Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Unlockable Characters

Bummer, was hoping all characters would be unlocked from the start, planing on playing this game with some friends later today so that its our first time playing it, and 2 of the locked characters are part of my team -.-

We got this game yesterday and had unlocked all the characters within twenty minutes…. Might as well have come unlocked to be fair! Getting the character bios etc is a lot harder as you have to deliver the killing blow to galactacus with them (it doesn’t matter who you chose as your main character)

Ken, Cyclops, Sagat, Bison, Vega too many more to list. I guess these characters might be available later along with some others at a price. Ripped off.

What about ghost rider, blanka, m.bison and venom? those should be in it! overall 5/10


On October 8, 2011 at 7:53 am

Well ghost Rider is on the new roster Update coming out. I’m still waiting on the good roster update . BTW it comes out Nov 15. The list is pretty lame . No ken ,M.Bison Omega Red. The list goes on and on. They made some Zero’s on the upcoming update .

Ya need to realize that they don’t wanna include the same characters everytime. Sure they left out some good ones, but that’s why they you should keep your old vijea games incase your having a fit about needing to whoop apocaypse’s ass or bust out the deathly hyper combo with war machine, iron man, and ryu. I’m satisfied with this third installment, having grown up playing one and two on dreamcast and ps 1 and 2.

ALSO, Captain America and Morrigan still Pwn!
