She-Hulk and Zero (and more) Join MvC3

Capcom announced two new characters to the roster of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds: Zero from the Mega Man X franchise and She-Hulk. Furthermore, information on DLC characters have arisen, as well.

Zero was one of the top Maverick Hunters in the Mega Man X series, and alongside X, he fought and vanquished the likes of Sigma, the head of the Mavericks. It turns out he was actually designed by Dr. Wily in order to destroy X, but in a confrontation with Sigma, the evil, virus-like code attached to him and erased Zero's main objectives, at least until Mega Man X5. He is also the star of the four-game Mega Man Zero franchise, though his looks are different from what is seen here.

She-Hulk is Jennifer Susan Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner (the original Hulk), and after she is given a blood transfusion with him in order to live, she is given Hulk-like powers. Unlike the Hulk, She-Hulk is more Amazonian in build, and Jennifer controls this form entirely and coherently. She only has some of the massive strength that the Hulk has, but she also has faster reflexes and athletic ability compared to the brute strength the Hulk releases at the price of speed.

After revealing the new characters, Capcom also detailed the Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Special Edition package, which includes two DLC characters downloaded for free. Note that these codes for DLC characters will not be redeemable until the characters' releases, planned for some two months later.

The two characters confirmed for DLC so far are Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil franchise and Shuma-Gorath, the demonic enemy of Doctor Strange. Others are not known, but these two are included in the Special Edition package, seen above.

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is the next game in the Capcom Vs. Series, headed to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on February 18th next year.
