A new character for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 leaked

Initial reporting by Jason Fanelli

It takes a keen pair of eyes to spot big-time leaks like this one, and thankfully for fans of both the Street Fighter series and the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds GamerNode’s Associate Editor has just such a pair of eyes. With said optical organs, Jason Fanelli noticed that a picture from a shopping site’s preview held a surprise character for the game not yet announced.

That’s right, Akuma, the prayer-bead wearing younger brother of Ryu’s sensei, looks to be joining the incredible line-up already unveiled for Marvel vs. Capcom 3.  This news comes from the picture above as seen on the website ShopTo.net.

Apparently, with a pre-order of MvC3 on ShopTo, shoppers receive a free Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Comic Book for which the website offers a few pictoral peeks. One of the pictures probably should have stayed under wraps.

While there’s no official confirmation from Capcom yet, it’s a solid bet that Akuma will be the newest contender in what promises to be a great fighting game. Look for Akuma and the rest of the gang to hit store shelves February 15 in North America.

Until then, enjoy some Akuma footage from his debut in Street Fighter II Turbo.
