too. We’ll win yet!

    @12 – Sorry, didn’t see that! That’s wicked.

    #20 5 years ago
  21. Patrick Garratt

    Right. I’ll save those two. I’ll have to ask them if either of them’s right, as there’s a few differences there.

    #21 5 years ago
  22. Gekidami

    The only ones i’m unsure of have question marks. I’m pretty certain the rest are right.

    Any more on that split pic?

    #24 5 years ago
  25. Erthazus

    I reconstructed my old one if you need. It’s a little bit better. Send it anyway.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. spiderLAW

    okay this is what i have got so far

    split image
    Marvel left to right = Captan America, Dr. Doom, Blade (i dont think deadpool cuz i see a collar although it could be his newer form as seen in ultimate alliance 2), Thanos (for sure), and Magneto (could be Sabertooth cuz hes got claws in te second image, shit could even be Venom)
    Capcom left to right – Felicia, Wesker, C.Viper, Chun Li, Dante

    Combined image left to right – Felicia, Thanos, Captain America, Dr. Doom, Dead Pool/Blade, Chun Li, Magneto (again, could be sabertooth, or even Onslaught), C. Viper, Dante, Wesker(cuz i see a gun but it could be Frank West and thats the tip of his Leather Jacket i see.)

    Damn image has to be so friggin vague on its sillouettes…shit if they had seperated them insted of merging them, this would be simple as pie.

    Spawn isn’t a Marvel Character by the way

    #27 5 years ago
  28. Patrick Garratt

    I’m going to send all this off to Capcom in the morning.

    @ DJ Deathstar, your’e right. I’ve already removed my 2nd picture and have another suggestion.

    Marvel: Cpt. America, Dr. Doom, Deadpool, Super Skrull and perhaps Magneto.

    Capcom: Felicia, Frank West,(???) Trish (???), Chun Li and finally Dante.

    Its not Super Skrull.
    It is definitely Thanos. Trust me. Look up pictures of Thanos and then match it up to the sillouette. Super Skrull is a rare 3rd tier character that they are not gonna put in a game like this.

    #30 5 years ago
  31. Erthazus

    Last attempt and this is probably it, except two characters. Maybe he is an Iron Fist or Tyran. Probably Tyran.
    And other one maybe Skrull or Thanos.

  32. bullitt aka jan

    i think
    -captain america (obviously)
    -dr. doom (also obviously)
    -pretty sure deadpool,because i don’t know who else could match the shiloutte
    -super skrull (thanos is imo bigger/to big than/for the silouette)
    -hmm thats a hard one maybe carnage or venom but theres some sort of cape that makes me uncertain,iron fist also possible as well as tyran
    this is the hardest one

    -its pretty obviously dante,but where’s the sword? because if they miss the sword it could be vergil or nero as well
    -chun-li (definitely)
    -that one is a bit ricky,it might be trish or crimson viper but the hair is more like trish’s
    -frank west (pretty sure)

    @ 32
    Like a said before though. The artist does not draw proportions very well. Chris Redfield would be just as big or bgger than Dante and definitely would be bigger than Morigan but the artist doesnt seem to notice. Look at the Hulk and Wolverine. Hulk is supposed to be towering at 8ft tall and wolverine is a small guy at 5’2″ – 5’4″ but in the artist rendition, if you stand wolverine straight up, he’ll represent a man at 7′ tall. Either that or Hulk has shrunk to 6′ some how
    the head gear and soulder pads tells all, its not skrull. its thanos.

    I dont know. I guess it is a possibilty. Maybe Super Skrull is in it. Cheers to you guys if you are right.
