Rumour: Strider and Frank West still on for Marvel vs Capcom 3

File this one under “extremely dubious” and “probably shop’d”, but an image has appeared apparently showing Strider and Dead Rising’s Frank West in Marvel vs Capcom 3.

As Destructoid rightly points out, the image crop is suspicious, showing only the character’s names – reasonably easy to mock up – rather than their much tricker in-game appearances.

Both characters are known to have been slated for inclusion in the game, only to be cut in late 2010, which lends credence to the possibility of finding vestigial traces among the game’s assets – much as the DLC-only Jill Valentine was uncovered by hackers.

In the latter case, the hackers posted multiple images and even videos – why go to all that effort for a single cropped screen?

The other possibility is an attempt at guerrilla viral marketing by Capcom ahead of an official announcement. I’m not holding my breath.
