Remember that slow, meticulous character reveal we predicted for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Uh ... never mind. It appears that artwork of all twelve of the new characters has been revealed. The images were pulled by Joystiq from Capcom's own servers (example) after they started leaking in forums. Unless this is an elaborate hoax on Capcom's part, the characters would seem to be legit. The new roster includes:

  • Strider
  • Firebrand
  • Vergil
  • Frank West
  • Phoenix Wright
  • Nemesis
  • Ghost Rider
  • Dr Strange
  • Nova
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Hawkeye
  • Iron Fist
We know what you're thinking, because we're wondering the same thing: How is Capcom going to work these guys into Marvel vs. Capcom 3's intricate story?

See images of each new character in the gallery below. You can also find trailers for the officially announced characters after the break.
